These past two years were a wild time for a lot of us. Whether you are a former, current, or future customer, we wanted to use this time to give you an update on our company. We covered all this in greater detail, by the way, in the AMA:
2019 was a great year. We went to more conventions, had more sales, and introduced new designs like the 5×5 Game Table and our Storage Benches. We began building tables for our Express Program. We ended on a high note, eager for the new year.
2020 Blossoms! and Weeds
We were presented amazing opportunities for growth in 2020. We hired additional staff and launched the Express Program for select table designs. These tables only need your color of fabric in the play area and final quality control checks before shipping, cutting the order time from six months to two weeks on average! They made a lot of quarantined families happy.
The year 2020 presented many challenges in the form of truck driver shortages, delivery issues, COVID illnesses, COVID precautions, schools closed, state borders closed, ports closed, cancelled conventions, and a transition to working from home.
One of the biggest challenges of 2020 included rising prices on everything. Materials, wood, fabric—even cup holders! But during that time, we made the choice not to raise our prices; people were hurting.
New Prices Announcement
On October 1, 2021, product prices will increase across the board. The new prices reflect significant increases to material and production costs over the past 18 months. Now that those costs are beginning to stabilize, we must move forward with the increase.
Streamer Game Table Giveaway
We also made an exciting announcement during the AMA: We’re giving away one of our Streamer Game Tables! (That includes White Glove Delivery shipping, too!)
How Do You Enter?
The ideal winner is a group or organization who has been a positive influence on the tabletop gaming community.
- Submit a 2-minute video talking about your group’s mission, how you do it, and showing us where the table is going to go. We need to know you currently have room for it. And how the table will enter the room for delivery purposes.
- Send a link to your video via email to [email protected].
- Deadline: October 1, 2021.
- That’s all you need* to enter.
* You can also send any written documentation, like letters of support. *
What if We Have a Streamer Game Table on Order Already?
Enter anyway! We’ll refund your purchase if you win. We know streamers may want to lock in the current price before it goes up on October 1, 2021.
We have an advisory board of current Streamer Game Table owners helping us with the decision of choosing, once staff have collated the results. We will announce the winner before the end of the year.
Carolina Game Tables is strong today due to your support, thoughts, and kind words. Join us in the journey to the new normal, and the adventures awaiting us all.
