The Action Points Podcast! Episode 75: Kickstarting with the 3 Al-migos

In this episode:

I have a chat with the 3 Al-migos (Al Caynes, Alistair Kearney and Allen Chang) about their experiences and lessons learned from their Kickstarter forays. We also chat about cross-promoting Kickstarters, shipping to Australia, what motivates us to back Kickstarters, paid previews and how we value games. In reviews, I give a quick rundown on the board game Orleans.
