History was made yesterday, around 17:55 GMT, when the Conan Kickstarter project, from Monolith Board Games, finished it’s funding period.
The final figures for the Kickstarter were quite staggering:
16.038 Backers, raising a total of $3,327,757.
This makes it not only the most successful boardgame Kickstarter ever, but the most successful tabletop game Kickstarter ever, as it even beat Reaper’s ‘Bones II’ project.
Podcast host’s Mike Hobbs and Mike Whitaker were both on this project reasonably early…I backed it very much at the last minute (the ghost of ‘Heroes of Normandie’ was looming large!) Considering the bundle they have on offer, it’s a really good deal.
Obviously, now the the hard work for Monolith begins, They’ve built some very big expectations over the last few weeks, and have a huge undertaking to deleiver to 16.000+ customers.
But they can take a well deserved breather for a couple of days knowing that, even in a small way, they are history makers.
