Thanks for the suggestions, guys!
... I`m not familiar with any of them by name, but I`m gonna grab my guitar and YouTube 'em!  8)

I did see Jerry and the Dead twice live though: once in Toronto, and once in Buffalo (Rich Stadium - Steve Miller was the opener!!!)

Ditto what Fess said.....
Like to see these in a spread.

-eh

Eddie, you'll see some soon and thanks for the kind words to Fess and you.

I'm in the last stage of finalizing everything and Anthony has taken some amazing photos that'll be popping up later with a more in-depth look at the deck.

I can tell you for sure I've tried to do some new things and listen to feedback that I've gotten from backers.

Hello PCF users!

Some of you guys might remember me from the early days of Kings Wild Project (I may have answered your questions on Kickstarter or helped with your order) or as that guy that designed a series inspired by Bee, The Hive, and then recently, a Chinese theme deck, Dynasty.

I've got a deck coming out soon: Marquis Playing Cards. Here's a quick teaser image (photo by the wonder Anthony Ingrassia) and there's a short first look article on Kardify . More info and images soon.

Playing Card Plethora / Re: Can you recommend Kickbooster?
« Last post by bhong on March 17, 2017, 01:15:46 PM »
Hi,

I haven't used anything like Kickbooster. My suggestion and your mileage may very, is if you're willing to pay for advertisement and such like, you're better off doing more or taking some time to re-think your plan. I hope you don't take any offence as it's not meant to be, but to me, you're the one working super hard for this and it's your money.

My suggestion is, if you haven't, reached out to other interesting projects you like and see if they're willing to cross-promote with you. You plug each other. In all honesty, you'll probably get a lot of non-replies or negatives, but it's a good valid way and a lot of projects do it these day.

The other thing is that, it seems, that your project is a board game with a playing card component. Nothing wrong with that, but it may have an identity crisis of who you're appealing to or maybe it's confusing people as they're unsure of it. For your board game side, do you have any physical copies even if it's a test copy? The board game communities are HUGE. Try to reach out to people in that community (you'll have to do your own research). Have videos of play test so people can see how the game works. Maybe even have prototype print and play versions for people to try out and take feedback. Same thing for playing cards, there are places to print out test samples of them and you can find reviewers, there's a pretty prolific reviewer on this forum that post regularly in the review section, who have their own reach and audience. These last bits might not be as useful now and maybe something to think about if you decide to relaunch if you're unable to successfully fund the first time.

None of this is hard and fast rules, but I think if you're willing to pay, you're better spending your money and time in other ways to promote your project as you worked hard on the project.

Good luck and I hope some of the advice is helpful.

That's great. Thanks for sharing. It's more about gambling, but it's the only one I can think of at the moment. Deal by Jerry Garcia.

Good stuff! I'm sure there are loads of card related tunes. Here are a couple I know off the top of my head, though I don't play either of them regularly.

Jack of Diamonds ... all about cards
Lily Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts ... not so much

I have a fender acoustic as well (just an ordinary acoustic). It's in pretty poor condition after I didn't look after it very well in some Swedish winters, but I usually keep it in an open tuning and it sounds fine ...
