AdapTableTop “ATT”, a lifted modular system for boardgames, wargames and RPGs.
Like you, who are reading these lines, we too are fanatics of board games and role-playing games, and we know how difficult it is, sometimes, adapting the space available and play comfortably. We did some searches, and we found an article on a website that suggested some solutions to improve the gaming experience with professional tables, in this way, we came across an amateur project that inspired us to develop AdapTableTop “ATT”. We intended to make a device that had the same concept but could be more versatile.
Since that, several products have been released on the market that allows users to improve the gaming experience, from professional wooden tables to additional accessories, and they are all good solutions. With our project, we wanted to focus on the features that we believe are fundamental to our experience as players and developers to offer a product that can help many other players to have fewer limitations due to their playable space. These are the key points on which we have worked: more surface, customizable, stable, easy to use, and transport.
We faced many problems during the development of the project. We managed to fix them and we are happy to have inserted all the features that we consider essential and unique to ensure everyone can enjoy their boardgames and RPGs in the best possible way and, above all, in any circumstance.
The honeycomb under the “ATT” modules allows the legs and stabilizers to interlock in any position. So we asked ourselves: why not make the technical data of the joints “open source” so that anyone can personalize his AdapTableTop with any 3D printer? And so we did! Together with any bundle, we will send to you as a Kickstarter exclusive, a file with the technical data of the honeycomb system. Gamestart will also unlock during the campaign a series of “ready to print” accessories. The “.stl” file (compatible with any 3D printer software) will be downloadable during the post-campaign phase.
The first feature we focused on is the ease of assembling and disassembling “ATT”, without using metal parts or screws to ensure the safety of younger children and giving the product the best flexibility of use without having to spend too much time in the setup.
You no longer have to adapt to the space available to play. Now you can create a new surface and choose to mount each leg and each “ATT” module wherever you prefer, according to your needs. You can also decide to split it or to use only one of the six available modules to make it suitable for even the smallest tables. Each module is 30 x 30cm (11,8 x 11,8 inch).
With “ATT” you can change the legs height during the assembly phase: you can choose between 8 and 12 cm (3,1 and 4,7 inch). If we had not entered this feature, Some of the players would have had visual problems and then be forced to get up often to understand what to do during the game session. We don’t want your favorite game to be stressful too. You can use the different heights of “ATT” to create environments with different levels in a wargame or RPG scenario.
Reliable, stable and monolithic: 3 features to prevent the gaming experience from being ruined by an accidental gesture. The interlocking method we have chosen consists in the use of legs equipped with four pins each; they block the planks and ensure the stability of the structure. The legs can be inserted anywhere thanks to the lower part of the table made up of a continuous beehive grid. The shape difference between table hexagonal hollow area and the four-round pins of each leg allows stability and rapidity in assembly. It is undoubtedly better to invest more time in playing than to waste time assembling a device, risking to make this phase boring.
The thickness of the top ABS plastic allows the table to maintain up to 9kg of material on it and to guarantee this weight, our crash test reached 12kg.
You can play any game or wargame with metal scenery, but we do not recommend playing Twister!
Stability, in any situation: is the essential point. It was not enough for us that, during use, it was monolithic but we wanted it to be like this even on the move, with your games or puzzles on it and with the certainty of not having any problem. How many of you happened to have to move while you were playing or doing a puzzle? You can do it without any problem and no risk. Thanks to the “DYNAMIC STABILITY ADAPTERS” to be inserted under the modules, any accidental release is prevented, bringing “ATT” to a higher standard of stability.
“ATT” is a multi-surface solution that can also be used outside the playful context, thanks to its complete modularity. Do you, therefore, want a color matching your decor? It will be possible to choose from more than one color and we managed to insert six! Glossy Silver is the primary color. Gold, red, blue, black, and green are the five exclusive Kickstarter colors with a matt finish.
It will be available with a rigid and compact case to facilitate its transport when you go to use it outside your home.
