Effective immediately, I am retired from conventions. I will be able to provide more information soon on my public Facebook, and there are some financial obligations that need to be worked out, but I am effectively done.
Regarding the Youtube channel, for now it will stay up but no new videos will be added. Again, there are some financial obligations that need to be worked out. I’ll have more information soon.
Thanks for twenty years.
Thanks to Dan Gaichas (@StatManDan) for sponsoring this video through the Fall Video Campaign and to William Alexander for the edit. Here’s Press Your Luck from Queen City Anime Con in Charlotte, NC. Enjoy!
On Monday night/Tuesday morning, one of our foster kittens, Licorice, was involved in an accident. While underfoot, he was inadvertently stepped on in the head/neck area, and now he is in critical condition with brain/nerve injuries and neck trauma. Vet bills for the first night are already well into three figures, and as his prognosis is “time will tell” with his injuries, the bills may progress much higher.
Starting today, and continuing on into the foreseeable future, I will be fundraising to help cover Licorice’s bills. If you would like to help, here are donation links:
https://www.paypal.me/greggosgameshows – My Paypal link
https://cash.me/greggosgameshows – My Square link
https://ko-fi.com/greggosgameshows – My Ko-Fi link
Alternatively, I will be streaming on Twitch beginning on or around 12PM EST and continuing throughout the day/week, and have Affiliate status there. If you would like to subscribe or contribute bits through Twitch, I currently have quite a ways to go until hitting a payment threshold, but if that’s what works for you that’s fine.
As a way of saying thank you for your generosity, I am offering the following incentives for donating. If you would like any of the following with at least a $20 donation, please make sure to mention it in your donation:
If you would like a home version of any of my available software, it can be yours with at least a $75 donation. Please make sure to mention it in your donation.
If you would like a video of a Greggo’s Game Shows game show uploaded in your name, it can be done with at least a $75 donation. Please specify which game show you would like in your donation. (Subject to availability.)
Thank you so much for your help. I will update how things are going with Licorice here and on my personal Facebook.
The Indiegogo campaign ended, and including outside contributions we hit our goal of $600, which means that six videos have been paid for and will be sent to editors by the end of November. I am awaiting payment from Indiegogo, at which time I will be able to send video and payment to each of my three editors for them to begin working on the remaining uploads for the fall. Thank you so much for your generosity. Rewards will be fulfilled after receiving my payment from Indiegogo.
At least one of you who contributed at the $100 level requested an episode of a game show that doesn’t currently have footage, so I have added that game to the schedule of an upcoming con so that it will be available as a pledge incentive for the winter campaign. If there are more of you who are interested, I will make every effort to have episodes of that show ready to go by the end of February so that they can be included in the next fundraiser.
If you’re interested in certain game shows being played, take a look at the game list of active games, and then head over to this survey.
I appreciate everyone’s input as we work towards an exciting winter convention season!
Card Sharks is in the lineup for this weekend’s Tsubasacon and I’ve just put up some surveys that I hope you have a minute to take!
We need 100 conventiongoers to take this one:
And 100 anime fans for this one:
Thanks so much! See you in Huntington this weekend!
Thanks to Austin for the contribution via my Indiegogo and thanks to Annie of Vitamin H for the edit!
So con season has more or less dried up for 2018. I have one con left in October, one in December, and maybe one in November (plus potentially one more). This gives me lots of free time, and during a lot of that free time I’ve been doing some gaming and broadcasting it on Twitch.
And it’s become apparent that some of you really don’t like that I’m doing that.
Here’s the thing. I know many of you only care about my game show content, and I get that. Unfortunately, there’s not going to be a large amount of that live at conventions for the rest of the year, and since that also means I’m not making much in the way of convention income, I have to spend a lot more time working on things that pay the bills, and video games are how I take a break. I thought that with a Twitch channel I could interact with some of you while taking a break. I’m not abandoning the game show side of things, I just don’t have a lot of new content there at the moment. (You of course can help out on that aspect by contributing to the fall Indiegogo.)
Today I have decided to separate my video gaming content from my Greggo’s Game Shows social media, so that those of you who don’t want it don’t have to see it, and those of you who DO want it can get it streamlined straight into your feeds. Here are the addresses for Greggo’s Gaming Channel: Youtube Twitch Twitter Facebook
I have also created a Discord channel, which I’ll be utilizing for live game shows, which is something else I can do on Twitch, and that I’ll be starting later this year. At the moment the games I do there will be played for fun, as I’ve got to research the legal ramifications of offering prizes on this sort of game show. You can find it here. I’m planning on doing a Jackbox stream tomorrow night and will likely be using the Discord alongside, so if you’d like to take part in that or future game show stuff, feel free to join.
I understand that many of you follow me because you are hardcore game show fans, and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy that content as it comes out (and it will still be coming out, I assure you). I just hope that those of you who are only interested in that won’t continue to express your discontent at anything that isn’t to your tastes. Keeping the two separated will hopefully mean that if you don’t want it, you won’t see it.
Thanks as always for your support.
