Game Discussion / Support Your FLGS
January 14, 2021, 10:33:20 PM
I have always loved Friendly Local Game Stores. I suspect I never would have run my own game sessions without having stumbled into a FLGS a year or so after my initial exposure to D&D.

For my Master's thesis I visited just over 50 game and comic stores in the Greater Toronto Area. With many stores across Canada limited to curbside pick-up only once again, I wanted to come up with a way to support FLGS here in Canada.

So . . . for all of January, 20% all sales (both Print&PDF, and PDF only) from the CDG Marketplace go to support a Canadian FLGS of the customer's choosing - specified on checkout.

I hope some of you will use this to support your local game store, and I hope you find other ways to support your local store as well. I'd love to hear about what you are doing.

If you happen to be a publisher, and you are interested in getting you titles up on the CDG Marketplace, please get in touch! We expect to have numerous titles added throughout the month.

The CDG Marketplace is a small Canadian focused indie RPG marketplace that sells to consumers, to retailers, and normally offers a ship to store option to many FLGS. If a customer doesn't indicate a specific retailer they wish to support during the support your FLGS promotion this January, the 20% will be distributed among the many retailers who have purchased from us in the past.

I'd appreciate your thoughts, and questions!

If this is better in a different part of the Forum, please let me know.
I run a small indie RPG marketplace.

If you happen to be a roleplaying game designer or publisher, I'd love to hear from you. The Compose Dream Games RPG Marketplace takes only 10% (after transaction processing) and sells both to consumers and to local game stores. We sell both Print & PDF.

You can check out the marketplace here

And contact me if you'd like to learn more. In case I am not checking back here regularly.

We have designers from BC, AB, ON and QC. I'd love to have some from SK. (Family farm out here, but I grew up and now live in Ottawa.)

Thanks Lori, this has been fixed.
Role Playing Games / A Canadian RPG Marketplace

Thought I would post in the general discussion, but if there is a better place, feel free to move it.

I recently started a Canadian RPG Marketplace. As such we are especially interested in connecting with and carrying Canadian designers books and PDFs.

We're also very interested in connecting with and supporting FLGS. Retailers can order directly from us, but we also allow direct customers to get discounted shipping to have books shipped to a retailer for pickup. The customer gets discounted shipping, and the retailer gets more foot traffic and a small credit to order more books from us.

We just started a little over a month ago. We don't have any Saskatchewan based designers or FLGS on board yet, and this seemed like a natural place to reach out.

A little about me:
I have roots in Saskatchewan, but live in Ontario. All my father's side of the family is out there, as is the family farm. I'm the designer of Simple Superheroes: The Roleplaying Game of Infinite Powers and Possibilities.
I'll be out in Saskatchewan this August - September and will be looking for events then.
