As I briefly mentioned in the original launch announcement for Jump Gate, I will be giving away a free copy of the game through a contest on my website. I wanted to give a bit more information about that here.

On Wednesday, April 21st, I will randomly draw a winner from everyone who has registered for the give-away and send them a full copy of Jump Gate (plus a little extra bonus). To register for the contest, you need to first sign-up a user account on my website (yes, a blatant attempt to increase the number of registered users on my site), and then follow the instructions on the contest page.

I am already enjoying the entry comments from those who have registered so far ... you have a week and a couple days left to join in the fun.

Thanks,
-Matt

Hey Matt, have you considered sending review copies to a few podcasts (i.e., Dice Tower, Game On, etc.) and holding a contest through those guys? Might be an additional way to get the word out.

Good advice ... Review copies are already on the way to Mr. Drake, Mr. Vassel, and Mr. McCallion.

I'm starting there and will see how it goes from that point.

Got another idea for you:

How about doing an intro video to the game and its rules? I've always thought that game companies should do more of this...

That's a really good suggestion. Not sure how I would go about making a video ... but enough folks are doing it that I should be able to google around for the right resources.

Matt,

Did you try with BGG so that they will stick your post on the main page?

No ... I did not do anything special with BGG ... but it was in the main page forum posts lists for the first couple days.

This weekend, I started playing around with Microsoft Movie Maker ... and then started cobbling together something that may become an overview video.

So, thanks again for the suggestion, Ted ... I hope to have something posted in the next couple of days.

Duncan has won a special one-of-a-kind copy of Jump Gate by registering for the Launch Celebration Give-Away contest at my website.

In addition to what you normally get when you buy Jump Gate from TheGameCrafter.com, the special copy also includes a box with color cover artwork, color printed rules, and 6 rubber spacecraft miniatures. (Should have pictures up at my website sometime tonight.)

Enjoy the game, Duncan!

-Matt
