Lesson #2 – Experience with EU Friendly Fulfillment

Welcome to my second post of experiences and lessons learned as a small publisher using Kickstarter.  This post will try to explain in depth my experience with EU Friendly fulfillment. There were definitely a few issues and delays that were very unsatisfying and the best way to make sure this does not happen to anyone else is to let you know about what I went through.  The company that I worked with for EU Friendly fulfillment was Ideaspatcher. This analysis is not a review of my collaboration with Ideaspatcher but about the overall experience of sending the games to France and providing EU Friendly Fulfillment.

Lesson #1 – Mistakes From My First Kickstarter Campaign

I am fairly new to the board game publishing world and have run 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns in the past two years (Dino Dude Ranch, Dirigible Disaster, Ph. D. The Game). I figure it is time that I reflect back on some of my experiences in order to pass some knowledge that I have gained on to anyone else who might be interested in doing the same. I already have the first 4-5 posts planned for this blog and will try to post new ones as often as I can. This first post is going to touch on what I consider are some of the biggest mistakes I made when running my first campaign (Spoiler Alert: I plan to discuss my experiences with EU friendly shipping in my second post).

Resistor_: Review

Resistance is futile. Resistor_ (don’t forget the underscore) is a quick, two-player romp through a 1980’s cyberwar. Players are one of two competing computer systems. Each system tries to annihilate the other by sending colored signals along the game’s ever-changing wired connections. Fairway reviews this Kickstarter-funded game.
