Following in the footsteps of Alien Frontiers' successful Kickstarter campaign, Tasty Minstrel Games has started a campaign of their own to fund production of my latest game, Eminent Domain!

I am very pleased at how Eminent Domain has turned out. Art is being done by BGDF member Gavan Brown, and his cover art has proven very popular among supporters and on BGG.

For some background info on the game, check out the "Influences on Eminent Domain" GeekList on BoardGameGeek. I like the game a lot, and judging by the success of the kickstarter campaign thus far, I think it will be a big hit! We are not quite at our funding goal yet, and it would be nice to overshoot that goal so we can afford to add a little extra value to each box. So please check it out, pledge if you'd like, and even if you decide it's not for you, please tell your friends who might be interested to visit the Kickstarter page.

Thanks,
Seth

Nifty!

I just "kicked in," as it were. I hope it makes! You've had a tremendous upwelling of support, given how long (or short) your drive has run and your very ambitious goal.

I hope y'all make it, and look forward to seeing it!

Amazing Success!!

I thought you were unsainly overconfident, but you got 20k in 10 days!!! That's absolutely amazing. I've never seen such a great response over a project. The support just skyrocketed!!! (is this English?).

My sincere congratulations to Seth and Michael. Not only for putting out a great game, but also for making a devoted effort to reach an outstanding level of communication with their customers.

Keep thinking!

I love it when people I like

I love it when people I like win, it is like I just won; so in this case it is like I just got 20K, only I didn't :(

Good job guys, I can think of no one more deserving of such a positive response. Kudos!

ThankYouThankYouThankYou!

I'm totally excited that the fund raising has gone as well as it has, it's exceeded my expectations! And there's still time left, I expect a surge of orders after people see the game en-mass at BGG.con (there will be 5 or 6 copies there, brought by people who have printed their own copies).

This is totally exciting for me :)

Thanks to all who supported and spread the word! There's still time to get in for anyone still looking to.

Success!

As you may have noticed, we reached our funding goal a couple of weeks ago. Now that the Kickstarter campaign is over, I'm happy to say that we MORE THAN DOUBLED our funding goal, raising almost $50,000 to produce Eminent Domain!

That's just awesome! I have my work cut out for me now, to provide the best production possible for this game which appears to be going over very well with people who have printed out a copy and people who played it at BGG.con!

Thanks to everybody who supported the project, who spread the word, and to everyone here at BGDF.com, without whom I would never have come this far as a designer!

Congrats Seth-

Expect this method of using kickstarter to pre-order/fund games to be copied many times.

Its great that you guys are at the front of it. Having a successful kickstarter campaign in which the game gets published and shipped quickly should begat more successful kickstarter campaigns!
