Sunset Over Water is my sixth board game Kickstarter, but that doesn’t mean I’m running the campaign the same way I did last year with Herbaceous or even this year with Legendary Creatures. With every new Kickstarter, I reconsider all my key choices.

In this video, I take you through the things I did differently and what I did the same.

For reference here is the Sunset Over Water Kickstarter Preview page

    Hey Eduardo thanks for the video talking about different strategies! Quick question with the shortened campaign structure… do you think that this is more viable to more seasoned game makers who have a good history with the KS community? I am looking at a 32/33 day campaign as it is my first one, but I would love to hear more about this from your perspective!

      It took 7 campaigns for me to move to 2 weeks 😛

      I’d suggest sticking with 28-32 for an initial campaign. Jamey Stegmaier has some great info on this o his blog.

    I am really excited to see how your 2 week campaign goes. I almost did the same with my last Kickstarter and chickened out. I hope it proves out that the middle campaign period is wasted time. Great vblog Edo.
