I've only ever seen a preview page once, I guess it doesn't give me the option to follow my own project when I'm logged in lol.

Submitted for approval and I dropped the price by a couple of dollars per pack. I might even put up something like, liking it on facebook drops the price a dollar. My wife suggested yesterday that the packaging should be a loot bag, which I though was an awesome idea. I might make a deluxe pack with a loot bag to carry the box around in.

Looks cool Beefcake :) I started liking a lot of nice card games of late. This seems to be very nice to.

But NZD a new currency on the list.

the only thing I am missing from the current kickstarter page is stretch goals. Just a few to get an Idea what we can expect.

And something KS exclusive does always help with AD (acquisition disorder) :)

Also try to get some video up as intro. KS with video are more likely to end with more money :)

And any thing to make it more exclusive works I like the loot bag idea as well.

It's gone live! Thanks remi bureau, you're the first backer!
Thanks mezzin. I'm going to work on the video today and put it up and I'll do an update about stretch goals and also put them up on the main page too. Exclusives are a good idea. Maybe an exclusive cop card. Or driver card.

That would be awesome or just a extra card same rules and everything just different artwork. so you don't upset the balance of the game.

The main thing is you want backers and backers want to feel special.

you need a lot of backers and the games is around 25 NZD so you need around 400 backers not a lot but you need to work on getting them.  And also you project is based in new zeeland so that makes it hard for US backers (or so they think) to back your project silly but it a truth.

Short todo list:
get it on boardgamegeek now!
put some money on advertisement on BBG
Updates every other day (let everybody see how great your project it)
Add more artwork every time change it around whatever make it a living project
Babysit the comment section.

Have a look at this project http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johnwrot/the-kings-armory-the-tower-defense-board-game-0 this guy John Wort worked very hard for every single backer. you can get some idea how he did it.

Thank you! You can't believe how happy this is making me!  ;D
No problem I like the artwork and I am into smaller games of late because of my kids and this just fills that need.

Already have a page on BGG, and have contacted them about advertising so the ad should go up within a couple of days ($500 USD minimum though but I'm sure it will be worth it)

I'll be putting art up as it comes in and in one of my first updates I'll be asking for people to like it on facebook to receive a dollar discount. (not much but better than nothing)

Thanks again, another backer just come in too. :)

Good idea. I was actually thinking about putting all the rules onto cards to go into the box as well instead of a sheet of paper. That wouldn't add much at all to the total cost.

You could do cards or a small pamphelet. Have you potentially thought about a deluxe box as an add-on? Something made out of stronger materials and can hold potential future expansions. One that looked like a safe would be neat.

The Pledgemanager opening up again cleaned me all out for the coming months, but I do want to wish you good luck on your project.
