I woke up this morning to frost on the trees, it’s a truly beautiful time of the year – if not a little bit cold!
This will be the last update of 2022 and it has been an incredible year, with The Isle of Cats expansions releasing in the first half and Race to the Raft launching on Kickstarter towards the end. I was so glad I got to see many of you at shows again and I’m thankful for your continued support.
Pre-orders are live
I am pleased to announce the pledge manager for Race to the Raft went live yesterday and if you missed the Kickstarter you can now pre-order the game.
I’m really looking forward to shipping this out to everyone next year.
This month in publisher lessons I discussed the following topics:
- The Valve approach to pre-orders
- The week after a Kickstarter
- A quick digital demo – Was it worth it?
- The 48-hour backer sale
- Where do Kickstarter backers come from part 2
- 4 tips for great customer service
- How do you playtest board games
An update on Frank
I am happy to confirm I set up my Christmas tree this week and that the holiday celebrations have officially begun with Yanna & Kuma’s 4th birthday a couple of days ago. I’ve just finished watching Narcos on Netflix which I enjoyed a great deal and I’m looking forward to playtesting some new games over Christmas!
Until next time
Things have been pretty non-stop since August with conventions, Kickstarters, and preparing files for print so I’ve decided to have a few days off over Christmas. I’ll still be checking my emails but it’s time to have a rest before I get too deep into new projects for 2023.
I hope you, your friends, and your family all have a wonderful December and for those of you who celebrate, have a great Christmas.
I’ll see you in the new year!
