About our terrain

So, what makes our terrain so unique?

Well, magnets! Not on the sides, but inside the bottom of each tile. This way you can use a magnetic whiteboard or thin metal sheet as a base to keep everything together. Aside from that, each 25mm (1") square is its own tile - our terrain is modular to the max.

Stacking height blocks with stair tiles becomes an absolute breeze because they have magnets on top as well, and you can even use the height blocks with metal sheets to easily raise an entire room.

Want to exchange a wall tile for a demolished wall tile? Just pick it up vertically and place the replacement, no clips are used to there's no hassle. The magnets are strong enough to keep the tiles in place, yet the tiles are easy to pick up. 

While you can use a regular magnetic whiteboard or even a metal sheet from the local DIY-store, we can provide metal plates engraved with a 25mm grid and rounded corners. Small enough to be easily stored, yet big enough to provide up to 64 squares, they add to the modular aspect of our terrain. Just build to next room behind your DM-screen and add it to the dungeon as your players explore!

On top of that, our tiles are printed in black PLA+ and with a slightly rough texture, making them absolutely perfect for a simple dry-brush. No primer needed!

A bit about myself.

My name is Luuk, I've lived in the Netherlands my entire life and have always been a big fan of gaming - I even have a Bachelor's degree in Gametechnology! Over the last 10 years, this has shifted more and more from video games to tabletop (although I'm still putting in lots of hours into digital fantasy worlds).

Somewhere in 2016 I started playing D&D with my (now) wife and some friends of ours, and once I acquired the hobby of 3D-printing the two activities were quickly combined. At first, I just used 3D models from the internet, but frustrations with existing systems resulted in me developing my own system/models. My D&D group were so excited about my terrain that I decided to put everything on Etsy and ... it went well, so well that two-three months later I quit my day job in IT and started Lefty Games! 

As you may see in the picture below, I didn't name my company Lefty Games because I'm left-handed, but rather because I don't have one. It started as a joke, but soon it became a symbol of creativity for me - I've had this since I was born, and always needed to find creative ways to do things you'd normally need more than five fingers for. It's even in my logo!

It's me!
