posted in: Podcasts | 0

The round table is back!

John Coviello and Gary Sproul join me to discuss the recent changes in the gaming industry and their impact on the business.

We go over Game Workshop changing their policy about online shopping carts, minimum advertised prices, and organized play changes made by Wizards of the coast in the past few days. We also talk about the recent influx of counterfeit product hitting the market and the impact on publishers and retailers alike.
