Just wanted to post a positive experience. Had some games on hold for, oh maybe 6 weeks with Sean at greatboardgames.ca. I love holds. Holds = free shipping! Sean's communication was very good and I got my hands on Nemo's War, Lost Expedition, Colditz and a couple of others today. All arrived fine despite the wildfires on BC! Thanks Sean.

Agreed. They have been the source of most of my games.

I, too, have bought several games from them. I can heartily recommend them!

Yes, excellent place to shop. Now if they could just get the shipping down to $8.95.

I ordered for the first time from Great Board Games. It took 3 business days for my order to be processed and another week to be shipped to me. Some of my game boxes arrived damaged; one had the outside corner crushed and the inside corner ripped apart, the other had a ripped edge. I was able to get a partial refund for the games but that took a week & a half to process. I did not find any problem getting a refund and I got a response quickly, however, the time it took for processing was longer than most stores I have ordered from. The games I ordered game packaged with rolled paper around them - air pockets, or peanuts, would probably protect games better.
Great Board Games has great prices and a good amount of stock but they need to work on processing items quicker to the customer and package their mail better.

I ordered some stuffs on Jul 27. Now it's Aug 1, so after 3 business days, whose definition they specially clarify as if nobody ever understood, my order is still being processed, and I have got no tracking number or whatever. I've also purchased games on stores like woodforsheep, boardgamebliss, those stores provide much better shopping experience. Now I just hope that my stuffs would arrive intact.

I was in the same boat. I ordered overnight on the 26th, didnt get notification from canada post until 5 business days later, on the 2nd. great prices but weak delivery times. Still, affordable enough that i'll probably buy from them again, unless i really needed something asap

Yes, if it doesn't bother you to wait for notification, processing, & delivery, then there's no reason not to buy from them. I do wonder if the business is a side-job, & that is why things take longer? I believe GBG is a warehouse operation.

I order from them regularly, they're likely still my most-ordered from place (with bliss and 401 being close), but yes they take a few days to process.

Generally I've been building an order for like a month+ though so an extra few days wait hasn't bothered me whatsoever.
