$6,000! and stretch goal 3
Woo! We crossed $6,000 in double time. Elizabeth's hack, May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor, will be available on my (and probably her) website as soon as it's ready for release. Thanks yet again for your support and donations! I'm really excited to invest in making Dog Eat Dog as awesome as conceivably possible.
$7,000 is the next goal, and we have just about 48 hours to get there. Here's my plan: if I make it there, I'll write a lesson plan for using Dog Eat Dog in an educational setting -- whether a classroom, a workshop or an activist meeting. I'll dig in and do some research on the best way to use a game like this to make points about the effects of colonialism and the power of privilege, and distill that knowledge into a clear set of guidelines for you to apply should you wish to instruct somebody about the problems with everything in the world.
Not exciting enough? Okay, I'll also donate twenty-five copies of Dog Eat Dog to schools or organizations of your choice. We'll take some sort of vote among the backers and pick twenty-five recipients who will get the book for free!
That's what I got. 48 hours. Hit it.
