There have been some notable releases through Kickstarter.
Eminent Domain - one of the earlier big successes.
D-Day Dice - most successful board game kickstarter to date.
How do you expect Kickstarter to effect the Designer Board Game ecosystem? Will Kickstarter flood the market with too many bad games from people trying to get rich. Will it kill the industry like Napster did to the music industry? Will it be more like Youtube, lowering the entry field for exciting new designers, like Youtube brought us many new entertainers.
