This Week at ADB, Inc., 11-17 March 2012

Steve Cole reports:

This was another normal work week. A ton of orders went out, Mongoose finished shipping Federation Fleet Boxes, and the two Steves worked on new projects. The weather this week was warm, even hot now and then. The spam storm mostly remained at something over 200 per day.

There was nothing new on e23 this week.

Steve Cole worked on new Mongoose ships, Starline 2400 carrier group boxes, playtesting Marines (transporter artillery works, shuttles need work) and updating that rulebook, descriptions for e23 uploads, getting Secret Project T ready for playtest, Reinforcements Attack (first 12 of 40 ships sent to staff), ACTASF errata (fixes for Gorns and Kzintis).

Steven Petrick worked on Mongoose ships, SFB scenarios, T2012, and checked new FC ship cards.

Wednesday, we held the first official playtest of Secret Project T with all five in-house people. The non-player assassin won (killing more than the five players combined), as everybody used him to deny kills to the others. We reduced the power of the assassin from killing everything in sight to a 50% chance of one kill.

Leanna kept up with the high volume of orders and accounting up to date. Leanna added Zocchi's Alien Space and Star Fleet Battle Manual to the shopping cart.

Mike kept orders going out, rebuilt the inventory, checked in large restocks of 2400s, and managed customer service.

Joel did website updates, chased pirates, and helped Mike.

Jean managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 1,142 friends), worked on Traveller, and did some marketing.
