I'm a board gamer who daydreams constantly of accessory ideas that might add a little fun and function to gaming. I created this shop as a way to make these ideas a reality and hopefully contribute to our hobby!

BACKGROUND
I have always loved board games, and frequently played the usual fare with family and friends in my childhood years, but as I got older it dropped off. Around 2009 I was searching for a hobby I could really get into, and revisited board games. Initially I thought I'd find the same games I had when I was young, but then I discovered the true world of board gaming (many thanks to boardgamegeek.com and Tom Vasel for that!). I never knew just how many games were out there beyond the simple roll-and-move and party varieties. I quickly got sucked in, building out my game collection, joining gamer groups and making gamer friends. And, playing a lot of games!

As I became more and more versed with the gaming experience I noticed there was room to make it better with some accessories. I started to dream about some different designs and sought out a way to bring them to life. I discovered the art of laser cutting and learned how to make vector files to capture my ideas. I would send my files to laser cutter vendors who would produce my cuts and mail them to me, at a price. I finished some early ideas, made some small batches and gave them to my gamer friends. The feedback was good so I kept thinking of new ideas and repeating the cycle. At some point it became cost prohibitive to continue paying a vendor to cut my designs, so I started looking for another solution.

By chance I found a fellow gamer on boardgamegeek.com who had recently purchased a laser cutter and was making his own accessories for sale. I reached out and he kindly taught me a great deal about how the machines work, how to create vector files, and more. I became really entranced with the process and started to research the purchase of my own laser cutting machine.

Fast forward to today, I own that machine and am working on bringing my ideas to you. My goal is to offer items that add to your gaming enjoyment either through providing solutions to some frustrating situations or giving your favorite games that extra polish. I am committed to your satisfaction and to providing you with a consistent, quality product. It's the least I can do for your kind interest and business!

Thank you for checking out my work. And remember, if you're playing... you're already winning!

    Hi there! I'm a board game enthusiast - love 'em! But over the years I've run into several areas of gaming that I thought could be a little better, so I started designing accessories. And now I'm here to offer them to you!
