Utah Crowd-Funding: Towering achievement
This week's Utah Crowd-Funding project is a game that might go well with potato salad.
Salt Lake resident Jeffrey Cramer likes to play Jenga, the block-stacking game. But what if it were bigger?
Thus begat Block Tower — BT for short — which takes the same idea and enlarges it with blocks the size of two-by-fours.
Cramer aims to make customized BT sets, and customers can order blocks with their names branded into them, or painted their favorite team colors, or whatever.
Cramer is seeking to raise $2,000 via Kickstarter, to bankroll the project. So far, he has received no pledges; the deadline is Sept. 1.
The only benefit listed, for a $65 pledge, is a customized BT set.
If you have a crowd-funding project you'd like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
