Best Dang Games Partners with Amazon

As you may have noticed, if you visited the home page of Best Dang Games, we are in the midst of a growth change.

We had such an incredible first year that we decided it was time to make a change for the better and partner with a “best of breed” company that can deliver your products in the best, most expediant manner and offer us a way to lower your shipping costs. The search delivered us Amazon Services.

We are still the same Best Dang Games with the same Best Dang Games service (actually probably better now). It is still Barry Nadler and Gary Bacchus. We have also added another player, Shawn Wolen to the team. We will introduce him at another time.  The point is – it is all for the better.

Amazon allows us to offer you pricing that INCLUDES shipping. So you may see our prices go up a little, but remember…they will include shipping. When you compare our prices to others, make sure you include shipping in your comparison. We looked and we are still very competitve. There will be a handling fee for all orders under $25, but that is it. If you order over $25.00, shipping is part of the price you will see.

Now, the best part…you can order from us directly on Amazon. com as well. We are in the process of moving all our primary products to that site. If you shop there, you also get free shipping for orders over $25.00. You get all the benefits of shopping on Amazon, as well – including their phenomenal service and quick and professional shipping practices. It does mean that you may receive your games from us in an box, but oh well – it is still from us.

Please be patient with us while our pricing undergoes a slight modification process. If you are concerned about a price you see on our site and wonder if it is accurate, feel free to drop us a line and ask – better to be safe than disappointed. We understand.

We are constantly working to find better ways to serve the gaming community – both with better products, better service, better information, and more value. If there is anything you would like to see us look into, please drop us a line or leave a comment. We are always looking for input. That’s how we get better.

New Board Game Bundle of the Month! Settlers, Carcassonne, and Puerto Rico

We wanted to let everyone know that we have decided to move towards a Board Game Bundle of the Month, rather than a single board game/card game.

This month, we are spotlighting the three core strategy board games that every gamer should own: Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, and Puerto Rico.

Typically, this game bundle would be $70.00. But, because of the holiday season, and we know this would make someone an AWESOME gift, we are leaving it on sale through Dec. 31. The sale price is: $52.50. That averages less than $18.00 per game. If there ever was a time to get these three games, now is the time!

You can check out the bundle for yourself at Here is the bundle.

Happy Holidays!

Lowered Prices on Prime Games

I just wanted to write a quick note to everyone and let you know that we have completed a complex chore for you and results of this effort are coming your way!

We Shopped the Competiton

First, we shopped the competiton’s prices. Yup, we went trolling other sites and noted the prices everyone is selling strategy and hobby board games. This includes about four or five other game stores, Amazon, and eBay. Now, this is not an exact science because we can not take into account the differences in shipping costs – some people offer free shipping, while others offer a lower competitive price and charge more for shipping to offset that, while even others offer free shipping…but only after you buy several games in one order. So, realize that the lowest price is not always the LOWEST PRICE.

How Important is Service?

There is also something to be said for service. It is great to find a store you like and that actually responds when you ask a question. How about one that will offer discounts to repeat customers? Oh, and what about one that gives you free stuff when you order…like popcorn, Bits Bags, or plastic boxes for protecting game cards. How much is that worth?

The point is that you should not be fooled into buying somewhere just because they have the lowest price. I am not saying that we are not the cheapest. Sometimes we are. Othertimes, we are competitive. We are certainly not the most expensive.

We Lowered Many of our Prices

Once we did our research, we did find that our prices needed a little tweaking, so we went through and performed a “Wal Mart” and rolled back many of the prices on our primary games. So, we invite you to come over to and give us another look – that game you wanted may be just a little cheaper now.

Our First Person to Cash In on Best Dang Points

We want to throw a hearty “Congratulations! and Thanks” out to Charles Cabell of South Carolina.

Charles is the first customer to take advantage of a program we have had for about four months now called Best Dang Points. Charles submitted 75 Best Dang Points and received about four games for it.

The way this program works is that you submit your works to us and we give you points in return. You then horde your points and eventually convert them to cash.

1 Point = $1. Very simple.

What types of works am I describing. We would like to publish your gaming photos, articles or enlongated reviews, or videos of games we currently offer. We both win. It takes a lot of time for us to put out all the content you all like to have. Besides, I assume that after some time you want to hear from other gamers in the community, rather than just me. So, we trade your time for games.

The really cool part is that you can even cover your shipping costs with points. So, you could get games that are completely FREE games. We just removed this whole mess of trying to find which online store has the cheapest games. Write us a couple of articles and nobody beats our price – including FREE SHIPPING with enough points.

Charles’ articles are in the submission state on right now, under our user name – bestdanggames. Once they are available, we will post links here for you to read them for yourself.

By the way, let me quell this concern right now. You are given credit for your work. You will be listed as the author of the article, not us. Also, if you have a site you want us to link to for you, we will do that in the credits of the article.

Here is a link to Charles Cabell’s personal site.

If you plan to use this program, you need to submit your work to us before it is posted anywhere.

Here are Charles’ articles:
Looking for Something New To Play?
War Games and Historical Games – Can You Change History?
Bringing the Family Together – Again

We will be at Half Off Books Tomorrow 8/2/2008

I know…I am a bit late on this post. We have been very busy this week and the announcement got away from me.

If you are in Orlando, FL and want to come out and play some games tomorrow (8/2/2008) we will be at the Half Off Books store in Altamonte Springs. They are located next to the Checkers and across from Popeye’s and Rooms To Go.

As always, it is free to come out, visit, and play a game or two. We are happy to share our knowledge of the games we have. If you want, you can pick up a new game or two. It will be WAY cheaper than going to a local hobby shop. Why? Because you don’t have to pay for shipping. At the local shops, you will probably find that shipping is included as part of the typical price. By the way, if you plan to come and buy a game, cash is a prefered method, but we can work with a credit card.

If you don’t mind an open game, we will even sell you an open game at a discount price. All our open games are fairly new and hardly used – mostly demo copies.

We will be there from 10 AM to 5 PM. Come out and see us.
