I just received my first order... They stock fantastic hard to find games at a very reasonable price!! Shipped quickly and with care. Wonderful customer service and communication throughout the whole process! I highly recommend the Game Steward.
I placed an order from the Game Steward on March 15th and my account was charged but I have never received my order. I have tried several times to contact the company by phone and messenger for order status information but no response.
Impressive customer service! Responsive and conscientious :)
Question - why does Google list your selling price for On Mars as $130, but your website has it as $207?
Got me a mat, promo pack, and a box of dragons. Thanks for the sale!
I am a customer that received a damaged Zombicide Invader Soldier pledge. I have also have been leaving phone messages and emails but it looks you are avoiding me. Can you respond to me and actually show me some respect when I paid almost double for this Kickstarter. Thank you for your time.
Hi. I tried emailing Dan & Michael from the Game Steward after noticing a backers-only update for Crisis at Steamfall -- which I ordered from the Game Steward's Kickstarter preorder special. So far no response. I'm trying to find out when to expect copies of the game to arrive in the US.
Have you guys received the wave 2 for green hoard yet?
So I have heard you will have a demo copy of Wreck and Ruin at Gen Con. I would love a chance to try it out! I am glad the Kickstarter finally succeeded; the game looks so great! Will you run demos every day?
I was so gutted that I missed out on the Zombiecide Green Horde Kickstarter campaign, then I saw it on your shop and it lit up my whole universe! I just placed an order and I’m the happiest little person you have ever seen. I can’t wait to get my Abominabunny!! Thank you!
Haha! Well that was exciting.
Any chance of you guys getting a few copies of the new printing of Antiquity? I'd love a copy but shipping is super expensive. Maybe you could get a bulk shipping discount of some kind.....I hope....please?

If you have not already done so, we invite you to join "Fans of The Game Steward" to get the latest news about new games, re-stocks, etc.

Hey everyone. We've been a bit too quiet lately, and want to make sure everyone knows that we have been busy beavers these last couple of weeks. With all the chaos going on, we want to give a special THANK YOU! to everyone who has ordered with us. It really means a lot.

So to clarify where things stand: our warehouse is open and we are operating on a normal schedule. Orders typically ship in 1-2 business days. We continue to receive new games, and (knock on wood!) we expect to keep operating on a normal schedule.

On that note, we recently received two GIANT game bundles this week - Planet Apocalypse and Edge: Dawnfall v1.6. Did we mention that these games are huge? And beautiful, and incredibly fun to play. Basically, they are exactly the kind of games that are only possible on Kickstarter.

We've also received several additional copies of some popular standbys:

Crusaders Deluxified (price reduced!)
Gentes Deluxified (price reduced!)
Chimera Station Deluxified (price reduced!)
Age of Steam Deluxe KS Edition

And we will be receiving a couple additional titles next week:

Starcadia Quest
Too Many Bones

We'll have some additional news to share next week, so stay tuned. We hope you all stay safe and are having fun playing awesome games!

Our Black Friday Sale Countdown has begun - just a little over 28 hours to go!...www.thegamesteward.com

[10/16/19]   We have some really exciting new to share with everyone.

First, we have hired our first full-time employee - Mary Grindstaff! Mary is our new Director of Fulfillment and Warehouse Operations, and will be handling the intake of new games, filling orders, and handling customer service matters that require shipping items out. Mary officially came on board October 1, although she's been helping us out for the last couple of months in an informal capacity.

Mary has been a friend of ours since college, and we are so happy that she's joining our team!

Second, we are FINALLY opening a new warehouse in Roanoke, VA! This will more than triple our current storage space, so we will no longer have to trip over boxes and each other while working in the warehouse to pack and ship orders.

*** PLEASE NOTE: we will be packing and moving to the new warehouse over the weekend of November 1-3, so fulfillment of new orders may be delayed during that time while we get everything set up in the new space.

