Board Game Badger

For the last 3 years, I have studied every tabletop game Kickstarter campaign to launch on the platform. Each week, I highlight 10 new campaigns in a series called Board Game Badger.

Latest Posts

I work with creators around the world to incubate their product from concept to fulfillment. These are just a few consultation services I offer.

Manufacturing

A viable product always starts with reasonable manufacturing quotes.

Campaign Layout

Best practices for campaign layouts are constantly updating. Present the best campaign you can.

Marketing

Crowdfunding requires a crowd. Let’s get your game in front of potential customers in a cost-efficient way.

Shipping and Fulfillment

Established publishers ship product worldwide and save a lot of money in the process. Learn their tricks and gain backers!

A few creators I have helped recently.

Doomsday Robots

Daniel has been involved with the Kickstarter scene long enough to know what has worked and what has flopped. We did a lot of research and planning to put our best foot forward for the Bridges to Nowhere campaign. There were plenty of times, though, where no amount of planning could help us and that’s where Daniel was a godsend. His experience helped us make important decisions, and his professional perspective gave us confidence. Finally, it takes time and access to make connections in the board game industry. We had very few contacts, and Daniel was able to advocate for our game to the right people and got our campaign more attention than we could have on our own. From start to finish, it was a real pleasure working with Daniel, and we could not recommend him more highly.

Success Stories 6: Magic Worlds

When I list a campaign on the Board Game Badger, I reach out to the publisher to ask them a single question: “What are you doing right in this campaign?” Regardless of whether the publisher meets the funding goal, it is important that we realize real people are working very hard to make games for us. I hope to humanize their campaigns a little in this way. Magic Worlds “We all need a distraction from the real world, something that…
