Sorry if this topic has been covered (I'm sure it has; seems like it would be).

Anyway, I'd like to hear y'all's opinion on which online retailer is good and for what reason(s).

Are they sent in a timely fashion? Do they have low prices, good customer service? Do they package their games well to protect them, and are the games in good condition upon arrival? Do they smell like rotting athlete's foot because they were packaged in a recycled shoebox? (I'm looking squarely at you, Tanga!) angry

I appreciate your input, as it's very important to me where I shop. The above questions don't necessarily have to be ALL met, but if you prefer one or more of those requisites, which site(s) are known for excelling in them?

Thanks in advance!

If you are selling something then strikezoneonline.com generally pays the most.

If you are buying, then miniaturemarket.com
15+ purchases with no issues.

Amazon. Hands down.


Oh, you meant for boardgames? Well, I still do much of my shopping on Amazon, but Boards & Bits and Time Well Spent are the other two stores I shop at.

I will throw in on the Miniature Market band wagon. Very good service and often times the best price I can find with one of the lowest free shipping thresholds.

Hi, noticed you are a minimalist fan. I watched a show on the subject and was wondering if you lived out of garbage cans and if so where do you find most of your games?

Hey, I'm not sure what you mean...but I'm a fan of minimalism music. I don't live in a trash can and I budget very carefully to purchase my games.

I've had nothing but good experiences buying from coolstuffinc. I just got an order this last week, which I opened today. Everything was in good shape and none of my games smelled like gym shoes. The prices are usually among the lowest I've found and I always take advantage of the free shipping.

Boards & Bits.

Love the prices, selection and people. I have never had anything even approaching a problem and have been utterly satisfied every time.
