2007 Canadian Retailers Price Comparison Guide
- Sorin C(realnsd)Canada
I've found the 2005 and 2006 lists, but it seems nobody made a 2007 one. So I figured why not make one myself . In my list though I tend to focus more on local pick-up availability, as that is what makes or breaks a deal for me. Shipping costs have been included as well.Recommend
The stores I've looked at are the following:
Your Games Domain http://www.yourgamesdomain.com/new/
Fun Games Cafe http://fungamescafe.com/fgcIndex.php
The German Boardgame Company http://germangames.com/
J&J Cards & Collectibles http://www.jjcards.com/
Excalibur Comics http://www.excalibur-comics.com/
It seems that this year The German Boardgame Company (TGBC) takes the cake (at least for me). Even though some of the prices are higher than the Your Games Domain ones, shipping is cheaper at a flat $8 or $10, as opposed to $12. Note that TGBC charges an extra buck or two if the game box is heavy (this is specified on the game's page, if needed). They also offers local pickup as well.
Starlit Citadel practically blows the competition out of the water. The insanely competitive prices plus the free shipping for over $150 makes them my new favorite retailer. Being from ON makes the taxes less as well, which is a plus for me. They'll be getting my business from now on for sure !
1. Excalibur Comics is a random comic book store that I accidentally found. They were very nice, and able to give me some good deals (i.e. Carcassonne for $20 no tax). They have close to no games on hand, but get them to you by next Friday. I was able to order by phone, no deposit required.
2. GermanGames only had damaged Carcassonne boxes at the time of writing.
Any comments/additions/suggestions are more than welcome.
Happy holidays !
