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".

Let me know what you "need" and I'll start stocking it!

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!!

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.

Jason,

Do you have space for gaming inside the shop, or is this just a retail store?

Well we're still getting set up, but the plan is to have a small area for gaming. A couple tables, nothing serious, where you can bring your own game or play one of ours. No charge!

Was in just the other day to have a peek! It's a very welcoming little spot and the comic folk (whom I believe they are sharing space with) did a great job at showing us around and being great hosts. Great to see some excellently priced brick and mortar competition! Way to go! Will DEFINITELY be giving them my business! meeple

Discovered this gem of a store today and was very happy to find a board game store on the south-end of the city.

I know the owner and he puts a ton of effort and time into gaming community and the store. Well worth supporting him. He has the best prices and friendly. Mind you he is a killer devil game player. You play games with him at your own risk.

blush You overexpress my game-playing prowess. Unless we're playing Spot It!.. I'm pretty solid there. ;-)

I stopped in yesterday to visit, and introduce myself to Jason but missed him. Robert was amazing in showing us around, introducing us to some titles, and my kids love the shop. We ended up taking Machi Koro and Love letter home, but also left with a new 'home' gaming store.

Well done Jason, and I can tell you - the south side should be very happy to have you!

If you tell me I can use my paypal account to pay online, and pickup in store - I'll be a very happy camper!

My first day off in a long time, sorry I missed you! You can definitely pay with PayPal and pick up in store. http://www.apttogame.com

Not everything is on the site that is in store, but I can add whatever you like!

Thanks for this great feedback.

Any chance of picking up an order I'm about to place today?

Better question - any coupon codes active at the moment :wink-wink:

Edit- Meh! Ordered anyway...
