Late pledges are a great way to get board games and accessories you’ve missed during their Kickstarter campaigns. With small exceptions, late pledges allow people to get every single product that was available when the project was running. And that’s not all. Many popular board game publishers add new items to their pledge manager websites, so even the people who backed the game in time have something to check out apart from filling their backer surveys.
There’s plenty of PM services available for board game fans but the majority of campaigns use Backerkit, Crowdox, Gamefound and PledgeManager. Certain publishers (like CMON) also create their own systems or decide to choose local websites like the Italian Giochistarter. There are also some cases when the creator uses their newsletter system to announce that some copies are left from the campaign and will be available in limited supply (example: Serious Poulp with their 7th Continent).
Today we picked 25 board game projects, most of which were funded this year and still have to get shipped to backers. All of them have active late pledge systems and can still be ordered if you missed them!
