It has been an extra long time – 10 days – since the last Weekly Update posted early on Tuesday, March 18th. In some ways a lot has happened since then.
Wayne and the GAMA Trade Show
The reason the previous Update was posted early was that Wayne had to leave for Las Vegas to represent Palladium Books at the GAMA Trade Show. He was met by long-time Palladium helper and pal, Joe Bergmans, who served as local native guide and Palladium Representative. Together, Wayne and Joe talked to retailers about upcoming product releases and the new releases stores could expect in the Spring and Summer. The greatest interest was in the long-awaited Rifts® titles and, of course, Robotech® RPG Tactics™. Retailers was delighted with the prototypes on hand, and we ourselves were surprised to have John at Ninja Division drop off four new factory prototypes, including the Mk.II Monster, one of my personal favorites. They looked great and were a nice addition to the display. Like everyone else, retailers are anxiously awaiting the initial release of Robotech® RPG Tactics™. (Us too.) When not at the trade show, Wayne and Joe enjoyed some of the local cuisine, including a phenomenal sushi restaurant. Wayne left Tuesday afternoon and arrived back at the Palladium office on Friday afternoon looking rather worn out.
