Spreading the Word / Return or New 4 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
2 questions for you, all.

I saw this KS highlighted on Facebook, Twitter, the Reaper Forums, I made a post on the Acaeum and Troll Lord, and I know DakkaDakka and BGG had posts about it as well.

I also believe (and please don't hate me if I am getting this wrong) that JChannuk made a printable flyer to pass around at local Brick and Mortar stores.

I told 8 different people about it as well to help spread the word.

1) What other gaming forum stomping grounds were hit, and had the word spread at?

I ask because I know its only a matter of time before the posts of "Man, I would have gotten in on this if I had known about it" begin, and I am trying to figure out how that is even possible, because I felt the exposure and awareness to the KS was pretty far spread.

2) Seeing that we did not get as many backers this time around: If you were a backer of the first KS, but not this one, what was your reason, and, if you are a new backer, or new to DF in general, how do you feel the experience went?

Pure curiosity on my part. :)

Cheers, All!

I posted something on TMP (The Miniatures Pages) and also FB pages for local gaming stores. It did seem to me it was pretty well publicized and I too wondered where the other backers were. (I backed KS 1, and then this one at about twice as high a pledge.)

My best, unscientific guess is that some table top gamers can get by with using the first KS sets as stand ins for different environments. This week they are dungeons but next week (with some imagination) they are caverns, the week after that they are a spaceship, etc.

I think DF targeted customers with a different price point on KS2: people who can financially justify having different versions of essentially the same product.

I also believe that the final KS2 backer numbers will have little in common with how many customers will pay full price through the retail shop, once these new pieces become available. A LOT of people were exposed to DF through this campaign and I believe there are plenty who were caught unawares to back it...but who are saving up right now to get some of this sweet sweet Dwarven Forge terrain :-)

the local previous backers knew about the caverns Kickstarter 3/5 of us got involved

where we collectively had 21 sets last time between 5 backers this year we had 25 sets between 3.

everybody got more base sets and more addons (about double the number of addons)

some people wanted to get in but Kickstarter does not accept Paypal (and they didn't contact me or I would have fronted sets for them...)

Yeah, I'm still kinda reeling about that. I put in for a 3 set painted pledge, and somehow, after the Add-Ons, wound up with the same amount of floorspace as I did from backing 5 GT sets + All Add-Ons the first time around. Those Add-Ons just add so much, its unreal.

How the &^%$ did I spend ~$1,050 on a $285 pledge level?!??!

Damn Zaltar....always coming up with awesome stuff I fail my will save at.... :)

I advertised on the HA forum, my local Kijiji, my local gaming club, recruited a total of 5 Montreal area guys and told all my gaming buddies. Those who were not reached probably do not visit gaming forums to start with and could probably be considered beyond reasonable reach.

I wonder if DF could have advertised on the WOTC web site, if that's possible anyway...

Galladril - right there with you - i made the same decision early on - 3 sets is plenty for me and i can't justify spending $500 this time around (like i did last time)... Well i got 3 sets and spent more than double the pledge level (and several hundred more than KS 1). What happened? - Awesomeness happened, I couldn't resist and wish i had spent more (please don't tell me i can add to my pledge... so far i believe the lie i am telling myself...)
