Bryan is creating board games

Hi, I'm Bryan Koch. I create card and board games, and I do everything from the initial concept to the final art. It is a one man show, slow-going at times because of all the little details that go into making a game, but I love every minute of it. I do all of it on my own free time and I publish with a print-on-demand company. My costs are minimal for what I do now, but there are some big dreams I have that I would like to share with all of you.
Firstly, I would like to get my games into the hands of more game reviewers. The costs here can vary wildly based on the cost of producing and shipping the game, and whether or not a particular reviewer charges for their services. Some are happy just to get a free game, while others have a stack of games they will never have time to play, and review exclusively as their vocation. 
Secondly, I would like to see one of my games in a retail store. Speaking with multiple game store owners, it is pretty standard that the store would pay me half of what they end up charging people for my game. To keep prices reasonable for the end consumer, I need to be able to buy my games at lower prices, which is achieved through bulk orders. The more copies I can buy at one time, the less each copy costs me. 
All of my games can be found at TheGameCrafter.com/designers/bryan-koch.

If you are the first person to pledge support for my games, I will send you one in the mail. The shipping alone will cost me more than that dollar, so hopefully you will continue to support future games. This offer is only good in the United States.

The Well-Wisher
If you would be so kind as to provide me with a dollar per game, I would send you a personal email thanking you for the support. It might not be a lot of money, but the sentiment it expresses that my games are worth supporting is extremely gratifying for me. You will be updated with releases and progress reports.

I will have a short (10 minutes-ish) conversation on any topic, game-related or not, with you on Google Hangouts or Skype, during which I will thank you "face-to-face" for your support. If I am feeling silly, I may do a little dance for you.

I will send you a personalized letter of thanks by email and include your name in a "thank you" section of all future rulebooks for as long as you continue your patronage.

An image like that of the Benefactors in "The Museum" will be made of your face. One playing card with the image I create will be mailed to you in a thank you letter if you live in the United States. Where ever you live, the image will be emailed to you.

You will be sent a copy of "The Museum", which will feature your face for one of the Benefactors. Customers who buy the game after your image is added will see your face in their copy. Your package will come straight from the printer, so your thank you letter will be an email. (You must live in the continental U.S. for me to have this shipped to you.)

You will be sent a copy of each future game, for as long as you choose to continue your patronage. Each game will make some reference to your name (or pseudonym), or use an image of you in some way. If for some reason the game design does not allow this, you will have an extra large "thank you" in the rulebook.
Goals
$1 of $27 per Published Game
27 dollars would cover the costs of getting an average game printed and shipped to one game reviewer who does not charge for reviews. Some games cost more than that just to print, but with that much support I can cover the rest.
