M48: Are you surprised by the Kickstarter support? 

Well Played WI: Honestly, yes. We are so grateful for the Kickstarter campaign success, we not only exceeded our goal by over $100k, but we also established an awesome community of super supportive customers.

M48: What are your company’s future aspirations or targets?

Well Played WI: Looking ahead, we have a set of aspirations we’d like to reach. We would love to sell 5k units in 2024 as well as get into retail and various other eCommerce platforms. Establish a constant flow of content on social media platforms and potentially launch some aftermarket products to further expand the gameplay.

M48: What has been your biggest challenge with the BocceRoll™ so far? 

Well Played WI: Gosh, it’s hard to zero in on a single greatest challenge. Overall, it’s been a huge learning experience launching a product and establishing a brand presence. One of our biggest focuses has been working with our supplier to ensure that the product can be manufactured easily, while also maintaining the level of quality that is so important to all of us. 

Logistics of fulfillment and distribution has also been one of our bigger challenges, figuring it out with over 1400 orders all at once was a little overwhelming. That said, we are on the right track now and it’s much easier now that we’ve gotten through the initial order.


M48: What has driven your team to go the next/extra steps? 

Well Played WI: We are all super dedicated to making sure BocceRoll™ is a hit and our customers are happy. We see so much potential for BocceRoll™ in the outdoor play market and can’t wait to see it really take off!
