The Mage Wars team traveled to Las Vegas this year from March 12-16 to participate in the 2012 GAMA tradeshow! We had a wonderful time, demoing Mage Wars for hundreds of amazing retailers from across the country.
We had the honor of giving a short presentation on Mage Wars to over 500 different retailers at the GAMA opening night dinner! We were up on stage with some of the biggest game companies in the industry, getting a chance to talk about our vision for the future of Mage Wars. We shared some of our beautiful artwork, a brief summary of gameplay, and our plans for the exciting story we’re building in the World of Etheria!
We gave out plenty of posters at our booth, and spent plenty of time talking to retailers about how Mage Wars would best sell in their stores. Some retailers even stopped by to tell us that since Gencon and Origins in 2011, they’ve had plenty of fans coming in their store regularly to ask if Mage Wars had come out yet! They wanted to know what all the buzz was about.
We also go to demo the game on Wednesday during the GTS opening gaming night. A couple of guys were so excited to play that they wouldn’t even sit down during the entire game! We had a wonderful time swapping stories with the retailers about the history and development of Mage Wars, along with our plans for the future.
Whether it was meeting our amazing playtesters for breakfast, or sharing dinner with some new retailer friends, GTS was a lot of fun and a huge success! We at the Mage Wars team can’t wait to go back next year!
