Is there any? I heard that the number for Mighty No 9 might not be accurate at all because some people are inflating their donations only the pull back before the Oct 1 deadline. What consequences are there for putting an amount you never intend to give them if any? What prevents someone from putting 1M down?

That happens all the time. One recent example was Tales of Alltynex.

It offered a digital copy of the game at one price or a physical copy of the game at a higher price, but physical copies would only be made if it reached a certain stretch goal. So a bunch of people who wanted a physical copy signed up for that amount. The game easily reached the minimum funding amount, however near the deadline it became obvious that the physical-release stretch goal would not be reached. At this point, funding tanked as everyone dropped their pledges to the lower digital-copy amount.

Wow that sounds like a terrible idea they had.
Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

The consequence is that one day you will be eating a nice meal and suddenly a monkey will come crashing through your window and fart in your mouth.
These are words, please enjoy them.
