Kickstarter - The modern Philosopher's stone or Much Ado About Nothing

Kickstarter has been a blessing and a curse.Recommend
It helped game designers to publish their boardgame visions or even establish their own company without outside interference. Some visions surpassed our expectations others turned it illusions of grandeur or even nightmares.
When MTG entered the gaming scene it opened up a completely new world of playing games. It also brought two deadly sins to the innocent gaming community: Envy + Greed.
Kickstarter brought us the rest!
These days Kickstarter has turned into pre-sale platform for boardgames, with style over substance dominating most projects.
This is a personal list about how I feel about backing certain Kickstarter projects. It's a reminder that sometimes less is more and not to believe all the hyperbole here on BGG.
