Discush Kickstarter

  • Trav

    • It’s not that bad, jake is a pussy

    • In general, most kickstarters work, are abundantly funded, and deliver on time - just not games

    • Underwriting is a big problem - and it is no longer an Indie crowdfunding site

    • Kickstarter does assign a rep to each project while fundraising is going

      • Once money is raised, is up to creator

    • Board games have raised 6x’s more money than gaming kickstarters

      • Because they are more apt to deliver

    • Gambitious


  • Jake - Jake turns into ANGRY JOE
