Reviews of the 2015 Gaming Calendar:

“Scott King is probably the best board game photographer around…. Every once and awhile you can catch a glimpse of [his] other calendar on my wall.”
- Tom Vasel (The Dice Tower)

 

"I was a little bit hesitant because when I talked to Jen about if she wanted a gamer calendar she was kinda like ‘What, really? That’s kind of geeky and who needs a calendar anymore?’ …I went ahead and got it anyway and I gotta say that surprisingly Jen thought it was just as cool as I do and now we have to find a place to hang it because its so pretty..."
- Richard Ham (Rahdo Runs Through)

 

“A board game themed calendar is the ultimate complimentary component for your gaming collection…”
- Chaz Marler (Pair of Dice Paradise)

Risks and challenges

No matter how well you plan, something always goes wrong. That's the nature of things when you are working with printers and shipping products. Sometimes there are small hiccups and sometimes there are big disasters. Luckily, this isn't my first Kickstarter project, so I have an idea about what I'm getting into. No matter what situations may or may not arise over the next few months, I'll do my best to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Note: All photos appearing on Kickstarter are not final and may be reprocessed, cropped, or re-shot to make sure I can get the best resolution when printing.
