Kekonomicon BlizZone And Blitz&Roll (Fantasy Football) Kickstarter 2

The BlitzZone and the Blitz&Roll are completely different concepts for high quality portable fantasy Football gaming fields. They offer a simple, compact and ready to play portable solution to your gaming needs upon opening. At the same time they offer an easy and safe alternative to transporting all that you require to play a perfect Fantasy Football match; be it either the field, the capacity for two complete teams of miniatures, the dugouts, markers and counters, etc.

We also know that many of us fans dream of setting up and customizing our gaming field; but to start from scratch is quite a cumbersome challenge.

To this purpose, the BlitzZone and Blitz&Roll have both been designed to serve as a starting base for your dreamed projects. With each one of them your technical issues are solved; a completely functional and finished piece of work with a design that meets all requirements; from that point on you may paint, transform, model, engrave, … simply put customize it in order to create your personalized gaming field. Yet, we still offer a number of improvements and features throughout the campaign in order for you to be able to help you customize your BlitzZone or Blitz&Roll, with many options to choose from.

Your perfect match. Anywhere. Anytime.

The new BlitzZone has been adjusted to the new Fantasy Football gaming field size and is at the same time customized so that it occupies the least surface necessary in order for you to take your gaming experience anywhere you like! Closed up it is a compact and comfortable carrying case. Its leatherette lined handle provides a comfortable hand held carrying experience and, additionally, a very simple strap system allows for it to be set as a hand free transportable alternative.

Kekonomicon BlizZone And Blitz&Roll (Fantasy Football) Kickstarter 5

The design has been thought for it to provide an amazing gaming field which is compact and diaphanous, with the handle and straps remaining properly kept away. Beneath the field you find two spacious side trays that open up on the side, holding the dugouts for each team, turn and reroll markers, and at the backside of these side trays you have large foam trays for carrying your dice, counters and miniatures, properly stored and very well protected.

Kekonomicon BlizZone And Blitz&Roll (Fantasy Football) Kickstarter 6

You can open up your BlitzZone just about on any surface, no matter how small. Just a minimum surface requirement at least 30 cm wide is necessary, and by means of the straps the BlitzZone will account for a stable base, with the rest of the structures remaining safely secure even if they are in mid air!

Kekonomicon BlizZone And Blitz&Roll (Fantasy Football) Kickstarter 7

The BlitzZone consists of:

  • A digitally printed textile gaming field with the officialy sanctioned size (to choose from all the field designs unlocked and between the classic 29mm grid or the current 34mm grid).

  • Main structure case, manufactured in Medium Density fibreboard material, light and robust, with stainless steel ironworks. It contains each team’s scoreboard, throw in templates, FAME counters and a spinning weather token.

Scenography

The BlitzZone is designed as a portable gaming field, which accounts for all the necessary features to play games or tournies in a case that offers minimum volume and weight possible, easy to store.

Should you account for your own gaming spot, where transporting your materials is not a priority (such as your gaming club or your own household), we’ve also considered designing a series of scegraphy pieces to complement your BlitzZone. With them you can set up a complete Fantasy Football, creating an inmersive gaming experience and funtional at the same time, allowing to easily and cofortably play without any cumbersome obstacles.

We’ve designed an adapter piece that will allow you to use these additional features with the Blitz&Roll as well, so you don’t have to miss out on anything and take yourFantasy football experience to another level.

This adapter can even help you combine the scenography with almost any other gaming field you may already have in your collection.

You can choose your scenography set from all those which have been unlocked from the add-on section during the campaign. The first one which will be available from the begining of the campaign is “The Maiden’s Clearing”, but as the campaign progresses, new set designs may be unlocked.

Pledge Levels

If you want more than one of a particular model, just multiply the pledge by the desired number and set the total as your pledge amount. Please note that the Early Bird version is limited to one-per-backer.

Our Team

Kekonomicon is a creative, dedicated and enthusiastic young team composed by two architects –Manuel Ruíz Moreno and José Carlos Montes Ríos– driven by their twofold passion for games and design. But a dream like this needs counsel and support. We are lucky for being able to count on many people which have helped us on our project abd to whom we would like to present our deepest gratitude:

ªRU-MOR, illustrator, sculptress, miniaturist, graphic designer and much more! She’s been our mentor and a big supporter since the very first steps of our amazing adventure. She’s not just the one behind part of the artwork, she also suggested a few cool ideas which have been implemented in the final design.

Fernando Tejero, Laboratory Technician at the Industrial Design Department, EPS prototype workshop. We’ve had countless concepts and ideas to test. Without his support, the prototype development would have been plainly impossible. Whenever we visit him, we learn something new.

Clint García Alibrandi, Biologist and a great fan of Fantasy football, as well as a great friend. He has offered us invaluable help with his personal experience and advice, as well as the heavy work of text editing and translation.

Manuel Pariente from Escenorama. A outstanding professional within the sector of gaming scenery and head of a quality company with many years of experience in the design and manufacturing of wargaming elements. No other company would be better for the production of the tokens and miniatures for our campaign.

Daniel López from Akaro Dice. An incredibly talented professional, very passionate of his work; and a reference when it comes to manufacturing customised dice sets. We are proud to count with his collaboration for manufacturing our gaming dice, offering a great quality product.

Antonio Felipe, Susana, Patricia and Fernando. Many friends have supported and encouraged us, but we would like to especially mention these great ones. Always there when you need them, raising spirits.

Our families, who have been always supportive no matter how much time we spent working on such an exciting project.

And of course, a big thank YOU to you all backers for your support and for spreading the word. With your help you will not just make this a reality, but will also help us in more projects to come!!!

Risks and challenges

Even though we have carefully planed every detail to avoid delays, we can never be 100% sure that unforeseen events may occur during the whole process. That being said, we are confident in our estimations as we ourselves are manufacturers and have face-to-face contact with almost all of our providers. The estimated delivery time will begin in April 2019 and will be based on backer order.

  • Geht irgendwie am Ziel vorbei. Wenn ich ein einfach zu transportierendes Spielfeld haben möchte dann nehme ich eine robuste Spielmatte und kein Klappschrank aus Holz oder Pappe. Als Grundlage für ein gestaltetes Spielfeld finde ich das allerdings nicht verkehrt. Steinstruktur mit Sand und Farbe auf das Holz und man hat einen schönen Blood Bowl Dungeon.

  • Ist glaube ich der dritte oder vierte Versuch … beobachte die Jungs schon länger , tolle Ideen dabei , aber scheinbar nicht für die breite Masse interessant genug …. ich bin gespannt , ob diesmal die Kampagne finanziert wird
