Ogre v6 successful!

I passed the test, and did not buy the Ogre Designer edition.  However it looks like thousands of other people did do so, so great news.  The Kickstarter raised over $920,000, which is a tremendous amount of money for the re release of a board game!  That made the game better for everyone, by increasing the quality of the game, and decreasing the risk for STG.

Now I just have to suffer with the nagging feeling that I did really want this thing...

In any case, it seems like Kickstarter is now here to stay, and should prove to be interesting in the years to come to see what sort of projects get made following this method vs. the old fashioned "max out the credit cards and pray" method of game publication.
