And you won't believe the [uberbeans]!

At least it starts on a weekend.

I'm just glad we're not also showing amount spent per campaign.

My backer numbers on previous campaigns:
KS1 - 789
KS2 - 104
KS3 - 138
KS4 - 88

My backer numbers:
KS1 - 3,280
KS2 - 270
KS3 - 14
KS4 - 8

As you can see, I've gotten faster and faster at snagging a pledge. I enjoy trying to get as low a backer number as possible just so I can show up here and brag. :P

Pro Tip: To get a really low backer number, you have to select a random pledge without even reading what it is, and then go back and check (and change) what you pledged later.....

That is my plan but I expect to be up against some heavy competition. I am more worried about logging into the KS as I have never been in one at the launch. Does it pop up automatically as a new KS or do you have to keep refreshing a KS search until it appears?

Do you really think I'm going to tell you all of my secrets and then have you end up with a lower backer than me? OK - just because you're a fellow Canadian I'll tell you my process (but don't let anyone else on the forums know):

1) Make sure you're already logged into your Kickstarter account

2) Make sure your credit card info is all up to date

3) Go to the Dwarven Forge Kickstarter profile page, and select to view the projects they've created (currently 4 projects).

4) Keep refreshing that page near launch and as soon as you see a 5th project appear, click on it and lock in a pledge really fast.

The most important rule is not to share my Low-Backer-Number tricks with anyone else. Got it?

What am I missing? What's the advantage of a low backer number? I've NEVER been part of a Kickstarter before so I don't understand how any of this will work yet. What's the difference if I log on in 5 seconds versus not until the 5th day?
