Looking back at Week #1
You Love Us, You Really Love Us!
Thank you to all for your wonderful support. We can't express how bewildered we are by the success we've had so far. So much has happened already! One week in and we are already at €5,446, a whooping 181% of our original goal. It's hard to believe that in such a short time we've managed to surpass our original campaign, and are still continuing to climb.
This also means we've blasted through and unlocked our first two Stretch Goals! Say hello to the Whisking and the Spirit of the Vengeful Liver. That brings BARPIG up to 10 characters, and an additional exclusive item for our Kickstarter backers only. We're excited to be sharing these special extras with you, and love to hear what you guys think of the new cards.
As for our next stretch goal at €6000, to show you guys how grateful we are we've decided to up the ante with a little something extra. Not only will all backers get a high resolution double-sided Print and Play copy of BARPIG, including a blank character template for you to make your own character (And please feel free to share your creations with us!). You'll also be getting an additional card with your pack of BARPIG; The Tips, Tricks, and Drinking Rules card; Detailing our drinking rules and some tips, tricks, and rules variations for game play.
We've been busy lining up even more Stretch Goal rewards for you guys, and are really excited with the next ones we have in store. So keep on sharing and keep those pledges coming in!
And we're not just killing it with pledges either. We've even already managed to hit one of our first social stretch goals which means it's time for our first Share For a Dare. Oh Boy! Here's how the game is going to go down:
As of today, we've launched a poll giving you a choice of 3 dares related to a character card and a special Amsterdam location. They are:
- Practicing our Pourceror skills with a game of Imitation at the petting zoo in the Amsterdam Bos.
- Proving our worth with a Whisking dance-off in Dam Square.
- Racing to the finish with the Drrmonk in Vondelpark.
On July 25th (Click to see the Facebook event) we will then act out the top dare and post it up on our social media for your enjoyment. If you would like to be involved in this event, or would simply like to see us do the dare live and are in or near the Amsterdam area then please send us a message and we'll make arrangements.
We're also continuously busy with Demos and Livestreams on our events calendar. If you missed our last Livestream with the Board Game Brothers, you can still watch the replay on our Youtube channel. Today we're going to be demo-ing in the Subcultures gaming shop in Utrecht, and our next Livestream will be with Dumee Gamer next Monday. As always, all our events listings can be found on our Facebook page.
Thank you all so much for your tremendous support. Like we said, we've got more awesome stretch goals coming as a thank you when we can, so please keep on pledging and sharing!
