Sorry about the delay in the update on the site, we decided we’d do a physical count on the inventory at the same time so that we could verify all our stock. Now we’re certain that whatever is shown on the site is in-stock. Note that since we don’t update the site 24/7, watch out for the ‘pre-order’ warning in the shopping cart even when purchasing games that aren’t in the Pre-order section. That means it’s out of stock too obviously – probably ’cause it’s a really popular game!
We received a slew of new releases including Prophecy (1 in stock now, we expect another 2 in another week and that’s it!), Hamburgum, Kingsburg and Thebes. Also a lot of other games have been put back into stock and we expect many popular games to be arriving at our distributors within the next 2 weeks.
As always, if you have any questions, do feel free to contact us.
Okay, a few points on stock coming in and our review contest.
– We will be restocking a lot of our games this week with a trip down to the US so expect a lot of the favourites to come back into stock like Ticket to Ride, Race for the Galaxy, Descent, Starcraft and the like.
– We will also be getting both Prophecy, Kingsburg and Hamburgum in next week. Unfortunately, the stock of games available is pretty low so be sure to order them as soon as possible.
– We’ve got a great Review Contest taking place once again this month and we’ve already had some outstanding entries. If you have something to say about a game, do go ahead and comment and you’ll be entered to win a $50 coupon.
Welcome to our first annual Boxing Day Sale
To see what’s on sale, just click on the ‘Promotions’ tab above. We have quite a few popular games on sale including:
– Arkham Horror
– Pillars of the Earth
– Twilight Imperium
– Zombie Fluxx
– and a whole lot more
The sale lasts only so long as stock lasts. We have a limited quantity of all items, and once a product is out-of-stock, you will no longer be able to check out. The system should inform you that a board game out-of-stock and we will, throughout the course of the day, update the inventory on the site as well.
We apologise, but there are no rainchecks for any special promotion orders.
Free shipping for all promotions will not be in-place for all promotional orders. This supersedes all other information on the site.
All orders made today will only ship out on December 28, 2007 at the earliest. It might take a day or two more.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Happy shopping.
Edit: We’ve decided to keep this sale running until the end of the year.
Those of you who have been keeping close track might have noticed that there has been a slew of popular games coming back ‘in-stock’. Alison finished her run on Monday and has started mailing out all our pre-orders and any other orders that came in while she was away.
So expect to start receiving e-mails with your tracking number soon if you haven’t been contacted about your pre-order. Note that not this holds mostly for products that were out-of-stock – there are still some products that have you to be released on pre-order.
Also, our distributor didn’t have the full order of Seafarers and Cities & Knights of Catan that we made, and we’re awaiting word on when his next shipment is coming in. In there is a product that you wish to order, the safest thing is to enquire about availability from us if it is on pre-order. If we are able to get it in before Christmas, we’ll inform you and you can make a pre-order of it. This way, you will be guaranteed to receive it.
A clear example are all our Seafarer orders that went out – the limited stock that we received shipped to all our preorders.
We do apologise about the amount of product coming in and out of stock at the moment – between the Secret Santa orders and a substantial increase in sales from Christmas, we are finding it challenging keeping all our products in stock. We’re doing our best and hope you can bear with us. We’re committed to getting all orders that are possible shipped well before Christmas.
And we’re received our latest shipment of games at last after delays from the public holiday and just slow shipping. With that in place, we’ve now restocked:
– Power Grid
– Werewolves of Millers Hollow
And have stock of favourites like:
– Heroes Incorporated
– Barnyard Critters
– Halli Galli
New stock has come in, including a ton of CheapAss Games. Some of the most exciting things to have arrived include:
– Settlers of Catan (2nd Edition)
– 1960 : The Making of a President
– China Rails
– Hannibal : Rome vs Carthage (btw, we have very limited stock on this one)
– Munchkin : the Good, Bad and the Munchkin
– Carcassonne the Discovery
– Duel in the Dark
– and lots more!
Also, more products are back in-stock including:
– Descent : Well of Darkness
– Dork Tower
Expect to see a lot more products arrive and come back in stock soon including Power Grid as our second shipment from our other distributor arrives in the next few days.
Our deepest apologies to everyone who was waiting for their order of Starcraft, it’s finally here. All our pre-orders are now out, and we obviously have extra stock.
Also, we will be down in the US on Friday once again, so if there are any board games you’re looking to purchase; even if it is not on the site, do contact us. We’ll be happy to throw it on the order so that you can be assured of getting it.
Wow, that was fast. In less than a month, we’ve managed to increase our inventory to over 200 board games. Some of them sell well, some of them sell much slower, but we’re committed to holding an inventory for everyone.
We have two new categories ‘Classic’ games that include old favorites such as Monopoly, Risk and Scrabble and ‘Adult’ board games for mature audiences.
Other new and exciting games in this recent shipment include Naval Battles and Caylus Magna Carta – the card version of the popular Caylus board game.
We have a new order coming up just before V-Con so if you have any games that you are interested in, do tell us. As always, we’ll be happy to special order them for you at no extra charge.
