Hey there Kickers! How are you holding up? I hope this blog post finds you well. I am doing OK. At least we're a demographic that can usually find something to do when trapped in-doors with loved ones, right?

One of the benefits of doing this for 6 years is that I have a lot of numbers. Those numbers are showing that Kickstarter may be feeling the effects of the big C-19. There was an explosion earlier in year of 'zines in the Tabletop Games category so things likely would have come down anyway but right now we're at 2018 levels of campaigns (which was actually lower than 2017 during the same period). It will be very interesting to watch how this trends over the coming weeks.

Right now there are 256 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (down 45 from last week and 150 from the start of March). Of those, 160 (62.5%) have already reached their funding goals. 64 (25%) have related BGG pages that I can find.

What are you playing? What are you backing? Drop us a comment below and tell us!
