We have reached the end of our campaign and did not meet our goal.  We appreciate all of your support and are happy to have connected with so many fans of Battle Chess.  Many of you have made suggestions throughout this campaign and we have listened.  We will be taking some time to analyze the situation and to decide the fate of Battle Chess.   

As soon as a decision has been made we will let everyone know.

      I would suggest next time around guys, spend some money on marketing (Specifically someone who focuses on social media, like reddit etc) . There should have been a lot of hype around it (the secret sauce of any successful kickstarter) but I never heard about it outside of , well, here.

      Sorry this didn't make it! You guys really have something great here -- I just think it's a matter of the right timing and a better campaign. Please keep us all posted.

      Damn, I was looking forward to my boxed collector's edition! Please, give this another shot!

      Definitely give this a second go - quite a few KS projects re-launch and get funded the second (or even third) time around: KS is not a one-shot deal.

      BUT I do agree about the promotion - as William Crawford did, I only spotted this because I was trawling the KS projects whilst waiting for other things to finish.

      I certainly hope that you do give it another go - and when you do, don't forget to post about your re-launch (wherever/however you do it) as an update to this project page, so that the people who backed you this time get emailed about it.

      I've written about this before and I'll write it again:

      Don't give up! Try again!

      I've seen other campaigns not reach their goals, and they aren't worried at all. They'll just dust themselves off, learn from the experience, and try again.

      Perhaps connecting with some other Battle Chess people or taking other actions will help? Maybe it just needed getting the word out some more?! Who knows?

      But it's worth a second chance, and I believe in Battle Chess!

      I'm sad to see it didn't work. But I have to agree with others, I didn't see any promotions or interest in any of the gaming news sites. Not sure if they just didn't report it or they didn't get any notice of it. As has happened before, a mention in places like Penny Arcade and Kotaku can make a project skyrocket in support. Look what happened to Ogre & Zombiecide when Penny Arcade mentioned them.

      This is a bit sad :( I hope you guys put out something, even if its a bit less ambitious. Discussing this with chess buddies we where all pretty stoked to see this come back.

      Sad to see this fail, I'd attribute this to Kickstarter fatigue and that Battlechess somehow didn't have it's own hardcore crowd carrying it.

    9. William C Crawford on

      I have to say, I didn't see much promotion. I found the project by looking through all the Kickstarter projects that were running, and never heard of it anywhere else.

      Hi Guys, sorry to hear you didn't manage to get funded. Good luck on your future plans!

      I'm sorry you guys didn't meet your goals. However, the fact that you received so few pledges indicates that you're either lacking in promotion, appeal, or demand.
