Reward Reminder & Survey

Comment

Hello Backers!

I hope this update finds you well.

This update is to serve as a reminder to those of you who have not yet claimed your Daytrader reward. When we launched playdaytrader.com in November, we sent out an email with instructions on how to claim your reward. If you have not yet done so, please look into your inbox for the email with the subject line "Your Daytrader Board Game Has Arrived" and follow the steps to receive your game.

If you can't find the email or never received one, please email me at hello@playdaytrader.com and include your first and last name and I'll make sure you get your game.

If you have already received your Daytrader game, we'd love to hear from you as well.

If you would like to participate in a 10 question survey telling us about your experience with Daytrader we'd greatly appreciate your feedback and opinions. By participating in the survey, you will be entered to win a $50 Visa gift card. Please follow the link below to access the short, 2 minute survey:

Once again,  I want to reiterate that I'm abundantly aware that all of the success that Daytrader has had is largely due to your contribution and support. 

Stay connected with us on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter.  Be sure to check out our new animated series, Daytrader 101 on YouTube, which chronicles Daytrader Man, aka Mr. Jimi, as he navigates his very own volatile market. Please continue to share playdaytrader.com with your social networks.

Happy Trading!

Daytrader Is On It's Way!

Hello Backers,

I'm so happy to say that Daytrader has shipped from the manufacturer and is on its way to our California warehouse! As soon as it arrives and goes through processing, about 3 weeks from now, you will receive an email from us with a promo code and instructions on how you can claim your reward on the website.

As I've said in the past, if it weren't for you and your contribution none of this would be possible. Everyone on the Daytrader team thanks you so much for giving us the opportunity to bring this game to life.

Thank you, 

Samir


Update #11

Coming Soon!

Comment

Hello all,

I hope this update finds you all doing well! It's been a while since my last update because we've been hard at work preparing for the official launch.

Daytrader is in the final stages of production and should arrive to the California warehouse by late October. I'm so pleased to say that we are still right on schedule for a November launch and release of the website! Website access will be granted to all backers prior to the public launch as another thank you for allowing me to make this game. Those who are entitled to a free copy (or copies) of the game will receive instructions for ordering the game off the website.  

Also, during this time we've formed an LLC, Lyon Works, which is now the official publisher of Daytrader. Again, this wouldn't be possible without your contribution, so thank you!

At this point, you should have received all rewards other than the game itself. If this isn't the case please let me know and I will ship them out to you as soon as I can. For the few who have already let me know about missing items, these will be shipped in the next week.  If you haven't yet told me about a missing item, let me know. Not to worry if you have changed your address recently, once the site is launched you will be able to add any shipping address you want when claiming your reward.

Don't forget to follow us on twitter, facebook, instagram and sign up for the newsletter at www.playdaytrader.com. I can't wait to get Daytrader out to you!

Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments 

Thanks, 

Samir


Update #10

Daytrader on Indiegogo

Hello Backers!

Due to the inactivity and technical problems of the new site, JUMPSTARTCITY, I will be pulling Daytrader off and I have launched a new campaign on Indiegogo. Indiegogo is an established crowdfunding site much like kickstarter. It's reputable and has been battle tested, so there won't be any technical hiccups. Today is the first day of launch of Daytrader on indiegogo and I want to ask you to help support Daytrader by sharing the project with all your friends, family, co-workers and social networks to get us off the ground. There are facebook and twitter like/share buttons and a short link you can embed or email out as you please. Every little bit helps!

To quickly reiterate, Daytrader is still in a great position from kickstarter, the game is being made. The new funds will be applied to a larger first run size so we can get the game out to everyone who has shown an interest since kickstarter has ended. We are also creating a business around Daytrader to make sure it can be the best possible game and last well after the first run. So please, help us out and share the indiegogo page so it can succeed!

Thanks!

Update #9

Rewards & Jump Start City

1 comment

Hello Backers, 

 I hope you're all doing well! I've recently sent the Thank you cards, Posters & T-shirts rewards. Some of the international backers may not have received them yet, but they're on the way. If you do not receive your reward in the next couple of weeks please let me know and I'll look into it. I'm happy to say that the games are in production and ahead of schedule, we're striving for a September/October launch! 

 Also, I want to fill you in on something new and exciting that has started this past week. Daytrader is featured on the new crowdfunding site, Jump Start City. First and foremost, I want all of you to know that this game will be made! I am only trying to raise more funds due to the high level of attention and demand Daytrader has received since kickstarter has ended. I am extremely grateful for how far Daytrader has gone in such a little amount of time, but due to it's great acceptance I have had to transform the project to a full blown small business. This move is vital to Daytraders overall success. 

 I will not ask or expect any of you to donate any further, but what I will ask of you since you've already supported Daytrader to keep doing so. Jump Start City is set up a little different than other crowdfunding sites, which is also part of the draw for me. It's a lot more social and is set up in 3 tiers. The first tier is a pitch process, I need to obtain 500 pitch votes to move into the next level, which is a 3 week promotion stage. Then, the game goes active and can finally receive pledges. There are some really exciting benefits built into Jump Start City you might want to check out and explore further too. As I said before, this game will be made and all of you will receive your rewards. Your support in the first tier would be such a great help as I strive to reach the 500 votes I need to move into the next level. 

 Please follow the link below and vote YES for Daytrader. Sharing on facebook/twitter would be a great way to help us spread the word as well! http://jumpstartcity.com/events/daytrader-a-financial-board-game As always, if you have any questions at all please email me through Kickstarter. We're getting closer everyday!

 Thanks, Samir
