How does the backing rate on this game compare with the original Yardmaster?

It looks like most people backed on the first day and then it has slowed. Are there any other promotions planned?

Define promotions. If you mean stretch goals, they are listed on the main Kickstarter page.

Ah. Not that I have heard of.

Then again, I have not seen too many Kickstarters that both to mention that sort of stuff. The did a contest for Yardmaster, so I wouldn't be surprised if Crash games did another one for Yardmaster Express.

I do know that they have/had paid advertising for the campaign launch because there was an issue with getting the campaign approved on on launch day and there was a reference to advertising that was already out there that the delay could interfere with. The campaign did eventually launch on the planned day, just a few hours later than planed.

Advertising Plans for Yardmaster Express

One of my goals for Crash Games in 2014 was to up my game in respect to advertising. Yardmaster Express is no exception to that. We currently have Banner Ads running on Board Game Geek, a BGG Contest coming that starts on July 10th, "Home Page Takeover" twice on BGG as well as a sponsorship on Kicktraq.com that "skins" their webpage for Yardmaster Express and visitors can lick the large full art add and it will bring them to the Yardmaster Express Kickstarter Page.

Interesting. I'm just wondering why anyone (in the US at least) would NOT back this game at this price. Even if it's not your cup of tea, it's so fast and simple, portable, and works for kids. I'm planning to use it to introduce non-gamers to drafting mechanics before I throw them into a game of 7 Wonders.

I mean, I'm really, really looking forward to this game, but I'm not doing THAT.
