Full Backing

Kickstarter is a tricky thing. It’s equal parts investment tool, shopping experience, and casino. I’ve purchased several things from Kickstarter and I’ve had to ban myself from the service a few times until debts were paid off. Reaper has more of my money than I’m comfortable with for products I seldom use.

I haven’t really been burned yet. But I’ve been lucky. The worst I suffered was the Order of the Stick delays, but it’s hard to protest when injury is involved. There have been some sketchy products that cost people a lot of money. Most of these were vanishing projects were video games, but a few tabletop miniature products or board games have struck our community.
