First off, thank you so much for backing 5 to Close! Unfortunately, we didn't reach the goal. This means that your pledge money was not charged (you'll get it back) but sadly I won't have enough money to mass print the card game to send to you.
Stay tuned, I've got some other Kickstarter projects in the works that may be of interest to you.
A couple of quick thank yous to those who tried to help this project fund successfully:
Languini - langguini.com this is another word game that finished on Kickstarter successfully a few weeks ago. It is too late to back their project here, but you can check out their website and will be able to order copies of their game sometime after April. If you haven't seen their game you should check it out...it has a lot of similarities to 5 to Close that you'll enjoy.
Funding the Dream - http://kck.st/zOsDZh this is a project that helps teach Kickstarter projects suceed! Richard Bliss has a podcast that gives great tips and insight into how to make a successful Kickstarter campaign. The project has 5 days left and is currently 75% funded. Check it out!
Thanks you again so much for your support.
Mark - 5 to Close
Hello backers! Well, we're approaching 5% funded and starting to pick up some steam. I was interviewed last night for a podcast that will feature on www.thegamewhisperer.com this coming Monday. That should help get a nice jump start for 5 to Close. We have created a Twitter account that will hopefully get some additional backer attention. Please follow us on Twitter (5toclose) and help spread the word (with retweets about the project) so we can get this game successfully funded. Thank you!
