Tabletop Towns – SciFi Tiles Phase One

What is it?

Those of you who have been reading this website for a while will be aware of one of our longest standing series of 2014, the Kickstarter Highlight series. It was during the duration of the highlight posts that we found out about Julian G Hicks, a guy who was producing some sci-fi storage containers for his soon to be launched Tabletop Towns tiles.

He’s back once more with Phase One of his Sci-Fi Tiles Kickstarter Campaign, which you can check out here. This time, he was after just £950 which he has already passed at nearly £1250 as of the time of writing.

These are simply double-sided 3″ square plasti-card floor plan tiles. That might sound like a lot of gobbledegook at first, but basically these are 3″ by 3″ square tiles which are used as floor plans for your tabletop RPG campaigns and skirmishes. Being double sided and with all of the different tiles and products within the Tabletop Towns repertoire, you can truly begin to imagine this is going to become a large range of products for Tabletop Towns.

Heck, what if you just wanted to design your own game and wanted a visual way to design it? These would give great visual feedback for the novice game designer, so it’s worth noting how these could have more uses than first meets the eye.

What do they need funding for?

Well the £950 the creators were requesting were to guarantee the first production-ready print run of these tile sets. The money will also be going towards paying for the art that is on the tiles.

It’s a really small ask for some really beautifully presented tabletop campaign tiles.
