On the Gaming Front
The last six weeks have been a whirlwind. Being invited to Mattel for Inventor’s Day was a tremendous honor and experience. We were able to see the inner workings of the toy and game giant as well as network with 140 inventors to discuss our games and future ideas. Since then, we have had meetings with both Mattel and Spin Master to present our games. We have also been very busy promoting our speed card game Ratuki. Since the beginning of December, we have hosted three game nights at local Barnes & Noble stores, exhibited at the Children’s Christmas Carnival on Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and shared our games with a local philanthropic game playing group. We post our events on GaZima Games facebook so if you want to stay connected or attend an event feel free to friend us!

Since our last posting, we made a donation to the Occupational Therapy department at Camp Pendleton Hospital to support the Wounded Warrior program. Our games Ratuki, Gobsmacked, and Zip made a tremendous impression on the staff. We are thrilled that our games are helping our brave service men and women.
GaZima Games coached a ten and eleven year-old youth soccer team, the Devil Dogs, through an undefeated season from October to December. We had an amazing time passing our soccer knowledge on to the kids and watching them develop as individual players and as a team. We even won the league canned food drive!!
Gobsmacked™, won the Creative Child 2009 Game of the Year Award and the prestigious National Parenting Seal for 2010.
Ratuki™, manufactured by USAopoly was released exclusively in Barnes & Nobles and was one of their top sellers for the holiday season.
Rate ItTM, our newest family party game, has just been released in Barnes & Noble. We are very excited to see it on store shelves.
We look forward to the 2010 and all it has to hold. And, as always, we appreciate everyone’s support and feedback from playing our games with friends and family.
