For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Are these a table?

No, these are toppers that sit on top of your existing table securely with a cross rail support system and soft rubberized 3M product to keep the topper from moving.

What table is right for my gaming?

It really depends on ones play style and gaming group. We have smaller table that are great for small and medium footprint games. The dimensions are listed on the campaign page. We find the “Watson” (38 x 60 play area) is great for 95 percent of the games out there. I have a huge game collection and play games that are sprawling like Mare Nostrum, Scythe, Kemet, Star Trek Ascendancy and Yokohama, and have more than enough space. the card rail feature plus cup holder/component trays and double trays provide extra space as well.

Do we offer a 48 x 72 Game Topper?

We realize there is a big demand from gamers who love big footprint games like TI3-4 and Warhammer. We have unleashed “The Mycroft” and amazing package called the Reichenbach Falls offerings.

Will my table work with the Topper? What is the ideal size?

The ideal size that will support every rail is 1 inch over the inside dimension of each Topper sizes we offer. For instance our Watson (which we feel is nearly the ideal size for most games) Toppers’s outside dimension is 45 x 67 inches and inside is 38 x 60. So a 39 x 61 is perfect, however, our toppers do not need to be fully supported because of our cross support under support system. The rail on the bottom is 2 1/4 Our Game Toppers over hang 9 inches on the 30 x 6 ft tables at conventions and perform very admirably in heavy convention use. Each of the video reviewers show this and it really is amazing how well the perform.

Standard vs Luxuriant

There have been a lot of questions about the functionality and differences. Hopefully this will help in clearing that up. In a nut shell, they function the same. They both have the card slot feature. the standard is just powder coat aluminum across the top instead of having the wood inlay. The Luxuriant mold allows us to have a inset to put high quality crafted wood into it. The reason we do not have pictures is that when we made our initial run of tables we produced the luxuriant version. The mold is ready to be made for the standard Toppers and is lined up to be produced before the end of the campaign.

Will the accessory rail fit either half of the Watson/Holmes toppers? Can I buy 2 and make two tables with each half?

Yes! You can certainly double your gaming experience if you pledge for a Watson, or Holmes and then get 2 accessory rails to go with each half. Now there are some amazing Rail Bundles with great prices, shipping included!

How do I add items?

It is very simple, all you need to do is add up the options you want and add that $ amount to your pledge. At the end of the campaign you will get billed from Kickstarter. This money will be a credit in the Backer Kit survey which will allow to select anything you pledged for plus allow you to upgrade or add on anything you may want.

If you just pledge the pledge level you selected, you will still be able to upgrade or add anything you want in the Backer Kit survey.

Can I select a Wood Finish for my Rails?

All Luxuriant Rails will be in the Waverly finish. The Standard will be black aluminium.

Unfortunately the Natural option was not unlocked so it won’t be available.

Can you ship internationally?

We are currently not offering Shipping outside of the United States and Canada with the exception of our Thematic game mats. We will continue to explore partners to bring this great product to an international audience, but currently it is not cost effective. As always there is hefty shipping expense to Alaska and Hawaii

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
