IGA to Sponsor Unrivaled Tournament Series

The Indie Game Alliance is proud to announce our partnership with Unrivaled, a nationwide series of tabletop tournaments with a $250,000 prize pool taking place in over 200 retail establishments. The six featured games for 2017 include two IGA member games: Nevermore from Smirk & Dagger Games and Villagers and Villains from Studio 9 Games.

Unrivaled is looking for more retailers to sign up to host tournaments, and there’s goodies in it for you if you do! Plus, if a tournament winner qualifies in your store, they will win $10,000, and so will you!  Check out what ICv2 had to say about Unrivaled here.

Qualifier tournaments begin in April, so time is of the essence! Of course, if you just want to decimate your competition and win the tournament yourself, find the closest host store and prepare for tabletop dominance!

Survey Editor Issues Resolved

We’ve received reports that the feedback survey editor had a few glitches that were affecting some users. We’ve done some debugging and are fairly confident we’ve corrected all the issues. Please let us know if you find any more! We’ve also added the option to delete a question, so long as it hasn’t yet been answered.

For those of you who don’t know what we’re talking about, IGA Pro members get access to a custom feedback survey editor that lets you create full-featured surveys, including multiple choice and free-text entry questions, using a simple drag-and-drop editor. The resultant surveys are mobile-friendly and easy, and we provide a QR code generator to help players get to the survey quickly and easily. The survey module is a critical component of IGA’s playtesting offering.

We encourage Minions to use these QR codes as well to help gather feedback for our members!

IGA is proud to sponsor the Connecticut Festival of Indie Games!

The Indie Game Alliance is announcing today that we’re partnering with IGA member Geek Fever Games to sponsor their indie-focused convention, the Connecticut Festival of Indie Games! As CTFIG’s newest annual sponsor, you can look for an IGA presence and materials throughout the convention.

Under the terms of our partnership, IGA members and Minions will receive 20% off of booth and attendee registration, meaning you can score a booth for the show for just $16! Visit our Member Discounts area to learn about the program and obtain a coupon code.

IGA Warehouse Upgrade Completed!

We just finished a move to our new warehouse facilities over the weekend! Our new space is twice as large as our previous storage facility, so we don’t have to be quite so nervous to take on larger quantities of games. This desperately needed to happen in order to accommodate the expected influx of stock in advance of Gen Con and our other summer shows. Huge thanks to the members of our team who helped with the move at both locations, and also assisted with the physical inventory we undertook as part of the process.

If you’ve got a package en route to us, don’t worry, we’ll still get it! We sadly can’t receive incoming mail directly at the warehouse site, so our shipping address is an offsite holding facility and therefore didn’t need to change.

Next up in our bid to improve our stock handling power: saving up for a box truck!
