Hi, and thanks for responding to my request for some feedback.

If you could take a few minutes to reply to the questions below as
accurately as possible, I'd very much appreciate it. Please do not post
replies to the GZG list, but send them all to me directly.
All responses will be considered confidential.
Please skip any questions you can't or don't want to answer, and feel
to elaborate as much as you like on others.  Note that some questions
on to others, and thus some may be irrelevant to you anyway!

Many thanks,

Jon (GZG)

1) Which GZG games do you own?

2) Which GZG games do you play regularly (say, at least once a month)?

stick to the published rules?

6) Which other (non-GZG) SF games are you particularly interested in?

7) When playing GZG games, do you use GZG miniatures or other brands? If
others, then which ones?

8) Do you play historical minatures games as well as F&SF? If so, which
periods interest you?

9) Do you have a games store within easy reach, or approximately how far
away is the nearest one you know of?

10) If you have a local store, do they stock GZG stuff? If so, do they
a full range of the miniatures?

11) Do you prefer to support your local store by buying through them,
if this takes considerably longer than mailordering direct?

12) If you buy mailorder, do you order by credit card or by other means
(cheques, money orders etc)?

13) If you buy by mail order, have you ever ordered internationally (eg:
in the USA, have you ordered from GZG in the UK or other non-USA

14) If YES to the above, approximately how long does it take for your
typical overseas order to arrive, compared to an order from a supplier
your own country?

15) Do you have to be able to find a game or miniatures line (GZG or
others) in your local store in order to be interested in it, or are you
prepared to seek out new games via the internet or adverts and purchase
them by mailorder ?

16) Would you continue to play a game that was no longer supported by
local store, or would you move on to something that you could buy off

17) Are full e-commerce facilities essential before you would consider
mailordering via the internet, or are you happy to simply order by

18) Do you attend wargame shows and conventions? If you do, could you
a few that you go to regularly?

19) Do you prefer to buy goods direct from tradestands at conventions
rather than by mailorder?

20) Do in-store demos or demos at conventions often get you interested
the games being demonstrated?

Thanks for you time!
