The Not-Monday Quick Update
7 days ago – Sun, Feb 21, 2021 at 12:09:41 AM

Good folks!

We hope to be finished with production as soon as late next week. We'll probably send out pics of piled product for you to peruse; and update you if we were overly optimistic (see, that's to satisfy any lurking project imps - they're like little reputation-seeking missiles when they hear confidence). 

Fulfillment will begin immediately thereafter. We will definitely let you know when the mats are on their way. Tracking numbers where available (which will be the great majority of you) will be provided. 

That's it for now! Questions? You know where to find us. Shy? Use

Update At Elven

Important Update (and it's still Monday Somewhere!)
about 1 month ago – Tue, Jan 26, 2021 at 05:11:22 AM

Thank you all so much for your eager responses. We know it took a while to get the pledge manager working right - so we do feel a little embarrassed to nudge the few remaining backers that haven't responded (and yes - there's still plenty of time, we're just trying to keep things rolling so we have as quick a fulfillment as possible for everyone). 

  • 79% of you have completed the survey as of this update. Thank you, you're awesome. The only thing we ask of you is: if you know a backer friend who has not responded yet, consider asking them to do so? Gently? We understand this isn't The Most Important Thing.  
  • The survey remains open until 11:59 2/7/20121
  • On 2/1/2021 we will make the first of three attempts to reach any backer who has not responded (if any)
  • If, after three attempts  backers have not responded and allow the pledge manager to close without making their selections - will we make "best guess" selections for them equal to the aggregate number of mats in their individual pledges. (I did mention before that we can't read minds, right?)
  • If, within 6 months after the pledge manager closes, those backers contact us - we will gladly allow them to pay for their shipping and choose from the remaining playmats available
  • After 6 months, any unfulfilled pledges will reluctantly be considered donations. We will use social media channels and any contact information we have to attempt to avoid this. 

OK, "why?" - right? 

Our goal is to get each one of you the mats you want, as quickly as we can get them to you. To do that, we need 100% response as quickly as we can get it. If we can't get 100%, we have to set a deadline - and go with what we have when it arrives. If you haven't have time to respond yet - we understand. There's time left. Just...please get those selections and payments in as soon as you can?

Comments and thoughts are welcome.

Thank you all!

The Survey is Open!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Jan 23, 2021 at 10:35:34 PM


Thank you so much for your patience. 

After jumping through all the necessary (and some unnecessary) hoops, sacrificing the right kind and flavor of tofu to the neoprene gods - the survey is finally open!

If you missed the email, you can go the survey here: Recover your Backerkit Survey

You will see the mat art as you make selections (having all the art visible was one of the "problems" we were required to address, so...not as nice as the original design if you saw that - but it works. You can always open the project itself in another tab to view the art, too.

If you know anyone that missed the Kickstarter - the late Order page is HERE.

Thanks again - and let us know if you have any issues or requests!

Pre-Monday Update! Survey and Pledge Manager Fulfillment Guide
about 1 month ago – Sat, Jan 16, 2021 at 02:28:28 AM

Dear Backers,

Thank you for being a part of this Campaign. The following guide explains how to fulfill your pledge when you receive the survey (submitted to BACKERKIT, and expected to go live anytime between now and early next week). 

Once available, please complete the survey as soon as possible - we cannot begin fulfillment until EVERYONE has responded.

1. Confirm your pledge level and answer the two questions.

2. Choose your Playmats under the Add-Ons section. YOU MUST CHOOSE YOUR PLAYMAT(S) from the ADD-Ons section (we're not mind readers...officially). 

  • You can choose ANY number of playmats
  • You can select more mats than you originally pledged for at the cost of $23 USD per additional extra mat.
  • You can select multiples of the same playmat.

NOTE: You will see a credit associated with your original pledge amount. Use this credit to choose the Playmats that you want to receive. (The credit amount is equal to the number of mats in your original pledge.)

3. Complete your selections - The price of shipping will be calculated automatically based on your selections and your location.

4. Provide your complete shipping address in the area provided.

5. Make your payment for the required shipping, and any additional playmats chosen, if applicable.

6.  When you have completed your Survey and the Pledge Manager, please give us a like on that Internet thing!


If you are local to south-central or southeastern Pennsylvania, we can arrange pick-up or meet you halfway with your playmats if you are within about 25 miles of zip codes 19468 or 17368

Thank You! 

If you have questions or problems, contact us at or

Tom & Mike

Late Pledges can be made in the  Pledge Manager. The cost of the Playmats will be 25$ USD each, plus shipping.

Please note: The pledge manager will be closing at the end of January, at Midnight EST on the 31st.

Barely Still Monday Update
about 2 months ago – Mon, Jan 11, 2021 at 10:14:17 PM

Hey Everyone!

We are working on the Backer survey so that you can select your mats. It does not look like it'll be (what's left of) today - but it will be very, very soon.

It is critical that once the survey goes out, everyone answer as soon as possible. 

Unlike projects offering a single  product, we are manufacturing the specific playmats needed to satisfy Backer selections. What this means is, any slow or absent responses slow the whole process down (because we are obligated to attempt to obtain the needed information on an individual basis). 

We know you all are as eager to make your selections as we are to deliver them, so hopefully it's no issue at all and we can proceed at maximum speed once the funds are released by Kickstarter.

We're almost ready to go, and we're sure you are too. We will keep you up to date as production proceeds; and get those gorgeously terrifying mats in your hands as soon as possible.

Thank you again,

Mike & Tom of Red Duke Games
