Bryan Pope and Sean McCoy traveled to Fort Wayne, Indiana for the release of Mage Wars last weekend! We had an awesome time talking to our retailer friends, as well as getting to hang with our awesome sales reps over at Alliance Distribution! It was a full weekend of gaming, grub, and getting to know some of our most loyal fans! Read more to see some more pictures!
The weather was an amazing 60 degrees and sunny in Fort Wayne – a vast improvement over the 100+ days we had been seeing in Texas recently. Fort Wayne was a nice little vacation from the sweltering days, and the pre-release stress we had back home! But it wasn’t all fun and games, we had several huge meetings with our Organized Play team, fine tuning details for our awesome OP campaign starting in just under a month!
Saturday was all about the exhibit hall. We showcased the game to several new retailers, and then chatted about our post-release plans with our already loyal fans. We passed out t-shirts, posters, hats, all kinds of great swag! We had a nice little break in the middle when someone pulled the fire alarm in the middle of the day and we had a ten minute break to file outside – it was like being back in school, fire drills and all.
Bryan and I even got a chance to hang out with our friends over at TCB Games, and then even got to stop by Top Shelf Games to hang out and play a little before we left town. It was a great trip and our friends at Alliance were great hosts, they told us to keep up the good work and we certainly will. I can’t wait to go back!
