So very figuring out Victoriana at the moment. At present I’m really pleased with how we’re doing. Something I’ve realised is that if you tally up everything you spend on a game, it’s totally impossible to break even. Seriously, if it’s not a labour of love, then you’ve not got a chance. The rules are really shaping up and the background is turning out nicely. A website is being designed as we speak and a web domain has been bought. I’m waiting for the chap from Hebden Hey getting back to me confirming free weekends. We’re looking at either 2-4 September or the 23-25 of September at the moment. Neither of which have other games on them. There’s no way of picking a date that doesn’t have something on it, it’s simply impossible. I would hope that people would not take it personally if the game is on an important date for them. It isn’t personal.
One thing I’ve found dreadfully hard is pricing. Now I know how much the game is going to cost, but I’m curious what people would expect to pay for an indoor accommodation, fully catered (Friday Dinner, Saturday Breakfast, Saturday Elevenses, Saturday Luncheon, Saturday High Tea, Saturday Roast Dinner, Saturday Supper, Sunday Breakfast and Sunday Elevenses), 24 hour time in game.
Whatever people say is not going to affect the prices we charge so much as allow us to know that we’re on the ball with what we’re charging.
And yes, that is a lot of food. Looking forward to it.
