We love games and we love doing the show and while we do have 2 wonderful sponsors who cover a good chunk of the cost to do the show, we are still coming out of pocket to keep things going.
Couple that in to the fact that we would like to expand and imporve what we have to offer leads us here to this fundraising effort.
At its heart this campaign is similar to a Patreon campaign, but after careful consideration, i decided not to go the Patreon route mainly because i did not want to have to keep shilling the Patreon page on every single show. I listen to enough podcasts to know how annoying it can get.
So we have basically set this up similar to Patreon where each pledge level equates to what a year at regular pledge levels would be if you were donating per month. Plain and simple.
What we have also done though is add in an automatic give-away every month for those who financially support the show are automatically entered in each drawing for the entire year. Supporters will receive one entry into the contest every month for each dollar they have donated for the month. (i.e. a $12 donation gets you 1 entry each month for 2017)
We are also kicking things off with a special giveaway for Christmas on the extremely hot and ridiculously overproduced game, Mechs vs Minions from Riot Games.
Along with listener supporters we are also offering publisher/designer support levels in the form of ads on the show, interviews to promote your products/Kickstarter projects and featured previews. (Note all KS projects will need to be approved by us, so if you have the next great CAH style game it probably wont make the cut...just saying)
The more we can raise the more we can do and we will have "stretch goals" for reaching milestones along the way.
Thanks for taking the time to check out the pledge drive but most of all, thanks for listening.
