Carcassonne Shoppe Closure
« on: April 07, 2015, 08:18:25 AM »
Sorry for another sad announcement today. After many years, we are finally closing up the Shoppe. The direction where the Shoppe is going was not what we had envisioned. Too many communication issues and roadblocks with what we want to do.

We would like to thank Hans im Glück, Carcassonne On Tour, and Klaus-Jürgen Wrede for all the amazing support they had given us along the way. We would also like to thank Carcassonne Central - without you guys, we wouldn't have existed for so long! And of course, we would like to thank our loyal customers for supporting us at every launch date.

But it wouldn't be a proper send off without an awesome going out of business sale.  O0 The first week, (starting right now), every boxed game is 50% off! We also have signed Spiel 14 tiles. Each week will have a different sale.

PM me for for a list of remaining items from the Carcassonne Shoppe.

Hello Ted, this news is very bad.
Some time ago I had to close my comic book store, I understand that this can be a big disappointment, I hope everything goes well.
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Very regrettable news. I liked the fact that Carcassonne Shoppe offered unique items. We will miss that.

NOOO!!!!! Carcassonne The Discovery just sold out! I was finally going to buy the five stand-alones I don't have (that I actually want): Discovery, Winter Edition, South Seas, Gold Rush, and Travel Edition. I picked up the last four, but I couldn't order until I got home this evening and Discovery was gone by then. Any chance there is a lingering copy still available, Carcatronn? I've been holding off getting that for years now (clearly).

Also, is there any way to buy two copies of Big Box 5 in the same order? I know it has to ship by itself, but could it ship with a like-sized friend? I want to get a copy and I also want to buy one for a wedding gift for a friend. Thanks!

Sorry about the Discovery, that truly was the last one. I honestly did not expect to sell 90% of our boxed games on DAY 1 - speechless. Since you are buying so much, I should be able to fit the x4 games and the x2 Big Boxes in one big shipping box. There are only 4 Big Boxes left, so if you would like to checkout through the website and reserve two of them, we will simply remove all of the excess shipping when it's time to process.

I ended up splitting the order between two addresses. Do what you can to reduce shipping. I appreciate any discount you can give. Thank you for your years of awesomeness!!!
