Risks and challenges

While this is the first Kickstarter project for Brookspun Games, I have over 20 years of experience as a consultant helping companies improve their ability to deliver on commitments and satisfy their customers. My success isn't based upon funding this campaign, but rather it's based on my ability to deliver on my commitment and promise to you.

I've intentionally partnered with specialists, vendors, and manufacturers who have a proven track record of delivering successful Kickstarters and providing a positive experience to backers. By surrounding myself with experts, I strive to minimize the risk and potential for challenges for you.

After the campaign, we will create the remaining art, update the graphic design of the rulebook & player aids, and finalize the solo mode. The delivery timeline has multiple contingency points built in, however, it's possible that factors outside of my control may delay my ability to get your game into your hands by the date I've estimated. Please know that my #1 goal is to get a high-quality product and gameplay experience on your table as soon as possible. If anything stands in the way of accomplishing that, I will communicate openly and transparently with you about any issues AND about my plans to resolve them. As a Kickstarter Superbacker, I know what it's like to be on the receiving end and have learned from dozens of projects how to properly treat and communicate with backers (and also what NOT to do).

I look forward to providing you with a positive end-to-end experience whether this is your 1st project backed on Kickstarter, or your 100th. After all... I see this game as one of the many aspects of my own legacy. I want you to remember your experience with this campaign, with this game, and with our team - fondly.
