Wyrmwood Tabletop Tiles

Created by Wyrmwood Gaming

Tabletop Tiles are a brand new, modular system from Wyrmwood to help organize and enhance your game night. Designed with both board games and RPGs in mind, there's options for every gamer and game group, and the modular nature of the system makes it easy to choose the best configuration for your needs. Magnets installed on each side of a Tile allow it to connect to others and be removed or re-positioned at any time. Posts allow Tiles to be stacked and nested for easy storage. The cups are also color-coded to mark the "north" side of each tile for proper magnet orientation on the table. Integrated coasters on the underside of most Tiles means that even when you're not gaming, your Tabletop Tiles will continue to earn their place on your table. Each Tabletop Tile is available in our beautiful array of domestic and exotic hardwoods. You can choose a different wood for each Tile you order, or opt for a matched set. Can't decide? Love variety? Choose "Roll The Dice" on any product to receive the item in a randomly chosen wood (Cherry price and up)! If ordering multiple Roll The Dice items, they're guaranteed to be different woods! Say goodbye to your messy game table. Order your Tabletop Tiles today!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

First Look at Completed Tiles, Final Card Tile Design, and Hero Vault 2.0 Campaign LAUNCH Date!
4 days ago – Thu, Aug 15, 2019 at 09:46:42 PM

Hello again, backers!

Last time, we showed you a glimpse of the beginning of the Tabletop Tile production process... we felt we'd be remiss if we didn't share with you what they looked like once they reached the other side:

Above is the first batch of completed Tabletop Tiles.  Obviously many are still to come, but as we only showed the early stages in the last update, we definitely wanted to share this image with you.  And that's not all!  We've got an upgrade to the Card Tile - long awaited, but here it is!


Continuous slots allow for more flexible arrangements

For comparison, here's the  new design, placed next to the original.


The original design is on the left - note the addition of an entire extra slot, as well
The original design is on the left - note the addition of an entire extra slot, as well

We think this is a big improvement and a solid win - we weren't positive we could reliably make the full-extension slot work, and avoid blowout during the production, but we have solved that issue and are quite pleased with the final result.  We hope you will be, as well - especially once you get a chance to put it to use!



Though we're still in the same phase, let's check in on the timeline...

Continuing on from our last update, we have some new media to share concerning the project working its way through development, as the Tabletop Tiles project moves out of development and into production.

The new Hero Vault campaign will be launching at the end of this month.  Does this new case, with options for dice or roleplaying miniatures, seem like something you're going to be interested in?  Just follow us here on Kickstarter, if you don't already, so you can be notified the moment it goes live.  Of course, we'll also send out an email to our newsletter subscribers the moment it launches.  To join in and get emails concerning our latest promotions, convention appearances and more, click here.


Wyrm Lyfe Season 2 Finale: Gen Con!

In our last update, we were about to set out for Indianapolis.  So how did Gen Con go?  Check out this episode of Wyrm Lyfe for a rundown!

There's much more to come - stay tuned!  As always, thank you, everyone, for your support!  None of us would be here without you.

Production Begins! Gen Con Preview, New Product Designs & More!
21 days ago – Mon, Jul 29, 2019 at 11:11:26 PM

Hello again, backers!


It's been a while!  We wanted to check in with some long-awaited, very welcome news... Tabletop Tile production is officially underway!

Coasters Reporting for Duty...
Coasters Reporting for Duty...

We're in the early stages, but what you see before you will become some of the first runs of Tabletop Tiles.  We have been developing final designs and going through tests the past few months, and we're finally ready to start producing in earnest.  We'll post much more soon, but we feel confident and are ready to hit the ground running with production.



We'll be moving several of our craftspeople on the Tabletop Tiles team shortly, and ramping up production quickly, so there should be much more to see soon.


We do believe we're still well on track to begin fulfillment in October, and we'll notify you if we have any reason to believe that will need to change.




It's the most wonderful time of year... that's right - GEN CON is upon us again!


