Customer Service and Product Selection
Unlike many deep discounters, we value our relationship with our customers. We want to serve you, not just drop the next book in your lap for a quick buck. Unlike the big book stores (online and brick & mortar) we have a huge selection of all sorts of products. With the largest selection of dice in the Mid-West and all the newest products (and custom unique ones), we hope to keep you coming back on a regular basis.
We also own the RPGHost Network of resource sites for gamers, including the very popular RPGSheets.com, RPGNews.com and our RPGLife.com. For Magic the Gathering and Legend of the Five Rings singles, check out our associates at Some Guy's Cards. The owner of our stores was also the founder / pioneer of the largest RPG eBook site on the web: RPGNow.com where you can get many quality books as PDF downloads that never make it to print.
By gamers for gamers!
To all of you, from all of us - Thank you and Happy eCommerce!
- We offer low cost priority mail shipping option to all continental US addresses. We mainly use USPS Priority Mail, which usually arrives in 2-4 business days depending on your location. We are located in Wisconsin (Mid-west USA).
Most orders ship within 1-3 business days (weekends not included) but some orders may take a few extra business days as we replenish stock. We stock nearly $100,000 in inventory and receive daily shipments from 3 distributors, so you can be assured of faster service with us. If an item is on backorder we will let you know via e-mail and give you the option to remove the item from your order.
If you want faster delivery, you can select Express Shipping from USPS. You can have your package shipped USPS Express (normally 1 day delivery to about 85% of the US, 2 days max). But remember, this will only shorten the time it takes to deliver from our warehouse - if we had to get your item from our distributor, delivery to you may still take more than the 2 days.
For overseas residence, please review our Foreign Policy below before ordering.
- We ship using the fastest, most economic method possible--usually USPS Air Mail. Overseas shipping normally costs between $15.00 - $45.00 depending on the size and weight of your order.
You will be responsible for any additional duties, tariffs, taxes, or any other fees charged by your customs office. NOTE: These days many customs offices hold your package without notice! Remember to check there first.
We recomend you use the PayPal payment service to pay for your order if you don't live in the USA as it will speed up your order verification. If you don't have a paypal account you can still use their credit card processing which is less problematic for foreign customers.
If you use your credit card during out site checkout, it may fail in our security check for many reasons. While we'd gladly ship to you, your credit card has to process properly first. If you have a problem, please contact your bank.
NOTE: Sometimes failed attempts (declines) will show up on your online statement at your bank as complete. But this is only an reserve and will go away in a few days. Do not be alarmed.
