Kickstarter: The Schlock Mercenary Board Game

My friends and I would like to make a board game.

To that end, we're trying something I've never tried before. We're using Kickstarter to fund the project. You can get all the details here on the Kickstarter site, but in a nutshell it works like this:

  1. You pledge money using your credit card.
  2. A hold is placed for that amount on your card, but your card is not actually charged.
  3. If our goal is reached, your card (and every other pledged card) is charged for the pledged amount. Kickstarter gives us the money, and we start the manufacturing process.
  4. If our goal is not reached, all holds are released and nobody is charged anything.

We made a video to tell you about the game! 

I've played the basic version of the game, and I loved it. Now I want to illustrate and manufacture the full version and play THAT. And I think you'll want to play it, too.
