Risks and challenges
Experience to Complete the Project
August games is managed by a group of gamers with lots of business experience in regards to printing, game production, distribution, design, and project management. We identified the main area of risk to be game play, production, distribution and cash flow.
This is our third Kickstarter after funding 200% on our last project.
We leveraged our printing experience along with nine months of preparation time to ensure we fully covered all aspects of the production for Dragon Brew Orctoberfest. We interviewed almost a dozen manufacturers and decided to go with an experienced company with a strong belief in good communication.
We are partnering with Quartermaster Logistics for our backer reward fulfillment and warehousing. Quartermaster is the sister company of CoolStuffInc.com, a business that has been shipping games for over 14 years to customers around the world. Quartermaster Logistics will ensure your packages arrive safe and on time as every game is professionally packed and protected.
Our business experience has taught us the importance of cash flow to these sorts of projects. We worked hard on the budget to bring Orctoberfest to the market. We raised double the amount of capital we thought we would need to guarantee a lack of capital would not cause Octoberfest to fail.
