They were up until late last night. I don't think their being down is anything serious, on their website it was mentioned that they were doing an update of some sort today.

I've been trying them for the past couple of days, and I've had success.....but only at night! During the day, I get the "Site Under Construction" message all the time.

Sorry guys...we had a serious technical issue. Called the programmer in, he worked on it Friday and much of Saturday.

As of now, we're 100% up and running.

We're a bit behind but have a large shipment of games from this week's reorder to receive and add to the site...these should be online by 7 pm Sunday evening. the new Descent upgrade Kit, D-Day Dice, Dungeon Fighter and new LOR LCG expansion, lots of restock.

We also have a NEW site coming in September (hopefully), it is 80% done. We like it very much, but will let you be the judges of that in a month or two. We are taking our time to get it right, we have had it in active development since May.

Thanks to all for your patronage and patience!

Hi Andrew ... that doens't sound right, please make sure you refresh the page, it may be in your web browser cache.

Last fix was about 6 pm Saturday evening and we've been 100% good to go since then -- no downtime whatsoever (as far as I know).

thanks,
Sean

Truth be told, it worked for me from about 5:00 Eastern until 6:30 yesterday (Sunday) evening.
"Under construction" this morning.
Working fine, now.

The site worked fine for me Friday.

Fine enough that I ordered my games and got them on Wednesday. Over a holiday weekend. Games were packaged well, no damage, in a "home made" style.

This experience is typical from other reviews of their site.

Count me in as someone who will be a repeat customer.
