Episode 17 - The Kickstarter Rabbit Hole

by Pub Meeple | Pub Meeple Podcast

Welcome to Episode 17 of the Pub Meeple Podcast! Join us as we take a deep dive down the Kickstarter rabbit hole. We cover everything from the first games we Kickstarted, how we decide what to back, all the way to the ones we are excited about in the future (and lots more in between). We then wrap up with our overall thoughts on Kickstarter and where we think it is headed.

We are putting out the call for listener questions! If you have a question you’d like us to answer on the podcast please email it to pubmeeple@gmail.com.
