Weird, I though Kickstarter loved gambles.

If it's gambling, they're already taking everyone's money.

While Kickstarter's reasoning for taking this game down is still not entirely clear, I for one do not feel that any sort of gambling "game," and I use that term loosely, is deserving of crowd funding.

Think about it. As a consumer, you're not getting a "finished" product that is then yours to keep and do with whatever you choose like you would with a videogame or a book or a movie. It is a product that requires you to continually throw your hard-earned money at it once it is completed, which seems to go against the whole idea of a "project" funded via Kickstarter. So unfortunately for the developers of Chumba World, I do not feel sympathy.

The game is free-to-play. Sure, you can buy some in-game currency if you want, just like you can in other Facebook games, but I don't think it's mandatory.
