As I mentioned in last week's update, there was a bit of a lull as our primary distributor missed their Friday delivery, which meant double delivery this week. SO. MANY. AMAZING. GAMES. Seriously, it's like board gaming nirvana around here! We loaded up with plenty of restocks too! I haven't had the time to roll in the preorders yet, but there will just be more for next week!
As for store news, there's a lot going on! We've shipped out two of our much anticipated preorders; Spirit Island: Jagged Earth and Cyberpunk Red. I'm proud to say that we were able to get them both out on the same day we received them - even though it's only just Wendy and I. The secret is preparedness. I have all of the boxes and packing materials prepositioned and Wendy runs the logistics and writes the notes. It's like a well oiled machine!
I've also tweaked the webstore, it's something I'm always working on improving. This time I was able to crack the code on media mail, and now if someone has just books in their cart (and with all the roleplaying game books we carry...) the media mail option will appear - saving them so much money on shipping! It was a bit of a logic puzzle, and I had to adjust all of the products (we're at about 1000 products!), but in the end it was worth it as that's one more thing I don't have to fret about anymore.
Next week comes our largest preorder to date, the magnificent Twilight Imperium: Prophecy of Kings. It's going to be something! We also have another large shipment of games expected, as all of the publishers are trying to beat the Christmas ordering deadline. I know we are enjoying the pace and look forward to more!
