TinkerTurf Interview: Taking wargaming to a new level

Learn more about the new sets that will be adding life to your game nights.


Tabletop gaming has stood the test of time as one of the most popular forms of group entertainment. Heavily relying on creativity and personality, tabletop creates a sense of communion. As the genre evolves, more and more advancements are made in order to make the game sessions feel more authentic. This is where TinkerTurf comes in, originating on Kickstarter, this company develops “full color, pre-cut, easily assembled wargaming terrain.” We interviewed Lane Daughtry, co-founder of TinkerHouse games about the new product line.

In the interview above, our beloved Greg Burke speaks with Daughtry about TinkerTurf. TinkerHouse wants their terrain to be as convenient for consumers as possible. In the video, Daughtry shows a fully assembled container from one of their sets, which he says took about 30 minutes to put together. In addition, he makes note of the fact that the structures are light enough to transport comfortably, but heavy enough that they won’t bounce around a table. Wargaming can be a long and complex endeavor, so it’s vital that parts of a set aren’t falling over or moving around over the course of a game.

From a visual standpoint, TinkerTurf offers a more pleasing aesthetic than old school setups may have had. Instead of having to take additional hours tediously painting each individual part, TinkerTurf already boasts a variety of colors and patterns.
