    Image in Opening Montage

    At the very beginning of The Game Designers there is an opening montage which highlights a variety of tabletop games via still images. This montage includes general credits for the movie and is played before the movie starts. For this reward tier, you can have your very own still image in the opening montage. Your image will play for about 3-4 seconds and needs to be an image of a board game. It can either be a prototype of a game you're working on or just your favorite game. The image cannot contain any text-based advertising on it and must be approved by the director. We can help guide you with tips and tricks to take the perfect image of your preferred game (or prototype) if you need help. This reward also includes the "Collector's Edition + Gift" or "Collector's Edition - Digital Version" reward tier (whichever you prefer).

    Includes:
    • Image in Opening Montage
    • Collector's Edition Box Set (w/ Film)
    • Hours of Extended Interviews
    • Deleted Scenes, Outtakes, & Extras
    • Stretch Goal Featurettes
