Shipping Crisis & Crowdfunding
Show Notes

"is the joy of crowdfunding games under threat with the recent shipping proce hikes and new import taxes?"

This week Jason & Paul  have to really think hard about the addiction to backing crowdfunding campaigns for games and ask the question. Is crowdfunding still a viable option?

With the recent price hikes of nearly 500-600 percent to ship products, does this mean all those lovely big box games are going to disappear? what about the games you are still waiting for?
That's what they talk about today and what they see as the future to get around this new issue.
