As tempting as this is, I will never give my business to Wayland Games.

Shoddy business practices and poor customer support. They'll sell you something and then reveal that it wasn't actually in stock, then take several months to (maybe) get it in.

There are a number of threads in the Discussing Retailers forum detailing peoples' experience with them.

I bought from them once, and it left such a bad taste (which I know is not unique to me) that I'll go out of my way to avoid doing so again.

Thanks for the explanation. thumbsup

I can see how that sort of delay and uncertainty with a limited edition game, would drive you to a different retailer!

Now I'm getting a Kickstarter-like feeling, but what's done is done! Which are the reliable e-stores?

Hopefully it'll be okay... They wouldn't still be in business if literally every order went wrong. Just be prepared for them to be a pain, and it'll be a pleasant surprise if you get it on time

As for reliable sites:
BoardGameExtras
BoardGameGuru
Chaos Cards

Made a couple of orders from Weyland before and after a wait of a couple of weeks I emailed them and they told me the items were out of stock.
Wouldn't give them a third chance.

Add Green Knight Games and IGUK to the good e-retailers list.

I was so impressed with Iron Kitten Games, LLC I want to add them here, even though they only sell Lunarchitects.

I had unpleasant experience with BoardGameGuru, despite the worship that Paul receives in this forum. On the other hand I had a good shopping experience with shop4world for 10+ orders for now.

What's your case there? I had 3-4 orders without any complications.

Almost anyone listed on www.boardgameprices.co.uk (except Wayland) gives acceptable if not excellent service most of the time. Sometimes things go wrong, of course, but that can happen to anyone - the measure of quality is how well and how quickly they put things right.

Buy on price via boargameprices and you'll be fine.

I have to agree that IGUK were once a great company.

I do not mind some unexpected problems but ......not updating your stocks, and not getting a refund even after complaining in several emails..kind of make you promise yourself..not again in a hundred years!

Dont think IGUK have been open for a long time. Their website stopped being updated over 6 months ago and appears to just link to an email address now.

My last order never showed up, no refund given and in the end had to file a paypal claim. Sad times as used to be my go to new release company.

Strictly Chaos cards and gameslore these days.

I will say I have just tried "board game hut" following some good feedback, for a pre-order, and the communication so far has been spot on

Yeap, I've not ordered from more than year ago. I don't find any good deals there to be honest.
