Good news from Atlanta: it seems that all the packages of pawns arrived. Good news from the board game folks: My 250 games should be arriving in Atlanta any day now. I’m skeptical and I’ll believe it when I see it. I’m cautiously optimistic: “expecting the worst but hoping for the best.” I honestly don’t […]
Finally got a response back from two foreign game distributors, one in Germany and one on England. (I had previously e-mailed each of them twice before, I guess persistence finally paid off. They want to know what terms I’m offering, and what shipping will be. I know the terms, but had no idea what shipping […]
I e-mailed the game folks asking for an update on the 250 games. The latest info (this shit seems to change by the hour) is that the pawns are being finished and should be on a boat sailing August 24, with an ETA of September 25. That’s 10 days later than last time I asked, […]
I’m sleeping better at night… Found out that my shipment was X-rayed by Customs, they didn’t see anything interesting, so they sent it back to the warehouse, and theoretically it will be on the way to Atlanta. I’m now figuring my chances of having the games at the big premiere are better than 50/50, maybe […]
An old friend of mine, a shrunken head collector from Toronto, said he’d buy three games. Excellent! Not sure what the shipping to Toronto will be, but I appreciate the support. I’ll send him an autographed Buddha figurine.
GOT MY FIRST PRE-ORDER! An old co-worker friend of mine, The Weasel, who occasionally did test-playing (and with whom I saw Billy Idol in a small club in Toronto in 2005), came through. Thanks Weasel!
Somebody in Malta tried to scam me. Here’s how it works: After you register your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, your name and address get put on a list. Several lists, actually, and at least one is publicly published in the official USPTO Gazette. Scammers will then put you on a list […]
I got, overnight, from Hong Kong via Nevada, the sample figures that will serve as the prototypes for the pawns in the game. These are basically made of sculpted hard clay. The Limited Edition idols served as the prototypes. Those are handmade and hand-poured, and have much more detail than could be done in a […]
I sent e-mails to Web sites who might want to carry Playing Gods. I got my first official question about the Arab “NotMoe” figure from one of the buyers: “We are interested in your game, but will there be a Muslim figure? We don’t want to offend any Muslims.” Yeah, I’ll bet you don’t. I […]
