Winter has us fully in its grasp. Northern Alabama is generally mild...so we're not used to this! Brrrr! The new releases have slowed down, which is good as it allows everyone to catch up with all of the amazing games that have arrived lately. We have restocked items all over the store, and added few new preorders as well. A good week all around.
For those new to the weekly store update, it's usually Eric behind the keyboard. I'll point out a few interesting things that happened around here last week. However, if you're not interested in any of that you can just jump to the very bottom and see what Restocks, New Products, and Preorders we added. For those interested in some shop talk, let's get to it, shall we?
We have begun sponsoring a new content creator. His name is Jason, and he goes by neotrunks2002 on Board Game Geek. Jason authors the Meeple, Myself and I solo review page. Now, we don't sponsor many folks as we demand quality and there is a lot of substandard work out there. However, well written and honest reviews go a long way in helping readers make informed decisions, and Jason brings it in spades! With so many available games, folks generally have to juggle between finances, time, or both and that's where trustworthy reviews come in handy. We'll provide Jason with games and he'll do his magic. We consider activities like this our way of continuing to help the gaming community, even if just a little.
The second bit of news is a public service announcement that this is our busiest time of the year for store operations. We're conducting our 100% inventory and reconciling everything from 2020. The first two weeks of January are a flurry of activity, and generally I try to have everything done by the 15th. Based on where I am right now, I think we're going to miss that mark by a few days. In any case, I bring it up only to say that's why it may take me a bit longer to answer you than normal. It's not impacting our shipping times though, as you've probably noticed.
Also, heads up, we are anticipating a giant Arkham Horror and The Lord of the Rings card game restock / new items add this week. Over 30 new and restocked titles! We anticipate all the new items will be up by Thursday. This is just the first wave too, we have more to come!
In any case, below are the Restocks, New Items, and Preorders added to the shop last week. You can click on the item to learn more, many of the products have review and gameplay videos so you can see the game in action.
