The Backer verdict on our Kickstarter project is here

Hello Contaminated Companions!

I think it is really important for backers to be able to 'pass judgement' and give feedback on Kickstarter projects. So a few weeks ago - we asked for your opinion on the Plague Inc: The Board Game Kickstarter campaign. Now the results are in!

*drumroll*
*drumroll*

 Almost a thousand people gave their verdict and the results were overwhelmingly positive (I'm so proud of this although it did make it hard to make interesting graphs :P ) . Some of the highlights were:

  • 99% of backers are pleased that they backed Plague Inc: The Board Game
  • 99% of backers thought our communication during the Kickstarter campaign was ‘good’ or ‘really good’ 
  • 99% of backers would back a Kickstarter by us again

Check out our infectious infographic for more info (!) and stats!

Make sure you look at this properly - it took a long time to make :P

Thanks you everyone who took part! Regardless of if you did or not, please continue to let me know how you’re getting on with your game and recommend it to your friends!

Stay healthy

 P.S. As always - please consider rating the game over at Board Game Geek here. Online reviews are incredibly important for the long term success of the game. I want to make expansion packs in the future and can't do it without you!

      @charles-etienne jamme - yes hopefully :)

      @Ted Govostis - re card size - as you said, I wanted it to fit on a reasonable table in the pub :) Re continent distribution - that sounds like a good rule variant. I quite like people not knowing what the continents will look like from a replayability point of view though.

      @Blondebunbun Good point - you are correct - hopefully the numbers are pretty representative though - didn't see much variance over the time the survey was up. Almost 1000 people replied to the survey

      Re statistics on image it is not "X % of backers" but "x% of backers who replied to survey". Out of interest what was the response rate?

      Not a criticism about game, more a dislike for misleading / factually incorrect numbers.

      Re the survey results it is not " 99% of backers" it is

      Suggestions for expansions: Multi-climate countries. Numerically balancing continents at set up. Instead of a random selection of country cards, make specific cards removed based on player count to ensure a good distribution across all continents.

      I've played twice so far. Definitely like how you have distilled the various aspects of the app version into relatively simple stats. Both plays have been 3 player, looking forward to a 5 player game. I like that it is a relatively rules lite game, yet still very strategic. I wish you had had more card real estate to make the flavor text bigger, but on the other hand I like that in this day and age of grandiose presentation, you kept the form factor small enough to play on the average pub table.

      I think I was on holiday when that survey was released, but I absolutely love the game and I have played it more than 11 times.

      Looked it over closely, just like the fine print on the Hypothermia Trait Card.... ;)

      Well done, this one has been very well deserved.

      Do you foresee to bring the other strains next to bacteria and virus, like in the original game?

      Grats guys! You deserve the good reviews.

      Can't wait to hear more about expansions!
