In a few hours the GLORY TO ROME KICKSTARTER will follow EMINENT DOMAIN and FLASH POINT: FIRE RESCUE to become only the third Board & Card Game project to achieve over $35,000 in Kickstarter pre-orders. In fact, at over $70,000 in pledges, the project recently overtook GAMEFUL SECRET HQ as the most funded (to date) Games project of any kind!

 


THANK YOU! I've been humbled, even a little shocked by the scale of the response to the Glory To Rome, Black Box - I certainly understand that creating a tidal wave of pent up demand by responding to clear customer demand several years late is neither smart nor sustainable, so while I do envisage Cambridge Games Factory running more Kickstarter projects in the future, I certainly don't expect our next projects will be at a similar scale.

We also got a huge benefit from several other major projects such as Flash Point: Fire Rescue, Lyssan and Fealty being on Kickstarter at the same time.

We've been running various sweepstakes during the project and I'd like to use this Geeklist to announce the winners in one place. You can find details on the GLORY TO ROME KICKSTARTER project page.

This has already been an incredible experience, but while the Kickstarter funding phase is about to complete, the work for Glory To Rome Black Box is only just beginning. In particular, I will be flying back to Shanghai along with several members of the CGF leadership team to help make sure that your games get shipped out properly.

Finally, I'm not sure we're going to make it but if we do reach our final target of $75,000 then we're offering a final grand prize for our Kickstarter sweepstake of flights and hotels to bring a lucky Geek over with us to help out!

Cheers,

Ed Carter
