A little blog giving some of the latest on what we're up to with our game.

Things are going pretty well, we're up for a North-East Start-Ups Award and so far have had sales over £6000 in just about 4 months. We've also been asked to a games event in August hosted by Zatu, the UK's biggest online board games retailer. The next few months are all about prepping for Christmas. So far we've had nothing but positive reviews, but definitely have some things we wish to change when the next production run comes out.

We just need to raise the profile of the game, and make it a household name. Everyone who has played it and spoken to us has said it is more enjoyable than Trivial Pursuit, so we need to get it out there! So if you like quizzes and games or know someone who does, tell them about our game!

We didn't win one of the 2 North East Start Up Awards today, but we did get loads of really positive feedback about our pitch and coupled with some excellent meetings at the UK Games Expo we've got some great plans and ideas for the future.

The independent games retailer Travelling Man (they have stores in Newcastle, York, Leeds and Manchester) have agreed to start stocking our game, as have Zatu the UK's largest independent online games retailer.

So why isn't Strong point trivial pursuit? :)

You've missed a key word! A trivial pursuit. As for why, you'll have to read my ramblings...

Latest update for those that aren't yet bored of my Trivial nonsense! Travelling Man lost and then found the stock we sent to them. It went on sale in their stores this week and they have already sold some of them!

We applied to The Great British Pop Up, were accepted and have been selected by John Lewis to have a stand in their Newcastle City Centre store for 3 weeks in November!

We are currently waiting on a major Scale Up investment loan as the original order of games has less than a third left, so we are planning an order 3 times the size of the first one plus enough budget to fund a decent marketing campaign. We think with the right marketing we can more than triple our sales in the run up to this Christmas.

The game concept has been overwhelmingly well received by people who have bought and played it, we've had messages already asking when the first expansion pack is going to be available! Exciting and nerve-wracking!
