My name is Andrew Zorowitz and I've been to over 150 anime, gaming, furry and comic conventions in the last 5 years selling boardgames and accessories. You name it, I've seen it. AMA
Hi Reddit! I'm Andrew Zorowitz, owner of Foam Brain Games. My company went to 58 conventions in the last 12 months and continues to blanket the country selling board games.
We've sold board games at a variety of conventions: PAX, New York ComicCon, AnthroCon, Steampunk Worlds Fair, Origins, Gen Con, local roller derby events, and many more. In the past 5 years, I've gone to over 150 conventions and my company has gone to over 220.
We've also done 7 Kickstarter projects for various gaming accessories and are currently doing our first licensed one for Sentinels of the Multiverse Merch (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1006691271/foam-brain-gear-sentinels-of-the-multiverse-collec)
Here are some of the things we've made in the past, including metal dice, spinning dice pins and more: http://redditgifts.com/marketplace/merchant/foam-brain-games/
I've seen a lot of incredible, fun and wacky things by travelling to so many conventions, and some things I didn't even really believe myself as they were happening. AMA, Reddit!
.... And that's all for today. Thanks for an awesome AMA folks! Don't forget, if you're going to be at New York Comic Con, stop by and say hello! Booth 2155.
