Hello fellow geeks! New guy here.

I am backing a kickstarter that i cannot fathom hasn't gotten more backers yet.

Is there an appropriate forum for posting a recommendation for other geeks to check out a kickstarter?

Thanks!

Yeah, you'll want to find the game in the BGG database and post there. Alternatively, there is a Kickstarter sub-forum on BGG specifically for posting about KS.

I realise there is a forum for each game. But the whole point is to get people who don't know the game already to check it out.

I can't find the kickstarter forum in the overview:
https://boardgamegeek.com/forums/region/1/boardgamegeek

Am I looking in the wrong place?

It's an odd setup from other forums, took me a while to get my bearings, but it does work!

This could also be a queue that there is something wrong with the game. Do more research on it to be sure that it is in fact a legit Kickstarter and trustworthy.

Kickstarter is a family, so it doesn't show up under the forum sections like General Gaming, New User Questions, etc.

The words on the front page are clickable, so if you see the thread

Crowdfunding: Kickstarter General An analysis of all 36 successful tabletop games in January on Kickstarter

Clicking Crowdfunding: Kickstarter will take you to Crowdfunding: Kickstarter

Clicking General will take you to Crowdfunding: Kickstarter General

and clicking An analysis of all 36 successful tabletop games in January on Kickstarter

will take you directly to that thread.

(This works for all games, so if you see a thread for Twilight Struggle Rules Title of thread, you could click on TS to go to the game, Rules to go to TS: Rules, or the thread to go to the thread)

A revamped design is in open beta, though.

The open beta is for the game pages. They're doing things one at a time. The marketplace got a facelift, then geekmod, now the game pages.

That word.

I do not think it means what you think it means.