If you'll be in Indianapolis this coming weekend, we hope you'll say hello - you can see our accessories, including officially licensed Dungeons & Dragons products, our full line of furniture, and, of course, some Tabletop Tiles on display (not for sale, of course).  If you haven't gotten any hands-on time with them, or anything else we offer, now's your chance!  And what's more - we'll be unveiling our BRAND NEW booth design!  Want to see a preview of all we've got in store?  Check out the latest episode of our behind-the-scenes, NSFW-despite-being-at-work vlog, Wyrm Lyfe:



We can't wait to see you there - come find us at Booth #2603!



What's Next for Wyrmwood? 


As you're probably aware, there's never time to rest here at Wyrmwood - as we move this project into production and fulfillment, there's always new ideas being developed, and we're pleased to announce that there will be a new campaign launching, right here on Kickstarter, very soon!



This project launches our latest accessory, a ground-up redesign of our Hero Vault.  In the years since we launched the original Hero Vault, we've expanded our capabilities quite a bit, and have tweaked the design to be both more attractive AND more functional.  And what's more, the form factor of the Tabletop Tiles inspired us - the new Hero Vault design shares the Tabletop Tile footprint, so it won't look out of place with your Tile setup!


Sharp-eyed viewers may have caught a preview in the above episode of Wyrm Lyfe - we'll have a VERY limited number of new, prototype Hero Vaults available at Gen Con as a convention exclusive.  But for an earlier glimpse at the prototypes from early development, you can check out this prior episode, as well:



To stay up to date, be sure to follow us here on Kickstarter, or - even better - sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on everything Wyrmwood.

That's about it for now - thanks for your support, as always, and we can't wait to begin fulfillment!  To wrap things up, here, once again, is the project timeline:

Development Underway; Fun Numbers, and Coaster Testing
2 months ago – Wed, Jun 12, 2019 at 11:20:28 PM

Hey backers!


Okay, so that update title is a little bit ironic, but still, we do have some numbers for those of you into that sort of thing.

But first, some general information:

  • BackerKit has locked down.  This means any orders that were completed by the deadline have been locked for further editing (except for shipping address, which you are free to change when needed).
  • All of the above pledges have been charged, where there was a balance.
  • As late surveys are completed, we will continue to lock and charge these on a weekly basis, moving forward, to try and capture as much information as possible and avoid late delivery on these pledges.

Development

At this stage, we're mapping out the final designs and getting ready to produce in earnest.  We'll have photos to share of the production once it begins, but that's still to come, so we don't have any fun images yet, regrettably.

But we'll share final designs prior to production so you can see what to expect - most will be nearly identical to the prototypes shown on the campaign page, but some (Caster Tile, Dice Dungeon) will receive notable improvements.  More on these soon! :)


The Numbers

With lots of data on what has been ordered now in BackerKit, we have some details on the breakdown of Tiles, woods and more - this is obviously interesting to us, but we thought that it may be to some of you, as well.  Let's take a look!


Most popular Tabletop Tile design: Solo

This wasn't even close.  With more than twice as many ordered as the next highest, the Solo Tile dominated.  Here's the full breakdown:

Solo: 6,016

Rolling: 2,652

Duo: 2,625

Card: 2,292

Caster Tile: 1,528

Trio: 1,198

Dice Dungeon: 956

Tile of Shame: 833

TOTAL TILES: 18,100


Most popular wood selection: Roll The Dice

The most popular wood selection was not actually a selection at all - Roll The Dice, always very popular, absolutely crushed it here, with more than FOUR TIMES as many selections as the most popular wood (the entry selection, Red Oak).  Honorable mention goes to Monkeywood, which had a very strong showing for its first time being available in a Wyrmwood campaign!

Roll The Dice: 7,636

Red Oak: 1,850

Black Walnut: 1,702

Hickory: 1,393

Cherry: 649

White Oak: 618

Bolivian Rosewood: 465

Padauk: 463

Aromatic Cedar: 420

Black Poisonwood: 348

Monkeywood: 317

Wenge: 242

Lacewood: 226

Bloodwood: 179

Spalted Tamarind: 159

Purpleheart: 158

Kingwood: 151

Zebrawood: 119

Mahogany: 115

Canarywood: 114

Katalox: 113

Bubinga: 110

Bamboo: 96

Ziricote: 83

Goncalo Alves: 78

Macassar Ebony: 66

Teak: 58

Claro Walnut: 52

Birds Eye Maple: 51

Red Zebrawood: 42

Marblewood: 27

Most popular add-on: Compass Coaster artwork by Deven Rue

The most popular add-on was a Deven Rue compass coaster - a nice aesthetic upgrade for any Tile!  A whopping 802 of these have been ordered - the most popular design?  Augrudeen, which accounted for nearly half of the orders.


