Thinking of Joining The Family?
First off, thank you for considering the idea of helping us out! That alone means a lot to me 🙂
I am assuming you’re here either because you like our games, you want to support us, or you found this page accidentally and are worried you are signing yourself up for some strange secret organization… either way, cool!
As a new and growing company we can’t be everywhere at once! And even the places we are at, we can be spread pretty thin. My hopes are to create a IUG’s family of Ambassadors around the world to welcome people and introduce them to our games so they can have fun with their family and friends as well!
Different types of Ambassadors?
We think so! We know that different people are comfortable doing different things. And comfort is very important to us, we don’t expect anyone to do anything they don’t enjoy doing! So, whether it’s proof-reading/translating rules, helping out at conventions, moderating forums on BGG, Reddit or elsewhere, or play-testing game prototypes, we hope that our Ambassadors are happy and comfortable sharing our family with new and existing players!
Inside Up Games needs to get out there and have our games hitting the tables for players to see, hear and enjoy! We attend as many conventions as we can each year, but we can’t come close to covering all the conventions everywhere. This is our largest area for growth. With your support, either at conventions with us, or running events at conventions without us, your help here would be amazing!
No matter which of the options above interest you there is one thing essential to Inside Up Games – Inclusivity. We don’t expect you to be the best at any of the ways you choose to help, we want you to try your hardest, but even more than that, we want everyone to feel welcome! So at any and all times we expect our Ambassadors to welcome all types of people, regardless of gender, sexuality, race, religion, or age.
A Little Back and Forth?
Look, we are new at this, and you are the first draft of IUG Ambassadors. We don’t know everything that we don’t know. So although we will always give you as much information as possible, there maybe things forgotten and for this reason we would love to have open communication both ways! If something isn’t clear or you have a question, comment or suggestion please send it our way! Let’s fine tune this together 🙂 Oh and there is a very good chance you will be privy to information long before public consumption, in this regard we ask for your trust and help in keeping it in the family!
And for you?
This may grow and change as we learn what works and what you want, but for now our Ambassadors are rewarded for their help with:
- T-shirts: We recently launched our RedBubble page of IUG products. Any apparel purchased through the site, and worn in a photo of you helping with our games at an event or convention is eligible for a full refund from us for the cost of the item!
- Discounts and Free Products: We intend to offer the best discount (including sometimes free products) to our Ambassadors where possible. Again as we are new, we aren’t sure what this looks like, but we’ll do our best to make sure you know how appreciated you are! 🙂
If the above interests you and you would like to become an Inside Up Games Ambassador, please fill out this form, and we will get in touch as soon as possible! Thanks for being awesome!
