A new record for a tabletop game Kickstarter has been set that is over $3.6 million higher than the previous #1, Exploding Kittens.  Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 has drawn $12,393,139 in pledges in a campaign that ended Saturday.  That moves all of the games on our previous all-time Top 10 Tabletop Game Kickstarters chart (see "Top 10 Tabletop Game Kickstarters as of November 17, 2016") down one, and drops Zombicide: Season 3 out of the Top 10.

In addition to setting a new record for total funding, Kingdom Death:  Monster 1.5 also set records for total backers and dollars/backer.

Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5, a cooperative, campaign-style horror miniatures game, has achieved this massive financial support with an up-priced strategy in which the core game, with all its components (see "New Game Threatens To Upset Tabletop Game Kickstarter Chart"), was available for a pledge of $200 to $250, depending on when the pledge was made.  There were nearly 2,300 backers with pledges of $1000 or more.
