Game tables feel like the ultimate tabletop luxury, desirable but expensive. Awkward too! If you’re not blessed with a lot of space, then where do you put them?
Project Wood’s Kingmaker solution is a table that can transform back and forth from a dining table to a gaming one. And like many other gaming tables, it has a whole host of accessories. The Kickstarter has a month to run and is at $45,000 of a $50,000 goal. You can find out more or pledge at the project page.
Project Wood offers various sizes of tables. They can come with wireless charging and separate game organisers, though, which to me just feels like master engineering.
Oh, and topper system is waterproof. It’s the toppers that enable the table to present either an inset dice rolling area or to act like a standard, perfectly flat, kitchen table.
LED lighting dominates when you want it to, as the pitch video shoes, and there are numerous trays to hold cups, dice and phones.
It takes less than a minute to transform it into a dining, gaming or work-table. Each of the variations is thought out to the smallest detail to be as useful as possible in your scenario.
All the tiers are limited as Project Wood will only make so many of these tables. Most are marked as early bird too.
The first tier, limited but not early bird, is $260 and called “construct your own table”. You have to pay shipping costs and, I presume, get sent the parts. Buying those parts is a thing you do from the Pledge Manager later.
Next up is the expected big hike. It’s $675 for a coffee table, albeit a transforming coffee table with LEDs, USB charging, toppers, topper storage and play mat.
$800 tiers are rewarded with a small table, which is suitable for about 4 people.
The medium or six-person table is the reward at $890 and then a jump to $1160 for the large or 8 people one.
In every case, shipping is excluded, and the delivery date is an impressively early July 2022.
Which tier is attracting the most attention? It’s the top one, the Kingmaker Large.
