An amazing 388 Backers responded to the survey. Split was 351 Pro on Share / 37 Con on Share (90.5% / 9.5%)
Things are crazy with the Skulk Hollow KS, but in the coming months I'll proceed with providing some copies to BGG and I may make it available on PFG.com (but would need to set up a store first :) .
Expand a great game and help BGG at the same time! Do it!
Sell it. Selling it through BGG is a great idea.
Pencil First supporters aren't really the "Exclusive means EXCLUSIVE FOREVER" crowd.
Make great games, get money from me. Easy business model.
I'm in the "not a fan of exclusives" group. In fact, I often won't back games that have them (or buy a game that I can't get them for).
Thanks for all the feedback, folks. I appreciate it!
Wow, 10,000 copies. Congrats!
You missed an option on the survey: "KS exclusives are bad for the community (and bad for business), so release it broadly."
I'm good with you giving it away. I think it's a great idea to do the free expansion pack on Kickstarter campaigns and giving them away at cons. -Brian
Oh, your survey lets us enter multiple responses -- so it may not be that accurate. ;-)
Great! Let it be distributed. I have never been a fan of game play KS Exclusives. Thank you!
Personally, I'm not a big fan of exclusives that are only ever available for the original backers. I think they devalue the eventual retail release and feed into some of worst tendencies of collectors. Early access is enough of a backer reward for me, and you've done more than right by us on that count.
It's fine for everyone to get it. I'd rather it be easier for everyone including you.
Fine by me. It’s been two years, the exclusiveness has warn off. Let others enjoy getting the promo cards.
I can’t back everything and do love being able to buy promos direct or from BGG. Open the flood gates.
We get the game earlier than others. I have no need to deny others the full game experience because they didn’t back the KS. Conversely, I also don’t want to denied it because I didn’t attend a con. How about you just make it available to everyone.
