Nice "looking" additions since my last Kickstart visit:

Lex Arena - I'm a sucker for woodwork's so this one looks really good and I don't even need to know if the gameplay is any good, but at 35Eur for an early bird copy it's too much for me.

I'm also a sucker for wood and for ancient Rome. I haven't backed or even looked at anything on KickStarter before now but I'm intrigued by this game! I'll have a closer look at the gameplay later and make a decision.

I recently received my copy of Space Team from kickstarter. It's a card based version of the popular co-op mobile game of the same name. Set collection mechanic with no turn order. Chaotic and big fun for a 5min palate cleanser. I'm also considering picking up a copy of Secret Hitler when that comes back on sale, however my gaming nights rarely see 5 players.

Indeed. You are supposed to be helping me move to Portugal (which involves *saving* money), not forcing me to buy more games.  >:D

So I did it (early bird)! The game components are so beautiful that I basically had no choice :) Plus the early bird offers were starting to run out...

The amount pledged has jumped from €800 a few hours ago to €2050 now, so hopefully they're well on track for the €10,500 they need.

Lex Arena is almost 1/3 of the way to the €10,500 goal after 24 hours, with 28 days left. For those who know about these things, do the projects usually get the most pledges at the beginning (e.g. when there's an early bird opportunity) or towards the end?

Haha! You're hooked ;)

Usually there's a rush at the start. A gradual climb then kickstarter sends an email when 48hrs remain to people who wanted reminders. This usually causes another big rush, but it dependa how the middle has gone. Hopefully they'll advertise well and there will be a hype at the end. Take a look at a website called kicktraq they make good estimates on how projects are doing.

Another victim....
This trend will end up with a Kickstarter project to fund a Kickstarted support Group.  ;D ;D

Should get funded but being their 1st project I believe they are lacking a bit on the marketing, nevertheless kicktraq is point towards funding tough to days data is way to short for statistics.

Does anyone know if kickstarter game projects can get a BGG page while their funding drive is ongoing?

They can indeed and you can even link up the Kickstarter link to the page. I've seen it many times.

OK, the Lex Arena people have asked donors for help in spreading the word and this seems like one of the best ways to do it.
