I can’t believe the games will be arriving in England in around two weeks time, and that I’m moving to London in less than that!
Have not found a place to stay yet, but I’m not too worried. I have sweet friends who will let me stay at theirs for the first couple of weeks. Besides, already the second week I think I’m off on a road trip to Universities throughout the UK. My partner in crime Björn has made a very optimistic plan on how we should visit 10 universities, meeting as many people as possible during 2 weeks. Show our games, meet potential student ambassadors and just start word of mouth. As student societies are quite big in the UK, we will try to meet and sponsor quite a few of these.
During the trip we’ll also show the game to bookshops, gift shops, as well as board game shops. Today a specialist board game distributor offered to sell The Art of Science on consignment terms, which might be an ok idea depending on the conditions. I’ve noticed that many retailers out there are very hesitant to buy from a single, small actor like us. They want to restock regularly from one distributor if possible. I can see their point, but it’s destroying our margins… haha.
Time is passing by too quickly!
