First, it's a witty little pun that my wife thought to use as the channels name, ‘Two can’ sounds just like ‘Toucan’! However, from that initial pun spawned a YouTube channel dedicated to providing high quality videos about tabletop games. With the little twist of talking about if the games work for 2 players, or can be made to work for 2.
There are a few principles I keep in mind with everything I am doing here on the channel:
- Be honest and open with everything I am doing with the channel. Say when things are paid for, how much things cost or how the channel is performing etc… Diaries of a Board Game YouTuber for example provides others with the information I struggled to find when I started out.
- Be continually improving quality and productivity. In the past year that has meant big investments on new equipment to improve the backdrop, sound, lighting and video quality.
- Help the hobby as a whole grow. Such as producing the collaborative shows Review Wars and Meeple Box to help other content creators reach more people and to help people reach them.
- Be informative. I don’t just want to tell you what you should be playing or buying, I want to give you the information to make the decision with sound analysis of games pros and cons in Reviews, detailed looks at how to play the games or clear demonstrations of the games with Play throughs.
I work full time on the channel bringing you 400+ videos to date on a wide variety of games and lots of different videos to provide something for everyone. I have been extremely lucky to have my wife supporting me (both financially and emotionally), but it’s your donations that will allow me to keep producing the content you love!
So, what do you get?
If season 2 funds, you will get another full year of great content to enjoy, but this goal doesn’t cover all the channels costs. So in my principle of being open and honest here is the season 2 budget along with the calculations for the kickstarters funding goal. Based on this if we pass the funding goal you will also have these stretch goals to look forward to!
In addition to all this, depending on how much you donate you can also claim a fantastic reward!
Risks and challenges
I have successfully run the channel for the past 15 months. In that time I have had to deal with illness, equipment faults and all sorts of other unforeseen events, but the show must go on and so does the channel. There might be some delays but I will always find a way to keep it going with the minimal disruption possible.
As for delivering rewards, although this is my first kickstarter I am aware that delays might occur, but I will be sure to keep you updated if that is the case. To minimise the risk the majority of items for the promo tiers are already here and it will just be a case of sending them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
