Neat! Great to find others here with Ravensburger Game Inventor Days too! They are so friendly and honest that really glad I got the chance to pitch even thought they passed.
Summary of my notes in case it helps anyone later on 😛
FYI, just had my Ravensburger pitch! Didn’t get to the next round but it was lotsa fun as they were so helpful and open
Here’s my summary, in case you were curious
Pitched my game and they were interested in the theme, but thought there might be a bit too much game to get the correct feel of contentedness across, so all up a pass from them.
I had a similar view point in part, so made sense but was great to hear from someone in the industry too! It’s so cool that they can kinda get the gist of the game with a simple pitch, but really glad I did it.
Few tips they gave me were:
– that gateway+ is a much harder sell for the core market that Ravensburger sells to.
– GenCon is coming up and may be some pitch opportunities
– Pegasus Designer coming up for other pitch opportunities too
– When play testing always enquire about the replay value, if 3/4 of your testers would like to play the game again then it’s a pretty good fit for Ravensburger
Also enjoyed the quote
“We know not what we want, but when we see it we know it.”
First pitch ever done, so super relieved and now to wait for that adrenaline to die down
