Company Offers Free Board Game To Anybody Who Lost Job In Pandemic
GMT Games are kindly offering free board games for anyone who has suffered pandemic job loss.
At this stage everybody, including the tabletop manufacturing industry, has been affected in some way, shape or form by the Covid-19 pandemic situation that’s ongoing, however board game publisher GMT Games is looking to soften the blow in an incredibly generous way.
If you’re one of the millions of unlucky people who unfortunately lost their job during the pandemic, GMT Games are willing to ship you a free board game or two depending where you’re based.
Announced in the company’s official newsletter GMT stated “we’ve decided, as we did numerous times in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown, that we can show support for those of you who have lost jobs by giving you a free game or two. I know it’s not much in the greater scheme of things, but we want you to know that we are thinking of you and that your welfare—including the ability to destress and decompress from the pressures of the world by playing games—is important to us”

This wonderful gesture, designed to help relieve some of the pressure of an incredibly challenging 2020, allows US based customers pick any two board games from the company’s in-stock selection, while international customers will be able to select a single board game of their choice. GMT Games is even shipping the games out to those affected free of charge. The only exception is the newly released strategy game Imperial Struggle, that the companies cites as “based on current demand it looks like they’ll be sold out within a couple months.”
GMT Games, who publish “a broad line of Wargames, Strategy games, Eurogames, and Family games.” have made the process as easy as possible, and all you need to do is email proof of your job loss to the company’s LLC Manager (details in newsletter) who will arrange the shipment to you. Thank you GMT.
