State of GTG - April 2019

Our busiest travel time of year is coming to a middle! Here's some stuff from the past month!

  1. We assisted with the launch of a Cheapass Games product! Our purchase/merger is nearly completed, and in the mean time, you can check out this cool project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cheapassgames/cheapass-games-in-bla...
  2. Christopher, Chris Burton, Craig, Jodie, Matt, Katie, and I all attended the JoCo Cruise, where we were a sponsor and helped out with logistics!
  3. Maggie and Jenn attended the GAMA trade show in Reno!
  4. Maggie, Christopher, Matt, Katie, and Chris all attended PAX East in Boston!
  5. I visited Seattle to meet with Amazon, Cheapass Games, and a few other companies.
  6. This month was full of so much travel. It is kinda off the... chain? hook? one of those.
  7. Lots of production work happened on Sleepy Hollow, Medium, Jagged Earth, and RPG books.
  8. We got pretty close to finalizing a move to a larger facility, which will actually take place next year if it happens. We're really excited about the possabilities!

Thanks for the information as always.  Any idea when we might get that new and improved site?   Does the building piece mean GtG will move their location altogether or is this just for more warehouse space?

In case anyone hasn't seen it, here's a news bit related to the building. :-D

I think you’re underselling the possible move Paul.   I certainly hope the new building works out.

Technically, we'd be moving into 1920 N. Broadway, not 2000 N. Broadway (which is two blocks away). The same developer owns both buildings and is interested in renovating them and helping to bring jobs and investment to an area that has experienced a lot of disinvestment over the past 60 years. The 1920 building is abandoned, whereas 2000 is technically occupied by very inexpensive overflow warehouse space (it is actually where we store things like excess Galactic Strike Force and Sentinel Tactics :P).

Our plan, if this all works out, is to move all of our office and warehousing into the 1920 building some time in mid-2020. That depends on us finalizing the lease in the next few weeks, the developer getting historic tax credits, and then the construction process, which will involve replacing the roof, tuckpointing the brick, replacing and repairing missing and damanged windows, putting in new electrical, pluming, fire suppression, and HVAC, repaving the parking lot, and building out the offices, among other things. We'd be the first company to move into one of their buildings in the area, but if this goes forward I'm hoping to encourage other game developers and other companies or individuals in the creative space to move to the area!

I realize which spot you are moving to and they point it out in the article.   Regardless, I hope it all goes well.

To save folks a link, here's the blurb:

"As the Business Journal reported, 1920 North Broadway will be renovated and turned into office and warehouse space for Greater than Games. That company is moving from the suburbs to this area. The cost of renovation of 1920 North Broadway is projected to be $5 Million and is also being done by Blackline."

The Business Journal article is paywalled, though.

Cool. And now I know what tuckpointing bricks is!

Do you guys ever have months where you aren't crazy busy?

Kudos to you guys for being a part of such a big urban renovation project.  It's a huge issue for so many cities right now, so hopefully it'll be part of a bigger wave in St. Louis.

@Cult of Gloom  

Nope, not really. Actually March & April are generally are least busy months of the year!

@PlatinumWarlock

I hope so too!
