At Gen Con 2018 I spoke with some folks from Game On Tabletop, a new way to crowd fund games. According to their website:

Games are our lives

With more than 20 years of experience in the hobby gaming industry and four years successfully running the Casus Belli crowdfunding platform, Game On Tabletop takes that platform and launches it on the global scale to create an engaging crowdfunding community for gamers, by gamers.

Game On welcomes all types of tabletop games – board games, card games, miniature games, roleplaying games and also all tabletop gaming related projects like apps or conventions.

We also offer a big variety of à la carte services like marketing, production support, fulfillment and campaign assistance.

What the site is missing is a section that explains how it differs from the current crowdfunding platforms. The fees are similar, and I’m not seeing additional options that would overcome Kickstarter’s expansive customer base.

At the date of writing this article Game On Tabletop has funded 97 projects. Does it have what it takes to compete with Kickstarter and Indiegogo? Only time will tell, but it looks like a great group of people who are passionate about games.
