March 2024 Newsletter

Hello Friends,

We have recently heard a call for greater communication from The Maestro Team outside of our Kickstarter campaigns. Given how large has grown (and will continue to grow!) we believe that now is the best time to start to release a monthly newsletter to keep everyone in the loop! We look forward to this being the first of many steps we implement on our path to becoming the best board game publisher we can be for all of you. We would like to take this time to thank you all for your support: We likely sound like a broken record at this point if you follow all of our projects, but without you all, none of this would be possible and this fact does not go unnoticed. Now without further adieu, please enjoy the March 2024 Maestro Media Newsletter!

Valentine's Day Promotion Fulfillment

We are pleased to announce that many orders put on hold by the warehouse consolidation have been shipped out. While we were hoping to get them all done before the end of the month, your overwhelming support led to many more orders than anticipated! For the remaining orders, we estimate that fulfillment will be completed around mid-March. Thank you for your continued patience as we chug away behind the scenes to get the rest of the orders shipped!

If you have any questions about your order(s), please feel free to reach out to us on our Contact Us page and we will be happy to offer you our personalized assistance!

Sally Face: Strange Nightmares Pre-orders launch

After a successful Kickstarter campaign featuring over 3,000 backers, we have been hard at work bringing Sally Face: Strange Nightmares to life! For those unfamiliar, Sally Face: Strange Nightmares is a thrilling cooperative tabletop game based on Steve Gabry's award-winning video game, Sally Face. In it, you will be tasked with unraveling the mysteries with your friends as you explore the Addison Apartments before the corruption takes over! Will you be able to uncover the secrets and unveil the truth in this strange alternate retelling of the events of the hit video game?

After a year’s worth of hard work, we are pleased to announce that Strange Nightmares has begun printing! With this, we are excitedly launching pre-orders on on March 15th. Be on the lookout for future announcements detailing what comes with this spooky pre-order!
