Wonderful. He's definitely onto a winner here, if only Poots had shares Id have bought years ago.

Too bad he didn't mention the highest funded game: Exploding Kittens.

KS essentially turns your followers into cash. It would have been nice to see someone familiar with KS analyze the similarities, or at least explanations behind EK and KD:M, as well as Veronica Mars and other KS of popular IP's and creators.

"Kickstarter: What Exploding Kittens and Kingdom Death: Monster have in Common (even though they seem to have nothing in common)"

So, even Fortune doesn't understand what the trending value means

They do, they're just using it for the shock value. If someone had noticed a little bit earlier, they could have written it up when the trending was above 100 million. Wouldn't that have made for a more notable article?

The article was probably generated in 10-15mins after 10-20mins of Internet research...

I highly doubt KDM will raise more than 10 million

if it raises 8 million then that is impressive for a board game to say the least.

Kinda wished they would have used an updated picture of the game.

Past data shows that 45-day campaigns generally raise around 10% of their total backing in their first two to three days, suggesting Kingdom Death could realistically top $50 million


Hold your horses...
10 or 12M, I can see that happening.
But 50M?
No sir.

If you *really* knew how to make money, would you be writing online articles? laugh

We need to get that link to the Duffer Brothers so they can make a series about KDM for Netflix.

What was Exploding Kittens' total funding amount? I want to make sure we beat such a travesty of an "ungame" with a real game like KD:M.

It's already up to 5 Million, why do you think 50 million is so unrealistic? (bear in mind there's still 40 days to go!)

Exploding Kittens total will be crushed at $8.8mil.

$50mil is completely insane. Real-world trending at $250k a day (excluding first and second days until the sum total for project) for the remaining 40 days projects the total at $15mil, which is probably still far too high.

If we reach $8.8mil we will be considered incredibly super awesome amazing successful.

What I'm worried about is a period of stagnation until day 40 or so when people start seeing how late it is and boomp up their pledges/make a pledge.

But I can really see this game moving up only slightly in the next few days, when the expansions start to come out then it'll affect those ordering the core game and a notable surge will follow.

In truth, none of it really matters. We funded Poots beyond wildly optimistic standards. Should be enough there for him to keep the lights on for a few years or so.
