Offical Announcement From GMT Games
Doing a Bit to Care for our Customers, Too: The Return of the Tough Economy Special
We know that this virus, in addition to the threat it poses to our collective health, has had a negative economic impact on many of our customers, as well.
As with so many social or economic problems, it’s not within our power to provide big fixes—to restore lost jobs, retirement funds, or lost earning power.
But we’ve decided, as we did numerous times in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown, that we can show support for those of you who have lost jobs by giving you a free game or two.
I know it’s not much in the greater scheme of things, but we want you to know that we are thinking of you and that your welfare—including the ability to destress and decompress from the pressures of the world by playing games—is important to us.
Here are the details:
Eligibility: If you have lost your job due to shutdown-related layoffs or closings since March 15, 2020, you are eligible to get one (non-US customers) or two (US customers) free games from us, from games that are in stock now.
We’d love to give an extra game to international customers as well, but the spiking shipping rates overseas limit our ability to do so.
Process. If you’d like to take advantage of this offer, please drop an email to Tony Curtis, our LLC Manager, at [email protected]. Please include proof or explanation of your job loss and your choice of which in-stock game(s) you’d like us to send.
Tony will work with our office folks to take care of getting your game(s) shipped out to you.
One Game Exemption. We’re sorry, but we’re exempting the new game Imperial Struggle from this offer.
We printed twice as many as usual, but based on current demand it looks like they’ll be sold out within a couple months.
