CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Here are three crowdfunding campaigns that caught our eye this week. Let me know if these products interest you too or if we missed a campaign that we should be letting everyone know about. Gridopolis is a 3D game system that combines an element of building with the gameplay style of chess, tic-tac-toe, and checkers for games that are fun for kids as well as adults. I like Gridopolis 3D gaming system because it’s a modular and expandable game system that you can use to play in a variety of ways.  There are already a few existing blueprints for games to get you started or you can create your own original 3D games by snapping together the basic 7 parts that comprise the Gridopolis system. The Gridopolis campaign ends on 8/22/19 they have met their funding goal of $15,000. You can pre-order a Gridopolis starting at $35. After the Gridopolis campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in March 2020. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.
