  • Asking for feedback from backers
  • Hotdogs and gherkins
  • Paying for advertising
  • Opening videos
  • Being honest with your backers
  • Is PnP a good idea for a Kickstarter campaign
  • Getting the theme right
  • Preparing for the campaign
  • The Jumanji Question!
  • Board Game Magic Moments
  • That time I upset Wil Wheaton by accident (I don’t blame Wil, it was a misunderstanding caused by a badly written tweet)
  • Bevan and Gino get Medieval (no, seriously)
