As most of you know, the Mrs and I piddle around with selling games and game related crafts for quite some time. 

Well, we've decided to take the next step.   We're going to the County Clerk this week to register a DBA form for our new business, and we are rebranding from  The Nerdery of Southeast Texas to....

The Game Czar
"Where the Games Are"

I am hiring a friend who is a talented graphic artist to give us a logo and banner art to work with, and we've signed on for Retropalooza V in Dallas (the big one).

It's a big step, and I'm nervous and excited. 

My experience at Atari.IO over the past couple of years has definitely expanded my desire to make this work in some capacity, so thank you guys.

Good thoughts and prayers are appreciated!

Good news.  You get my good wishes, but you probably will do great with or without them.

Simply terrific, Row!

 

Yeah, you gotta go dashing onwards with acquired skills and a heartful of desire to get what you want in the great maze of life.

That Chalice dream ain't gonna put itself off the home castle walls!

 

Insert Game Czar cart

and

Power On!

I've seen the crafts on here and they look top-notch.  Our economy needs more "American Made" stuff that is based on quality over quantity.  You will do well and you may even surprise yourself in the process!
