Special Mission for You: We're halfway there! 250 founding members and counting...
Hello awesome Gameful friends!
25 days to go, and we're halfway to our goal of 500 founding members.
Now we need just 250 more Kickstarter backers to unlock our Secret Mission.
If EVERY SINGLE BACKER (that means you!) can find ONE friend, colleague or Twitter follower to become a new backer, we'll reach our goal!
So that's your special mission: Reach out to the single most gameful person you know and ask them to join you in the Secret HQ: It's just $12 for a lifetime founding membership.
Please accept this special mission to bring on board one more backer in the next 25 days...
... and post a comment if you've successfully lured a new backer into our Gameful secret HQ. We will give you big fieros.
Jane, Kiyash, Matt, Nathan
