Dan talks to our very own, Carla Kopp of Weird Giraffe Games, about her Kickstarter campaign.
Board Game Geek (BGG) is a fantastic site but most creators that use it have a love/hate relationship with it. The site has a lot of users, is a fantastic resource for all things tabletop, and is a great way to spread word of your crowdfunding campaign. However, although useful, the site is archaic and can be troublesome to navigate, especially for newer users.
There are many paths that lead into the Indie Jungle – the “self-publishing” path, the “crowdfunding” path, the “pitch to a publisher” path and even the “print-on-demand” path. However, there is another path that many new game designers often overlook, one that can be uniquely fun, creatively challenging and infinitely rewarding…the “game design contest” path.
Kickstarter campaigns are crazy. Launch day is probably the craziest of all. In Lesson #4, Dan takes you through his launch-day, marketing checklist. It includes a great list of what to post and where.
