Last month, after we finished our playtesting, we were looking for reviewers, bloggers and YouTubers who will play our game and help us spread the word. Now we have finished packaging and sending the “Game of Hunt” to reviewers.
Packaging was a whole story in itself because we decided to reuse the boxes which we already had in our storage (from other board games, shoes and all other stuff). Let’s reuse things and make less waste, right? So, we did a lot of cutting and taping these days. :))) And you know, a box from Anachrony was perfect for making two boxes with our games.
Now our game has travelled to more countries than we have! And to more States in the US also. I’ve never been to the US, Alex has been only once. We’ve sent “Game of Hunt” to 10 states already.
During sending the games to reviewers you understand how big and different the world is. Not that you didn’t know that before, but here you got an extra example. Like postcodes. Here in Europe, we use just numbers. In the US, they use numbers + two letters for the name of the state. And in Hong Kong, they do not use postcodes at all.
And addresses! In Europe, they have the same system: first the street name, then the number of the house + apartment number. In the US, sometimes they use the street name first, sometimes the number of the house first. But the craziest thing which we have seen was an address in Utah in the US where they use a kind of coordinate system. So the address was 0000W 0000N (where instead of 0 was other numbers). I can imagine how easy it is for kids in Utah to learn the coordinates. And how strange our addresses are for them with all different and strange street names :)))
Do you know, is it only in Utah they use this coordinate like address system? Have you ever seen any unusual addresses?
