      @Bill, LOL. But obviously this ain't bothering "Silent Bob"...clicking on his profile he hasn't logged into KS since his last update 1/4/14. And I assume he won't check in again until another "apology" in, what? 2015?

      Creator Brian DiMarco on November 17

      @Peter: Well I can see one explanation why he last logged on in August.
      He (as did I) backed Colossal Cave and the Backer Email (address verification) went out just before he last logged into KS. So...consider this scenario: He logged onto KS to make sure he got his address info in for his reward for Colossal Cave...all the while ignoring his own backers. Isn't it ironic?

      Am I just cynical? Well, if I'm incorrect, prove me wrong Silent Bob...err...Matthew.

      ...And someone something somewhere accessed the project creator's KS account again on 8/14. Maybe to celebrate the 16th month since funding...and the 13th month since any update.
      As an FYI to backers, the PnP file links from "Update #16: It's Still June Somewhere, Right?" still work, so if you're looking to get something tangible out of this, I'd advise downloading them before they go away, too.

    15. Ks_profile_pic.small

      Creator Jason Fordham on August 2, 2013

      So bizarre.

      Matthew fulfilled my personal POD order last year with an amazing level of good communication, over-shipping copies in the tens and twenties at HIS expense (not) mine to ensure dents/damages were accommodated for, and we're talking 200+ quality POD game copies.

      I still wonder if it's mental health issues? Medical?

      Although using eBay and/or logging in here monthly is Shady to say the least.

      Creator Bill Grant III on July 31, 2013

      Good news for those in on Doom, Cryptozoic picked it up and will be sending games to all backers. Sounds like it might not be fulfilled entirely (I assume stretches rewards and such) but this is better than nothing. As for Matt it doesn't look like anything will save him. (I honestly don't understand why he doesn't just come clean about it. I would have much more respect for someone who would do that.)

    17. Img_1536.small

      Creator Erich Becker on July 31, 2013

      Yeah I was in for 75 bucks on doom (what a fitting name!), a lot more than my $15 bucks on here. These scams seem to be destroying people's faith in crowd funding as an alternative. What a shame.

      The disappearance still seems a little odd, unless I'm reading this wrong, he last logged onto KS Apr. 21, 2013. So someone's accessing his account...

      Creator Jason Fordham on May 2, 2013

      Mike, I'm in contact with the artist for this project, and neither he nor I have the SLIGHTEST idea what happened to Matthew.

      I've even contacted a secondary PayPal address on his account (he did my POD for a game of mine). He's literally disappearred.

      We actually fear for him,

      I did a little research for his hometown; also to no avail.

(the other contact info from his then-website, and to the mrwgames email). I have not received any reply, it's been few months. He did not reply even to just a question about the rules of the game (can you protect against someone taking a pot from your hand with the related reaction card if whole hand is exchanged for example).

      Creator Brian DiMarco on March 26, 2013

      I still stop by here and read for updates, probably fool's hope at this point that something will change. It's all quite odd, he was a relatively engaged BGG poster, last posted here 8/24/12 that shipping was coming, and then nada. I see on BGG the artist is still active there, not that he's mixed up with this guy's mess, but might know something.

      FOR ANYONE STILL READING THIS... I SENT MATTHEW THE FOLLOWING EMAIL TODAY:

      Dear Mr Rodgers,

      I am writing this as a last ditch effort to get you to fulfill your obligation to your backers. I have found out from Kickstarter that you agreed when using their site to deliver on your promise to your backers or provided refunds, if you could not or would not deliver.

      I intend to organize the other 98 backers, besides myself and file a lawsuit against you if refunds are not sent to all of your supporters by April 30. Please do not continue to ignore us, or we will be forced to resolve this issue in court.

      Thank you for your attention to this,

      Kelley Callery

    39. _mg_0029.small

      Creator Kelley Callery on March 25, 2013

      Just So Everyone Knows... Per the terms of service:
      - Kickstarter does not offer refunds. A Project Creator is not required to grant a Backer’s request for a refund unless the Project Creator is unable or unwilling to fulfill the reward.
      - Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. So if he can't or won't make the game, he is on the hook for refunds. He has violated Kickstarter terms and conditions, and have left backers holding the bag."

      I don't know... but I think we should all request a refund - and given the nature of how this has been handled by Matthew we should even look into to filing a lawsuit. It's clear he has just taken the money and run... this whole thing has been nothing but lies. No pics, no updates, no anything...

      I have reported this project to Kickstarter. I suggest all backers do the same.

      ***Possible Rip Off Scam*** This project was funded last year. His last update/communication was almost eight (8) months ago. I sent a message to this project last week. I has been over a week and I have not heard back from them.
      I understand that life can get busy. However, I feel the project has a responsibility to keep its backers informed, in a timely manner. No updates/contact/information in over eight (8) months is unacceptable.
      Please look into this matter and let me know what you find out.
      If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

      Thank you,
      Victor

      I think we can safely say at this point Matthew is deliberately keeping us in the dark and has no intention of fulfilling his reward obligations he agreed to when starting this KS. From his other accounts I see he is a family man. I hope he doesn't teach his kids to swindle others out of their money.

      And if I'm wrong about all of this I'll issue a full apology if Matthew ever has the decency to address us again and clear the air.

      Creator GrandSlambert on February 5, 2013

      I am quite positive that Matthew Rodgers is not going to ship the games. I am just going to say it, he has officially swindled me, and I will be contacting Amazon.com who handles the payments of this situation. I will also be contacting officials in Augusta, GA to try and get to the bottom of this. Taking money and not delivering product is illegal.

      If you want to get a little more annoyed, you can no longer search for "Who's For Dinner" and find this page on the Kickstarter site. At least I can't. I know Kickstarter hides failed projects from google but usually successful ones (e.g. Search for "Ramos Clock", which funded before this one) are still findable.

      Is it a conspiracy or a coincidence? ;-)
