Please be aware that this project is the only way to get these two games. They will not be going into distribution.

I know that the gaming community is amazing and over the course of my 18 years in it I have never ceased to be amazed at the compassion and the magic that the tabletop gaming community can create. I’m gonna be brutally honest with you, I really need some of that magic now. So here’s the reality and state of Crash Games right now. We tried to grow and it didn’t work out. I said that we wouldn’t be on Kickstarter again and here I am. What gives? This is where I started with a dream and a passion for gaming and this is where I may end. I wouldn’t be back here if I didn’t need your help and believe me I need your help in the worst of ways. Crash Games has some pretty big bills for some games we made and I without Kickstarter I am not able to pay them. 

I have some pretty big outstanding commitments to my manufacturer and my game designers. I have always put others before myself and this situation is no different. I need to pay for the games that I ordered and I need my designers to be made whole for trusting me with their games. I have personally spent the last six years pouring my blood, sweat and tears into this company and I know that so many of you have joined me in this journey and I could have never done it without you. I need you to join me now. 

Crash Games needs this project to succeed if we’re going to continue in any way. With this campaign we are simply looking to pay the bill for the games, their shipping costs and to put some money in the two game designers pockets; that’s it. Since our purpose is to just break even the Reward Tiers are going to be to just cover our costs, no profit built in at all. Moving forward we would like to at least put one final project forward, a game called Finca (oh man I love Finca), which cannot and will not happen unless this project succeeds. 

The beauty of this particular project is that the games have already been manufactured and they are here in the United States already. I will literally be packing the boxes myself and be sending them out very shortly after the campaign ends. 

I’m here to answer any questions that I can and I want to thank you so much for considering to help save Crash Games.

Risks and challenges

Thankfully I have spent some time on Kickstarter and know how to put Crash Games in the best possible position. Since they games have already been manufactured and are ready to be shipped out the moment the campaign ends there is little to no risk on that front. I have fulfillment setup and in place so that when the project ends the fulfillment will almost immediately begin.
