Crowd Funded Games

On Monday August 10th the #BoardGameHour twitter discussion will turn its attention to crowd funded board games. This might well focus mainly on Kickstarter but any crowd funding platform is applicable.

I love this cartoon!


Your "Crowd Funded Games" questions are:

Q1: Do you back crowd funded games? How many games do you tend to "kickstart" a year? #BoardGameHour

Q2: What are the main upsides to you as a consumer when crowdfunding a game? #BoardGameHour

Q3: What are the pros / cons for a publisher when it comes to crowdfunding? #BoardGameHour

Q4:  What are the main downsides to you as a consumer when crowdfunding a game? #BoardGameHour

Q5: Do you have any crowdfunding regrets? Games you backed? Games you didn't back?  #BoardGameHour

Q6: Big question (10 mins), is crowdfunding good for the industry or likely to damage the board gaming? #BoardGameHour

Q7: What are the top 3 games to come from crowdfunding? How do they rank on Board Game Geek? #BoardGameHour

Q8: What type of games (theme, mech, feel, style) do you tend to back on kickstarter? #BoardGameHour

Q10: What will turn you off a crowdfunding campaign? #BoardGameHour

Q11: What is coming up on kickstarter that I need to watch out for? #BoardGameHour

It's simple, to join in all you need to do is add the #boardgamehour hash-tag to your tweets, during the hour. To see what everyone else is saying just search for #boardgamehour!

Making #boardgamehour easier!

To make this live Twitter discussion easier, I have made a room on Nurph.com which we can all use. All you have to do is make sure you are logged into Twitter then go to http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour/chats and log in, using your Twitter account. You don't have to use this, everything will be the same as normal, but if you do us Nurph, it acts like a chat room for twitter and add the Hashtag automatically :0)

For one hour every week, it's time to talk nothing but board games. #boardgamehour happens across the western world Every Monday - start times are:
2pm (Eastern time)
7pm (UK)
As long as you have a twitter account, mine is @boardgamehour for instance, you can be part of this rapidly growing movement.

See you on Twitter (using the hashtag #BoardGameHour) of Nurph (http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour) at 7pm BST, 2pm EDT
