The Essen board game show is only 6 weeks away, time for us to make some space for the huge number of new games coming in shortly before/after the show.
Our yearly autumn sale has started and we posted the first 24 specials. All games are at least reduced by 20% compared to the normal price. All offers are valid while stocks last.
We will refill the offers section and add new games in the coming days and week, so please keep checking our website. The Autumn sale will run until the 15th of October (or until we run out of special offers).
Our first board game auction after the summer break is now live on our Facebook page.
This time we are selling:
- Terraforming Mars
- First Class (German edition / played copy)
- Frogridders (played copy)
- Spoils of War

We will be at Dragondaze 2017 with a sales stand. Dragondaze is a Games Convention & Mini Comic Con in Newport, Wales on the 30th September.
The venue is the Newport Centre (1 Kingsway) and the event is starting at 10am and ends at 5pm.
If you are coming to Dragondaze you can place an order with us for collection: just choose the Dragondaze collection option during checkout instead of your normal shipping option.
