“Well, we’re on our way.” – FDR upon learning that American troops had set sail for the invasion of North Africa
So here we are. After months of feverish activity, lots of late nights, and gallons of leaded coffee, our Kickstarter campaign for Specimen is now up and running. I would like to say that I’m relieved, but that just ain’t true. To paraphrase the tag line for Specimen, “When the Kickstarter starts, the terror begins.”
At least I had some semblance of control while we were preparing everything. Now, it’s up to you guys. Oh sure, Joe and I will be furiously tweeting, blogging, and posting on Facebook, basically doing everything we can to get people interested. But really, a board game like Specimen will either appeal to you or it won’t.
So, now begins 30 days of prodding, poking, and cajoling to everyone and anyone I can find to support this project.
That being said, visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/toxicbag/specimen-board-game to donate to the kickstarter.
Please, take a minute to check out the rewards we have for pledging at different levels. And if you think the project is as cool as we think it is, please consider pledging a few bucks. You can be part of the Specimen Community and help send this great, fun game out into the world!
Every little bit helps, and Joe and I will be very grateful.
Finally, I can’t express enough how proud I am of all the hard work and contributions I’ve gotten from everyone involved with Specimen. You guys listened to the crazy ramblings of wide eyed, obviously mentally impaired or over-medicated bald guy and somehow turned them into a really cool, slick looking game. And for that, I will be eternally grateful, whatever Specimen’s end.
YOU GUYS ROCK!
And so far in the first day, we’ve raised over one thousand dollars!
Well, we’re on our way!
Now, if we can just raise a million bucks…
‘Course, what do I know?
