Hot off the press! Get your Lizzy Microbadge!
The Lizzy Microbadge is now available on Boardgame Geek! Special thanks to backer Chris Fee aka Manyslayer for designing and submitting the microbadge! And BTW, Chris designed a fantastic Zombie solitaire game called Zed Deck that you can get for free on BGG! I've been playing it lately and it is a lot of fun! Check it out.
I want to give away 10 microbadges free! All you have to do is go here and buy your microbadge, then send me (vanrydergames) a message on BGG and I will transfer the geekgold to cover your purchase! If you don't have enough to buy it first, send me a message and I will advance you the GG. First 10 so act quickly!
As someone who has been on both sides of the Kickstarter "coin" - backer and project owner, I feel like I have a good handle on what makes KS special, especially in the board game genre. One of the things I appreciate most is getting to know the designer and/or publisher and being at the forefront of knowledge sharing for a project. Sort of like if you have ever been to a professional sporting event where you know one of the players, or seen a movie and you know one of the actors, it just makes you that much more interested in the product (whatever it may be) when you know someone who is behind it. I love helping people bring things to life on Kickstarter and I love you guys for helping me bring IIGD to life.
And with that I have some news I'd like to share... No later than Thursday 3/29/2012, my wife Jessica and I will welcome our third child (and third boy) into this world! This is a very exciting time for me and I am very anxious to meet our little one. Things will certainly be busy around our household in the coming weeks!
In the meantime, things are moving forward with the printer. Getting going took a little longer than I expected, but I should have the soft proof this week. Now this being my first time, it is hard to say exactly where this puts us for delivery, but my gut tells me we are a little behind schedule. I don't think it is anything drastic, but delivery may be June instead of May now. We shall see, I will certainly keep you all posted.
Thanks for all of your support! Now go get your Lizzy microbadge!
