Quick update and PAX
We just got flew back from GAMA (and boy are my tentacle wings tired). It was a fun show, and I was really surprised by the fact that we hit #1 on the Board Game Geek hotlist! Totally cool. We found a lot of emails waiting for us when we got back - these will take a couple of days for sure. Dave should be hitting the shipping skids this week as well for the overseas orders.
We've got some really nice emails from players who have been enjoying the game - these are just about the greatest emails ever to read. We particularly appreciate those who tweet and Facebook about the game, as eventually the game will be available in game stores.
I keep reminding the guys that Fun to 11 is not a traditional "game company" - instead, we are just folks who want to put games we like out in the hands of players who will like them. As such, don't expect to see a bunch of ads in gaming magazines or a demo squad from fun to 11 anytime soon! Our games need to stand on their own.
We've carved out one exception to this rule and that is PAX. The great folks at Kickstarter asked us to give a presentation at the show about our experience and to give advice to others who want to do the same thing. Without Kickstarter, we'd never have been able to make this game (cough, or any others we might be planning, double cough...), so we agreed to go to PAX. We got a small booth there and will be giving a talk on Sunday if anyone wants to see behind the curtain. We'll have copies of the game to sell (of course, you all already have yours!), but if you're at the show, please stop by and say hi! I'm hoping to get any backers who stop by to sign my copy.
Thanks again everyone!
