I'd like to gauge your interest in the Twisty Little Passages puzzle book mentioned here

http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=43531

I'd like to run a Kickstarter campaign to fund illustration, printing and distribution. Would you please share your current level of interest in backing the project when we get to that point and provide a reason for the answer you choose?

I would like to make the project something that you couldn't wait to get into your hands.

Thanks!

Edit: Hmm...I had added an "Other" option to the list, but it's not showing. Sorry about that. If you'd like to select "other", please choose the one that fits best and provide a description in a reply. Thanks for your patience!

Absolutely, since I trust Mr. Rimer to make an excellent and engaging product. I mean, he's batting a thousand so far.

Thanks for the kind, glowing words of praise!

I appreciate the poll responses that are coming in. It'd be most helpful to report some personal thoughts on your selection, even if it's something like "looks cool..." or "Not my cup of tea". I'd like to know, for instance, if personal preference is at play here, or there's something about the design that you have a fundamental issue with. Those kinds of issues could be potentially addressed if they are raised in time.

Thanks for your collaboration!

Not planning on it unless KS starts accepting other payment methods than credit cards or I get one of those.

...

Yup, I live in a country where you can still get by pretty well without a credit card, and last time I checked, KS didn't allow for other payment methods. This has stopped me from backing stuff I would've liked to back before.

This sounds like a super fun project, and since I might travel a bit more in the near future, I might get myself a credit card soon, anyway. Until then, though, it's probably no backing from me. Sorry.

Nothing you can do about it, I guess, but thought I might just as well let you know.

Obviously there's no point in me voting, as I'll have seen all the puzzles already :lol

However I must be honest, kickstarting puzzle books is not something I probably would have considered were it not for the fact that I am directly involved in the making of this book. It turns out solving these puzzles on paper is actually tons of fun, but it's probably not something that I ever would have taken the plunge on trying in the first place.

Ah, that's a reasonable point. Thanks for sharing your feedback on this. Assuming the project funds, I can plan to set up an option to pre-order a copy of the book on the Caravel Games site via BMT Micro, which supports PayPal and other options. I anticipate point shipping costs will likely be a bit higher than sending out copies directly in a bulk distribution. If that's okay, I'll plan to set that up!
