2020 FREE RPG Day update from the Gaming Days team:
We hope that everyone is navigating the current situation as best they can for their business and that you are safe and healthy while making plans for a comeback. In case you missed it, we pushed the date back to July 25th. This is the best date we could come up with for everyone involved where we felt it still has maximum value to participating stores and publishers.
We also extended the deadline for sign ups. The new deadline is June 15th. Along with that extension we decided to keep the kit prices at our “early bird” pricing ($119 per kit) and to offer a discount if you buy 3 kits. The 3 Kit special price is $300. If you have already paid for kits and would like to take advantage of this new pricing model feel free to reach out Rob@gamingdaysllc.com. We will issue a refund on the previous order and process the new order with the change in quantities. This promotion is only for multiples of 3. The link to order kits can be found at freerpgday.com/retailers.
We are excited about the lineup of products and participating publishers. We will start showing off kit contents soon and are confident this is the best kit ever produced for FRPG Day!
Along with the kit, any retailers that participate will be able to take advantage of a preload and reload promotion through our fulfillment partners at Alliance Distribution. This is going to be discounted pricing on core products from the publishers participating in the kit this year. We wanted to take the old “Uber” kits and be able to let people participating do so ‘a la carte’ based on what they wanted for product mix rather than forcing a mix that might not fit your store. Details on those products will be communicated to retail participants.
We realize that this event is not going to have the same sort of in-store activity impact that it would have under normal circumstances. However, we feel strongly that the event is still important to consumers, stores and publishers. In fact, we feel like it can be a rallying cry for retail mid-summer as we all try to comeback from a difficult spring. We encourage participants to be creative regarding the use of the contents in the kit. We still ask that no one sell the contents but using them as sales drivers for people purchasing from your store is certainly an option.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
