January 29, 2017: Crowdfunding Focus: Wyrmwood Game Master Screen (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-01-29)


Wyrmwood Gaming (https://wyrmwoodgaming.com/) has been a friend of SJ Games for a while now, and they're known for some pretty stellar wooden gaming equipment (like our convention*Zombie Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/) tray). Well, Eric gave me a quick hands-on demonstration of their newest Kickstarter accessory, and it's a doozy.*

I'm talking about their Magnetic Game Master (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wyrmwood/the-wyrmwood-magnetic-game-master-screen/description) screen. We're not talking about some small-time screen either, this bad boy is decked to the nines with tons of options, perfect for that game "master" moniker we like to throw around. You thought you were a master, but once you see this you may second guess yourself. Three individually connected screens are secured via magnets, with the ability to change their orientation. Not only that, but the trim on each screen is magnetized, to let you put all sorts of resources in, like monster stats, maps, or other props for your campaign. The main screen is even reversable, letting you reveal that terrifying beast, or show off a letter from a dignitary for players to read, or even give them insight on the dungeon layout.*

But Wyrmwood didn't stop at screens, two optional towers are unlockable stretch goals. The first, which is unlocked, is a dice tower. And even that has a quirk! You can angle the bottom slat to either aim behind the screen for your secret monster attacks, or towards the players for a dramatic lockpicking check. The other tower, which is currently locked, houses multiple drawers to store your accessories like dice, figures, or tokens. Not only that, but backers can piecemeal the perfect screen for them. Maybe you don't want the towers, or you just have to have it all; either way they have you covered. Even the wood is customizable!

You still have some time to get in on the Kickstarter, and I definitely recommend it. The options are endless, and it would surely improve your GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) campaign or any other roleplaying game.*
