Worst Tucson Kickstarter Ever?

Day of the Dead Dominoes caught my attention for many different reasons. I could care less if project manager Art Paredes is trying to use Day of the Dead for monetary reasons but his execution is all wrong.

I couldn't stomach the six minute video describing the history of Day of the Dead and how much fun it is to play with coffin shaped dominoes. No one in this day and age posses the attention span to watch someone talk about dominoes for longer than a Vine. The fact that Paredes has never backed a Kickstarter project before is also troubling. If you're not willing to support a project then why should anyone return the respect? I like to think of Kickstarter as community of people that are looking to help the little guy make his or her idea come to fruition.

The biggest and most obvious question: Why does Paredes need $249,850? Why don't you open a Day of the Dead Domino's Pizza while you're at it? Nowhere in the project description tells me how the funds are going to be used. These aren't the questions I should be asking when I back any kind of crowdfunding project. I believe in supporting new local entrepreneurs, but you shouldn't ask for an early retirement.
