The press loves to talk about all the brilliant, world-changing projects that rake in millions on Kickstarter. But what about the thousands of projects that normally get swept under the failed-Kickstarter-project rug? It’s time we had some fun with them.
Here’s how to play:
2. 1. Find a lonely project that has barely any backers or seems otherwise doomed for failure, like this one:
3. 2. Take turns backing the project with your friend.
Just increase your pledge amount every turn.
4. 3. Keep going. The project gets closer and closer to getting funded with every round.
6. And you get closer and closer to having to actually pay.
Just remember: watch out for third parties who might swoop in at the last second and fund the project to completion.
