Quote from: Ron Edwards on July 16, 2008, 10:03:22 AMWhat doesn't seem to have been tried is to offer a low-budget book version and a spiffy shiny version as an ongoing policy. Since the same principle works as an ongoing policy for PDF/book, it seems a decent option for books too.
Quote from: Double King on July 21, 2008, 11:31:41 AMCould this / Should this be done at Cons? I don't know - and don't presume to. I wonder if it's prudent to mark down units at conventions because of the audience, competition and incentive to drive volume.
Quote from: GreatWolf on July 16, 2008, 11:33:35 AMEvil Hat did something similar to this with its hard-cover and soft-cover editions of Spirit of the Century. I'd be interested to hear from Fred how this affected sales.
Quote from: iago on July 21, 2008, 04:46:19 PMCould you ask something more specific about that? I'm having trouble figuring out where to start with an answer.
Quote from: GreatWolf on July 21, 2008, 05:47:11 PMAs I recall, Evil Hat did a hard-cover and soft-cover release of Spirit of the Century. I'm curious about the following:1) Did having two versions seem to drive up sales at all?2) What was fan feedback about the two versions?3) What other effects did having two versions have on the Spirit of the Century line?4) Was this a successful experiment for you? How so?5) Would you release other Evil Hat games in a similar way? Why or why not?
