A board game designed by a Lockport man may be produced if he can raise the funds. (CONTRIBUTED ARTWORK)


With just seven hours to go, Jason Gough is less than $2,000 away from his goal of funding production of Island Dice.

Gough, who developed the game over the course of three years with Kevin Bolliger of Grand Island, first attempted to fund the game's production via Kickstarter in June. He fell short of the $29,000 goal but regrouped and made another effort in October with a lower goal of $21,500. That effort fell short, as well.

This time, however, the Island Dice funding goal is closer than ever. As of 1 p.m., Gough's company, "Casual Dragon Games," has received $19,692 in pledges towards its $21,500 goal. The funding deadline is 8 p.m.

Gough told ENP that he is confident that he will reach the goal this time around. Many Kickstarter campaigns have the most activity in their closing hours. Island Dice has gone from 70 percent funding Tuesday afternoon to 80 percent Wednesday morning. It stands at 92 percent now.

Pledges can be as little as a dollar. Starting at pledges of $10 or more, backers will receive something in return for their money, as is customary in many Kickstarter campaigns.



With a little over three hours remaining, the project needs just $493 in pledges to be funded.
