I Know That You Know I Wanted To Give You An Update!
Hi, friends! I hope you're all enjoying the start of summer and bringing You Think You Know Me along with you on your camping trips, BBQs, graduations, parties, and weddings! It's thrilling to see your posts across social media — hearing all your heartwarming experiences and fun times means so much to me. Thank you, I'll never get used to it, it's the absolute best.
More Stores Galore
My last update was three months ago, and since we last touched base I've been watching with amazement as You Think You Know Me expands into stores across the country.
My game is now available through 21 retail locations in 11 U.S. states, and five online retailers: Amazon, UncommonGoods, Buyolympia, Herbivore, and ProjectObject. The official site is now up-to-date with every single place you can find it.
You Think You Know Me is now available with free shipping for Amazon Prime members in the U.S., and as of this week, way cheaper for everyone outside the United States. AmazonGlobal's shipping costs about $9-14 almost anywhere in Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. (Import fees may be added.)
I'm still working on finding international retailers to carry the game, but for now, this is a great option for everyone outside the United States.
If you or a friend buy the game on Amazon, I'd really appreciate it if you took a moment to write a review. For new products like mine, each review makes a big difference in how it's ranked on the site and displays in search results and other product listings. There are already four delightful five-star reviews, and I'm excited to see that grow over time.
Press and Events
Portland Monthly Magazine interviewed me for a thoughtful and kind piece in the June 2018 issue, saying it's "basically Cards for Humanity." 😂! You can read the article online now, and the issue is currently on newsstands in Portland.
On The Incomparable's Game Show podcast, host Glenn Fleishman played a podcast-modified version of You Think You Know Me, picking cards for each player in three rounds resulting in a very entertaining listen!
I also participated in a bunch of events since the last update. As part of Design Week Portland, I participated in Portland Indie Game Squad's huge Drink n' Draw event, where I was the only tabletop game designer to show alongside 20 amazing videogames. Earlier that week, five couples who run small businesses together ran a panel at Design Week Portland about working with your life partner, and played You Think You Know Me in the classic Newlywed Game-style to see how well they knew each other, which was a blast!
At the end of April, I showed YTYKM at Powell's for International Tabletop Day and was at Crafty Wonderland's spring event as a featured designer for Buyolympia. Finally, YTYKM will be in the much-adored UncommonGoods Catalog for Fall 2018, which should go out by August. Exciting!
A little over a year ago, on May 15, the idea for You Think You Know me hit me like lightning and I’m still so grateful to all of you who made it real. 💗
