Slovenia and France

Slovenia, a small country in southern Europe, is not hit as hard as it’s neighbor Italy. But still, even there situation is not easy, as our partner Ponva wrote to us:

It has been almost a month, and now we are reaching 1200 infected (this is week old info, sorry for posting this a bit late). It may not seem much, but bear in mind, we have a population of 2 million. Shops are mostly closed, international shipments are complicated, and anyway, the warehouses are closed, domestic traffic is jammed (a lot of internet shopping), social gatherings and crossing of municipal borders are restricted, we are trying to keep as much to ourselves as we can… But we have slowly got used to the new ‘normal’ of days. And then the first death in the circle of friends comes, and everything is strange again.

France, on the contrary, is one of the worst-hit countries in Europe. So it is totally understandable what our partner Iello is doing:

On the IELLO side, it was decided to cut back at the beginning of the crisis, mainly to protect the employees.
We have decided to suspend the shipment of our games, not to penalize the shops forced to close.
Our teams are now teleworking, and the logistics service is, of course, very reduced.
Each department is permanently on duty to answer the most urgent questions and to continue the development of the games.
We, of course, continue the development of the games since the beginning of the crisis. We also continue to translate/distribute Print ‘n’ Play games, stand-alone where possible, and we publish guides to light content games: What’s… Deckbuilding? And Play with others… from home!
Activity continues despite all the constraints, the teams are teleworking, to be able to survive to the end of the crisis in the best possible way.
