Too Big To Fail: A Kickstarter Lesson in Humility

April 2nd - via: albinodragon.com
We’re no strangers to crowd funding. So far our projects have brought in over $1,000,000 and some might argue that we know what we’re doing. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t make mistakes. Let’s take a look at some of the lessons learned on our last project, Dragon Crate. (Read More)


March 25th - via: kickstarter.com
I know it was a bit iffy if we were going to make it on the last update, but I’m glad that we did. Thanks to everyone that has backed this project and given feedback to help shape it into the crate of awesomeness that it now is! Over the next... (Read More)

Less than 6 hours left to Pledge!

March 25th - via: kickstarter.com
Thanks again to everyone that has increased their pledge and told a friend or five about the project to help us get to the final goal. We're so close, it's crazy.  Like, so close that if every backer just put in $2 and we had a few more people join... (Read More)

We're about 36 hours away from the close of this project and less than $6,000 shy of funding so if you were waiting until the last minute to back the project, it's the last minute :-) Remember, if the project doesn't fund, we don't receive any of the... (Read More)

Revised Coin

March 21st - via: kickstarter.com
We've gotten quite a bit of traction the last few days through some blog posts and ads. Fortunately, Kicktraq shows us as hitting our funding goals soon.  What I found curious however is that such a small percentage of our backers have actually come... (Read More)

New Art

March 19th - via: kickstarter.com
Since we’ve decided to go with the Dragon-themed deck, it only made sense to go out and get an artist that was really good at drawing dragons. We went back to one of the artists that worked on the Dragon Whisperer project, which seems quite fitting... (Read More)

Book 1 - The Pain of the Wind: A Lesson In Scale

March 19th - via: albinodragon.com
I worked for many years in a corporate environment before starting Albino Dragon. In that time there was a vicious animal that always found its way into projects: scope creep. Let’s look at the what Wikipedia has to say about it first:

Typically, the scope increase consists of either new products or new features of already approved product designs, without corresponding increases in resources, schedule, or budget.

Sound like a project you may have backed recently? This blog post is the first part showing how some of that scope creep affected our final numbers and how these lessons may help you with your own project. (Read More)

Progress Update

March 18th - via: kickstarter.com
In Update #3 we asked if everyone would prefer the Magic theme or the Dragon theme and the overwhelming response was for the latter. Since then we’ve been working with some other artists to put together a truly dragon-themed deck. Unfortunately,... (Read More)

Dragon Coin

We started on a couple designs that we really like, but each one is so drastically different from the other that we thought we'd ask you guys which one you like better.  (Read More)

New Art

Thanks to everyone that came out to the SXSW Gaming Expo to see us this year. I’m curious how many of our current backers may have come from the show (we had the Dragon Crate on display there all weekend). Deck ThemeWhen we originally worked on... (Read More)

Extra Reward Tier Available

March 7th - via: kickstarter.com
There were quite a few people that were interested in having a second deck so that they had one to open and one to collect. In response, we have added a reward tier that includes the Dragon Crate plus an additional deck (for a total of two decks).... (Read More)

25% on the first day

March 5th - via: kickstarter.com
Thanks to everyone that has backed the project so far. Because of you, we were able to fund 25% on the first day. The road to 100% is not going to be as easy though. We’ll need your help in the next 20 days to make it happen. There are two things... (Read More)
