Help fund our future merchandise and get some gamer gear in the process! Alaskan Gamers Unite!

About this project

My name is Cameron and I created 907 Gamers in Nov 2013. I wanted to create a free to join community of Alaskan Gamers. 

It all started with registering the domain name www.907gamers.com. A few of my gamer friends and I started inviting our gamer friends to a Facebook group. This group exploded in size. We had no idea how many gamers there are in Alaska! I'm writing this article on 4/04/2014 and we are currently at... 1041 members. We've expanded the group beyond Facebook into different networks. We have a Steam Group, Teamspeak Server, YouTube channel and Twitch.tv Channel. We continue to grow in size daily and the time has come to produce our own gamer gear.

We want to build up the community of gamers and people interested in gaming here in Alaska. This a platform for doing that. A central hub where gamers in Alaska can communicate and share ideas.

This project will allow us to get our members shirts and if we surpass our goal to even start funding our next merchandise project. If we meet our financial goal then we break even and provide shirts for our members at no cost.

If we surpass our goal, the rest of the donations spill over into creating more 907 Gamers gear such as hoodies, stickers, magnets, mouse pads, etc!

This is the beginning step towards growing into something bigger. If 907 Gamers had a budget and had funding beyond my own wallet, I think it could do big things. It's a dream of mine to eventually host the largest LAN the state of Alaska has ever seen.

Funding Goal Met... $50 Hoodie Tier unlocked.

125% Funded... $65 T-Shirt + Hoodie Combo Tier unlocked.

200% Funded... Two (2) Free 907 Gamers Stickers included with order. Example below:

300% Funded.. Zip-up Hoodies option unlocked. Logo on back. Username on front for $100 or higher tiers.

400% Funded.. 907 Gamers Kickstarter Supporter - Special Edition Sticker and Magnet for all $25 tier supports and higher. Example below.

500% Funded.. 10% Discount on all future purchases through the 907 Gamers E-store for all VIP members.

600% Funded.. Beer Koozies added to God-Like Tiers as a free bonus.

700% Funded.. Custom Dog tags being included on all $65 orders and higher.

800% Funded.. Zerg Meet-up upgraded to LAN meet up. Shirts will be available to pick up at another LAN event.

900% Funded.. VIP members get 1 hour earlybird special entry to LAN meet up. Get your seat before anyone else arrives.

1000% Funded.. God-like pledges get commemorative plaques.

If you want to donate more than $300, we'll work with you to create a new custom funding pledge goal.

907 Gamers and this Kickstarter would not be possible without the amazing members and the hard working administrative team behind the scenes. A huge thank you goes out to all those who make this the best gaming community in Alaska. 

Thank you to one of our members, Rusty Musick for providing the square stickers at no cost to add to this Kickstarter. Also, thanks go out to Sam Peters for the Kickstarter Supporter Special Edition stickers and magnets. You guys rock!

Risks and challenges

We have to make our goal to make this financially feasible. Any excess funds will spill over into our next project which will start June 1st. We plan to start another Kickstarter to fund different merchandise such as hoodies and vehicle stickers.

  • Black is the only shirt color available at this time since the logo has parts that are black and uses the material of the shirt as a color.

  • There will be several ways to pick up your shirt after this Kickstarter is completed.

    1. Meet at the designated time and place to pick up a shirt. I thought it might work well if we all met for a Zerg and then I gave shirts out at that point.

    2. Shipping is available anywhere in the US but costs a bit extra.

    3. I can always hold it for you until you are able to meet with me in person at another time if you cannot make it to the Zerg.

  • I've chosen a store here in Anchorage called Shirts Up. It's a little more expensive to go local but I think after seeing the work Shirts Up has done that it will be best option and I feel good having an Alaskan group help support an Alaskan business. If you guys want to check out the site for the company making these shirts head on over to the link below. Here is a link to their portfolio. They do amazing work.
