Risks and challenges
We are ready to go. We have the capability to manufacture limited quantities of the Billboards Game; however, we are currently working with a well known game manufacture to get larger runs with more professional game boards.
This game is very simple to manufacture, package, and ship. We will begin selling from our website www.billboardsgame.com and on Amazon.com. Once we are more established, we will begin to branch out to other retail websites and possibly department stores in the future.
Our biggest hurdle at the moment is getting financing to complete all the needed certifications, copyrights, trademarks, UPC, and first production run. The proper finances will allow us to move forward with the physical game and hopefully draw investors for the mobile app.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
