The other thing they could do, with KS7 is cut down on how long they hold the PM open. Start the KS later, but also close the PM sooner and they could be close to the same schedule. Also with all the restocks they have planned, they might have shifted the expectations and agreements with their factory.

Ha! :D Hopefully not - I'm really looking forward to seeing all my cavern stuff! However, considering everything they do (just as a small company to keep running) and the enormous size of the recent kickstarters, I would not be surprised if the next Kickstarter happened a tiny bit later - just to give everyone on the DF team a bit more time to get everything lined up. I don't know that anyone in the office gets to sleep in the month before, during, or after kickstarter. Only DF can tell us...
I'd actually be okay with KS7 being a 'bit' later - more time to save to have more for it.

DF seems unlikely to change at this point.

As for a behind the scene, somewhat quiet backer I'd love to get some information on KS7! Any hint builds excitement as well as more postings on the boards and social media. I know they do great on their KS'ers without the need to do this but imagine if they operated more strategically and used social media to its fullest effect where they'd be. HMMM?

I concur. I think AnimeSensei nailed it.

Yeah, it seems we're back to the radio silence/secrecy. I don't understand why, as we pushed for more beans for years, finally got them with Caverns Deep, and the KS was the best performing they've ever had. Secrecy diminishes excitement.
I agree, but I remember the early KS5 bean of ruin columns that never made it to KS5 or KS6. They may want to make sure they do not do that again.

Even Marvel has trailers and lets some things slip, all the while swearing secrecy. They understand you need to whet the appetite or people lose interest/spend money elsewhere.

As i recall... They can't run too much later or they may lose their production slot at the factory. At least that was what someone on staff said last year (maybe Nate or GeekJeff?). That was why they started ks6 before everything ks5 had been shipped.
