Year in Review – Part 2

If you haven’t already, check out Part 1.

This is Part 2, in our series of digging into our data. It took us some time to put this together. The current situation gave us an opportunity to spend time putting this together. In this post, we dive deeper into games sold and their publishers, and the timeframe being used for all the analysis, is April ’19 to March ’20.

Covid Diaries #1

Loved Co-Ops? Well, we’re all playing one now…

Hey Folks!

First off, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe at home and doing well during these unprecedented times. What is it now, week 109,242? Well, we feel it as much as you do.

It’s been a while since we reached out, and, given that the light at the end of the tunnel is not yet in sight (we’ll get there though, hang in there!), we thought we’d reach out to say hi and check in on you. We’ve missed your regular emails, chats, and countless Whatsapp messages!

By God’s grace, we at BGC are well too. We’ve been able to work from home and remain indoors, and hence consider ourselves privileged. As for operations, since we’re based out of Pune, which is now a “hot zone”, we are not able to dispatch any orders, and don’t have an ETA on when we will be able to do so.

If you have an order that is pending dispatch and would like to cancel, please send us an email, and we will refund the order. If you had a pre-order that was estimated to be delivered in April or May, those are delayed too, with no current ETA. We’ll reach out to you as soon as we have an update on either of these. Though, if you can wait, we’d appreciate if you don’t cancel, it helps support us and keep us operational.

We’re still accepting orders on our website though, with shipments going out as soon as the lockdown in Maharashtra lifts. Given the impact this virus has had, we’re committing to contributing 5% of our online sales for the month of April and May to Covid-19 related NGOs. We’re still working out the logistics of this, more updates to follow.

Just because we’re locked down though, doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy. This situation has given us the opportunity to work on quite a few projects that we had in the pipeline, that we hope to share with you soon.

Finally, we sincerely hope we can get to the other side of this as soon and as safely as we can. Like Moiz likes to say, whether you like’em or not, we’re all kinda playing Pandemic the Co-Op. Stay indoors (if you can), stay safe!

– Team BGC

P.S. Just because you can’t meet your board gaming buds, doesn’t mean you can’t game. We’ve put together a list of board games you can play online. Check them out!
