We are looking at trying out something new this year – specifically, we are looking to go to The Spiel (Essen) 2014. We looked at this once before and just couldn’t see how to make the maths work back then (over 4 years ago); but we are hoping that we’ve now grown sufficiently that we have the customer base to make it work. On that note, we have a few questions for our customers.
1) Are you interested in having board games brought back from Essen direct?
2) Would you preference be for a direct (air) shipment which would be add approximately 30-40% on the base cost of the game or a slower freight shipment that would only add 15-20%? The difference would be shipments arriving in a few weeks to a few months.
3) Excluding shipping, how much would you be willing to pay? MSRP, MSRP + 10% / 20% / etc?
The more you can let us know about your opinions on this, the better. We are looking at potentially taking funds / pre-orders before the event to help with cash flow and will likely do a dedicated ‘tell us what you want’ post closer to the date.