As you can see, coordinating all of the production ahead will be quite a challenge, but luckily we've been planning for it and feel confident and ready for the work ahead.  We'll share more about the nuts and bolts once we have the final development completed, but we're working out precisely what shop resources to shift where to make sure everything gets covered properly.  We do not anticipate having to revise deadlines at this stage.

Speaking of deadlines, let's check in again on our timeline!

Tabletop Tile Coaster Stress Test

Our YouTube series, Wyrm Lyfe, takes an inside look at Wyrmwood and the people who work there.  In this week's episode, there's some footage concerning the Tabletop Tiles; specifically, a stress test of the coaster's response to liquid, which has been a concern expressed by some.  Enjoy!  And, if you're looking for more, subscribe - new episodes release every Wednesday!  https://www.youtube.com/wyrmwoodtv

BackerKit Lockdown TOMORROW!
3 months ago – Fri, May 31, 2019 at 12:15:03 AM

Hey backers!


BackerKit Lockdown!

We're checking in to remind everyone that if you have any changes to make to your BackerKit information, now is the time.  Surveys will be locked down tomorrow evening, May 31, meaning that no changes will be available (except to your mailing address).

As of this writing, there are still manysurveys on production-based tiers that have not been filled out - please check your email for the invitation, and reminders from BackerKit - be sure to check your spam folder if you don't recall seeing them!

We're basing our production numbers on your survey responses - so if we don't have your response, we cannot plan for your order.  If we cannot plan for your order, we cannot craft your order, and if we cannot craft your order... you see where this is going: if you don't fill out your survey, your order fulfillment could be delayed as a result.  So please make that a priority immediately if you have not already done so. :)


Development: Caster Tile & Card Tile


We've gotten some questions concerning these Tiles - we've been exploring options, and at this time we have some significant concerns about the notion of a Card Tile with full-length slots, and have decided against pursuing that design change.  The concerns include both immediate, production-based concerns, as well as long-term reliability concerns.

All of that is to say that the Card Tile will remain as pictured for this campaign.  We may explore an alternative design later on, but that is outside the scope of this project.

Regarding the Caster Tile, we do not have an image to share of the final design as of yet, but to reiterate - we will be ensuring there are enough slots at each level so that it can work for all major Spellcaster classes.

As stated, we're locking down surveys tomorrow, so be sure to complete yours immediately if you haven't done so!  Once this is done, we'll be tallying the numbers and planning production - more about that soon!


Closing Notes: Some Fun Numbers

Based on the numbers we have so far, what are the most popular wood choices?  Tile options?

We'll go more in depth on these soon, but here are some quick notes:

  • Most Popular Tile: The Solo Tile 
  • Top Wood Choice: Roll The Dice! 
  • Top Three Non-RTD Wood Selections (in no particular order): Red Oak, Hickory, Black Walnut 
  • Total Tiles Ordered: 17,215 (we're going to be busy for a while!) 

More to come soon!

BackerKit Survey Going Out NOW! Important Information Inside!
4 months ago – Thu, May 02, 2019 at 11:22:03 PM

 Hey, everyone!


We're going to do our best to keep this one brief, but there's a lot to cover, so... we're almost certainly going to fail in that goal. ;)

As indicated in our timeline, which you'll find below, we are sending out the BackerKit survey to all backers right now - keep an eye on your inbox (and spam filter!).



BackerKit Notes

Before you rush off to your survey, here are a few quick things to note that you may not be expecting:

1) Custom Text Engravings

There are two versions of each Tile - one with a custom engraving, and one without.  So if you'd like a Solo Tile engraved, you can select that version, which bundles the engraving cost in with the add-on itself, rather than adding a "custom engraving" add-on by itself.


