You have found a secret page, shared with friends of the owner, and other close fans. (If you don't know Ian personally, try this very similar page.)
The online shop only focuses on selling games that we (me and you guys) love, that I'm able to make (Game Night Ready)™— but I also love connecting people with the games they love too, and learning about new games.
Use this page if you'd like to special order a game, or any game accessories. I like helping you by getting you a good price on a wide variety of games, and it helps me reach my distributor's free-shipping minimum, and gives me an excuse to talk to you when I drop it off or arrange shipping. If you worry about that sort of thing: I'm not doing you an expensive favor, we're trading favors in a mutually beneficial way. I'm still left with a margin, and I won't feel weird for charging a friend full price.
PRICING (for you):
20% off MSRP with Free Shipping to the US, with the following limitations:
- I can try to match in-stock pricing that you find online, including Amazon, if you mention it.
- I'm not allowed to sell any game below MAP (minimum advertised price).
- Dropping off the next time I see you, or best-rate shipping, is free.
- Shipping to Canada is "our" normal flat-rate $10.
- Games will ship to me once I have a minimum order with the distributor (to get free shipping). That may take a while, but it means your order helps me save money.
- You won't lose me any money-- If the wholesale cost of the game, plus shipping both ways, wouldn't make me at least one penny, I'll let you know. You don't need to feel guilty.
- When I sent your game, I'll ask if you want an invoice to pay by card, or to pay me in person. Don't pay until you receive the game, I'll just feel guilty.
The form below is not a purchase form. It sends me an email, and I should be able to reply the same day, confirming what I can get you, and how much it will come to. Once you confirm that you want it, and how you want to pay, I'll add it to my next order with the distributor, and (for credit cards) send you an invoice via email. Please don't pay me until you receive your stuff..
