Backers are in general willing to pay more for games including minis. This makes much sense considering how miniatures actually increase production costs and the entire price. That also makes it easier to understand why board game designers using Kickstarter often try to add miniatures at any cost.

When asked about the amount of minis enough for one game, most of you chose amounts between “a few” and up to 50 (73,9% total). Higher amounts of minis per game (51-100) are prefered by 23,4% and only 2,7% of you voted for 100 minis and more.

The final question was also quite a surprise. We knew that many of you like painting minis, but didn’t expect nearly half of replies to be “yes”. Interacting with you game in ways other than playing shows how dedicated KS backers and the entire board gaming community are.

Thank you once again for all the replies. We will soon tackle another controversial, KS board game related topic, and ask you for your opinions. Stay tuned!
