Episode 38 - What Exactly are We Using Kickstarter For?


This episode has us taking an introspectve look at our backing habits on Kickstarter. We look at which types of games backed have stood the test of time, what we personally use the crowd funding service for (and how that has evolved over these past 3 years), and how that lines up with what Kickstarter set out to be in the world of board games. We're also giving first impressions of Key to the City: London and Tramways!
