It's been awhile....
It's been awhile since we posted last and thus, we've already fell victim to our own ambition. It's easy for us to get lost in the sea of exciting things happening around Game On. Just this past month, we have done all kinds of awesome events, remodels, new products and so much more that we should have been posting about it right here, but alas, we were so busy doing it, we barely had a chance to write about it before moving onto the next thing. This is not what we wanted to happen as we drove towards our remodeled website - we wanted it to have new articles, videos and photos weekly!
So where does that put us now? In about the same boat actually, as we are gearing up for another crazy ambitious schedule of events and so much more with our stores. We are excited to announce a new board game of the month here on the website soon, as we've already been talking about CodeNames as our Game of the Month for March in stores for the past week. We are even more thrilled to talk about our upcoming trip to Las Vegas where we will attend a retailer only show about upcoming board games, card games and more tabletop goodness! We hope to do some video coverage and articles to post and share with you as we learn about cool new products for the first time! I pledge to do better, to bring more content to you right here. I pledge to get holes in our coverage fixed and to provide a much better source of information right here at GameOnGames.com as soon as possible. It will most definitely not be easy and we will probably miss another week somehow, someway but we will get this process down and we will be a fantastic source of news and information for you!
To bring you up to speed, let's talk about what we've been doing this past month. First, we had to do inventory and taxes. This was a large burden that was amplified by the fact that we are now doing three stores instead of two. It derailed us for a bit and was the least fun part of our month. Second, we had events! Tons of events were on the schedule and especially our Fantasy Flight Games Store Championships which took up all weekend for three weekends in a row! Many of us traveled between stores to hit up as many of these events as we could which left us with full weekends and not a lot of extra time. In between those, we had our regular scheduled events plus special prerelease events for Force of Will Trading Card Game, game day events for Magic the Gathering and many more! We officially launched our Comic Book League in our McCook store and hope to be reporting soon from that as it takes off. I also took time to remodel the McCook store with a brand new wall that was desperately needed for our increasing amount of product. At the same time, we got a camera mounted on our ceiling looking down onto our game tables so we can begin streaming our events through Twitch. The stream was tested the other night and we hope to have this up and running weekly by the end of March! All in all, we've been busy having fun and improving the stores through events, updates and new initiatives.
We hope you'll like the up coming schedule of events and the new improvements while we work towards making more time to reflect and post about everything going on. I know we've got some great stuff planned for content revolving around Heroclix, Force of Will, Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, DiceMasters and our games of the month, so hang on and keep checking the website! As always, stop in and see us, we'd love to have you come game with us!
