I know it's much too early for a definitive answer, but can you give us an idea about the possible schedule of the convention game sessions?

Something like, "We usually prefer to run events like these during the afternoon on Saturdays" would be really helpful.

Thank you!

Thanks for the tip. Too funny -- according to Backertracker, it's trending towards $5 million! Gotta love how that first day skews the results! ;-)

Kickstarter finally updated -- it shows it trending towards $1.2 million. Now that might even be possible! :-D

Guys, Im really worried here, it seems to be hard to reach the funding goal! :)

Steve, I guess this response is heartwarming, even overwhelming?

I'm hoping that it reaches $250k, which is a bit more than Dungeon Fantasy. We'll have to wait and see.

TFT fandom laughs at SJG's puny stretch goals. :)

OGRE DE topped out at over $920K. I think that TFT was even more popular back in the day, and OGRE DE had less word-of-mouth going for it than TFT does. So knock on wood, and here's hoping for a truly amazing Kickstarter!

I'm sure TFT was more popular, but the buy in to Ogre DE was a lot higher. Still, I'll be stoked if we get more than 5,000 backers. That would be amazing!!!

The game deserves it for sure.

Huh. And when I see "puny stretch goals," my brain translates this as "tightly scripted, well-planned project management."

:-P

Yeah, 5k backers would be a very good sign.
