These look really cool....Really creative and functional looking.

 

I'm not sold on the materials and price yet....but it looks interesting. I will be following.

 

I just can't imagine those stools will hold up to any kind of weight if they are just cardboard....

I see what you're saying, but I believe it paints too uniform a picture of Europe. For example, in Italy they dine on slabs of marble while the Brits sleep on stone beds covered with ivy, and in Franc

All furniture in Europe is made out of cardboard, just as all furniture in Canada is made out of snow.    Or ice if you are rich.

Fact check: not all Americans have huge houses and lots of big cars. Cities are always cramped. My family of four lives in 800sq feet, and I take the bus to work; not for lack of money, but because it

I still won't participate in this one. While cardboard can be an incrediably strong a sturdy material I can see disaster looming during a game. It just wouldn't take much for an accidentally bump by a player or a bystander and there goes your game and miniatures to the floor.

Yeah, I'd worry about sturdiness as well. I have two folding 6ft x 3ft plastic tables that fold in half to make them 3x3 for transport that I got really cheap at Costco. These look like they are aren't much smaller when put away and look like a pain to pack/unpack. Staying away from it.

Apparently the Beasts of war people have some and were tossing each other on them and they didn't break.  Listening to Beeble Babble and they were talking about this and how cardboard furniture isn't uncommon in Europe.

That's all cool. I wish them luck with this KS, but not something that I'm at all interested in for my stated reasons.

No, cardboard furniture isn't uncommon in Europe, it is very rare. But it is possible to make furniture out of it and I heard there exist a store which sells such stuff. But more than 99% of the people do not have them and I think most of them never saw such furniture.

Surprised it is funding as fast as it is, considering no US shipping (actually no shipping outside strict EU). I guess if you only need 100 or so backers maybe you can get enough UK gamers to make it work.

These guys did a kickstarter for a cardboard standing desk.  They apparently do a whole range of cardboard furniture.  $80 for a standing desk when there is no reasonably-priced non-DIY alternative makes sense (also, made in USA scores points for me).  I don't think this KS makes sense when, as many people have pointed out, plastic folding tables are cheaper and more portable (I'd question more-stable, though I'd imagine they're comparable).

You can also get very cheap aluminum wallpapering tables which would be good for gaming and good transportable. Few bricks would make them or plastic tables stable enough and you still need a car anyway...
