Title: LGS would like to start carrying indie games
Post by: coffeestain on September 21, 2005, 04:59:30 AM
Hello,

After a few months of fighting the good fight at my local game store, Pegasus Games in Madison, WI, they've decided they'd really like to start an indie game section and asked me for my help in gathering some information.  With great enthusiasm, I've agreed.

The first thing I've been asked to do is compile a list of games/publishers who offer product in hard-copy and for a retailer discount.  I believe they also sell on consignment and, though I haven't been asked to pursue that avenue yet, I'll also open this thread to see if anyone is interested in participating with that model.  I can get more details if that's the case.

So please let me know, either here or via PM, if you'd like to have your game stocked in this store.  The information I'll need will be the game titles, contact information, and whether you'd be willing to provide a retailer discount or are interested in consignment.  I'll forward the information on to the purchaser at Pegasus and have him get in touch with you.

Thanks,

Daniel

Daniel,

Julie (JRS here on the Forge) can send you a pdf of publishers who participated in the GenCon booth that lists the games they produce and their retailer terms. I recommend a private message to her.

Paul

Hi Daniel,

Good job. Though this does not surprise me. Pegasus games is one of the better game stores out there. They use to sell our products when they could get them through their distributors and we have been talking with Lori there about ordering them direct. I guess I really should follow up on that again. :) She already has our contact info and terms sheet, but if you want to give her our info again, its:
