Hey Realmspeople!

We had a stellar day today, with our 2nd biggest one day pledge ever!  Thank you all for supporting us on this journey!  Lots to cover, so lets get to it!

Live Events Past & Present!

Last weekend we spent some time at Tacoma Games showing off our table to all who would listen!  This weekend, we are headed to Arcane Comics in Shoreline WA to demo our tables once again!  If you haven't had a chance to see our tables, it will be a perfect time to see them!  And don't forget, the week after that we head to Portland!

Speaking of Live events, I hosted a Reddit AMA today, and was able to answer some questions for interested parties!  You can check out the whole AMA by clicking on the image below, or just go copy this into your browser:

FAQ Update!

If the whole Reddit thing is just too much to read, you can find the TL;DR in our FAQ!  Tina has combed through and grabbed some of the common questions and added them to our FAQ.

High Resolution Pictures

We're going to start higher resolution images on our Instagram feed for folks who want more pictures of the table!  We have taken tons of pictures, and are looking for a good way to share them.  Eventually we will have a full gallery on our website, www.WoodedRealms.com but for now, please follow @WoodedRealms on Instagram for more details!

Premium Accessories from C4 Labs!

If you have been following our updates, you'll know that C4 labs and their design team have been working hard on the designs for our premium package.  And they are now available!  Currently only the premium suite is available, which includes all the listed accessories, but you will have an opportunity to buy the pieces separately once the Kickstarter is over!

You can see some lovely pictures in the updated campaign page, check em out!

Canadian Shipping! Early Bird Extension!

Ok so for the Canadians in the room, here's what's happening with your shipping option!  I've spoken to approx. half of the group of potential partners, and it sounds like the shipping with customs and tariffs will be approx. $50 US additional for both the Standard and XL, meaning a Standard will be $500+$200, and the XL will be $599+$300.  I'll hear from the rest of our potential shippers in the next day or two, so that number may go down, but I think that's where we will be on Canadian shipping.  We'll keep you posted!

For your trouble we have decided to extend the Early Bird for the 2nd Breakfast Standard until Friday for everyone!  In the meantime, let's shoot for $500k!

Thanks so much for supporting Wooded Realms, and I'll be back with a new update very soon!

 What's up Realmsmen!

Once again we have a feast of updates that I am excited to share with you, and trust me, we haven't even gotten to the good stuff yet!  Some things are in the works that I think will bring you levels of joy heretofore unseen in the Wooded Realms!

LAST MINUTE ADD: I will be hosting a Reddit AMA on Monday, September 17th, at 10:00 AM PST at www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/

Enough hype, let's get into the details.  We've got a packed update for you today, starting with a bunch of announcements for ways to get involved with 2nd Breakfast, and for some of you, to see the table in person!  But first, lets get into some news that everyone will enjoy!

$250,000 Stretch Goal Unlocked! LEGS 4 ALL

Thank you all so much for backing us, and getting the word out about the 2nd Breakfast Kickstarter!  Every dollar you pledge brings me closer to my dream of working on Wooded Realms as a self-employed entrepreneur.  And one of the plans we've had from the start is to reward everyone with the option of three different leg heights!

That's right, if you have backed the 2nd Breakfast or 2nd Breakfast XL tables, you will now be able to choose from 3 different leg heights for your table, at no extra cost!  You will be able to choose:

  • Coffee Table height: A 2nd breakfast table, at a height perfect for your living room centerpiece!  Approx. 18-20" high, this option will let you deck out your living room or rec room with all of the benefits of the 2nd Breakfast table.  Available for the Standard or XL versions
  • Dinner Table height: The original!  Enjoy Breakfast & Bananagrams, 2nd Breakfast & Catan, Elevensies & House on Haunted Hill, Lunch & Sushi Go, Tea & Scrabble, Dinner & Dice Throne or Supper & Munchkin on our standard dinner table height legs, at approx. 29-31" high.  Available for the Standard or XL versions
  • Bar Top height: You ditched that back-breaking, sperm count-lowering sitting desk for work, now you can flex your core muscles and truly play as hard as you work (while drinking a cold beer of course) with our bar top height legs, approx. 40-42" high.  Available for the Standard or XL versions

The different leg heights will all offer the same AC and USB connectivity included with every 2nd Breakfast table, and will be interchangeable thanks to a few bolts and simple connectors between the table and the legs.  Every table includes 4 legs in the height of your choice.  Additional sets of legs at the other two heights will be available as add-ons after the campaign ends.

Multiple leg heights have been part of the 2nd Breakfast plan since day one, and we're happy to announce that our enthusiastic backers have gotten us to a point where we can safely offer all three options as a way to say THANK YOU for getting us this far with over half the campaign still left to go!

Live Events!  Come say hi in Tacoma WA, Seattle WA, or Portland OR before our Kickstarter ends!

We've got several events lined up for local PNW folks leading up to our Live Kickstarter Wrap Party!

Our first party is actually our second event, taking place at Arcane Comics in Shoreline, WA!  We'll be there during Board Game Night, from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM PST.  If we can Livestream the event, we will.  If not, we'll post pics!  Either way the event will be free for folks to attend!

If you'd like to volunteer to help out at this event or any others, please email volunteer@woodedrealms.com.

Our Reddit AMA!

For fans and backers who can't make our live events, I will be hosting an AMA on Monday September 17th from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM PST.  Join me there, and ask me anything.  ANYTHING AT ALL.

Speaking of questions...

Our FAQ has been massively updated!

We know you have questions.  We try to answer them personally, but I can only provide the depth of the playfield so many times before the Caps Lock key starts getting used.  I kid, I kid (Steve, FreebooterToys, and Eldessar you the real MVPs).

I wanted to re-post one of the As in the Q&A here because I think it's more appropriate for you all to hear, and also because it does a better job of expressing my opinion about this whole crazy experience than it does actually answering a question (all the other Qs have better As, tho).

I'll  leave you with this tidbit, until the next update!  Cheers! ~N

Q: What sets you apart from other gaming tables?  

A: A lot of people might expect us to say it is the value we represent, but the truth is that we, the individuals who started Wooded Realms, have been very privileged and lucky to be able to share our passion by making the 2nd Breakfast table. Not every craftsman, or salesperson, or business owner has access to the amazing support, resources, or quality of life that has allowed us to start a business we believe in.  We are grateful to be able to offer a table backed by skill, experience, and expertise. Every day we are humbled by the amazing support of our friends and family, and now the support of our backers and fans(!). That kind of real support, both emotional and monetary, going all the way back to our parents and grandparents, is what gives us the ability to realize our vision with both precision and conviction.  

Of course, every business who builds something they love feels the same way about their products and their fans. I believe that Wyrmwood, Geek Chic, Table of Ultimate Gaming, Board Game Tables, Geek 'N Son, Rathskellers, Bandpass Design, and every other board game table manufacturer past and present are all building their products for the love of the game. Every company's passion resonates on a different frequency, and no single frequency is right or wrong. If you have the space and the cash, there are some amazing heirloom quality tables out there. If you have a dedicated gaming room and you want to showcase your love for board games, you can find that too.  

I think our frequency is somewhere between passion and practicality. We're the Scorpio of board game tables; our still waters run deep, and if you don't want to let someone see your geek flag fly, you don't have to. If your world only has enough room for one table, we have the table that can take on sextuple duty as your midnight snacking, homework finishing, dinner party having, bill doing, get-that-snake-off-of-the-table-right-now-and-take-it-outside-ing table, and still be the centerpiece of the best game night you've had in years. we have put a great deal of effort into refining our prototypes, selecting our materials, and testing until we fail our constitution roll and our dice roll out of our hands to the floor.  

And, looking at the question again, I realize it's about the tables, not the table companies. In that case, it's probably the value we represent.
