The Last Gameboard closes seed financing round with $4 million

The Last Gameboard has raised $4.8 million to create the world’s first tabletop gaming platform of its kind. Its seed financing round was led by TheVentureCity and raised $4 million. SOSV, Riot Games, Conscience VC, Corner3 VC, and more also participated.

Since launching in January of 2019, The Last Gameboard has been dedicated to creating a purpose-built, portable product for tabletop and role-playing game fans. The 16-inch by 16-inch design takes game night into a new dimension with 3D touch technology. It will pair with a companion app for iOS, Android, and browsers, and will feature interaction with physical objects, such as game pieces, cards, and meeples.

Launching later this year, Gameboard offers individual game ownership and unlimited access subscriptions. The Last Gameboard continues to partner with digital and tabletop game developers, including Asmodee Digital, Dire Wolf Digital, Nomad Games, Steve Jackson Games, and more.
