      Has anyone actually called this number and spoken to Ken? I'm curious what he would say.

      Just a heads up, Eric Tenkar has done a great job of following up on Ken's Fraudulent behavior. You can file an FTC complaint here: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted…

      Make sure to have all your info collected before you go through the process. You'll want to have the amount you were defrauded as well as the total amount from Kickstarters ($177,00).

      Next month is the 3 year anniversary of when the project was estimated to be in backer's hands. I think we should do something celebrate the occasion. We could all give Ken a call and wish him a happy anniversary.

      This was my first kickstarter- “Staff Pick”. You’d think the Staff would take more interest when one of their picks goes tits up.

      I think we should *demand*, in no uncertain terms, an update from this guy with another vague promise and a deadline he won't meet. It just isn't the same without having a fake delivery date for nonexistent pencils to look forward to.

    7. Luke on February 2

      Can we get this guy banned from kickstarter? He has never once actually come through with any of his projects.

      Yeah, it certainly would be nice to get our money back from this lifeless project.

    11. Jolly Blackburn on January 10

      Ken Whitman has abandoned this project. He hasn't even logged in in 17 months. The money is gone, gone, gone and so is he. He bought a game store in Kentucky and just wishes people would forget about this kickstarter

      It has been years now. I still want my pencils, but I have moved and don't know how to update my address in your records. I would ask for a refund, but the card I used is no longer active. Help us out here, man. We gave you money. If it isn't going to happen, give it back.

    18. Randall Knight on November 15, 2017

      38,161 dollars in the wind. I thought maybe i missed something- looks like this was a total scam.

      I wonder if I went to the actually address listed on his website, would he refund the $5 I spent on this campaign?

    21. JML on October 11, 2017

      I suspect my dice pencils, carefully crafted by the indigenous people of wherever, have been lost in transit. Surely, they have been sent by now, as this was Ken's promise, wasn't it? Surely, Ken did not outright lie and deceive us, right? Surely he has a conscious and wants to do the right thing by providing the product backers paid to have made and delivered. Surely.

    22. Shirts by Shurts on October 9, 2017

      "Q. Will we actually see a finished project.
      A. Yes."

      Who'd have thought that making a few pencils would be so difficult...

    23. Kathy Rogers on October 8, 2017

      "Be respectful and considerate." Why? No one who can or will do anything about it reads these things. This experience did not scare me away from Kickstarter projects, but it sure did make me more careful about what I back. So, thanks for the expensive lesson, lying scumbag.

      Apparently, "This Edition, first produced in 2008, is designed and produced by Sebastian Bergne Ltd."

      I just bought some black pencils. Ticonderoga 12 pack. So I've got that going for me...

    31. Jolly Blackburn on August 2, 2017

      I think Ken has abandoned these projects completely and won't even bother with any more updates. He's gone, gone, gone.

      OH man I can't wait to see the EPIC lies that come out of this post today. Let's see what BS we get spun today.

      I wish I could sue Ken for this.

    33. JML on August 1, 2017

      How about them pencil dice? There's been enough time to grow the trees, cut them down, have them hand-carved by the indigenous people of wherever and delivered one by one by legless couriers to each backer. Gosh. I'm beginning to think this kickstarter might have been a big sham to just steal people's money with no intent on ever delivering anything.

    34. Adrian Jones on July 26, 2017

      Cheers for the heads up. Noticed he had put up a post regarding a pallet of stuff he is doing cheap. Had to ask if there were any Pencil Dice in there :-)

    35. Jolly Blackburn on July 24, 2017

      Ken bought a game store. He might be too busy for such trivial stuff as pencils. https://www.facebook.com/LittleMonsterGamesandComics/

      A year ago we were complaining about how things were supposed to have been done a year before that and were told we'd have to wait another year. It's July 2017 now, that time that felt so very far away back in 2016, and by which we presumably were to have forgotten all about this.

      Maybe we should lower our expectations a little. Instead of demanding the product, we can demand, and I mean *DEMAND* an update with some vague wording and a meaningless promise of a new delivery date. And we deserve one now.

    40. Jerry Behrendt on July 12, 2017

      Are the pencils at your warehouse yet? They must be arriving pretty soon if you're going to have them delivered in August like you promised a year ago. How about some pictures of the stock?

      Unless of course the whole "August 2017" was a total lie from the beginning.

      @Geoffrey - to be fair it isn't summer until Wednesday so he's got 3 months after that to meet his promised deadline. /s

    45. Jolly Blackburn on June 14, 2017

      Geoffrey latest on Ken is he's been laying down tracks as to why he won't deliver on his promise of fulfillment in August. No surprise there.
