Ship Comes In / Now Hiring
- Hi there!
We just got confirmation from our broker - the latest shipment has
cleared customs and is ready to pick up. This includes the Barons
reprint, Pala (complete game), Glory To Rome Promo Cards (I.V edition -
see above). There are also some components for Montana and Quills
although the cards for these games are still in Shanghai, waiting to
ship with Plato 3000 in a couple of weeks time.
Christopher Rao (CGF Production Director) and I ran through the
production / shipment schedule last night and we're currently planning 5
shipments this year. Not too many new games beyond those we've already
announced (e.g., Invasion of the Garden Gnomes, Zombie in my Pocket,
Black Box) but up to now we've only been making 1 or 2 shipments per
year so this is a huge step up for us.
>>>>>>>>>>>>With this shipment arriving we are also need to expand our assembly team
for a few months to make sure the work gets done, so if you're looking
for work in the Boston area then we'd love to hear from you! Note that
our factory is in Groton, MA, so we're actually up on the New Hampshire
border, but there is a train from North Station / Porter Square to Ayer
which we can arrange to collect you from if needed.
Your immediate responsibilities are making sure that the orders for the
games on the boat get shipped (including 2000 copies of the promo cards
to BGG!) but you'll also be part of the team that makes sure Glory To
Rome Black Box (and all the promo goodies) gets shipped out correctly.
Starting salary is $9.25 - no experience necessary, although warehouse
and/or retail experience a plus. Attention to detail certainly is
important and we really prefer to hire game-lovers where possible (hence
advertising the position here!). Also as a company we're growing quickly
right now, so there may well be more 'corporate' opportunities in the
future for the right candidate.
Hours are flexible - we're really looking for people available 20 to 40
hours / week, although we'll consider people available for at least 10
hours per week.
If you're interested please send a resume to factory@....

YES! We'd love to see your game idea
P.S. I'm in Europe right now (sitting in an Irish bar in Paris - go
figure) but I just noticed UG XVIII is coming up next weekend - I will
see if I can get a couple of the CGF team there to show our latest
