That was an enlightening update.

It was very interesting to compare the number of backers for each project all in one place.

I sometimes believe that GURPS and Dungeon Fantasy get a bit marginalized, but in terms of number of backers for its representative project here, it didn't fare far off from "more popular" items.

I think I'm going to start referring to the April Fools' project as Gag of Bags. ;-)

We've made no decision on what tool best complements our Kickstarter presence; we continue to look at our options and we'll very likely experiment with a few different ideas before finding a Kickstarter companion that works best for us.

I've thought about this too, for many reasons. Some considerable delays in my own projects due to the built-in "oh, and we'll keep your money for 2.5 weeks" in Kickstarter, for example.

If you have a built-in audience, running your own crowdfunding platform may well be an option. Might require coding-savvy to get it done. I'm still looking.

Honestly, if SJG established their own platform for crowdfunding, no matter how simple, I'd ditch Kickstarter in a heartbeat. Just imagine the things SJG could do with that 10% cut KS automatically takes off the top.

The down side is the number of eyeballs Kickstarter attracts is pretty impressive if properly leveraged.
