What is a Game Master?
A Game Master helps the Argent Saga community by encouraging new stores to become official LGS’s for Argent Saga. It will be their job to contact local stores, demo the game, sign them up for the LGS program, and help run tournaments.
Argent Saga is a game by players, for players – and a Game Master carries that by showing exactly how great our amazing community is. The more people that play the game, the more enjoyable it can be for everyone. Argent Saga is a great game that is easy to learn, and it’s the job of a Game Master to demonstrate that to local stores.
What does a Game Master do?
A Game Master’s first responsibility is to be the first point of contact for potential new stores. This will entail contacting or going to the store personally to help them build a local Argent Saga community. You will be their information hub, answer any immediate questions they have, and be able to direct them to the answers that you don’t have yourself.
Ultimately, the goal of a Game Master is to have these stores carry Argent Saga, and fill out our online application to become an official LGS and hold tournaments. For stores that already carry the game, you will assist in holding additional demo nights to help their community grow.
Why should I be a Game Master?
You should consider applying to be a Game Master if you have a passion for building a community. We will help you find new potential stores, provide demo products for those who want to see the game in action first, and create teaching guides to show players of any skill level how fun Argent Saga can be.
In exchange for your valuable efforts, Game Masters will be entered into an incentive program based on how many stores they can acquire. Game Masters will receive a Booster Box for each store that signs up through your efforts, with even greater rewards for those who go above and beyond.
What if a Store isn’t interested?
Some stores may be reluctant to carry a new card game when they’ve seen so many come and go. In these circumstances, we have additional tools for Game Masters to help demo the game for numerous players and run free introductory tournaments for the stores. Our goal is to help these stores get a true understanding of what makes our game different from those that have burned them in the past.
Argent Saga will work with stores to help them stock product in unique ways that will ensure successful sales. Additionally, we will work 1-on-1 with Game Masters to find locations to hold tournaments if a local store is reluctant to pick up the game.
