We are a few months away from launching our first Kickstarter, like REALLY. The game is good, people like it, we have identified a market, and contacted manufacturers. But money… (You know, that thing you use to buy games, gas, and groceries (AKA the three G’s of life)) well, we need it.
We need to go to more events, conventions, and hold demos. We need to buy prototypes, business cards, and other promotional material. We are doing all we can, but we are just five minimum wage earning twenty-somethings and “doing all we can” is about $250 a month.
The way we look at it, we have two options: 1) Slow Down, or 2) ask for help.
So, can you help?
And, yeah, of course there will be kickbacks! If you subscribe our Game Master subscription level for $10 or more a month, you will get more frequent updates, vote on card and piece design, and be in actual communication with us via Discord. You may also get some Print n’ Plays chucked your way as we work through our designs. Naturally, there is also the Gamer subscription for as little as $1 a month!
