Build a 3D World for Dungeons & Dragons in Under a Minute with Cartographr

Cartographr

Two NYU graduate students, Joanna Liu and Rivelle Levine, were doing their thesis research on tabletop gaming and realized a gap between the current gaming tools and players’ dream tools. They set their minds to make a dream map-creation tool that is one step closer to the future vision of a holographic tabletop. The result is Cartographr, a social media platform that provides a more affordable and more immersive experience for tabletop role-playing gamers. Powered by Augmented Reality technology and shareable user-generated content, the app makes collaborative virtual world creation seamless by using intuitive drag and drop gestures, on the devices players already own. Users can manipulate complex digital 3D environments in real space with a single finger. The Kickstarter is live​.

Cartographr is designed for both in-person and remote gameplay. When players are in-person, the tool uses Cloud Anchor AR technology,  allowing multiple players to see the same virtual objects, at the same physical location, at the same time. Game-stores of the future can use this technology to create their own dungeon for players to visit and explore in-person. When players are remote, the experience is very similar to Roll20, but in 3D. Everyone can load the map on their own table and see changes in real-time. All players can also access features such as fog of war, dynamic lighting, distance tracking, and music integration.

Other cool game mechanics include: a single button to change from tabletop-sized miniature view to life-size in-person view, the ability to turn on and off dynamic grids for terrain, and the ability to transition from third to first person view.

Traditional miniature artists are also excited about this tool because of its promise of scanning physical 3D minis into the app and a creator market that gives individual artists the chance to sell their 3D work in a groundbreaking, new way. 

The application will be available on both iPhone and Android for free when launched, plus an additional web-browser view. The Kickstarter campaign will give backers the opportunity to score some exclusive digital packages at a lower cost and also some cool merchandise, such as a “mimic” T-shirt that comes to life with AR. 

Sirius Dice Launches Charity Dice Series. The Inaugural Set Focuses on Cancer Awareness

Cancer Awareness Dice set

Sirius Dice, distributed to local game stores through Alliance Game Distributors, is launching a new, limited edition Charity Dice Series today, March 3. The Series was created to build awareness for small charities and the incredible work they do. The inaugural dice set will focus on cancer awareness and will raise money for SURVIVEiT, an innovative non-profit organization that empowers those facing cancer to define their journey and face cancer on their own terms.

Founded in 2019 by Lax Chandra and Tina Trenkler, Sirius Dice aims to bring high quality dice and gaming accessories to tabletop gamers everywhere. Their focus is to support local games retailers by offering unique merchandising and display opportunities. The Charity Dice Program offers specially designed dice sets as a way to build awareness and raise money, with twenty percent of the proceeds going to partner charities. “When we learned that Sirius Dice was launching the Charity Dice Program, we wanted to do our part to help bring the gaming community together in support of the initiative,” said Charlie Tyson, President of Alliance Game Distributors, “We are proud to partner with Sirius Dice to help get the word out.”

The inaugural Cancer Awareness Dice Set was inspired by Trenkler’s experience battling Stage 3 colorectal cancer and her desire to help others going through their own cancer experiences.

This particular, limited-edition set features one of the most unique designs Sirius has ever released. While typical dice sets may feature a specific color theme, the Cancer Awareness Dice set was purposely designed multi-colored, united by the theme of awareness for all types of cancers. Each tube contains a unique, randomized assortment of dice colors, with each clear resin die containing ­floating cancer ribbons in one of 24 ribbon and ink colors, along with a ribbon symbol on the D20.

Proceeds from sales of this dice set will go to SURVIVEiT, a cancer patient advocate that recently launched the world’s first interactive Cancer Navigation Tool.

Gamers and those interested in supporting the cause can purchase the Charity Dice Series set at their local games store starting today. Charity Dice Series sets are denoted by a fuchsia cap on the packaging. Sirius Dice will be announcing three additional sets in the Charity Series later this year.

Game Theory Tables Launches The Origins on Kickstarter

Game Theory Tables might be a new company but it’s the same team that operates BBO Poker Tables, a prominent poker table brand in the US for the past 15 years. They’re now moving into other types of games with The Origins, a new entry in the game table space.

The Origins is currently being funded through Kickstarter and is available in the US, Canada, EU, and UK.

The table measures 72″ x 48″ x 32″ with a playing surface of 61″ x 37″ in a recessed space of 4″. It can set up to 8 and can be used as a game table and “dining table” with the additional top that needs to be added on for $499.

The table comes with a neoprene mat and the table itself features a choice of colors. The Origins table is made from solid ash wood.

The Kickstarter also features exclusive add-ons like a dice tower and tiered tray.

Each item is discounted with the table being 35% off and also features free shipping in the US.

With an established company behind it, this game table company might be the mass market breakthrough that’s been looking for someone to fill it. There have been some busts of projects by other companies in the space so here’s rolling the dice this one comes through.

The table is available in two waves, with the first expected to ship in August 2021.

You can back the table for $1,499 and the campaign ends on February 19 at 11pm. It’s already been funded so it’s a guarantee to make it that far.

TinkerTurf’s Next Full Color Wargaming Terrain Kickstarter Is Live!

In early 2018 TinkerHouse Games launched a Kickstarter creating affordable, great looking, easily assembled, full-color terrain for tabletop miniatures games and successfully delivered to all backers to critical acclaim. Now TinkerTurf is back with more full color easily assembled wargaming terrain with an aim to help you populate your table with beautiful structures so you can enjoy more time gaming and less time painting!

The best action scenes feature giant structures with extreme verticality. TinkerTurf is bringing that kind of blockbuster drama to your tabletop with the TinkerTurf Sci-Fi Release 2.1. The enormous SatComm Installation is worthy as the climactic set-piece location for any action franchise (RIP Arecibo). The MagLev Rail Starter creates an elevated battle space and adds a dynamic element to rail lines; it can be used standalone or in conjunction with the MagLev components from our previous release. Protect these strategic assets (or form an unforgiving arena enclosure) with the modular Perimeter Bundle, featuring a functional gate that opens and closes. The release is rounded out with new Tanker and Crate Containers, sized to fit onto the rail cars and work with our previous containers.

The TinkerTurf Sci-Fi Release 2.1 Kickstarter campaign runs from January 18th, 2021 until February 12th, 2021; and features backer levels from $20-$220 including a limited number of “Early Bird” special bundles.

Para Bellum Wargames Teams with Turbo Dork for a Special Release

Inferno X Turboshift

Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Mass Battles Miniature Wargame Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and the Skirmish system Conquest: First Blood, revealed a collaborative release with Metallic Paints specialist, Turbo Dork, coming in stores in February 2021. Called “Inferno X Turboshift”, the box contains an Inferno Automata model with 5 Turbo Dork colors.

In the unit’s lore, the steel and stone bodies of the Inferno Automata encase a raging furnace that burns the smoldering remains of a primordial beast. This demonic spirit is bound to the towering metal frame, infusing the Automaton with a cruel intellect and unfettered aggression. Steel and stone warp and buckle under the baleful influence of this infernal passenger, granting the Inferno Automata their demonic visages and cruel claws. The living, shifting hues of the Turbo Dork paints are ideal to display this concept, bringing to life this infernal model on the table.

Coming in February 2021 with an SRP of €$49, the “Inferno X Turboshift” box contains:

  • 1 x Inferno Automata plastic model
  • 5 selected Turbo Dork colors to best paint the model, namely:
    • Silver Fox
    • Shell Shocked
    • Cartridge Family
    • Ground Is Lava
    • Forrest Flux
