The Decemberists’ Crowd-Funded Board Game “Illimat” Raised $416,628, Ten Times Their Goal

In Collaboration with Illustrator Carson Ellis and Game Designer Keith Baker

The Decemberists are releasing a board game named Illimat. As we previously reported, it’s been crowd funded on Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign just ended and did the band meet their goal? You could say that. In fact they raised nearly 10 times their goal. They had set out to raise $42,812 and the campaign totaled out at $416,628! That’s pretty far on the road to half a million dollars. Either The Decemberists have very passionate fans (5,963 of them backed the project) or we’re all in the wrong business and should be producing crowd-funded board games instead of whatever we’re doing.

The game was put together in collaboration with their longtime illustrator Carson Ellis (also frontman Colin Meloy’s wife) and game designer Keith Baker. It was inspired by a 2009 photo shoot done by photographer Autumn de Wilde when the game was mocked up by Ellis mocked up as a prop. Also, the band like to play board games before going on stage. Illimat is a game for 2-4 players and can be played in 15 minutes. Below is a video about the game. Also The Decemberists are putting out a deluxe 10th anniversary reissue of 2006’s The Crane Wife on December 9.
