Brant, Ian, and Jim take a spin through their time in the realm of crowdfunding: what games we’ve pledged, how long ago, and through which channels. We talk about projects we like and others we avoided, our preferences for the kinds of projects we choose to support, and the most ridiculous ones we’ve seen. For what it’s worth, when probing the history of GMT’s p500, even they don’t remember which game was first (and we asked!).
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
While we’re talking about the different kinds of crowdfunding models out there, we also talk about what we don’t like, what perplexes us, and what frustrates the crap out of us. What does the future of crowdfunding look like? How big does your pipeline really need to be? Why are we always asking questions in our podcast posts?!
- Wayback Machine’s old GMT p500 page from December 1998 (the oldest we can find)
- Ardwulf’s Legion Wargames pre-order show
- The infamous Up Front campaign
- “Pure minis porn”
- $1 million campaigns
- Medieval Margin-agerie

Brants comment about the music business was a spot on….I saw Midge Ure from Ultravox back in 2015…..he was touring the US by car, doing shows……so he could remind himself what it was like starting out and also faithfully advise new musicians beginning their careers. During his show this was his comment regarding American Idol: “The music business has become karaoke on television.”….Midge Ure, March 6, 2015, Shank Hall, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Thanks for the nice comments. Much more about the game biz “growing up” like the music biz did back at this episode
