The Board Game Shop is here!

After a great deal of planning, coding and largely faffing around, we are very proud and generally pleased as punch to launch The Board Game Shop, a new online shop for board games based in the UK. To celebrate we are offering 10% off absolutely everything on the store! (Just add the code “WELCOME” when you checkout)

This site has been created by just two guys with a passion for board games and a desire to create something new.

A while back we realised that the options for board gamers shopping online really weren’t all that great. A lot of specialist sites out there were clunky to use or ugly as hell. So, with backgrounds in visual, web and interaction design as well as retail operations and customer service, we decided to try and rock the boat.

We really want to generate discussion about the games we sell, so not only do we have Facebook and Twitter pages for you to check out but we have community forums for the site as well. We hope to have a number of features added as we go and there’ll be competitions too (in fact there is one going on right now!)

As we said, we’re just two guys trying to do something cool, our range will expand and we will hold a lot more stock but in the meantime we just want to say thanks in advance for your patience and support. In return for shopping with us, we hope to deliver you with an all round excellent experience, from a well designed site through to fast, free courier delivery.

We have all kinds of plans for the future: new features, community tools, meet ups and more and we hope you’ll enjoy following us as we undertake this exciting new venture.

Thanks again.

Jesse and Luke
