Never ordered from them before, but had them on my radar when they were called "The Zone."
Since changing their name to "Apt to Game" I had a look at their site. Prices seem fair; especially since, according to their shipping policy, they offer free "local delivery" once a week to Calgary, Edmonton, or "anywhere between - along Highway 2."

They're 15 min away from me WOOT!

I'm going to have to buy a new shelf if they start stocking stuff I "need".

They do not have anything atm that I want..which might be because I have all my current 'must have' games. hah Their name change was because of an issue with the microsoft game site.

More new releases. You might also check out the "bestsellers" lists on some of the other OLGSes.

I wouldn't expect you to be listing dozens of new/restocked games multiple times a week like some of the bigger sites, but a wider selection would be appreciated (Catan and Dominion- been there, done that.)

I may see you there. I've seen their ad on Kijiji but didn't realize that there in Black Falls. Finally I don't have to go to Edmonton or Calgary. I know Red Deer has a game store and I'm not knocking it but it's nice to be able to go to more than just one store without doing an hour and a half drive.

This kind of feedback is invaluable and I really appreciate it. I have been scanning other sites' "bestseller" lists and have been starting to widen my selection. There are so many titles available, I didn't know where to start, so I started with the big titles - Catan and Dominion like you mentioned.

If you're taking requests, I was looking for Hive and surprised you didn't carry it. Looking for good vacation games and this fits the bill.

Some other feedback, it would be good if in the search that you could indicate on a listing or filter by in-stock and out-of-stock. Also with pre-orders if you could include in the text the expected dates for arrival.

Good Luck - will be ordering for Calgary sometime soon, prices are competitive and there are games I want, just need to find the budget!!

Highly recommended!

I have added this to my next order, expect it to show up on the site soon!

This is a great idea, I will see what I can do to implement it. This is a fundamental change to the website programming, so don't expect it to happen overnight.