The Game Steward is growing, and all of you have made that possible. Thank you to everyone for your business. We love what we do, and we hope you will continue finding the games in our store that excite you and give you many years of joy.

Escape Plan Review - with Tom Vasel

"It is an experience. It is the kind of game that gives you that deep, thoughtful euro game type feeling, but also the game I can tell a story about when it is over." - Tom Vasel

https://youtu.be/edX87Xr-Rtc

Tom Vasel takes a look at the new game from Vital Lacerda! Escape Plan! Join us for the Dice Tower Retreat: http://www.dicetower.com/dicetower-landing/dice-t...

FYI. We posted this in the "Fans of The Game Steward" FB Group. That is where will make all announcements first going forward. If you aren't a member yet, please join us and let us know your thoughts!

[05/13/19]   The Game Steward is considering free shipping with pickup at Origins. Would this interest you? Do you know anyone who might be interested in picking up a game at Origins?

We likely won't have a booth this year (but if that changes, we'll let everyone know!), but we could arrange with a partner publisher to work something out.

This would include brand new games like Escape Plan, Legends Untold, Neta Tanka, etc.

[05/11/19]   Wow. Just WOW!

We are totally thrilled (and humbled) by the amazing response to our sale. This is officially our most successful day ever!

We've enjoyed chatting, answering questions, and making suggestions to those of you who reached out. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all!

And in case you were worried that you missed out, we're adding a few more games to the sale. So you still have a chance to pick up some amazing Kickstarter games!

Coma Ward Kickstarter Premium Edition
Escape Room In a Box: The Werewolf Experiment (KS Edition)
Fireball Island Bundle (KS Edition)
Gorus Maximus KS Premium Edition

And maybe a few more before the weekend (and the sale) ends...

[05/09/19]   Okay, all you lovely people. The Game Steward will be holding its warehouse clearance sale on in-stock items tomorrow (Friday, May 10th). We don't have an exact time of launch, but it will be somewhere between 12:01 am and 9:00 am Eastern Time. Almost all in stock titles (no pre-orders) will be marked 5-80% off.

All the usual disclaimers - limited supplies, Ding & Dent games are "as-is", first come first served, etc. Some obscure stuff, some fairly new stuff, some very highly rated stuff.

If you have a question, leave it in the comments here. Please buy our stuff so we can make room for all the new games arriving in the next two months!

[05/07/19]   So...when a store's warehouse gets really full, and the store needs to clear some of that stuff out to make room for new stuff. That's a thing, right?

The Scarlet Pimpernel (Kickstarter Pre-Order Special)

Eagle-Gryphon Games has just shipped us another another excellent game, The Scarlet Pimpernel. It flew a bit under the radar on Kickstarter, but we now have it in stock. This is a gorgeous game, with beautiful artwork by Ian O'Toole - one of our favorite artists. And it's really fun to play too!

We have the "Signature" Edition, but please note that, due to changes made by the publisher after the KS campaign, our copies do not include a signed sticker/limited edition number. However, all other upgraded content (upgraded meeples, special favor tiles, special favor boards, and scarlet bag) are included.

Quodd Heroes - Hero Pledge (Kickstarter Pre-Order Special)

2019 is turning out to be the year of old Kickstarter projects finally delivering. The latest project is Quodd Heroes!

Even since Tom Vasel awarded Quodd Heroes the Dice Tower Seal of Excellence, it's been selling like hotcakes. But we still have a few copies left!

thegamesteward.com

[04/21/19]   We don't recall a time when so many games have all arrived so close to each other...it's a cornucopia of games - and our warehouse is getting ridiculously full. We might have to do something about that...

Quodd Heroes Review - with Tom Vasel

Quodd Heroes has been under the radar for a while, but Tom Vasel just dropped an excellent review, and we thought you might be interested. If you like action programming games like RoboRally, then definitely check out Quodd Heroes!

We have the Kickstarter Edition available, and it will be shipping in the next 2-3 weeks. We're excited to carry this indie game from a new publisher!
