Just read that the Kickstarter get going on Monday - can't wait! I am drooling over the little teasers that have been dropped - I can only imagine how blown my mind will be once I have this game in my hands!!! :D

I'm not in the kickstarter, but I'm glad to see things rolling!

Has anyone posted on BoardGameGeek?
i did a rudimentary search but there was no Game Entry that i could find.

I saw a lot of traffic for Savage Rifts Kickstarter from BBG.

I haven't seen anything over there, and there isn't a game page as of yet.
As I'm one of the Admins on BGG/RPGG, I checked the pending games queue and there's nothing there either; assuming something was submitted right now, there are still over 100 submissions in the queue that haven't been checked for approval, and that's not counting the ones that are still in the queue requesting more info from the submitter - basically you're looking at probably a week before the game page would be approved assuming everything was okay from the time it was submitted.

It does seem odd that the#1 BG site wouldn't be utilized as a way of getting the word out about this prior to the launch of the KS, because it's as close to "free"* marketing that you're going to get, and that's not counting the advertising that could be purchased that would put the project on the front page.


*Clearly there's still time and manpower requirements that would be needed to have that information available, and/or have someone there to keep up on questions and the like, but it's not like it would cost dollars or anything.
