|10:00 am - Sigh|
Yesterday I calculated how much money Interactivities Ink lost, not including the income from selling the overstock to a liquidator or the expenses of shows and stuff, just lost on printing costs/advertising vs. sales.
I also calculated how much I spent in my week in California, not including airfare.
Guess which was more. Just guess.
It is heartening to know that in this day of POD and RPG Now, I probably could make saleable LARP books with no real overhead and maybe even turn a profit on them. But I'm not sure I want to work on it. I've seen how much my games on The Game Crafter are selling with no real advertising. (I sell a game a month on average, which is actually pretty damn good for no advertising. I wish I knew who was buying them and why, though.)

If it's any consolation, my wife and I dropped about $2,000 on our Intercon K experience, including rental car, hotel (the suite was only one night, thankfully), airfare, penalties for switching flights, ice cream social, breakfast for players, and whatever else I'm forgetting.
Wait, that's not consolation, that's misery loves company. ;-)

I just bought Hamlet! through Gamecrafter. I deeply enjoyed the game back in ... 2007? as one of two or three instances of Card Shark / Thespis
I bought it once upon a time through Interactivities Ink because I was a hypertext and English Lit nerd. I played it once or twice with friends and my then-fiancee. I've just bought it again because I 'lent' it to someone and years later I have no idea who that was. I want it again, to try to make an officially Card Shark version of the game. :D Edited at 2017-02-22 04:07 am (UTC)
