Noble Knight Games is really Awesome

I love my FLGS. I do.  I would rather buy from them for just about everything.
But every once in a while I find something somewhere else I want and I go with that store.

9 times out of 10, I get what I want.  But sometimes I take a risk and it doesn't pay off.
But then sometime the company I buy from makes it right and everything is great again.

Recently I have been going on about Quest of the Ancients.  I have a 1st Edition but not the 2nd Ed.  I saw Noble Knight Games had one for sale at a great price so I grabbed it.  Normally I wouldn't have, QotA is fun, but it's not great and I have the 1st ed.  Getting the 2nd ed would only be worth the satisfaction of my curiosity.  If I had seen at the store, I would have just spent a couple minutes flipping.
So I bought it anyway, knowing the risk.  And I ended up with a 1st Edition.

I contacted them and they bent over backwards to make it right. They didn't have a 2nd ed in stock, but they were completely awesome with want I did get.

I had ordered from them in the past and ALWAYS got great service and exactly what I wanted.  This aberration did nothing to make me think less of them.  Just the opposite, it made think more highly of them and I am more likely to order from them in the future.

I have a great local game store that can get me anything.  But those are planned purchases or stop in at the store and impulse buys.  Noble Knight is great when I am browsing on the net, come across a game I have never heard of or had forgotten about and then go over and see what it would cost.  If I like the price then I can get it.

So if you are unlike me and don't live within easy distance of a fantastic game store, then please give Noble Knight Games a look.

By virtue of being overseas, Noble Knight IS my FLGS. Those guys rock!

I'm a quick 40-minute drive from Noble Knight. They're fantastic. I have a solid local shop as well but, as a fan of older games as well as new, I find myself on NobleKnight.com regularly. Aaron and company are tops.

Yeah they are not that far from me either, but I missed my group's recent road trip up.

I'll make it there. ;)
