Anyone have any experience dealing with BigBox games? I am considering placing an order and wanted to ask around before doing so.

Just a quick price check between BigBox Games and Boards & Bits for Agricola and Cosmic Encounter shows you would save about $20 at B&B.

Not scientific.

I believe you are correct in general, BigBox seems to have ~20% discount whereas Boards&Bits, Cool Stuff, & Mini Market are usually in the 30% to 40% range.

However, I am looking to buy some old Magic Theme Decks which seem to be sold out or at a premium price everywhere else ($8 at BigBox vs $24 on Amazon). So I just wanted to make sure that they were a reliable operation.

Thanks.

OK. I have never dealt with them. Sorry I can't help.

I just put my first order in with them on Monday of this week.

No update/status on the order, so I emailed them this morning just to see what's what (no reply yet).

Hopefully they'll reply - I can tell you the 800 number shown for them on PayPal does not work. That doesn't bode well.
