What is EXCEPTIONAL is...

Over 125+ backers - are FIRST-TIME backers! That means all those people are NEW to the Kickstarter Community... That's really shocking! It seems like you have tapped into another community or base of gamers: Christian Gamers.

Maybe you should hold a Google's Poll and ask some questions like:

1. Is this the FIRST-TIME you back something on Kickstarter (KS)?

2. If it is, can you tell us why? (Drop-down with choices + other)

3. Do you plan on supporting OTHER Kickstarters (KS) in the future?

Something simple like that - just to get an idea about WHO are your backers.

Cheers.

That's a good thought.

That's a good thought. :-)

Would you put a google poll in an update?

Use Google Forms, there is a "Tabletop Game" SKIN (Blue or colored)... It's really EASY to use.

And yes I would put it in an Update... Saying: "How to better serve Backers" or something like that.

1. Is this your FIRST-TIME backing a Kickstarter (Yes/No)

2. If YES, please select of the following which best suits your reason for backing or choose other (if such is the case...)
(1. Facebook user who liked the introductory video
2. Christian gamer who liked the historical aspect of the game
3. Family parent who thinks a great way to teach historical geography
4. Other)

3. Do you plan on supporting other Kickstarters in the future (Yes/No/Maybe)

Something sweet and short like that... Should take maybe 30 minutes to draft and make available... I would DESIGN the "Google Form" FIRST and then when it's up and running - follow-up with an Update asking people to answer a brief SURVEY.

Cheers!

Thanks! Yeah, the campaign

Thanks!

Yeah, the campaign has slowed down a little bit the last couple days. I don't know if it is due the holidays, or that it's in that "slow" part of the campaign. Hopefully we can unlock the first stretch goal pretty soon!

Sorry been busy...

Haven't had the chance to post any comments... Been busy with 4+ hours of training. Watching videos and then doing exercises. As I mentioned in another thread - I am focusing most of my energies on a "new" project. And in order to do that, I need to train with the basics to get a better understanding about HOW to implement things the correct way. Or at the very least with some kind of principles and practices.

You should post in the COMMENT section of the main page where we are at with the different "Social Goals". I'm posting it here - asking you to tell us how many "shares" are remaining, etc. Would be good to know what is happening on that front (not an Update, just a comment...)

Best.

*** Joke ***

Mr. Harmon,

Can you add "Battling" to your game??? LOL

(I know - it's not that type of game... Hehehe!)

Come on people...

We only need ONE (1) MORE "Backer" to reach the 2nd Stretch Goal and propel "Portals & Prophets" above the $16,000 USD mark!

It's been a great journey from beginning to end. Kept everyone tuned-in to see how this KS campaign would fare.

Looks pretty positive - I'm sure @Andrew is very elated about it!

Cheers everyone...

Cool: We made $16,000

Everyone will get UV Coating on their Board and Game Box!!!

Amazing effort by everyone involved in making this Kickstarter a success!

I guess @Andrew's next WISH is to reach 300 Backers... We're 4 Backers from that goal - so it's very possible.

We probably have 1-2 more HOURS of Peak Internet Usage in the USA. So we'll see how the remainder of the hours play out.

But it's great to know EVERYONE who backed the game will be getting the UV coating...

300 is more of a SYMBOLIC goal! Cheers.

Congrats!

Andrew,

Congratulations on successfully funding for your first outing! Now, as they say, the real work begins. It's time to actually produce it and deliver it to your Backers. All the best!

Cheers,
Joe

Thanks everyone!

Thank you for everyone here who supported and encouraged me throughout this campaign! The community here at BGDF is the best!

I think I'll be taking off this evening, but as The Professor says, tomorrow the real work begins! I CAN'T WAIT to get this game created! It blows me away how so many people will come together to help a vision become reality.

Great Podcast!

Andrew,

I've been listening to BGDL for quite some time and I'm always impressed by the folks he asks to interview. I made some additional comments over on his site, but suffice it to say that it was a great interview and I'm proud of your accomplishment in an area where there has not been one success among nearly 100 Christian-inspired games for which I've reviewed their KS projects and material for the past, nearly, seven years.

Cheers,
Joe
