Kickstarter is hot right now, and I have successfully run 3 projects for board games, and have more coming.

I recorded 5 videos in a mini-series that is put together on a slideshow. Unfortunately, I cannot embed the slideshow here on BGG.

So, it is on my website:

The question I am answering is "How do I be successful on Kickstarter from scratch?" The basic answer is, that you don't. You first need to build an audience, and I explain how I would go about doing that from scratch again.

I have started answering questions that I get on the board game industry by quick videos that I record using my webcam built into my MacBook Air.

Enjoy, and feel free to provide additional questions for me to answer!
