Show Notes

Co-Host John Coveyou and Guest Marc Specter join Host Richard Bliss to discuss the challenges of non-traditional board games on Kickstarter

John Coveyou, with Genius Games, has launched more than a dozen Kickstarter projects, yet his current campaign, Nerd Words, made some mid-campaign adjustments due to the difficulty of convey the game's experience into a Kickstarter campaign.

While the project has funded, it has not met the bar set by many of John's spectacularly successful hard-science games that have come before.

Marc Specter, with Grand Gamers Guild, has launched Endangered, a game that tackles the many challenges facing today's eco-systems. 

This is a significant divergence from Marc's previous successful Kickstarter campaigns and shares strong similarities in the challenges from John's campaign.

Together, John and Marc, discuss how to address the gamers market with group games and educational games without having them carry the negative labels of failed efforts by other projects in this area.

Both are knowledgeable and well-informed.
