It's been a while since I did an overview post, so it's probably time.
Here's where I am on Kickstarter:
Riders: A Game About Cheating Doomsday - I received the PDF in July. The original delivery target was May. I call that "on time," honestly. And I've barely started reading it, but I'm really enjoying it. This, by the way, is the second project from Caias that I've backed. Both of them are going to be done before Far West.
Feng Shui (2nd Edition): Received print while at GenCon. Dead on time.
Esteren: Occultism: PDF received. Sounds like there are going to be some delays in printing, however. I've been happy with the products received so far (their previous projects), and I'm willing to wait.
Grimtooth's Traps: PDF received.
World Wide Wrestling: Print and PDF both received. I'm very happy with it.
Mouse Guard: Swords & Strongholds: This board game arrived a week or so before GenCon. I like it. It's not crazy amazing, but it's solid. And fun.
Fantaji: PDF received 6/11/15. Some day, I'll read it. The print is about a year late, now, however.
Atlantis Theragraphica - Received in full.
Ryuutama: PDF received. This is the second project of Andy's that I've backed - again: Two projects done before Far West. And yes - the print version of this is late. But I have faith that it's going to be here.
Two Rooms and a Boom - Received. Played. Like. Will have to write more about this one in the not-too-distant future.
Dragon Kings: Received. I haven't read it, yet, though.
Circle of Hands: Received. I spent a few minutes looking at it. I ... I tentatively like it.
A Bit Late
These are things I'm not too worried about, but are six months (or more) past due:
Mobile Frame Zero: Alpha Bandit: We just had an update on this the other day. It looks like print proofs are in the hands of the project creators.
TimeWatch - I like the GUMSHOE system, and I have faith in Pelgrane's ability to complete it.
Starting to Stress
Fae Nightmares: I have the PDF, but one of the project creators is apparently fighting some health issues right now. PDF received: 9/2/14.
Tales From The Floating Vagabond: I used to love this game, which is why I backed. Lee had an extended health scare and spent some time in a coma(!), so the delays are understandable. But I'm still worried (both on Lee's behalf and ... well ... because I want my stuff).
Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine: I'm waiting for my print copy. I received the PDF more than a year ago.
Alas, Vegas: I still have a draft PDF. James Wallis has a reputation for taking his sweet time to put product out, but I'm still getting anxious for this one.
Tunnels & Trolls: Print copies have begun shipping. I just haven't seen mine, yet. Nor have I received any sort of notification.
Stopped Caring / Written Off / Getting Angry
Synnibarr: This project has been a box of crazy. I have my first (of three) PDFs. Nothing in print, yet. This is a project I backed for the LOLs anyhow, so I'm not too concerned because I honestly don't expect to ever receive my product. (Written Off)
The +5 Food of Eating Cookbook: She told us a long time ago that the print version was never happening. And it probably won't. (Written Off)
Far West: This project passed its four year funding anniversary yesterday, and I requested a refund. When my request was rebuffed, I filed a complaint with the Washington State Attorney General's office.
Powerchords: This is almost a year older than Far West, but I'm ... I'm not angry. Probably because Satyros Phil Brucato has never failed to be polite to his backers. He's never failed to treat us with respect. And he's not given us a long string of broken release dates. I do need to ping him to see if we can get a progress report, though.
And that's where my current Kickstarter status is.
I am backing zero open projects right now. Which is weird for me.
... and that's it for Kickstarter posts. Next week: I ... don't know. I have a couple of half-written posts about ready to go.
