Recognize Kickstarter United / OPEIU 153 

2019-10-01 If you are interested in supporting the Kickstarter United labor organizers a good twitter account to follow is ksr_united. They have requested people continue to use Kickstarter while labor negotations are ongoing. I recommend following their lead, because coordinating action is important in collective bargaining.

2019-10-18 I identify campaigns that tag themselves with #RecognizeKSRU, but some may support Kickstarter United even if not tagged, since they may have launched before the tag started being used. Check their campaign page and contact the creator if you have questions.

Kickstarter offers a list of all ongoing RPG-related kickstarters although some RPG campaigns do not tag themselves as an RPG. (You have to ask Kickstarter support to tag you as an RPG, there's no way to set it from the interface.)


 


If you know of other good articles on Kickstarter for table top Role Playing Games (RPGs) I'd like to hear about them at cdr AT telemancy.com.

RPG Kickstarter Tips


General Kickstarter Tips

These aren't about RPGs but have very interesting information anyway:


Useful Books on Crowdfunding

I also recommend these books for anyone interested in crowdfunding:


Other useful advice on Kickstarter

CrowdFunding Dojo has some excellent advice:
Avoid talking about donations. They're backing you, unlike a donation people are getting (hopefully awesome) stuff.
Second, NEVER talk in the third person on the campaign page ("Katie is...") People back people. ALWAYS First or second person.
Third, Backers are making your dream come true. They need to empathise with you. Share WHY this is important to you in DETAIL.
The last image of a Kickstarter video stays up when done. Remind people to share and pledge on it.


Advice from other successful kickstarter creators: When planning your funding goal remember that Kickstarter takes 5%, and Stripe takes 3-5%.

One tricky bit of the Kickstarter interface: you to use the same button you use to make proposals to go ahead and set up/launch an approved project.

For people who haven't done Kickstarter before, here are some useful things to know about the surveys you do at the end to gather information from backers. These are courtesy Steven Long from Hero Games' Book of the Empress Kickstarter:


You can only send out a Kickstarter survey to each tier once, so be sure to ask for everything you need. And all questions must be answered (other than the optional bits of address) so make sure you give backers a way to answer "none" or "n/a" for not applicable or what have you.

An interesting thing Zombie Orpheus did for their Hands of Fate kickstarter was direct the backer to a survey on Survey Monkey, which at the end gave the backer a code to enter in at the Kickstarter survey, as the answer to the only question. That gave them much more flexibility in asking what additional rewards people wanted.

If your project expenses are in a different currency than you're fundraising in, think about impacts of exchange rate changes between getting the funds and spending them. For instance, if you're raising Canadian Dollars but paying US Dollars (or vice versa) this can bite you. 10-20% moves can happen within the time frame of a project.

Update 2014-02-10: Kickstarter now permits backers to change their addresses after the initial survey, if you select "Let backers change their address".

Update 2014-10-29: Kickstarter has improved its handling of shipping: https://www.kickstarter.com/blog/weve-made-shipping-rewards-a-lot-more-flexible . You can set shipping costs per-country (or "rest of world") for each tier (although it may get tedious). It still counts the shipping cost vs. the funding goal, unfortunately, but at least now one can charge a different price for US, Canada, Europe, and Australia, without needing 4x as many reward entries.

Update 2015-01-06: Kickstarter is switching from Amazon Payments to Stripe.


Potentially useful places to tell about your RPG Kickstarter other than your own fanbase. (Podcasts, blogs, etc that would like to hear about RPG kickstarters, feel free to email me at cdr AT telemancy.com if you'd like me to add you to this list.



 

Top 10 RPG Kickstarters

Here are the Top 10 RPG Kickstarters I know of. If you know any I missed, please let me know via email or twitter (@carlrigney). This list is by amount pledged, but I also track Top 10 RPG Kickstarters by number of backers.

Kickstarter's Most Funded Tabletop Games includes all kinds of table-top games, not just RPGs, and doesn't show games that pre-date the division of games into Video Games and Table Top Games at Kickstarter.
