Just some thoughts:
- $75 for a Snakes and Ladders clone is insanely expensive.
- You say it'll be sold for under $20 locally - why does it cost $75 to get it through your campaign?
- Doing North America only is really cutting down your potential for backers.

Also is there a reason for it being on GoFundMe and not on something like Kickstarter?

Other than that, good luck.

It's great to see that you're diving in! I would suggest spending some time playing modern hobby games before you proceed with this -- games have come a long way and there are lots of different kinds of games that you would be competing with.

Having priced out games myself, I also think your goal is way too low -- $6500 is not very much to make and ship 500 copies of a game with the components you've described, especially if you're going to be commissioning art.

Good luck!
