Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

this is MUCH improved, and in a sense it's frustrating because numbers would be a lot stronger now had they actually made a proper Haslab page like this before we got nearly 4 weeks into the project.

Will it be enough to turn the tide? We shall see!

That is definitely an improvement.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

The new page is way better. I still wish they had a small how-to-play infographic or a 3 minute how-to-play video in addition to the (quite wonderful) 40 minute playtest video.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

They could include some more pictures to scroll through in the main image as well. This Lando figure (3rd release of the exact same figure with different packaging) has 13 pictures, for example: https://hasbropulse.com/collections/...ndo-calrissian

And he is only 1 figure, not 71!

But it is much, much better.

There is already a picture of each "army card" worth of figures if you scroll down long enough. But I agree, more pictures on the front panel would be good.

No single person has made more content about how to crowdfund board games successfully than Jamey Stegmaier (designer/publisher of Scythe, Viticulture, Charterstone, Euphoria, Tapestry).

His compendium page of all his lessons and insights from his many Kickstarters can be found here.
https://stonemaiergames.com/kickstarter/

And you may be thinking, surely the time to read lessons about how to run a successful board game crowdfunding campaign is not during the campaign.

Well, yes. It may be a little late to read Jamey's "45 Kickstarter Lessons to Read Before You Launch".

But he does have a blog post called "The Top 10 Ways to Address the Mid-Campaign Slump". Some ideas may not apply due to constraints, but there may be opportunities that were overlooked. We know y'all are workin' hard, and we appreciate it!
That is a great resource - I found the point on BGG advertising interesting. $700 bucks to be on the front page!

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Front page of BGG would certainly be a boon.

I love and greatly appreciate the updates to the campaign page. It looks much nicer and much more akin to industry standard crowdfunding pages now. That said, I gravely fear it's too little, too late.

Like Superheroes and Comics?

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

As others have said, this is much better. I still maintain that painted versions of the figures somewhere on the page would help a lot. At this point, it's clear enough that the figures come unpainted that they could post painted pictures SOMEWHERE and not confuse people.

There are multiple benefits to doing this. First, they can show off the official color scheme. Second, we'll be able to see way more detail on the miniatures. And finally, they could slow drip releasing them to give people something to look for.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Three backers and you already recoup that $700 for BGG front page. Surely a good post there would garner more than 3 backers.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

That article was written in 2014. I would guess the price has gone up quite a bit since then.

That said, I hope they do it before the campaign ends.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Does the “should trend” estimate on the op of this thread still accurately define the situation?
