Not sure if you're speaking from personal experience or just trollin', but
the only loss is a loss in confidence.

Sounds like you already know about the whole kickstarter 'all-or-nothing'
deal, so I won't proselytize about that.

If you're willing to try again, might maybe you could phrase it a little
differently :). We made some stupid flyers that we distributed to all the
local college campuses, and had a silly story about how we were going to
decrease the out-of-control secret agent population.

We could help you make flyers if it's holding you up?
