The team at Geek Fever Games hosted a TGC Designer Table at RetroWorld Expo. Here's what Tim Mierzejewski had to say about the event:
"Geek Fever Games was excited to represent The Game Crafter at Connecticut's second annual RetroWorld Expo! While the focus of the convention was retro video games, other forms of gaming culture were well represented, including tabletop. Our booth was situated directly at the entrance to the tabletop gaming section of the convention, surrounded by other board game and TCG vendors. This gave us great visibility and the opportunity to interact with just about everyone that was interested in board games at all!
While the other tabletop vendors were selling mass market and already widely popular games, we were the only people in our section who made our own games. This drew a great deal of attention - the simple hook of "We're indie game designers, and everything on this table is something we made!" impressed a great deal of con-goers. So many people not directly involved with the board game world had no idea it was something that a small independent group could get into. We were proud to tout The Game Crafter as an easy-to-use publisher, from printing to storefront to fulfillment.
Having a great-quality array of professionally printed games on display helped us spark up conversations with local game stores, discussing ways we can introduce our products onto their shelves. We also made contact with some larger-scale game publishers, hopefully beginning a great publishing partnership, and some marketing professionals who talked with us at length about getting our games to reach a larger audience.
As always, we were thrilled to work with The Game Crafter on getting the opportunity to visit conventions, spreading the joy of TGC and the games we make with it!"
We'd like to thank Geek Fever Games for representing The Game Crafter community at RetroWorld Expo!
