What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY? 03 Jun 2018 10:10 #274560

That Terminator/Evil Dead fiasco was entertaining. After they raised over $700K without anything to show for it after a year, they got geeks to throw another $200K at them.

Is the nearly $1M they raised the biggest boardgame KS fraud yet ? Makes the Up Front boys seem like amateurs .

Backed the Advanced Labyrinth Lord RPG book. Its just the existing basic and advanced books combined. I already have both books so don't really need it but I'm getting it anyways. Don't judge me!

SoLong, My World

Just because it sounded kind of trippy. Plus it's only $30. I have no expectations.

Hold up- am I reading this right that they ran a SECOND campaign to raise equity to get the game made???????

And it was initially funded almost TWO YEARS ago?

Ha ha ha ha ha!

In the movie Matchstick Men they have a term for returning to the original victim and, posing as police, taking the rest of their money.

I was very close to backing my first KS ever: a Binding of Isaac card game. I'm a huge fan of TBoI and I love the aesthetic of the game(s). But after watching a short video of the basic gameplay, I realized that it's basically a variant of Munchkin. My excitement immediately turned to disappointment. So much for that.

I'm tempted by the Dungeon Degenerates second printing that is up on kickstarter.

In the last minutes, I pulled my funding from Solomon Kane.
I love reading Robert Howard, and this game's production values were top notch.
But ultimately, I just didn't see myself enjoying the co-op nature. Even if it had a unique spin on Solomon's fanaticism.

I'm not so certain I'll be so strong next week with Eric Lang / Daviau's Cthulhu thing...
