Greetings, victims…  

In movie-making, the climax is the final resolution of the story. But you know that.  

Here we are, two days to go. I’d call that the climax of the Kickstarter campaign. Thanks so much for backing and taking the time to read my ramblings.  


Given that the game book is going to be around 100 pages, I’ve decided to add a hardcover option. When you get your rewards, you’ll be able to purchase a softcover OR hardcover book at cost. The softcover will still cost around $4 plus shipping (USD). The hardcover will cost around $10 plus shipping (USD).  

Some folks like a book that’ll hold up a little better. Plus, hardcovers stay open to pages when laid on a table a bit better. So it seems only appropriate that hardcover be an option.  

I’ll ask which type of book cover you prefer to purchase in the upcoming backer survey. Of course, you don’t have to get a physical book. If you like PDFs, you’ll be good to go.

Final 48 Hours  

Here we go, folks, the final push! Some of the people who have been following the project will likely jump on board in the final two days. But that doesn’t mean I can’t use your help.  

Please do us all a favor and share the game around. Email a few friends you think would like the game. Share on your social media. Whatever you can do to help Die Laughing do well helps put the game in more peoples’ hands, which grows NerdBurger Games, which helps us make more games.

Backer Count Goal #3 – Alternate Rules - 264 Backers - UNLOCKED  

I’ll add alternate rules to the game to liven things up.  

Backer Survey  

I will be sending out a backer survey VERY shortly after the Kickstarter ends. I’ll be asking the following (among other things):  

  • What name you want in the thank you credit
  • Whether you want a discount link for softcover or hardcover  

The deadline for responding to the survey will be midnight Eastern on the evening of Sunday, Dec. 9.  

This is a HARD deadline. If you don’t respond by then, I’ll use your Kickstarter username as your thank you credit name and assume you want a discount code for a softcover book.  

The final rewards are going to turn over very quickly. Hit that deadline, folks!  


Sometimes you’re killed by a masked killer. Sometimes you’re killed by a reanimated melty bug blob thing. It’s all just dumb luck.  

One final push and let’s wrap this thing up!  

Game on,
