The Hunt Master prototypes have arrived!

July 17th, 2017:

“THE PROTOTYPE ARRIVED!  Last Friday, I restlessly watched the online tracking information until I saw that my package had finally arrived at my home.  My wonderful wife swiftly transported the precious cargo to me at The Comic Monstore, where we marveled at the two copies of the game (one for me and one for Elf).  ‘IT’S ALIVE!  IT’S ALIVE!’  Yeah, I guess I felt a little like Dr. Frankenstein watching his creation come to life.  Overall, I am very pleased with Game Crafter‘s work, but I realized that some of the cards printed a bit darker than I’d like.  I can fix that, though.

What’s the next step?  Well, I’m kinda figuring things out as I go because I’ve never published a game before.  I have found the articles by James Mathe, an entrepreneur, game designer, and publisher, to be very helpful.  After making some minor adjustments, I plan to print a few more copies of the game with Game Crafter.  I will send those out to reviewers and visit my gaming distributors.  I’m hoping that being a customer for 14 years will help me get a foot in the door with distribution.  A Kickstarter campaign is also on the agenda.

I would like to give a huge “THANK YOU” to my friends that have been supportive of this project.  Some of you have even mentioned wanting one of the prototypes.  Sorry, there are only two of those. However, it is possible for me to order a few extra copies from Game Crafter when I place the order for the reviewers.  Unfortunately, printing with Game Crafter (an American, print on demand company) is a little more pricey than printing a large print run in China.  Soon, I will make an announcement about how YOU can get a very limited First Printing, American made, personalized copy of the game months before it’s official release.

Ebay Store and Online Store (Square)

We are working on our online store through Square.  It’s a work in progress.  Because of our large inventory, we’ll be adding to it often throughout the year.  Eventually, we’ll add shipping options, but at least it will give you an idea of the wide variety of merchandise you will find at The Comic Monstore.
