Kickstarter released some very interesting numbers late last week.

Video games pulled in over $46 million in pledges in 2015, but tabletop games raised nearly double that amount with over $88 million raised. Of that, roughly 10 percent came from Exploding Kittens, a cartoony card game that currently holds the record for the most funded games project on Kickstarter of all time. ($8,782,571 pledged of $10,000 goal)

Tabletop games raise more money overall, but they were also far more likely than video games to meet their funding goals. There were 1,230 successfully funded tabletop Kickstarter campaigns last year, compared to 421 successfully funded video game campaigns.
One of the most interesting statistics to come Kickstarter’s report is the fact while tabletop games raised twice as much money as video games and were nearly three times as likely to be funded, the total number of backers was not significantly different between the two. Tabletop campaigns were backed by 522,061 people, whereas video game campaigns were backed by 480,382 people, a difference of only around 8 percent.
