May 4, 2018: Hong Kong Trip!!!

It's time to prepare for another trip to Hong Kong and to visit our factories in China. I'm joining David Blanchard, our GPI rep, for a grand factory tour later this month. David and I will hit the ground running and take multiple drives into China. Why? To check progress on the Ogre Miniatures Battle Box, oversee the latest manufacturing and assembly work on the Munchkin Collectible Card Game expansions, and stay on top of planning for the rest of 2018 and on into 2019.

Every single factory visit in the past has led to new knowledge, uncovering tricks we didn't know were possible, and improved our manufacturing relationships and the end products. It'll be a whirlwind - then it's back to assisting the marketing team with the launch of The Desolation of Blarg while preparing for Origins.

I'll try to snap pics and video while in China, just as I've done before. Check out last year's factory tour video if you want an idea of what it's like to watch games being made.
