We are about to enter the Easter weekend which in the UK means 4 entire days devoted to eating chocolate, and I hope regardless of whether Easter is a holiday you celebrate, that you get to enjoy a tasty treat this weekend as well!
The plans for 2023
I have always wanted to keep all my games, expansions, and accessories available for anyone around the world but this has been tricky over the past couple of years. The costs of shipping skyrocketed which meant I had to be a bit more careful on restocking older games.
The good news is prices of freight shipping have come back down and I’m now working hard to restock just about everything The City of Games has ever made. I’m hoping by the end of 2023 that the days of out of stock games will be behind us and I appreciate your patience with this.
There will also be some new surprises later this year and while Race to the Raft will be the big new game hitting stores, I’m hopeful we’ll see a few other items releasing this year as well.
I can’t say too much just yet but I think for the first time in a long time I can say there will be something for everyone and I am very excited about it!
This month in publisher lessons I discussed the following topics:
- How to make a meeple
- Difficulty in cooperative games
- Can a first-time creator succeed on Kickstarter?
- The cost of a mistake
- Joyful moments
- Starting small in distribution
- What happens if I die?
- Should I be a promo card?
- Choosing fulfillment partners
- Do I need a team?
An update on Frank
I have managed to play a lot of new to me games recently including 7 Wonders Duel, Skulls of Sedlec, Beyond the Sun and Colourful, which I really enjoyed. I also managed to sit down with Sara and watch The Whale which turned out to be a fantastic movie that I highly recommend watching.
Until next time
I’m currently working on a lot of small projects which I’m looking forward to revealing later this year but for now my priority continues to be getting Race to the Raft made and into your hands.
