Our retailer recovery booster pack debuts. Also, Gen Con Online!

It’s almost our favorite time of year again, when we celebrate our industry at the Best Four Days in Gaming: Gen Con! Sadly, COVID-19 has cancelled Gen Con in person, but we’re excited about Gen Con Online, which is happening at the end of the month. Signups for our panels just went live on Monday. All our events are free, as is the convention registration. We’ll talk about Gen Con in greater detail below, but first we want to tell you about something we want to do for your retailer, if they’re in the continental U.S. We would appreciate you telling them about it!

More than $1000 in free games for our US friendly local game stores in our Recovery Booster Pack!

More than $1000 in free games for our US friendly local game stores in our Recovery Booster Pack!
It’s been a brutal year for our friends in the tabletop game store community. Most shut down due to the health emergency and distribution problems, and then when some reopened, they had to close again. Lone Shark Games wants to help our Friendly Local Game Stores recover as quickly as possible. To help, we put together this Recovery Booster Pack with the hopes that the sales of this product will help in the recovery of the store in your neighborhood. Please tell your local retailer that they can apply for this Recovery Booster Pack today. Here’s what’s in it:

We want to be clear what this is for and what it isn’t for. It’s designed to spur sales for physical stores at or in conjunction with their locations, or in promotions for those locations. It is not for online sales or discounters. We are making this available to encourage physical game stores to be vital and as healthy as possible. Help us make this work by sharing it with your local store!

Here’s some fine print that your store should know before applying.

  • All product is provided free of charge to each local game store with a physical store location in the contiguous United States only.
  • Each store is responsible for a flat fee of $100 for shipping and handling, and must provide a resale certificate.
  • Each store location is limited to one Recovery Booster Pack. (So a store chain with three locations could get three packs.)
  • This promotion is intended for local sales and is not intended for online sales.
  • The packs are available while supplies last, and Lone Shark Games reserves the right to reject any application for any reason.

As social distancing has taken hold, we’ve gotten a lot of requests for gift cards over the last couple months. So we made some available. If you want to get the special shark-loving gamer or puzzler in your life something, but you don’t know what they want, you can get a gift card for $10, $25, $50, or $100 from our store. Whatever size gift you need, we’ve got it for you.

Gift cards are delivered by email and contain instructions to redeem them at checkout. Our gift cards have no additional processing fees. Get a gift card for your favorite friend today!

Time to register for Gen Con Online!

We are so stoked for Gen Con Online that we just used the word “stoked” for the first time in a couple decades. The Best Four Days in Gaming might just be the biggest convention ever, because everyone can attend. For free.

Lone Shark has a “booth” at the convention, which runs from July 30 to August 2. You can visit it by entering the interactive exhibit hall and finding us in the directory. You can talk to us about our upcoming games and see what’s new.

Plus, of course we’re running some great panels and demos. We encourage you to get your free badge and click these links to register if you want to be a part of these fun events. Which, as it turns out, are also free.

You can submit questions for all of these panels by going to our Talk site and pulling down to “I have a question.” Be sure to mention which panel it’s for!

See you virtually at Gen Con Online! Woo!

Thanks for supporting our games, and especially for supporting your friendly local game stores. We love our friends in retail, and we hope they come roaring back when it’s safe to do so. Meantime, let’s give them some love. Thanks!

The Sharks
