I'm going to make a GeekList!! Why? Several reasons.

1) I want to figure out how to make GeekLists

2) I have gotten into several Kickstarter campaigns and wanted some way to track them all. A GeekList seems like it might work for me.

3) I have several friends who know I've been playing Kickstarter roulette and want to follow my experiences so they can either make fun of me for getting taken or join in on the fun. A GeekList will give them a way to watch. It might also grow a few more BGG members.

4) Finally, I've seen lots of discussion on BGG about successes and horrors of Kickstarter and I figured I'd share the experiences of a relative newbie to the gaming hobby and a guy who converted from Kickstarter skeptic to supporter.

I guess the main concerns I had when first looking at Kickstarter were,

a) Would I get what I paid for?
b) How long would it take to get?
c) What quality am I getting?

Well, I finally have some answers.

My KS stats (as of Feb 11, 2014)

# of projects backed: 52

% backed that:
- Funded: 56% 29
- Failed: 19% 10
- Still Active: 25% 13

% funded that have delivered:
- TOTAL: 24% 7
- Early: 29% 2
- On Time: 14% 1
- Late: 57% 4

% funded but undelivered:
- TOTAL: 76% 22
- On Schedule: 91% 20
- Late 9% 2

Average time from FUNDING to DELIVERY (days): 127
Fastest Project (days/title): 32 * * TURBO RALLY Card Racing * *
Slowest Project (days/title): 106 EVOLUTION Bicycle® Playing Cards Deck
Slowest Non-Game: 295 Tori Roze and The Hot Mess get MESSY on their next album!

Quality of delivered product (0-5 Stars):
5 stars: 71% 5
4 stars: 14% 1
3 stars: 14% 1
2 stars: 0% 0
1 stars: 0% 0
0 stars: 0% 0

% I would back again (that have funded/delivered):
- Yes: 57% 4
- Maybe: 43% 3
- No: 0% 0

% I would back again (that didn't fund):
- Yes: 70% 7
- Maybe: 10% 1
- No: 20% 2


KickStarter - My Friend or Foe?: FRIEND

Obviously I'll keep updating as required.

If you can think of any other stats I'm missing, let me know.




Random data just because the spreadsheet lets me play. Numbers are fun –

# of projects backed: 52
# of projects funded: 29
Avg. length of campaigns (days): 35

Combined Campaign Stats (Total = Funded and Non-Funded):
# of backers: 42,997
$ goal: $1,140,568
$ raised: $1,763,860
% of goal raised: 155%

Combined Campaign Stats (Funded Only):
# of backers: 41,479
$ goal: $434,690
$ raised: $1,698,518
% of goal raised: 391%

Total spent by me: Just enough and too much.

For my investments I've received:
(approx. – some of these things get confusing with all the stretches and bonuses)
(I will update these as the games are delivered so it will become accurate in time)

Savings over MSRP: $312
Early Bird savings: $89

My first three Kickstarters were not gaming related. They were in the music arena but I'm including them here since they count in the overall experience and stats of KS.

I avoided KS like the plague. Was sure it was a scam of some kind. Joined to help the East Bay Soul project (#1 below) because I liked the guy and knew of his previous work.

Greg Adams and East Bay Soul the TOUR, new VIDEO and DVD
by Greg Adams

East Bay Soul DVD

Funding period: Aug 10, 2012 - Sep 14, 2012 (35 days)
Funded?: NO - Unsuccessful
Would I back them again?: YES


Didn't go back to KS after those three projects. I got good music out of them but the wait times were longer than I expected. I didn't even check out the what else was going on elsewhere on KS so as far as I knew it was a music support thing. Anyway, I thought I was done with KS forever.

Then a friend had a game night and started talking about his soon to come KS campaign. I told him I'd been there for music projects but didn't know it was also for gaming. He said to do a search and check them out. That night we played Lost Legends, which had just arrived from KS that day. I was hooked.

THE AGENTS - A Double-edged Cards Game
by Saar Shai

The Agents

Funding period: Jul 9, 2013 - Aug 25, 2013 (47 days)
Funded?: YES
Reward Survey sent: Aug 30, 2013
Estimated delivery date: Nov 2013
Actual delivery date: Dec 4, 2013
DELIVERED!! - LATE (barely)
Time to deliver (days): 101
Communication: Awesome, during and after campaign. Within a few hours of backing the creator wrote and thanked me. The only one to do that.
Quality of final product: Quality of all is great. Shipping damage due to poor shipping plan.
Would I back them again?: YES

This campaign should be a model to others.

