I've been spending or wasting money whoever you talk to on kickstarter for about a couple of years now. I have nice little collection going. I have not played most of them, but this is a good way to keep up with the collection besides pencil and paper.

I am going to try to include:
Pledge:
KS ended:

On time?:

Communication:

Update: I couldn't help myself and backed Architects of the West Kingdom. I didn't want to miss out on the future trilogy like I did with the Viking theme. I went for Warfighter WWII Pacific and stuck to just the base set because I haven't played the other games in the series (WWII 1st Wave & Modern Warfare). The series comes with a lot of expansion about 15 at $15 each. I didn't jump in yet, but I will have to play the game to see if I should back the next KS and get a bunch of expansions at decent cost. I am backing DI expansion and it is much better with 4 players and adding a fifth is good. Sword and Sail is going for its 3 KS and it is really close. For the 2nd year in a row I am supporting Secret Cabal. I am still debating if I want Rescue Polar Bears.

My first Kickstarter and it had historical theme. (You will see historical theme brought up many times). I bought you with your expansion.

I met Queens games and bought couple of games from the company. I will go on about how I feel about them in a different game. It took a while to get to me, but they did eventually did come in.

I figure I still haven't played you, yet, but I have dreams and aspirations to try you.

A science theme, but a little history too. I know I am historical type of person, but the idea was intriguing and maybe help students understand some famous people.

Another game I haven't played yet,but I know the rules were pretty hard to understand so the creator is trying to improve the game. I will wait and see when it happens.

My first big buy from Queen Games. I paid $160 for this, Lancaster, Shogun and its expansion. The history theme in all of them caught my eye and I think I was reading a Sunne Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman that made this game seem fun. I am going to have to try them all.

Delivered: Oct '13
On time?: (Dec'12)-Nope, late by 10 months. I think the delivery date was too ambitious. He did throw in some card sleeves.
Company: Mayday Games
Website: maydaygames.com
Communication: He was pretty good, but lot of things went wrong to push things back. It was nice he showed a video of opening the games and pictures of games arriving.

Update: Played it and the expansion. A very good to great game to play with friends who like conflict,but don't want to make enemies. The Casino expansion, I don't know if it added anything...but it did make the game go quicker and shift the strategy to avoiding the Casino. I think the buying shipping trucks should increase for price and yearly payments.

The oldest Kickstarter I have still out. I could go on and on what problems we have faced with the creator, but you can read that in the fraudulent or controversial kickstarter geeklist.

What drew me to the game was the government aspect of the game. The hardest thing for my students to learn is abstract concepts and American government is one of those. I hope the game comes some time this year or the next.

Communication: If this had been my first kickstarter, I might have not pledged again. It is the worst out of all of my 60+ kickstarters. Currently we are relying on assistant to achieve what Mark hasn't done yet.

Update: It was finally delivered, the pieces look good. Now to read the rules.

Update 10/8 I have no desire to play it. It is on the trade/sale pile.

I had backed Conquistador twice and I saw this game. The game was okay when I played though the first time we messed up on the rules here and there, but to Nuke someone is always fun.

I didn't figure why people had a problem with the theme. If I think on it, it might due to how modern and possible this could happen, but killing a gangster or blowing up a galaxy is okay theme.

I jumped on this bandwagon after not getting Viticulture, which I saw and did not get. I fixed that by getting this and Viticulture. It was a fun campaign with lots of positive comments from the community and Alan and Jamey. They are good people.

Oh this game jumped out at me. Slavery theme and I teach this everyday. I had no choice, but to get it. The Gods wanted me to have this. Now I just have to play it especially after I finished setting up already. It does help that it has single player option.

Pledge: Freedom: Underground Railroad and Stretch Goals
KS funded: Aug '13
Delivered: Dec '13
On time?: (Sept '13) Late, too ambitious with stretch goals and such

Another steal two games in one kickstarter. I got this and Captains of Industry. I got CoI because it might fit with my class and discussing industrialization or because it looked cool. CH is the idea of creating a city and managing it. It looks fun and I cannot wait to get both games.

Pledge: City Hall and Captains of Industry
KS funded: Oct '13
Delivered: CH- Aug '14, CoH- Dec '14
On time?: (May '14) Late, rumor is City Hall in Aug and Captains of Industry in Nov.
Company: TMG
Website: playtmg.com
Communication: Okay, about once a month.
Played: Not yet, just got City Hall today, 8/29

Update: I still haven't played it yet (5/30)

Update 10/8/16: It remains unplayed and unsold. The resale value of it is low. I hope to play it one day.

I bought 1st edition in 2013 and played it. It was a cool game with some mess up on the board, which bugs me. I got the 2nd ed that will fix some mistakes and the stretch goals should make this even more enjoyable.

Pledge: 2nd Ed., Heat, rioting Gangs, One Dirty Bomb, One Rocket Launcher, assortment of Five Made Men Cards, and Stretch Goals
KS funded: May '14
Delivered: Delivered
On time?: (Dec '14) May '15, 6 months late.
Company: Common Games
Website: commonman.com
Communication: Awesome, Karl Fenner shares with us through all process and what is going on with the game board and pieces. It is pretty cool.

It has been postpone to May...

Update: The 2nd edition just arrived at my door barely staying in May. It took a year to produce, but I had no issue especially with the great communication by Common Games. Now I have the summer to play the game. I am pretty excited for this game.

Update 10/8/16: We played the game and most of the group enjoyed it.
