“What’s the most you’ve spent on a Kickstarter game relative to the amount of play it received?”
The winner, by a mile, is the RuneQuest: Classic Edition Kickstarter. I spent a huge amount of money on it to get at some (only some!) of the collector items, and it’s very likely that I will never actually play it.
Granted, virtually none of the projects I’ve backed have seen play. Some quick math says I’ve brought 10% of my backed game projects to the table, and of those maybe one of them saw a decent amount of repeated play (Tenra Bansho Zero).
The related topic folks seem to be including is: Has my Kickstarter habit ebbed or flowed as time wears on? I feel like I back fewer projects these days, but when I do back something, I tend to go all-in. Which I suppose is maybe good, as it means I am genuinely interested in what I back and not just impulse-buying. Though I guess it also means that the average amount of money I waste on games has stayed level.
And saying “waste” is only somewhat humorous. I’ve been feeling extremely guilty about the number of games I have sitting idly on shelves in my basement. I could blame having a kid as the reason I rarely get to play, but honestly my eyes have always been bigger than my stomach when it comes to games. Frankly, I have a problem and I really need to work on this.
