I have a friend who manages the Coles Book Store in Fairview Mall, Toronto asked if we’d like to sell Train of Thought on consignment at his store. We floated it by Michael Mindes at Tasty Minstrel Games to see what he thought. He agreed that it would be a good idea, but to do consignment from the US to Canada was a lot of effort and custom costs. So Sen took it upon himself to order some copies direct from Michael and complete the consignment deal with my friend in Toronto.
Sen went in on the weekend and showed the manager the game and how to play it and left a dozen or so copies of the game. The manager said he would try to get a game in with some of the managers from other Coles stores.
We’ve had people bugging us about where they could find our game, and some of them have never been to a game store and didn’t even know they existed. Hopefully this deal with Coles will be the first tiny step towards Coles, Chapters, Indigo and even Borders in the US carry the game by the holiday time this year!
