""Table Game Company" Looking for investor??"
Thu Apr-23-09 02:30 PM by oneiota


I have created 3 "table" sport games and 1 word game (better than scrabble)

These are all original and very inexpensive to produce. Great stocking stuffer and 'low end' gift idea. The three sport games are baseball, golf, bowling and the word game (have a basketball game which I am not too comfortable with yet).

Incorporated once and lost everything to a fire, including financial backer (LOL ... not in the fire, he had no more to invest). Decided to save up again and this second time the attorney filed bankruptcy and he had all the funds for the patents, copyrights and trademarks, one year in advance on his services and funds to get funding ... "No Matter What" (I do have a patent on one game). I actually did get incorporated at least... I will not give up so I am attempting a third time. Everything is ready to move forward.

I am presently sourcing in China for the plastic substrates to be produced. I need funding for the printing of the labels here in the USA (L.A.) and the cost to set up warehousing and small office.

I have had great feedback as far as 'value' regarding these products. Here in Las Vegas many Casino's give away 5 to 10 thousand gifts a month to locals as "thank you gifts" and these are perfect for them as they are inexpensive... there are hundreds of casinos nationwide (1,500). The baseball game can be used as promotions at major and minor league parks, piggybacked with a major corportation as "gift" for special slow nights. Everything is ready, bugs are out, all development and research has been finished. Cost per unit is at a bare (very attractive). I have offer sheet from a Company which helps the adult down-syndrome earn a living and they will package the product for 18.5 cents a unit, (minimum 5,000 games at a time) so you will be helping the needy too.

Do not need much and can return the funds almost immediately. I feel do owe the first investor for his funds regarding 1 of the games (golf game) but no urgency in that return... I bought and paid cash for land (5 acres) for the company and paid cash for the Company truck, and 3 computers.

Do not need much for this to be a very quick reality. Need to be ready to purchase the substrates coming from China and be ready for the delivery and have the printed labels ready for the games when they arrive.

Will work out what you wish to make on the project, regarding your funding assistance - a straight ROI or an investment with on going return for a few years or ???

Not urgent just need to get this out into the world.

Let me know

Thanks for your valuable time and any considerations