2) Moving your pledge from Add-On Only to a Tabletop Tiles Wave

If you're in the add-on tier and decide you'd like to order Tiles after all (including the Dice Dungeon), you can change your pledge tier.  This option can be found first thing, when you follow the link to your survey, below the big "Get Started!" button.  This will move you to the final production wave tier that was open during the campaign, since that tier had plenty of room when the campaign closed.  Doing this is the only way to gain access to the Tabletop Tiles as an Add-On Only backer.


3) Adding to your pledge & payment information

You are free to add as much as you like to your pledge, not necessarily just select the items you had in mind when you backed.  We understand that many of you pledged the minimum tier value as a placeholder, intending to make your selections at this point.  Go for it!

BackerKit will automatically make sure your order is complete and fully covered, including shipping.  If the items you select for your pledge add up to more than the amount of your Kickstarter pledge, that's okay - it just means there's one more step to complete.  You'll be automatically prompted for payment information.  This will not be charged immediately; all payment methods on file will be charged on June 3rd (see the fulfillment timeline).


4) Development changes: Card Tile & Caster Tile

As you may or may not know, we're exploring some changes to some of the Tile designs - the Caster Tile and the Card Tile, in particular.  The Caster Tile is receiving some minor corrections to ensure that all 5E casting classes can work with it, while the Card Tile may get elongated slots that run through the entirety of the Tile, instead of stopping short of the edges.

These changes have not yet been done, so we can't show them yet, nor are they reflected in the BackerKit photography, but we are prioritizing it so we can do so before the surveys lock down in a month. We'll post images in a Kickstarter update as soon as they're available.




Campaign Timeline: The Road to Fulfillment

We'll share this in all future updates, just so everyone is clear about where we are in the process, and where we're headed:

  • Kickstarter Campaign Launches: March 19, 2019 - DONE! 
  • Kickstarter Campaign Ends, Funds Begin to be Collected: April 18, 2019  - DONE! 
  •  Wyrmwood Receives Funds, BackerKit Survey Sent: May 2, 2019 - IN PROGRESS 
  • BackerKit Survey Locks Down: May 31, 2019 
  • BackerKit Charges Processed: June 3, 2019 
  • Final Development, Pre-Production and Production: June 2019 - September 2019 
  • Wave 1 Fulfillment Begins: October 2019 
  • Wave 2 Fulfillment Begins: November 2019 
  • Wave 3 Fulfillment Begins: January 2020 
  • Wave 4 Fulfillment Begins: February 2020 
  • Wave 5 Fulfillment Begins: March 2020 
  • Wave 6 Fulfillment Begins: April 2020 
  • Pre-Order Fulfillment Begins: April/May 2020 
  • Fulfillment Concludes!

Current Step: Wyrmwood Receives Funds, BackerKit Survey Sent

At this point, Kickstarter has collected all the pledges, and is in the process of transmitting the funds to us.  All of your pledge info has been imported into BackerKit, which is now ready to roll.  A handful of you received your survey already, yesterday - the first wave was sent as a test so we could make sure everything was working as intended.  These look good, so we're proceeding with the full rollout today, as planned.  At this moment, email invitations are going out to all backers, at the address you backed the campaign with.  When you receive it, you can open it up and follow the instructions inside.

Once you arrive at BackerKit, you'll have a few quick questions to answer, and then move on to the most important part of the process: the add-on section, where you select all of your items.  This is how we know what items you pledged for.

In addition, you can also add items to your pledge in BackerKit!  So, if you missed anything, decided to get that one other Tile you were on the fence about, or want to add some meeples or a set of dice to top off your order, you can do it then, and add payment info and complete checkout right within BackerKit!  Your payment method will be charged later, according to the above timeline.

You'll have about one month to complete your survey before we lock them down.  At that time, your pledge is final and cannot be changed, except to update your shipping address.  So be sure to complete your survey before the lockdown date!  If you don't complete it by that time, your fulfillment may be delayed as a result.

But, that's all to come a bit later - and don't worry, before each step of the timeline occurs, we'll put out an update with full details, so you won't be caught by surprise.




And... GO!


That about does it for now - we're eager to see what everyone has selected, so keep a lookout for the survey and fill it out as soon as you can.  We'll share details on how your selections are trending in the next update.  Thanks for your support, and of course, we're here to help with any questions you may have!
