I’ve always wanted to try something on the very popular crowdfunding website known as Kickstarter. It’s an amazing way of presenting a fresh idea to a community who are looking to support innovation. This is my first Kickstarter project, and something I’m very excited about!
It’s called überStax, an accessory for anyone playing table top games. Young, old, families, and gamers. After designing numerous prototypes over the course of a year, I created a simple universal piece that snaps together with other pieces, becoming a purposeful ‘rack’ used to place cards, tiles, miniatures, or other game pieces during any gameplay.
For people who love playing board or card games, überStax is a new twist on an old idea. For years, table-top card and token games have posed challenges for some players. Dexterity disabilities due to injury or illness can prevent some people from enjoying a simple game of cards, or dominoes. Children may struggle with the manual dexterity required to manipulate a hard of cards, and we’ve all experienced a Scrabble rack with too many tiles.
I’ve heard from experienced card players, board game players, parents, RPG gamers, and combined that feedback with my own tabletop play experience.
The result is an innovative way to save table space during those games that grow to cover a table. A flexible means to manage cards for those players with limited or diminished hand control; and an option for those who would like to have their hands free during a game for snacks and drinks.
