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

Site Updates & Conventions
This month, between August 13 – 14, 2011, a new convention is happening in Vancouver called Cos & Effect. It’s mostly a cosplay / steampunk event, but we will be hosting a gaming section right next to our vendor’s booth at their request. Lots of our open board games available to demo & play so drop by if you are in the neighborhood.
The first two of three posts concerning our survey results are out. These posts deal directly with the comments at the end of the survey. We’ll also provide select answers from the survey in our 3rd post later this month.
Lastly, we’ve added a new Google +1 link on the homepage. Please use if you have a Google Account to support us.

Dixit : Odysey has again been delayed, now we’re being told middle of this month but I’d caution optimism – we’ve had the release date changed on us 4 times already. On other notes, the Twilight Struggle reprint is expected sometime this month as is Rune Age and the next Lord of the Rings Adventure Pack.
