Video Reviews

We’ve got a new video review page up on the site.

New RPGs

As we announced last month, there’s a new category – Role-Playing Games. We’ve added even more stock and systems to the category including fleshing out our Pathfinder core rulebooks.  Do let us know if we’re missing a few books or systems that you’d like to see.

Extended Local Pickup Hours

Our Local Pickup Hours have now been extended to Noon to 6pm Mondays to Fridays.  In addition, customers no longer have to book appointments for pick-ups but can drop by anytime in our Local Pickup Hours once they have received a shipment confirmation from us.  You can read more about it on the blog.

Updated Checkout Page

We’ve updated our Checkout page to be slightly more intuitive in use.  In addition, your shopping cart will be shown at the checkout.  Let us know if you find any bugs with this program, we believe we’ve dealt with them all already though.

Upcoming Games

The much awaited Pandemic reprint should arrive this week and the Game of Thrones board game is expected either end of the month or early December. In addition, the Manhattan Project should be arriving soon along with the Quarriors : Rise of the Demons expansion, Urban Sprawl and Dungeon Petz.

New RPG Section, Pre-Order List & MMP Games

Many of you might have noticed a new category – Role-Playing Games. We’ve recently introduced this new category and have entered 4 different systems at the moment. If there’s a system you’d like to see us carry more of (other than D&D which we are not able to stock); please do let us know. In the meantime, expect that we will be stocking the full line of books for all these systems in the near future.

We have also launched the Pre-Order Release Date List on the site. We will attempt to keep it up to date as we learn of changes in release dates from our distributors or customers. Let us know if you see any errors, it’s an on-going project that will improve and become more encompassing.

Finally, after much back and forth; we finally opened up a channel of communication to Multi-Man Publishin Games and will be able to stock and sell their games regularly from now on.

Guest Bloggers & Conventions

We have now spent over a month rotating our guest bloggers and their reviews on the site – let us know what you thought of their writing and if it’s something that you have found value in. You can find the reviews here. We and the guest bloggers look forward to your feedback.

Lastly, we just finished a great convention with VCon and will have a Con report up in the coming few weeks. As always, we had a great time and Alison helped run an on-going gaming table at the convention throughout the weekend. The next convention we will be at is Bottoscon (a local wargaming convention) on November 4 – 6, 2011 and we have sponsored both Fallcon in Calgary and the just finished Tooncon in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Guest Bloggers & Conventions

We recently made a request for some guest bloggers to help us write and review more games. We currently have 3 writers rotating through on a weekly basis. Let us know if you are enjoying reading the new guest reviews and who you enjoy reading the most – that includes Tao too!

We have a short Cos & Effect Con Report. Overall, not a bad first year though sadly there wasn’t an actual gaming location unlike what they promised us.

Lastly, we have VCon occuring between September 30 – October 2, 2011 and Bottoscon (a local wargaming convention) on November 4 – 6, 2011;  both of which we are sponsoring and attending.

Canada Post is going on strike May 25, 2011. Business will continue on as usual, and we are currently sourcing other methods of shipping.

We are hoping to keep the same pricing for shipping, but might have to adjust depending on eventual cost from our secondary shippers.
