When you first click the “Convert your Account” button, you’ll be asked to specify your organization type. The three available account statuses, each with its own unique interface and customized options, are “Retailer,” “Game Club,” and “Convention.” With our versatile forum options, retailers, game club managers, and convention organizers can each gain control over a distinct selection of tools designed to serve their specific needs.
“Retailer” accounts help hobby game store owners and managers stay in touch with their local player communities while attracting new customers, all with minimal effort and zero cost. List store hours and location for all to see, upload a logo to further personalize your store’s online profile, and more. Meanwhile, “game club” accounts help club members keep in touch with each other about FFG games and related club events, all while providing prospective members with a new way to approach the club. Finally, “convention” accounts list FFG-related events at an upcoming convention, provide a way for the convention to seek new events, and much more.
