The Game Steward

The Game Steward is an online game store offering Kickstarter and imported games at reasonable prices. It's time to play!

The Game Steward was founded to bring hard to find games to gamers with a friendly smile and a reasonable price. We sell games, expansions, and promos that are often half the price of what you'd find on eBay from other sellers. Kickstarter Games, Imported Games, and Out of Print Games - we do our best to offer the games you are looking for that you can't find anywhere else.

Mission: To provide a high quality experience to those purchasing Kickstarter board games, out of print, and imported and games at reasonable prices.

[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

Tom Vasel takes a look at the new game from Vital Lacerda! Escape Plan! Join us for the Dice Tower Retreat:

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...

All Games

THE SALE IS ON! All Kickstarter Games at The Game Steward.

Neta Tanka: Deluxe Pledge (Kickstarter Special)

Speaking of needing more warehouse space...Neta Tanka has just arrived!

This big, beautiful, and heavy game is now in stock! Supplies limited, so don't wait!

[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?
