I disagree with Gaddis, but I also wish him well.

Very interesting article. Congratulations to Mr. Gaddis.

Good luck. Maybe it will work this time.

Hey, enough with the negativity! Give me some positive vibes.
Did you actually read the article? He's deliberately created American jobs, given employee's an interest in the company, and seeks to spread an interest in historical gaming.
I'm struggling to find the downside.

Though to be honest the earlier news post was more gaming related.

Curious about the tabletopper product as I just don't see the usefulness nor understand the high cost. Is the product just a cut foam product or is it reinforced? Can it extend past the table edge and if so does it bend when someone leans on it or even upends the whole table. If it requires the same under table dimensions then what does adding this tables thickness do for ones gaming?

I am glad the guy has found an apparent niche and, maybe, can make some money, but I don't understand the purpose of putting a big piece of foam on top of your table.

I believe what is being discussed here is also known as a 'worker cooperative'. For more information, see link

The pricing doesn't seam logical either based on the individual piece prices. For the 4x6 it is $380 USD including shipping. If you buy 3x of the 2x4 add on sections and 2x 4' rails it adds up to $155. USD Ok the 4x6 might contain some extra material and some extra manufacturing time? But does that and the shipping add up to the $225 USD difference? I guess it is bulky hence the expensive cost for shipping?

The topper does extend your surface area of playing if you have small table such as a dining room table, however, I would not ‘lean' on it.

Also, it does protect the surface beneath from the rigors of miniature combat – a plus for those who only have one table that they can use for gaming and do not want to get in trouble with their spouse.
