We survived Snowmageddon 2021! About six inches of snow fell on us, and that might not be much for those up north, but we don't have the equipment to handle it...so it really does shut everything down. We still were able to add great new games and restocked numerous items that arrived early in the week, and laid in a single preorder. The beat goes on!
Eric here, and I'll lay out some shop news from last week, but if you don't want to deal just jump to the bottom and check out our restocks, new items and preorders... or singular preorder last week which is more accurate.
Trust me, I get the joke about snow in the south. I lived in northern Wisconsin through high school, so I understand snow. However, it's amazing what it does down here... again, where I'm originally from this is what spring looks like:
However, here it's a non-starter. Like...literally, nothing outside likes to start and we were frozen out of our vehicles. In the photo that looks like slush, but it's frozen over like a skating rink. There is equipment that can take care of the main roads, it's getting to them that's so very difficult. Then, folks drive as if nothing's different, so the roads are covered with cars all over the shoulders. Anyway... that put a damper on our week, but the exciting thing is our normal distribution that couldn't make it will all be coming in next week. That includes the preorders that were supposed to be in today. It's going to be wild!
Reminder that this is the last week for our Warp's Edge board game giveaway! We'll be drawing names early Thursday morning and getting the winners to Martin and Michael at Solosaurus who will announce the two winners on their podcast. Again, it's a Kickstarter version of Warp's Edge and the regular review copy. Nothing wrong with free, and I right?! Make sure you check it out!
A customer asked if it'd be possible for us to carry Heroes of Tenefyr. So, I checked with the publisher, and found out they are a small European publisher not set up for US distribution. After a bit of back and forth we were able to work out an arrangement, and it does make business sense in the end, so in a few weeks we'll be putting Heroes of Tenefyr and The Second Curse expansion on our shelves! It looks really good, and I'm glad we'll be giving it more exposure.
I was hoping to hop around like a Hobbit today, as we've filled the majority of our gaps in The Lord of the Rings card game... but the final piece of that order is stuck out there somewhere. I believe once we have the final cards loaded in we'll have all of the packs to be able to complete six or seven of the Cycles, which is simply amazing... more on that next week!
In our last bit of news this week, we were able to secure the Retail Promo packs for Aeon's End: New Age as well. We'll be including them for free with every order of the base game while supplies last. I really enjoy hunting for different promos, and passing them on to customers as a bonus is simply awesome!
