one final stretch goal: Tom vs Bruce, on location!
With only 48 hours to go, we have two options: 1) wait for the time limit to run out, or 2) try to think up one more stretch goal. So we've come up with a last minute stretch goal! Inspired by this series of videos from the New York Times in which two dorky white guys say kind of interesting things to each other, Tom and Bruce will do a video entry based on playing a game in person. Most likely a boardgame, but don't think we won't make good on our threat of a shoulder-to-shoulder single-couch BlazBlue Continuum Shift tournament. Basically, we'll commit to using the $1000 for Bruce to actually fly out to Los Angeles, stay at Chez Chick, and make a video entry that takes advantage of us being in the same location.
Does anyone want such a thing? We have no idea. And, frankly, we're just looking for more opportunities to do more different things with Tom vs Bruce. So if that's something that would appeal to you, consider upping your donation, or passing the word along to others. If we don't make it, no sweat. You still get ten new Tom vs Bruces, complete with contributions from three talented, smart, and funny writers. You've all been great and we couldn't be happier with how this has turned out. But if you're collectively willing to help us schlep Bruce Geryk across the country, we can promise you an 11th Tom vs Bruce like you've never seen before.
Finally, here's one last hint about the first new Tom vs Bruce, which we'll be posting shortly after the Kickstarter campaign closes:
