I recently discovered Gamesurplus. They are a great source of import games that you can't find anywhere else in the US (or you can find them at Funagain but a lot more expensive).

I emailed them a couple of times about availability of different games, and Thor answered within minutes in a very friendly tone.

I eventually placed an order with them, it arrived quickly and very well packaged, but one small game (Hanabi) was missing. I emailed them and they immediately sent a replacement along with another small game to make up for the inconvenience.

So all around, I'm extremely impressed with them and I'm looking forward to buying more games from them. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Concur with positive statements about Thor and his business. I had a great experience ordering from GS when I could not find certain games at CSI, my usual source.

Game Surplus is absolutely the best when it comes to imports. They have come through numerous times for me not only acquiring requested imports but additionally tagging them with a great price.

Gamesurplus is a good business to work with. I do wish they had some sort of "Notify me when this game is back in stock" type button like some of the other sites have because I always feel like I'm bugging them when I email to ask the question of availability...

Yes, me too! I asked Thor about at least setting up an RSS feed for their news page, but they need to talk to their web guy. So in the meanwhile I made one myself: http://feed43.com/6721860553248585.xml

Also, if you want to be notified by email whenever their news page changes: https://www.changedetection.com/log/gamesurplus/news2_log.ht...

Or you can even set up yourself a changedetection for the game you're waiting to be stocked. Works pretty well!

Hi, all.

I'm also very grateful for Game Surplus and Thor. We are a small producer of the games in Ukraine, and Thor kindly agreed to try sales of our 'Admiral' game in his store.

So I feel something uncomfortable that this attempt was not finished successfully because of my side: we made a contract with a distributor and because of the contract details we are unable to finish the deal with Game Surplus.

By this message posted here and in few other BGG pages I want once more to say: Thank you, Game Surplus & directly Thor for your support!
