Dear fellow Board Gamers,

My name is Louis-Clément Schiltz, I am a student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I am currently taking a course on online communities in which our group project is to help game designers launch a new board game called Gladiators. They have started an indiegogo campaign few months ago but didn't reach their funding target.

My group members and myself have to advise them on what went wrong and what should be improved for the upcoming Kickstarter campaign they are planning.

If you are interested in helping us, could you please fill in this 2 minutes survey by Wednesday, October 16th? http://bit.ly/1hOaPev

Also if you have any suggestions concerning the following questions, feel free to reply to this post:

- What are for you the most promising ways to interact with potential board gamers?

- How would you like game designers to interact with you the player ? Would you be willing to interact with them ?

- What are your expectations for an online community of fellow gamers ?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

If you want to have more info about the game or this project, please don't hesitate to contact me !

This is not a Board Gamers site... It is a Board Game DESIGNERS site.

Are you talking about this game: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2088356096/gladiators

If so, the Kickstarter has already begun...

Again a survey in regards to PLAYING not *designing*... You are posting your messages on the wrong kind of website. The community HERE is a community of *designers*, people who are interested in MAKING games... Sure some of us play games also ... but the purpose of this forum is to discuss designing games. Not playing them.

Recommendation

Hi,

Even though I think Questccg is correct in stating that you're posting on the wrong site, I did go to your online survey (and filled it out). I really wonder how you think that this survey will help you to prepare for the upcoming KS campaign. I recommend reading ALL the lessons on: http://www.stonemaiergames.com/kickstarter/ and looking at what the people have to say on this forum: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KickstarterBestPractices/

Best of luck,

Aerjen

Thank you and my bad

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I will take your advise into considerations !
As students we are here to help them create and foster a community around their game so all input is welcomed !
Our role is to find ways to reach to potential players. Indeed the survey won't be of much help for the kickstarter campaign, however we were given some good ideas by our respondents. I am currently consolidating the answers and writing the paper. If you are interested I will be glad to send you a version once it is done !
My apologies again for posting on the wrong website, I thought that designers would have an interest in ways to create a community around their games.
