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.

Our 2020 Black Friday Sale is now officially closed, and we want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH! To everyone who ordered a game from us, we hope you have hours of joy and entertainment with your new games.

And boy, did you guys order a lot! We're still working out the final numbers, but we saw a 50% increase in sales over last year's Black Friday Sale. That's simply amazing!

We tripled our warehouse staff to make sure that everything gets out as promptly as possible. We are still working on shipping out the last several orders (we're about 70% done), but we should have everything packed and out the door by the end of the week. If you haven't received a tracking # yet, we promise it will go out in the next 24-48 hours.

2020 has been such a challenging year (we'd use a lot of four letter words to describe 2020, honestly, but this is supposed to be a family friendly post!). So this sale has been a really positive and exciting way to finish the year. We're very excited about 2021, and we hope to have some very exciting news for you in the next several weeks.

As always, feel free to call or write us if you have any questions, and thank you again for ordering with The Game Steward.

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!

Less than 10 copies left, in case you want to get the Deluxe Edition of this amazing game!

The new games keep rolling out in 2020!

Today, we have a limited quantity of Sorcerer City Deluxe Edition!

This game is gorgeous, and incredibly fun to play.

"Every player starts Sorcerer City with a set of tiles, and in each round you have two minutes to build your city as optimally as you can. In between rounds you buy new tiles to add to your pool and gain other rewards. Beware though, monsters are lurking and will also be added to your deck, no doubt adding some chaos to your plans in the following rounds. After five rounds, add up all the victory points to see who is the master sorcerer builder!"

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.

FYI.  We posted this in the "Fans of The Game Steward" FB Group.  That is where will make all announcements first going ...

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.

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...

Hey TGS!.... regarding your Cleopatra Society of Architects KS game. Does your deluxe lot come painted?
Hey folks, sent you a message a couple of days ago and got no response. Posting here to see if that helps. Any update on fat cat? Last time I asked you told me August so checking to see if you know more now.
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!
