Hmm, never heard of boardgamestarter but the site doesn't seem to be finished - the "about us", "the team" and even the "terms and conditions" pages are (as of writing this) empty. It seems an odd choice to launch a £50,000 project as the first ever project on a half-finished crowd-funding site nobody's heard of

It also looks like they don't have https set up yet. When I try https://boardgamestarter.co.uk/ the page times out (and SSL Shopper confirms no security certificate is found for the site), and the registration form looks like it submits to a regular non-SSL, unencrypted http page, which is a recipe for people's sign-up information being stolen.

I'll keep an eye on this for the future as all of this is fixable and it would be interesting to have a crowd-funding site dedicated to boardgames and boardgamers, but right now this is an avoid for me I'm afraid.
