  • The best method to price your game and set your funding goal

  • How to create a project plan for your campaign that will keep you on time and on budget

  • How to find the best reviewers and content creators to get more eyeballs on your game

  • How and where you should advertise and promote your game

  • How to make a campaign page and video that will attract more backers

Each chapter walks you through the process of planning, executing, and delivering on your crowdfunding campaign from an experienced game designer and publisher.

Joe Slack has raised $214,649 Canadian from 4,311 backers through 4 successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns. Three out of four of these campaigns were even funded in less than 4 hours and each one of them smashed their funding goals. He’s back with his fifth board game design-related book to share with you what has worked for him and what hasn’t when crowdfunding a game, so that you can reach your own funding goal successfully.
