I’m a relatively new player (started with PS, then splurged on the full sets of both Yomi and Codex). I’m enjoying every bit of it. I really like the streamlined mechanics coupled with highly tested balance, making it interesting for both casual and competitive play.
I’m not much of an online game player (although I appreciate that there is that option for those who want it). What I’m trying to do is get folks at my friendly local game store (FLGS) interested in these games. They mostly love the Fantasy Flight LCGs (Netrunner, LotR, Arkham Horror, etc.) so I know they would also enjoy these Sirlin games.
However, I feel weird for pushing these games since the store doesn’t sell them. Before buying the Codex and Yomi sets, I contacted Sirlin Games to see about getting them through my FLGS so I could support them, and the reply was that they don’t offer a discounted price to stores. I think he meant only those two products (i.e. the full sets), but I’m not sure.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get players hooked on these games while still being able to support the FLGS, or are they only available through Sirlin Games? If they are available through FLGS, will the store make any profit? In other words, will the store be purchasing them for the exact price they are available to us (retail)?
Thanks, and happy playing!
