Nice wooden games, handy and design

Adding a game in your suitcase, to travel around the world or to visit grandma, is a good idea to spend your time on the road or to have fun with your family !

You need more space ?
You're afraid of losing pieces ?
You hate to play on a miniature, ugly, fragile, unplayable plastic version ?

So do I !

Then I decided to design ergonomic and aesthetic games.

Compact, each game is its own box.
Foldable, like a book, its slips into a bag or lines up in the bookcase.
Elegant, with its classy line, and futuristic look.

A original collection for a classic idea, wooden made !

Here are the models :

- The Chess (box model)
240x126x18mm closed / 240x240x15mm open

- The Chess (sliding model)
240x126x24mm closed / 240x240x18mm open

For both versions :

- The Backgammon
280x198x21mm closed / 280x380x20mm open

- The Dominoes Set
188x40x20mm stacked / 40x20x6mm each domino

- The Dices of my invention
15x15x15mm each dice

The dice-holder included in the set (here in 6 holes model).

Games "made in Normandy"

I build each game in my workshop in Normandy, at Les Ateliers Intermédiaires.
The wood (MDF) is laser-cuted, at the FabLab of Caen.

Wofür ist das eingesammelte Geld?

A boost to start off!

Organizing a crowdfunding campaign will help me to finance the production of the first set.

1200 euros, a nice sum to launch a project !
But I aim even further, because i wish to make a living of my activity.
For that, I need to purchase my own machine, an option only possible with a large number of orders !

Here are the steps of funding :

- 1200 euros - The minimum
Building 30 games for Christmas

- 2400 euros - Not bad !
New designs

- 4800 euros - Cool !
Deluxe version in solid wood

- 7200 euros - So good !
Way more designs

- 9600 euros - Wahou !
Enough to buy a laser-cutter !

- 12000 euros - SO CLASSY !
And a milling machine too !!

Reaching this level will give me the best chance to continue my work, with the right equipment !

Über den Projektträger

Who is Thomas Planete ?

An playful artist ?
A curious handyman ?
A new technologies explorer ?
A tumblr cyclist ?

Actually, everything together !

28 years, former graphic designer, Im passionate about a lot of things.
Drawing maps, directing movies, traveling by bicycle, tinkering a lot... especially wood !

In 2014, curious, I discover at the FabLab (Fabrication Laboratory) of Caen, an incredible machine : the laser-cutter.

Love at first sight. <3

With it, I can cut almost everything I draw !
So I started to design games that I could play on a trip.

Many prototypes later, the models are finally good.
Already some orders, already new ideas !
