How do you keep your prices competitive?

We are a small company with a limited budget for advertising. We rely predominantly on word of mouth, and if you've had a good experience buying from us, we'd love it if you referred Advent Games to someone you know. No matter how small, every post, every like, every tweet is another potential customer, and another potential for us to grow the business and bring you more (and cheaper!) games. Why not head over to the Facebook Page and leave a review? 

Do I have to register in order to buy from the store?

You have two options: you may register as a member which allows you to login to monitor your order, or you may puchase items as a guest without registration. Please ensure all delivery and email information is entered correctly.

Which edition is the game? Is it the Deluxe Kickstarter?

Unless otherwise stated, all games are English retail editions. If a title is German language (usually because an English version is not yet available), the product title will have a tag to say so and rule linked in the product description. If a title was purchased through Kickstarter by us, it will have a (KS) or tag. Otherwise, please assume all games are a retail edition, purchased locally through local distribution channels. If you need to know more about the difference between a Kickstarter and retail edition of the game, definitely check out the original Kickstarter page - anything there marked as "KS Exclusive" will NOT be in a retail edition. The Boardgamegeek page for a game is also a great place to ask for info about differences in Retail and KS Editions.   And if a game has two different retail editions, Regular vs. Deluxe, the product title will clearly mark any (DELUXE) version.  If it doesn't clearly state it, it will be a regular version.

Why are board games prices so expensive in Australia?

Apart from US and Germany, most countries in the world do not mass-produce board games, nor own the publishing rights to popular intellectual properties, nor have the mass of board game consumers which could leverage container loads of games to reduce freight expenses.

As a comparison, the freight component of video games per $ is far less than board games which have much bigger, and heavier, boxes. Shipping across national boundaries is full of logistical challenges. Airfreight is not cost inefficient, yet shipping by slow container boat would see games arriving late and with decreased interest. 

We hope to soon see a thriving board-game producing community here in Australia, as well as better and cheaper shipping from China, US and Europe. All of these will serve to bring games to you quicker and cheaper.  :)

Can I pick up my order?

Yes you can! We have regularly scheduled pickups on a Tuesday night at the Northside Gamers Group in Chatswood. Please refer to the Pick Up Locations page for more information.

Can I add items to an unshipped order?

If you have a current order with shipping and wish to add more items, simply select Local Pickup at the checkout for your new order, and note in the comments that you'd like them combined. And if it takes you over the $300 free shipping mark, we'll refund your shipping cost!
