Everything I have Kickstarted

A little over a month ago I wrote a summary of all of the games I had contributed to on Kickstarter. One of my friends was curious about all of the non-gaming related things I kickstarted as well, so I'm doing a complete listing now of everything I've given money to on Kickstarter. These projects are listed in the same order that they display on my Kickstarter profile page.

Because I've funded so many Kickstarters (59 as of this writing), the little color wheel on my Kickstarter page was almost full but not quite. I decided to contribute a single dollar to a few Kickstarters just to fill in the wheel because I am a huge dork and I had $6 to burn. Those are denoted below simply with green words saying "$1 recipient"



So here's the format:
  • Name of the project is a link to the project but these words are a link to my KS profile: Estimated Delivery: May 2013, brief description of project and whether or not it was delivered on time

  • Torchbearer: Estimated Delivery: September 2013, Burning Wheel + OSR game, also just started
  • TARDIS Eruditorum: Estimated Delivery: November 2013, essays about Doctor Who, as of this writing he's a week from finishing but I expect this to be late because he hit a few stretch goals that he made up after starting the project

  • The Doom That Came to Fiddle Creak: Estimated Delivery: October 2013, a Lovecraft marionette play, $1 recipient
