For all you gamers way more experienced then I. Is there a theory on why most KickStarters "start" on Tuesdays at 3:00? As opposed to a weekend? Just asking

Isn't it related to the time it ends?
I haven't done the maths but it seems that the moment it ends is more crucial than the moment it starts.

Because what else are you going to do at work on a Tuesday afternoon?

Less people will actually see a project on the weekend because they're busy doing their own free-time things. I stay home most weekends, but even then I'm playing games, watching Twitch, relaxing, etc. I rarely spend time cruising around Kickstarter on weekends to see what's new, and I'm a heavy Kickstarter user.

That's more Lunchtime At Work type of activity.

In USA, everything gets released on Tuesdays. New Music, books etc. But that's just a guess, but I remember New music Tuesdays being a thing since I was little.

Interesting.
Here in my part of Europe, new movies are out Wednesdays and many stores are closed on sunday/monday. Apart from that, I never noticed any fixed day for new books, music, etc...
Maybe it's the case and I haven't noticed though but I'm not sure.

That's not completely accurate. Books and music tend to be Tuesdays. Comic books are on Wednesdays. Board games produced/distributed by Asmodee are on Thursdays. Movies (in the theater) are Fridays.

And video games are almost always released on a Tuesday.
