Family Vacation Needs YOU
Well, folks--it's crunch time. With about 20 days to go, Family Vacation needs your help. We currently have over 50 backers, but we need quite a few more. This game is turning out to be a bit of a hard sell for the alphagamers on Kickstarter and BoardGameGeek. Some of them don't even have kids! Also, many people will not jump in until they know it will be successful.
So it's going to be up to us--people with families and/or people who enjoy lighter, casual games from time to time. Here's what I need you to do:
1. Pledge - $30 is a very reasonable price for one night of family fun (or casual fun with friends), let alone the many nights you will enjoy this game. This game would also make a great birthday or Christmas gift. Get your shopping done early! The sooner you join us, the sooner others will follow.
2. Share - There are probably many people among your acquaintances who would enjoy this game. The problem is, they will never hear about it! You can change that. Post a link to the KS page on your Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as other social media sites.
3. Thumb - We can't overemphasize the impact of BoardGameGeek. It's the premier board game website. I need you to visit the Family Vacation page and give a thumbs up to as many items as possible--especially images.
4. Promote - Do you have a blog? Consider adding a small widget or link to your site. (Click the "< > Embed" button right under the project video on KS.) Mention us in a news post. Have some favorite blogs? Ask them to mention us, too. We may need to enlist some mom and homeschool blogs to get to the finish line.
Your help is crucial to our success. Family Vacation isn't just some throwaway filler, it's a special game that truly is a joy to play. Thanks in advance for anything you can do to help make this game a reality. And a special thanks to all those who've already backed us. Wish us good luck!
