Apparently adding Kickstarter Events to Find Gamers was more than just a good idea.  This morning someone forwarded me the January 14th article from Luke Crane over at the Kickstarter Blog.  Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised by what I'd read there.  

To quote from the article, "Tabletop games are definitely experiencing a major cultural moment."  Based on the numbers in their blog entry, I can't agree more.  Tabletop games beat the snot out of video games in every possible way during 2015.  Total money pledged to tabletop games (88+ million dollars) was twice as large when compared to video games dollars.  But the most surprising to me was the difference in successful funding.  Tabletop gaming had more than 3.5 times the number of successfully funded projects than video games.

With that in mind, I'd like to remind our members to add your own tabletop gaming Kickstarters to Find Gamers.  Just head to any of the Events pages and select I'd like to then Add an Event.  Its also the right place to add your favorite upcoming convention as well.
