Top 10 Funded Boardgame Kickstarter Projects
Please note: I am no longer keeping up with this geeklist. I am not interested in Miniature games and since the top ten has been taken over by them this list no longer interests me. I hope you have enjoyed the 18 months of updates... I am changing the list to allow public additions if someone has the desire to keep up with it.Chris SmithUnited Kingdom
Kickstarter seems to be a great way for small publishers and self-publishers to get their games to the market. For some people, the amount of money being collected is truly amazing to see.
This is a list of the top 10 funded projects on Kickstarter.
As you look over these projects, please be aware that a these are gross funds. Amazon.com, Kickstarter, and shipping has to be paid. Also, added costs associated with bonuses have to be subtracted from the total.
Congratulations to everyone on this list!
Also, this is only for board and card games. There are a few items in this catagory on Kickstarter that are not actually games such as the Settlers of Catan premium board or the various designs of poker cards.
PLEASE NOTE: Games below the top 10 are games that have fallen out of the top 10 games and are now Zombie entries. Any games that have subsequently raised enough money to exceed one of the zombie entries listed but that have never actually been in the top 10 are not in this geeklist. Games outside the top 10 remain on the list for historical reference only.
Do you want to know more about Kickstarter? Do you want to know what it takes to run a successful project? I highly recommend Richard Bliss's The Game Whisperer PodCast Richard interviews people about Kickstarter, including people who have run successful and unsuccessful projects. Very informative and a must if you are thinking about starting your own project.
More great advice is being provide by Tasty Minstrel Games. Includes a great powerpoint with video. Check out the information here: http://playtmg.com/blogs/michaels-blog-1
