Looks like today was the best day yet! Here's hoping it gets up to $75K so we can all get hardcovers!

Also--on the "hot" list at Kicktraq!

I am watching the clock tick away, still trying to decide whether or not to pull the trigger. Either way this has been a great campaign to follow and I hope everyone gets the hardcover books. Congratulations to everyone and well done Escapade Games.

I was intrigued by this...but the more I read, the more it seemed designed for kids/families. Which is totally fine, just not what I'd be interested in.
What are your thoughts on this?

Here's a video explaining our thoughts on it (as the designers): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fas9riujns&feature=plcp

Short version is we believe Story Realms is a really fun game for people of all ages. We have done extensive playtesting and demoing of this game to groups of all adults, with great results. If the theme appeals to you, you will likely find a lot to enjoy in this game. There is a lot of freedom of interpretation for the Storyteller to set their own tone, and the pre-made adventures touch on resonant themes that will offer a different experience to adults than kids. The world and setting is rich and detailed, with infinite stories to explore (and we'll provide you with hooks and idea starters a plenty)

I want to make sure you saw this note about sending to specific schools:

Angela Hickman Newnham wrote:
@Dan With the gifting option, we will be taking requests from educators who want to use the game and materials, and matching donations to that to ensure that each copy goes somewhere where it will be used (and not collect dust in a corner). We will be announcing more info as we get the program set up, including how to request the game/materials for your classroom/school/etc. Our commitment to this initiative includes providing support and resources to teachers/librarians/youth leaders and we're going to try to continue expanding this program moving forward, as well as provide access to the curriculum/activity guide for teachers outside of the gifting program. If you want to give a gift of the game to a specific school or program only, you can add to your pledge for an additional copy (which will be shipped to you) and deliver it yourself, but that won't include the printed curriculum materials (they will be available for download though). We're really excited to do this, but are still working out a lot of the logistics and figuring out how we can best support educators as they us Story Realms as an engaging and exciting teaching tool!

Thanks for the additional info... Sounds like my donation would be sitting in limbo while they figure it out.

Just passed $75K, so we're upgrading to hardcover. Don't miss out. This is the best deal for this awesome, innovative game!