Plastic cards are really nice. Some are complaining about the burrs on edges but they don't bother me. If they do I'll fix them.
Delivery was a hair late but not enough to complain about (although it will count as Late in the stats above).
Shipping damage seems to be a problem. My fancy box is torn. Throwing a cardboard box into a paper-only envelope for shipment to the other side of the planet seems like a bad idea. They are fixing that for remaining shipments.

Fancy box replaced. Rec'd 12/27/13.

Reward Survey sent: Oct 2, 2013
Estimated delivery date: Dec 2013

DELIVERED - ON TIME!!
Time to deliver (days): 106
SLOWEST GAME-RELATED DELIVERY SO FAR!
Communication: Good during campaign, OK after.
Quality of final product: Great!
Would I back them again?: MAYBE

I jumped into this campaign my first day looking at game stuff on KS. When I saw this I was blown away since it didn't look like any deck I knew of. I didn't know that everyone and his brother makes custom fancy decks of cards. Now that I know its not a rare thing I would pass. Still a sweet looking deck though. Again, nothing against the creator, product, or campaign. Its just not what I need. I would back them for something I did need.

Rec'd deck today. Deck is beautiful but like others have experienced, the aluminum Ace has a dent in it. It was just thrown in loosely with the deck box so it looks like the card got off center with the box and got a little weight on it so it bent slightly over the box corner. Hopefully will flatten out.

'Maybe' is an average. I'd say YES as far as game and quality and NO on communication and customer service.

No, it wasn't THAT late but still, don't promise what you can't deliver.

This campaign was very well done... up until the making the game and delivering it part.

Its already late and after much backer ignoring, they are finally now saying that it could be many months. Every question that comes up they won't answer, instead they defer to Game Salute who is supposed to be making the game. Game Salute says they are having problems getting it together with the printer (or some related excuse). Who is the printer? Game Salute. Looks like the left hand don't know what the right hand is doing. Whatever hand is doing or failing I wish they would just get it done.

Deep Space: A Sci-Fi Strategy Game for 2-4 Players

Funding period: Aug 25, 2013 - Oct 4, 2013 (40 days)
Funded?: NO - Unsuccessful
Reward Survey sent: N/A
Estimated delivery date: Jan 2014

Communication: Terrible. Less than very little.
Quality of final product: N/A
Would I back them again?: NO

This campaign should be a model to others who want to fail. Very few updates. No responses to backer questions. No KS presence. No BGG presence.

I'd love to try the game but wouldn't back again because I have little faith they would follow through after taking my money. In the end, I'm very happy it failed so I didn't lose money.

Last word was that some cards were misprinted so they are being reprinted which will delay game delivery until Jan 2014.

They game came on Jan 15, 2014. Overall quality was good. Some bits were cut a little off-center and I was missing some pieces. Mark quickly mailed a replacement set with no questions asked.

My only big complaint on the quality is the box. Its a normal paperboard box with paper art/graphics glued to it. The paper is bubbling and I fear in time the paper will come off and it will be a plain old paperboard box. Mark did give me some tips to fix which I will try.

Wattsalpoag went out of their way to make this happen.


The stretch goals are delayed so we had the choice to get the game without stretch now or with stretch later. I chose later. However, even if I went with now the game would not have arrived by estimated delivery date.

They did something cool for the 100 backers. They did a print on demand First Edition of the game, all KS exclusives, and stretches. Only backers can place an order. Ordered mine via The Game Crafter on 12/4/13. Received the game from The Game Crafter on 12/23/13. It really is a beauty. High quality.

Backed it knowing it would not make funding. Pretty high goal. But I loved Colecovision (still have 2 of them and many games) and $10 for the app was worth it. Hope they try again.

The campaign that refuses to end. Queue up Limahl! (+1 if you get that reference)

This started with simple 12-sided dice and now there are 800 different things to choose from or add-on, and it continues to grow. Ok, 800 is an exaggeration...I think...I quit paying attention. Go look at the table of stuff though.

All the new stuff is COOL, and I DO plan on buying some, but I wish they would just finalize on a list of products and move on to collecting money and making the dang things. Come back with another campaign if you want to sell more items.
