Belfort Promo Wagon Commences!

We’re starting the promotional campaign for Belfort! The artist for the game, Josh Cappel, has made up these small ads that take one of the components of the game and then has a interesting or funny saying attached to it. We’re expecting a new one to be posted every week until the game launches this summer!

If you want to see all the images as they come then you can do one of two things:

1) Register on www.boardgamegeek.com and then subscribe to Belfort (an option on the right hand side of the screen).  Then, every time you log into boardgamegeek.com you will be told if there has been any updates with Belfort!

2) Go to Facebook and add Belfort as a friend! We’ll be sharing the images on Facebook shortly after they launch on boardgamegeek.com.

If you’re interested in helping out, then you can click the green ‘thumbs-up’ icon near the image when you’re on boardgamegeek.com. If enough people ‘thumb’ it then the picture gets promoted to the front page of boardgamegeek.com. This helps with awareness of the game even more! The Euro Game market is a crowded scene, so anything we can do to stand out we’ll try it!

Here’s the link to the first image. I’ve included the first image in this post – but head on over to boardgamegeek.com and give it a thumb (and yes, you do have to register once in order to thumb – but I’ll be asking you to thumb and rate more of our games in the future – so you might as well register now!  Hey – while you’re there, why not write up a quick review of Train of Thought – or at least give it a rating? I’m not asking for you to stuff the ballots – but just for you to rate it whatever you think it’s worth!).

Train of Thought sent to Printers!

Train of Thought box artWell today is the day that Train of Thought was sent to the printers in good ole China!  I’m curious about the turnaround time on how long it takes to print, and if Tasty Minstrel gets a sample to approve, and then shipped back to the US.  They are trying hard to ensure we have some in time for the convention we’re all going to in November in Dallas.

Also – with its own Facebook page now, we’re looking to ramp up the reviews from anyone that has playtested this game.  So if you’ve played it and enjoyed it, then please visit the Facebook page for Train of Thought and add it to the Reviews section.  There are already 3 reviews posted if you’re interested in reading what other people are saying (and 2 of them aren’t related to, or friends of, either Sen or myself!).
