Final marketing tip from Joe to new board game creators:

In terms of one piece of advice, I would say make sure you have enough of a following for your game that you feel confident that it will get funded within the first day or two. If you’re not feeling confident about this, continue to build your following, even if this means delaying your launch date.”
