TOPIC: Effect of Gold Tickets on Token sales.

Effect of Gold Tickets on Token sales. 12 years 8 months ago #1

I am betting that gold tickets will change the pattern of how people buy tokens.<br /><br />I think that pre-orders will be mainly driven by people who are aiming for purple tokens.  So if you really, really want 4 purple tokens you will buy 4 $250 orders.<br /><br />But then things will get interesting.   After the first shipment of tokens arrive, people will open their tokens and many folks who wanted gold tickets will not get them.   So we will get a second wave of purchases, from people who will say "Well, I wasn't planning on buying any more tokens at the moment but I would really like a gold ticket, so I better buy right now".  This wave will be a real token addiction test, hopefully people will not reorder too many times.  <br /><br />Then we will get the final wave, like we did this fall, when Jeff anounced that tokens were running out and they sold out in about 5 days.  And everyone who doen't have a gold ticket will ask themselves how bad they want one (or in some folks case how bad they want 5)  <br /><br />So I am expecting 3 waves of tokens purchases this winter/spring.   Poor Lori.<br /><br />

Yeah, but that first wave for you will be half of the total available supply anyhow!    =D

Hmmm ... everyone SAYS one wave for them - but I'll bet many won't be able to resist that siren's call of Treasure Tokens after they've opened that first batch of tokens  =D

I'll definitely only be in wave one--I usually get some pre-order tokens and then a few packs at GenCon.  Plus I have zero interest in Golden Tickets.<br /><br />But I'll be spending quite a lot (for me) in the first order, so then I'll just have to remind myself that I don't need to spend any more money.  ;/

If I engage in waves 2 or 3 I am going to have to deal with the dark side of my better half, and I'd rather face a nightmare commando run!<br />

I never get these things right.  My batting average is that of an American League pitcher.  I just hope everyone has fun with it -- and not too many people are disappointed if they don't get one.  This should give the task of opening a pack of tokens a little more intense and fun.<br /><br />And thanks to everyone who opts to buy a lot of tokens.  I already have my eye on some cool animatronics and special effects that I can bring in if token sales go well.  I am going to a Haunted House convention in March -- and I hope to pick up some cool stuff.<br /><br />
