In all the work we’ve been doing in the last 3 weeks, we have neglected to update you all here as well.
First the big news, we funded! Tavern Fame ended up with a total funding amount of $19578. That’s over 200% of our intended goal and Aaron and I could not be happier. It’s allowed us to increase our print run and get the ball rolling on our next game.
WinGo, our manufacturers over in China, have already started getting the materials together to start production. The Kickstarter funds should be hitting us in the next week or so and we will get the manufacturing paid for and well on its way.
If you have been following the Kickstarter updates, you would see that while we were in Melbourne, we ended up make a deal with the great guys at Next Level Games. They will be distributing Tavern Fame in Victoria so if you have a friendly local gaming store down there interested in getting some copies to sell, send them Next Level’s way.
For the last week, I’ve been working on our very own online store that will both sell and distribute. We’re currently in final testing so once I’m comfortable that it will be mostly-error free, we’ll release it to the public so you will be able to order a copy of Tavern Fame if you missed out on the Kickstarter project.
The Next Game
Because we’re sitting in this holding pattern while we wait for the Kickstarter funding, we’ve started hunting down artists for our next game. The schedule we put out in the very first blog post has been completely thrown out the window because we had no idea Tavern Fame would do so well. Keep an eye out on our Facebook Page and here on the blog for the announcement in the coming months.
Finally, we need to give a few thank yous out to some friends who helped with Tavern Fame. Thanks to my wife Jennah and our good friend Chris. These two came with us to Sydney and Melbourne during the conventions and worked their butts off to show the game to any convention goers that Aaron and I couldn’t meet. Thanks to Aaron’s partner Abi for keeping him sane over the Kickstarter period. Thanks to The Loot Room for inviting us to promote the game. And a big thanks to all of you who supported the campaign or played the game at a meetup, event or even just with friends. By spreading the word of Tavern fame, we would not have been able to reach the funding goal that we did.
