Board Game Bag and Board Game Calendar

Recommended Posts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1296268806/board-game-bag-and-board-game-calendar/description

This is an updated, as in reinforced, version of the bag first brought out by

Board Game Tables .com

With an advertised interior dimension of 12"x12"x20" / 31CMx31Cmx51CM this bag will easily accommodate several of the Reaper Paint Boxes [which are enough larger than a Plano deep tackle box to make it difficult to find a tote for] plus all your painting supplies, including an OTT Light in padded security.

I'm picking up a couple of these for my own paints and boardgames

I don’t see myself ever having a need to take a bag this big filled with this many board games anywhere.

 

However it does remind me of how back in my AD&D days as a DM, when we rotated whose house we played at, I’d have  to carry a large sportsbag filled with all the rulebooks, boxes of miniatures and all the rest of the paraphernalia that a DM typically needed. Bag was filled to the max and heavy. So I could see it being useful for RPGs with minis.

 

It could be useful for carrying the terrain (buildings/vehicles/trees/etc) for my Walking Dead games, and other games I might get into that demand similar amounts of terrain. 

 

Actually I just went back to the project to check the end date and I see that’s in ten days. Even though I might be tempted but undecided that makes it a definite no go for me.

It's definitely tempting given the price ($29 USD + $8 USD shipping means it'll be around $50 CAD) but it would be competing with money for new paints plus whatever new stuff Talon Games comes out with... >.>;;;;  It would allow us to carry more than just Clank! to the gaming place though... Hmmm...

I'm picking up one for my Reaper Paint Boxes and a second one for the board-games I tote along when we visit the grandkidlets.

I have the first version in addition to two Cajon bags. Definitely high quality in comparison to the Cajon Bags.

The backpack shoulder strap for the first version ripped for me when I was swinging it onto (or off) my back with a full set of games.  This happened to several other owners but I know of at least one that sent the bag in and got a new one back.  I probably should have done the same.  And there is a video out there comparing bags and one is a Cajon bag that looks EXACTLY like the bag they sold.  So I'm thinking they just threw their name on an existing Cajon bag and got that made for them without any real testing.  

 

So I am a little annoyed at them.  That being said they call out exactly what went wrong and how they aim to fix it (and they did give my friend a new bag with no issue).  I'm still sitting on this one, debating internally if I should trust them a second time.  Helping them out is the fact that I prefer this form factor over what I currently have.

I picked up their older bag version at Origins this year - for $20, it was almost too good to pass up. I'm mostly planning on using it to tote and store MtG stuff, but I was pretty impressed.

I have their first edition (got it at Gen Con for $20)  and it has held up pretty well on the 10 or so trips full of games it has made.  its also served occasionally as a mini tote, hamper and spare luggage bag and also served these purposes admirably.  I do like the backpack configuration although it does leave you feeling a little awkward.

 

Only reason I am not backing is that I really don't need another one...

I got the first one from some online sale...I think maybe even their website. I almost bought more than one but decided to try it out first. 

 

I have been super careful with the bag (and my Cajon bags), which has made it so the straps have survived being full of CW stuff and other things without broken straps and whatnot. No swinging and no sudden movements or other craziness.

 

I am debating getting one of these. I don't really need a forth bag, but a backup might be a decent idea.

Suggested to the creator for a future KS for a bag with miniature trays.

Don’t know that I’d care to swing a bag full of minis over my shoulder and wear it like a backpack even if all the minis were in trays.

RE:  Mini Trays

I put a comment up on interest in a mini tray system and the creator of the Kickstarter has inquired about the Reaper Forums  discussion.

I gave him my input, suggesting that with the multi-axis carrying capabilities of this bag any system for mini transport would need arrangements for either magnetic basing or for some sort of cocooning for individual minis so they don't get bumped about excessively.

Will request a "THIS SIDE UP" arrow patch if I hear back from him. :lol:

      Bill Webb's Decks of Dirty Tricks 
      Bill Webb's Deck of Dirty Tricks has been used and enjoyed for years in convention and home campaigns. It was made for use during game sessions to encourage unexpected events and player interactivity. It has proved to be one of Frog God Games' most popular products and now new decks are available!Each card has a flavor test of a pop culture reference, meme, pun, or worse. Such as… What is this? An invisibility cloak for ants? Followed by a mechanical thing to happen in game. Such as… Target gains invisibility for 3 rounds.
      Options are available for 1,2, or 3 decks (your choice).
      The available decks are-
      The Classic Deck of Dirty Tricks The dungeon-themed - “Bill Webb’s Deck of Dirty Tricks, Volume II” A more Wilderness themed" Bill Webb’s Deck of Dirty Tricks, Volume III" Plus…
      The full deal- Get all three decks and a SIGNED copy of Bill Webb’s Book of Dirty Tricks
      The Classic Deck of Dirty Tricks.
      Made for use during game sessions to encourage unexpected events and player interactivity. The cards are all printed with suggestions for changes in the narration and their potential mechanical implications. It is system neutral but works best with any one of the many variations of the world's most popular roleplaying game.
      The New Expansion Decks of Dirty Tricks
      We are bringing 2 new decks for this Indiegogo project. We are also reprinting the classic (and sold out classic Deck of Dirty tricks . The expansion decks are planned for 48 cards with, often requested blank cards for creating your very own "dirty tricks" for your home or convention game.

      The Tiny Print Run
      Why Indiegogo?
      Frog God Games is continuing the use of this IndieGoGo crowdfunding method for Deck of Dirty Tricks This method is almost the inverse of how we design our crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter. We call it the 'Tiny Print Run'.
      Thus, Indiegogo projects by Frog God Games will-
      ·         Be short in duration
      ·         Be limited to a single title
      ·         Have options priced between $5-$50
      ·         Have simple fulfillment process that does not use Backerkit
       
      Why the Tiny Print Run?
      Since 2012 our crowdfunding approach has been extravagant in every way. Ambitious with massive page counts, plus numerous add-on options and stretch goals. All supporting a primary title itself as many as 990 pages.
      This has resulted in Kickstarter's with memorable pledge rewards that include top-quality hardcover books with sometimes dozens of stretch goal bonuses and add-on extras. These are awesome AND they are expensive to buy for customers like you because they are very expensive to make for publishers like us.
      Why not use Kickstarter?
      We will still be using Kickstarter, frequently, for our large-scale projects. These smaller projects are happening in response to the feedback we have heard from both fans and 'almost' fans alike. We hear the request for less expensive options for our projects and products all the time. A second frequent desire expressed to us, whether at conventions, on social media or in email, is for a larger selection of smaller, faster-paced adventures that can be completed in 2-3 sessions and not necessitate a full two year campaign.
      Additionally, Frog God Games has grown in both sales and brand awareness.  This opportunity will give us the additional resources to invest in the very best books in all of our formats. 
      Project Reward 
      With the wishes of the fans in mind, this and future Indiegogo projects will fund standalone projects that are both affordable and fun. This project, as well future Tiny Print Run projects, is narrowly focused. 
      Project Delivery
      PDF Perks
      We will email the instructions to all eligible supporters with instructions on accessing PDF items. The PDF files are distributed using Constant Contact service and our web store. You will need to have a customer account on the Frog God Games website to get your PDF; it's how we keep track of everything and grants unlimited access by you to your reward.

That code we will be sent via Constant Contact to the address provided by Indiegogo. Please contact us with any questions/requests about this.
