Greetings,

I noticed in the where to buy games in nz thread there was a site called urban games based in Kaiapoi.

Checked their site and they have 2 games listed as in stock that I'm keen on, that are "more or less" out of print, or somewhat difficult to get.

The prices are right, but its hard to tell how up to date the website is, and under their contact us details, there is no phone number or street address, and just an xtra email address.

So, has anyone had dealings with them, preferably recently, or have a phone number for them?

My avatar may be a sheep, but I dont want to get fleeced.

J.H.

They're okay. I've bought 1 game, possibly two from them but not recently- so maybe 2 years ago. They also came to Armageddon and had a stall.

The best place to find them is on TradeMe.

I thought someone told me they moved down from Auckland a few years ago...

edit - just checked I got my copy of Hermagor from them within the last 6 months, it was brand new in box at $40. It would be a bargain if I could get anyone to play it.

Sent them an email around 10ish yesterday got a reply around 3ish, which in itself is good service.

The 1 game that I thought was out of stock and really wanted is actually out of stock and they updated their website to reflect that

So it goes.

The other game is difficult to get so may place an order with them, will let you know how it works out.

The now out of print "Mall of Horror"

Sadly multiple copies of it languished in ToyWorld in Dunedin for months before they shifted sites, now not 1 to be seen.

Always meant to get it then found out its gone.

Good news theres a Mall of Horror 2 coming so might have to wait for that.

Yeah, as you say, it's out of print.

There are a couple of copies in the marketplace, but they aren't either cheap or close.

Have you tried eBay? Failing that, you may need to wait for the sequel.

There's two in Australia listed for trade..... that's where I would start.

You might want to consider waiting for the revised 2nd edition. I had the original and sold it a couple of months ago. It's an ok game, but the rules definitely needed some work. It sounded really fun on paper, but never played out as we hoped. I'll be taking a look at the new version when it comes out and may pick it up again depending on what changes, if any, have been made.
