FAQ

I live in Peru/Canada/Colombia/USA, why are you posting on a Saturday?!

Because I'm writing this from Europe in the future where it's already Sunday. Timezones be crazy.

Why are there a bunch of non-board games in the board game list?

Because the Tabletop games category on Kickstarter includes anything remotely related to board games and sometimes things slip through my filters.

Why is this future award winning board game and literal saviour of humanity missing from your list?

Sometimes my filters get a bit overzealous and discard actually valid projects. If you feel something is missing for this reason, leave a comment and I'll add it (maybe).

Can I donate all my money to you?

No

Can you help me promote my game?

Please no. I make lists. Nothing more.

Your list is full of errors and now my coffee is cold!

Indeed, this fine piece of code runs purely on not green M&M's, so anything can happen. Leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

donio,

Tiny Epic Cthulhu looks neat. On first glance it looked similar to Tiny Epic Defenders (which I like) but this one has a bunch of other stuff going on. Bag building/management, action upgrades (reminds me of Maglev Metro) and the spinner thingy. This has no trouble funding so I will wait for retail.
