So you can make a Red Dragon Cat, and a Blue Dragon Cat, and a Green Dragon Cat...

Wouldn't that be more like Siamese, Persian & Tabby. 

 

What?!  No Maine Coon?

 

We need a Maine Coon cat-dragon...

True enough, and don't get me wrong - this Kickstarter has been a tremendous success since the first minutes of Day 1 (the minimum funding goal was reached in 2 minutes in the midst of the Kickstarter platform being staggered under the influx of backers throwing money at the Kickstarter's very beginning - that's hardly a failure by any sane definition!)

 

But, this Kickstarter is definitely not going to hit the more optimistic projections for it, and a lot of the dollar-amount per backer has seemed a bit weaker than I'd have thought it would be for a Kickstarter with so much great stuff in it....

 

 

 

I think part of the problem was the overly fragmented expansions. It took weeks to see the Greek expansion finished for example.

 

I also feel there's a hard limit on what people are willing to spend and reaper has slightly increased prices from past KS (e.g. core set is $120 instead of $100). Despite there being all this great stuff, I think people are getting less for their dollar. Not to say their KS aren't a great value, because they are, but I for example can't justify spending more than $300 on this so I have to make some tough decisions.

I tend to be an optimist, but I recognize that my $4M high prediction is pretty unlikely (but not impossible!).  I'm pretty confident we'll blow past Bones 1 though, and yes - breaking every record for a prior Bones KS is no failure by any measure!

 

As for the $/backer, it's getting there, and it's been like this for all of them:

I think that the per backer pledge is a function of so many new backers.

if your not used to spending a few hundred dollars now for a product in 1.5 years 

so they pledge conservatively

This is an easy buy.  Multiples.  I might get 3 sets, in the end.

 

 

Yep, this one is definitely saying "Buy Me in Multiples!!"

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Unfortunately, all rewards are physical/US Only right now.
      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
