Well I have seen lots of geeklist about how KickStarter experience has been to them, so I decided to do mine too.

I fist came to KS with the Order of Sticker Reprint drive, even if I already had all those books. Since then I just browse it from time to time, until I decided to join BBG to check on some games I was playing. This year has been very active for me, spceially as I'm using KS as an preorder system and managing to get some hard to ship items when they hit retail.

I live in Mexico, so the only real option I usually have to get gamming items is Amazon and most of the times only if Amazon is handling directly the item. Usually when the item comes from a third party store the shipping skyrockets or just plainly can't be shipped.

I will keep posting on this list items when they shipping is due and how has been the fullfitment and shipping experience.

Also, if the item was worth the money I spent on it.

Pledge: I just wanted an 8x10 print
Was it on time: Yes
Experience

This was what started all. At first I wanted just a little involvement on this reprint drive. But then the campaign really picked up, and a mini expansion for the Order od the Stick Adventure Game was developed. I added it to my pledge, and since I was just for a print without signature I got it on time. The concept of this expansion is good. The OotS skills are a good laugh (as many other things in the game). I like the game, but I feel it's too time consuming to hit the table often. Also, the humor is too obscure to non-RPG savvy players or for people that don't know about OotS. A real pity.

Was it worth it: For me, it was money well expended. The print quality was great, the magnet is still on my fridge, the coloring book is awaiting my kid to be able to use it and the OotSAG has seen some plays.

Pledge: Went all in with this
Was it on time: No and I don't think I will ever see it
Experience

After my good experience with the OotS drive I decided to get into the board game version of the online game, the Kingdom of Loathing. The campaign was good, but as the time for delivery got closer problems started to plague the publisher. At first it seems ok, as Evertide was keeping us posted on the issues with production. But then they started to send the game to the US backers and no word on how they were going to send it to the Rest of the World.

So after 2 years of delay, one day they popped and said that they had done some excesive spendings on prototyping and shipping to the US, and so there was no money left and they were gong to close their offices and with those saying will finishing production. They wanted more money for shipping and if you send them an email they will try to send you the game. I tried to get ahold of them and couldn't, so I'm now wit no game and no way to get them.

Well, KS is not a binding contract of get something, so you need to be really careful and get some some intel on people that are running the campaign to see if they have some experience before commiting too much money there.

Was it worth it: At the time I thought this was a great idea, really bad experience with the system, specially with accountability of the publisher.
