April 22, 2022: Kickstarter Reports, April 2022 Update

Last month's campaign, Steve Jackson's Munchkin Presents Batman, did quite well and the factory is now hard at work on their part of the project. Additionally, we took big steps on fulfillment of previous projects; overall, March was a great month for our Kickstarter efforts. How great? Keep reading for the latest news.

Please follow us on Kickstarter  Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23  to receive notice when we launch new campaigns.

The Fantasy Trip Quick Quests 6 and 7, Two New Adventures

  • April 12 to April 25.
  • 582 backers and currently funding.
  • The two newest micro-adventures for use with The Fantasy Trip roleplaying game are now funding. Better still, we've completed the creative work and moved the adventures into the print test phase. If all goes well, we'll have no problem delivering the rewards on schedule.

Steve Jackson's Munchkin Presents Batman

  • March 1 to March 18
  • 3,550 backers and on schedule
  • What a fantastic campaign! Thanks to the backers, we unlocked both planned stretch goals on Day One and the project supporters got a great bargain on the Kickstarter edition of the game. If you missed out, there's still time to take advantage of the crowdfunding price by pre-ordering today at BackerKit. Once BackerKit pre-orders close, though, we'll push the price of the Kickstarter edition to $64.95 for sales through Warehouse 23, so act now to get the special price. The retail edition of the game is scheduled to ship to our distribution partners late this year.

Hexagram #9, an old-school RPG zine for The Fantasy Trip

  • January 26 (2022) to February 2 (2022)
  • 557 backers and on schedule
  • The print rewards have shipped and we're wrapping up the PDF delivery. This is the last time that this project will appear on this report.

GURPS Girl Genius

  • October 20 (2021) to November 8 (2021)
  • 2,915 backers and (still) ahead of schedule
  • Fulfillment in the U.S. and Canada is underway and will be finalized before the end of May. We're still slightly ahead of schedule on this one, though not as much as we had hoped. Just more evidence that global freight and shipping are still a bit of a wreck. (It tooks weeks for the books to move from New York to the fulfillment warehouse in Georgia.)

Car Wars Sixth Edition by Steve Jackson Games

  • November 29 (2019) to January 6 (2020)
  • 3,936 backers, behind schedule
  • Everything is out of our warehouse and we're now down to waiting for the EU, UK, and Australia rewards to reach the fulfillment sites and then mail out to backers.

Recently Completed

As mentioned, March was a great month for wrapping up open Kickstarter campaigns. Random Fun Generator 2 was officially completed, while GURPS Girl Genius and Car Wars Sixth Edition took big steps on the road to the finish line. Clearing that pipeline opens space for some new projects starting this month, including (just maybe!) the long-awaited Wiz-War campaign.

Looking Ahead

The second Pocket Box campaign and the Car Wars Companion are coming together and should reach Kickstarter later this year. We also have a few other small projects to sprinkle in here and there, so please follow both Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 on Kickstarter so that you don't miss anything.
