Part of my Kickstarter Process

I’m currently engaged in my 10th Kickstarter campaign at the moment. It’s a project called Trinity of Awesome Returns! A lot of people have asked me about what all goes into my Kickstarters; like, how do you get from the initial idea (step A) all the way to fulfillment (step Z)? Well, as you can imagine from the space between the first and last letters [Read the article]

Kickstart The Warren

Instead of a regular Kickstarter round up, I’m going to focus in on one of the two kickstarters I’m backing this month. The first, which I won’t spend much time on, is the Reaper Miniature Bones III kickstarter. I’ve backed the two previous ones and this one is again looking to be a blockbuster. Check it out if you like minis and have time to [Read the article]

RPG Kickstarters: June Roundup

It seems like the number of RPG Kickstarters that interest me is declining. Not sure if that’s because there’s less RPG kickstarters generally or I’m becoming more picky. This month there’s only two, both ending shortly, be sure to check them out. Custom Pro Tabletop Audio Background Loops (Ends June 16, 2015) This Kickstarter is for professionally-produced audio backdrop loops for tabletop gaming. Each professionally designed and [Read the article]

There’s only one Kickstarter that I’m currently backing this month and I haven’t seen any others that have caught my eye enough to warrant an honourable mention.

Confessions of a Kickstarter Junkie: March's Roundup

Here are a few kick-starters that I’m backing and that you might want to check out: Uncharted Worlds: A Space Opera Roleplaying Game (ends March 20) A space opera tabletop rpg of exploration, combat, politics and commerce across the stars.

What can you Kickstart?

My problem with Kickstarter

I’ve been a gamer for quite a while.  I’ve played quite a few editions of quite a few games, and I’ve had the displeasure of watching the tabletop role-playing game industry flounder.  My hometown had four friendly local gaming stores, and they flourished for years.  They flourished right up until the industry took a dive, and all four of them had to close shop. This unfortunate turn [Read the article]
