A Kickstarter I'm going to enjoy

One of the most rewarding Kickstarters of 2014 for me was the Pack O Games series. 

Part of the fun was that every stretch goal was a new game in the series and, by the end of the Kickstarter, the number of games had doubled and the last game to get added was the one I was the most excited about. (BUS, by the way. A pick-up-and-deliver game on just thirty cards? I had to see that!)

However, the other thing that was really cool was that we had a lot of fun with the games once they arrived. We haven't played all of them but we have had fun with the ones that we have played. In my opinion, the Pack O Games series has really pushed the bar for the quality of micro games.

So when the second series of Pack O Games was launched, I backed it before I even started looking at what the games were going to be.

Stretch goals or one of those things that can be really exciting in a campaign or you can end up feeling like they added a whole bunch of stuff that you don't really need. Since every goal in this campaign is it's own game, I find that pretty exciting. And, this time, you get to vote on what the next stretch goal will be. That's a great way to engage the backers and keep everyone excited about the campaign.

I really enjoyed the first set in this series and I'm looking forward to what this one brings.
