Advanced Search allows you to create custom searches using a wide variety of filters, including location, category, tags, and even a way to view only live projects. Search results can also be sorted in order of popularity, launch date, end date, or by funding goal. The new default sort, “magic,” displays a rotating cross section of compelling projects from every category on Kickstarter.
Categories can be selected from the first drop-down in the search phrase. Meanwhile, If you’d like to view a subcategory (e.g. Video Games or Tabletop Games), you should first select the parent category (Games) from the drop-down, and any available subcategories will appear to the right.
By default, projects from everywhere (on this Earth, at least) will be displayed in search results. If you’d like to add further search criteria, you can do so by clicking the + sign at the end of the search phrase. This will allow you to enter a specific search term, and filter by Projects We Love, your Saved projects, your backed projects, or even the percent of funding raised. And if you've connected Facebook to Kickstarter, you can also filter by projects your friends are backing.
