I can't believe how much this makes me smile. Intended or not, that is possibly the greatest thing I have ever read. Well played sir.

I've been a tepid kickstarter compared to my best friend who is pushing 70 starts.

From Tabletop games:
We've funded and received Zombicide and Dwarven Miner.

We're still waiting for:
Mr. Card Game (way way overdue, but the maker is notoriously late with everything he does for his web game, so why should his card game be any different. Supposedly it just rolled off the presses and will be shipping from Dec-Feb)
Zero Hour (Due Feb, though based on recent update it might be a little late)
Havok & Hijinks (Due May)
Incredible Expeditions: Quest for Atlantis (Due March)
Get Lucky (Due April)

I'm considering:
Journey: Wrath of Demons
Shadows of Brimstone
Thrash-Car
Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age
Imba (probably won't get funded)
Bedlam
Privateer

Also, even though I missed out on the kickstarter, I absolutely have to get my hands on Kingdom Death when it comes out.

It's pricey, but I'm making it work.

I like the company & I LOVE the setting (Deadlands is my FAVORITE RPG ever!).

I have so much faith in the fact that I will get multiple uses out of this, that I'm selling my first edition descent stuff, and some Zombcide kickstarter exclusive stuff to cover the costs of this. (I'll have leftover cash from selling those goldmines for some stuff we still need for the baby, so it's win-win!)

Yesterday was the first time I ever went through EVERY SINGLE KICKSTARTER in the tabletop section. It is mindnumbing how many there are, even if ignore the ones that are obvious fails out the gate.

Even more overwhelming going through the successfully funded section and seeing what I missed.

Before now I pretty much relied on word of mouth since I'm friends with so many kickstarter addicts and even then I stayed my hand unless it absolutely seemed made just for me (See: Shadowrun Returns, Dice Rings).

Doing that is where I came up with that list of 7 above. It's a seriously great time to be a tabletop gamer, but it sucks knowing I'll never play some of these games. Kingdom Death and Fallen are two of the biggest I'm bummed I missed out on (though my buddy got in on Fallen, so I'll at least get to play it.)

I also really need to get the Zombicide Expansions. I actually just saw them at the local shop and didn't get them because I was there for something else. Kinda regret it now. Gotta grab em before they get too hard to find.

I'm backing at deluxe.

I also have a prerelease playtest copy if you want to try it.

(If I ever make it to a game night. DOH!)

CD, I was backing TEK Deluxe, do you want me to add on to my order, or have you pulled the trigger yet?
Memoir wouldn't do that...

I pulled the trigger, but let me check into options about changing that. $2 is $2 ;-)

I'm willing to go in on a TEK Deluxe if someone else is still looking for a partner.
Captain Yid - Hell, for 25 million I'd still play. It's not like he is being dared to eat cat crap or anything.

Yes, DE I am in with you!
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
The circle is now complete.
When I left you I was but the learner.
Now I am the Game Master.

Wondering (if it's not happened yet...) if it would work for DG and DE to respectively add to Harb and my pledges. That way we'd hit 2*2. (assuming that we don't have 6 for the next multiple pledge level). Does that work or have y'all pledged already?

I was just about to mention a six pack... but wanted to check if it was a "retailer only" six pack. It is not.

A 6-pack drops the cost to $20.00 each.

Is it too late for me to back out of my pledge?

As in not back at all or as in join someone else's? Either option works fine I just haven't kept up (my brain is a bit slow after work today)

Someone willing to sponsor a 6-pack on their account? I'm willing to reimburse before delivery. We all know how long Kickstarters can be.

I'll need to check. Are we at 5/6?

Whether it's me or someone else - is this the current state of play?
CD - yes
DE - yes
DG - yes
GT -yes
Harb - ?
Skit -no?
