This looks like a great idea for managing the table for certain games (Carassonne being the key one, obviously). Having had the table disturbed during a game can be immensely frustrating for tile-based games like this, and these grids are designed to prevent exactly that. Unlike another solution I’ve seen (the rubber mesh ‘toolbox liners’ — which work remarkably well for keeping the tiles stable in play) these can actually be picked up and moved elsewhere if needed.
Grids are 4×4
Compatible games include:
- Tile chess
- Ark of the Covenant
- Batt’l Kha’os
The project closes Nov 4 and is currently 20% funded (7,047/34,600).
I’m likely to add another $88 to that: 25-pack, rubber feet, velvet pouch — we use a lot of tiles playing Carassonne. Protip: Breaking out the entire Big Box means you’ll be there for three or four hours.
Though the 36-pack has appeal too. How many Carassonne tiles do we have? I should probably count them first.
