What was the best Kickstarter which you have backed?

Personal logo Saber6 Supporting Member of TMP Fezian24 Jun 2015 8:19 p.m. PST

Roll20 and Reaper Bones

Dwarves Forge, esp given the size, was run exceptionally well.

Ooh, that's a hard question. Worst one is easy, but there have been so many good ones.

All of the Impact Miniatures Chibi projects have been great. I'll give my Best vote to their first one:
Chibi Dungeon Adventurers

Very Honourable Mention to:
Infinite Crypt: Modular Terrain for Underworld Architects.
Brand new company managed a successful campaign to purchase their first 2 laser cutters, get them up and operational in a new facility, and shipped on time!!!
Infinite Crypt: Modular Terrain for Underworld Architects

Honourable Mention to:
Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King.
Shipped a bit late, but I thoroughly expect that for any project manufacturing in China. Great value, great game, the minis are even cuter in real life than photography of pre-production models appeared on screen.

My vote is for Bones II.

53Punisher24 Jun 2015 8:51 p.m. PST

Reaper Bones and Dwarven Forge.

galvinm24 Jun 2015 8:57 p.m. PST

I would have to go with Conan. It's the only one I have backed.

Critical Mass Games, pretty much on time and good product.

Cyrus the Great24 Jun 2015 10:37 p.m. PST

A lot of good ones, but these two really stand out; Impact Miniatures Chibi and Egyptian Miniatures.

Goober25 Jun 2015 1:50 a.m. PST

Critical Mass Games was good.

Both Oathsworn kickstarters that I backed were also really good. The first one asked for suggestions on minis and two of the suggestions I made (blacksmith and miner) made it into the final production run.

I also had a fine experience wit CMON for Sedition Wars, although I know others didn't.

The first Games and Gears kickstarter for their brushes went well, but the current one for the terrain boards is a farce.

Ssendam25 Jun 2015 3:27 a.m. PST

Lots of good ones …

But my vote goes to 'Shadows of Esteren' which is an RPG Game release in French and English and with a low magic/Celtic theme.

Out of everything I've backed it feels the crowd of people running it are focused on producing the best product ever and so far it has been stunning. It's kind of everything I want KS to be … these guys/gals need the KS funding to make the project happen and they want it be perfect … and it really shows.

Notable mentions to Zombicide, controversial maybe but I love it and Reaper Bones II.

blacksmith25 Jun 2015 4:14 a.m. PST

Zombicide and sequels

FreemanL25 Jun 2015 4:51 a.m. PST

Dark Sword for me. On time, great value and fantastic figures.

Ivan DBA25 Jun 2015 6:04 a.m. PST

Infinite Crypt. Awesome product, and it actually delivered on time, even though it was a true kickstarter in the sense that it was a new startup company.

Wildman25 Jun 2015 6:18 a.m. PST

Both Reaper Bones, Dreamforge Games and Dark Fable Egyptians
were all good for me. Mike Burns of Dark Fable had good
communication through the whole process. He is very enthusiastic about his miniatures and I liked that.

Patrick Sexton Supporting Member of TMP25 Jun 2015 10:05 a.m. PST

Critical Mass for one.

Huscarle25 Jun 2015 10:47 a.m. PST

Lots of good ones, but the best for getting the goodies out on time (or even before schedule) & great updates were:-
Best KS – Dark Sword
Best Indiegogo – Dark Fable Egyptians I-IV

RavenscraftCybernetics25 Jun 2015 11:25 a.m. PST

Tiny Epic Galaxies

Xintao25 Jun 2015 11:32 a.m. PST

Reaper and Dwarven Forge.

Feet up now25 Jun 2015 3:48 p.m. PST

Reaper bones, Chibi adventurers, myth,wrath of kings, Blackwater gulch are all awesome and were fantastic to follow and unbox.
Personal favourite is the SodaPop forgotten king because the family love it too much.

Least favs are both Mantic , Mars Attacks got the game but items missing .
Dreadball extreme, I have the extra figures But no base game still!.
All enquiries met with a what now seems like a token confirmation and then…………….

Wonder what will happen with the dungeon saga one ,

Personal logo Rogzombie Supporting Member of TMP Fezian27 Jun 2015 2:24 p.m. PST

Any of the Dwarven Forge, they have a great product, make the KS fun and are very good at satisfying customers.

Also love
