I'm with you on all of these (although, I did get the chest, shoddy as it is...). I think I "lucked out" and skipped on the Sea Monsters for some reason.

Ultimately, Ice Age Mammals is still my favorite "failed" KS (actually just a scam though). I learned so much from that one and have continued to refine my KS "spidey sense" and raise the bar for what I back VS come back to later.
When did you get the chest? No one else in the KS comments has received anything.
Weird that you never got one - i got one as an SG for backing one of their coin KSs - they said they were extras from the treasure chest campaign
Yeah, go read the comments on the chest campaign. It's terrible how the backers there have been treated. I've never had a KS give away product from a kickstarter to other backers from another campaign before fulfillment was complete. It's like it DF were giving free CD pieces to people that ordered from Paizo or something.

I was putting a few of these together again today and found this out. Seems that they fit together perfect to make it double wide.

That’s nice!

Noted for a future purchase.

Did not back this one, must have had some 6th sense as it looks very promising.

Out of 139 projects only one confirmed Total Fail - $179 on a 3D printer 'Tiko'. They did at least make some and even delivered a few, but they were not good, Quality control issues subsequent rework costs sunk it.

There is one other that delivered a hunk of plastic that is supposed to be a wireless charging station for mobile (Cell) phones - still trying to get some respose out of their customer service.

But all in all been pretty lucky or savvy........ok mostly lucky on our Kickstarters

It just arrived completely out of the blue a month or so ago. I had completely given up on that project.

It's now sitting on a shelf waiting for me to try to repair the darn thing. It came with a bag of replacement parts, but I don't think I'll end up swapping much of it out. I think the parts already attached to the chest are about the same quality as the replacements, so I'm unlikely to do the work to swap them out. OTOH, there are a few random parts that have fallen off on their own that I need to figure out how to re-adhere.

EDIT:
I should do an audit to see how many I've actually had completely fail/scam/go-dark. Probably somewhere around 10-12 out of ~500 backed.

One of my very first campaigns failed and had no communication for years and years. I was finally able to contact the original creator through another channel and he sent me a full refund!

The only project I’ve backed that looks likely to be a total bust is Ernest Gary Gygax Jr.'s Marmoreal Tomb. The two people working on it have taken to sulking and rudeness, and there is little evidence that any work is being done:

https://www.tenkarstavern.com/2019/03/a ... x.html?m=1

It’s a shame, since this was to be a publishing of “The Hobby Shop Dungeon.” I have many fond memories of visiting TSR’s Hobby Shop when I was 10-12 yrs old. I never had the opportunity to play D&D there, but it was a place of magic and wonder and I was hoping a bit of that craziness might’ve seeped through into the book.

Ah well.

I got burned on the first two also. Thus far I have not been burned by any others.
