I consider you the best dealer in wargames for selection, price and service.
Richard P., APO October 1997
I received my shipment yesterday....I was impressed by many things - that you
even had such items for starters, the speed of your response, and the condition of the games. Wonderful all
Matt N., New York, NY December 1996
I must not allow myself to peruse your catalog unsupervised or I'll spend
altogether TOO much $.
Tom J., Ft. Collins, Colorado April 1995
"Fun" in this sense: I pick up catalog; I see item(s) I want. I e-mail
you, you e-mail me; item(s) arrive in a day or two. The entire process takes perhaps 5 minutes all told; I have
complete faith that the order will arrive as advertised and on time. What could be more "fun" than
that? A Satisfied Customer.
Rob C., Ypsilanti, MI March 1999
Received my order today, and just wanted to say I've been extremely pleased with
your service the few times I've used it. Your website is easy to follow, you are very responsive to one's
inquiries, and your order filling is prompt. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to doing more business
Dave B., Duluth, MN January 2001
With all the games you stock, I might have to use Fine Games as my default board
games supplier from now on. Darn..... :-) *smile*
Jared B., Palo Alto CA July 2001
Some of the "small" games I
have purchased from you were a rare find and have been such a delight
to play with my young nieces and nephews ("One Upon a Time
..." card game) that I feel you deserve the first look before any
other seller/distributor/store. Thank you for happening to have the
games and game items that have continued to allow me to indulge in my
hobbies while spending (quality) time with all family members. Lee

Responsiveness & Fast Order Turn-Around
I placed a large order for ASL
stuff...and just wanted to drop you a note to say I am extremely
pleased with the products and services Fine Games offers....These games
came well packaged and in pristine condition as described. Again many
thanks!!! Murray D., Port Hardy, BC,
Canada June 2004
30 minutes since I paid and you've
packed and labeled my order [already]? How come I don't have it yet!!!
Evan M, Sept. 2010
I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for the games [just received]....
Since I had such a wonderful experience with you I thought I would see if you could locate [2 more games] for
me. I found them on another "site" the same time I found yours originally and am still waiting to
hear back from them which I am guessing means that they no longer have them.
Tammy M., Fremont, NE October 2000
[I needed some games by Dec. 15.] Well, the box arrived December 14th with all
the items. This made for a great Christmas party with all my gaming buddies as I had the right gift for each
guy, thanks to you. Your good service made it a merry Christmas for a bunch of gamers.
Carl W., Glendale, CA December 1999
Just wanted you to know I got my order less than 24hrs after I ordered it.
Kevin D., Bellevue, WA November 1999
I phoned an order in one day and got it two days later! Your service
Ron.S., Portage, MI July 2000
Considering I ordered on the Thursday, that means a delivery time of 4 working
days from USA to Wales. Fantastic!
Stephen P., Wales, Great Britain August 2000
Wow....Red Barricades came in 2 days in excellent condition. Thank you so much
the quick response. I will definitely return for more when I can....
Jim H., California August 2000
Before I could even look at the calendar to decide when I might expect my
games....they arrived! Thank you very much!
Barry E., Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada February 1998
My order arrived today, setting a new record for overseas delivery. I just
wanted to thank you for such prompt, efficient service.
Murray T., Dunedin, New Zealand July 1997
Items rec'd lightning fast and in fine shape! As always, thanks again.
Ed D., Houston, TX September
I don't know how you can ship goods to me a week faster than anyone else, but I
Doug A., Melbourne, Australia July 1997
Wow that was a fast response!
Shannon H., October 2000
My order arrived today. Thanks. I really appreciate your promptness.
Lee W., Raliegh, NC October 2000
Your site stays firmly logged in my 'Favourites'.
Allen G., England January 2001
Brazil is still a backwater in international mail business, but you have always
been extremely helpful and careful --- *and* the games arrive promptly. Keep up the good work.
Luiz Claudio D., Brazil March 2001
Thanks for the quick service. I received a response to my e mail during your
shutdown period, stating that the order would be processed on [Jan. 2nd]. That's today, & that's what
happened, so you did exactly as promised. As rare as it's become for businesses to do that, it's greatly
appreciated when it happens.
Robert K., Carlsbad CA January 2001
Just wanted to let you know that I received the game yesterday, and to say thank
you. I'm really looking forward to doing business with you again!
[Asked if I could quote him:] By all means! I mean, I've already said the same thing to every gamer I
know to check out your site, and how fast the service is. :)
Matt S., Gainesville, FL Sept. 2000
I wanted to take a moment to compliment your business. Your online catalog
updates are very regular and accurately depict the actual condition of each item listed. Ordering from you is
painless, and orders almost always go out on the same day that they are made. When orders arrive, they are
accurate, well packed, and always reflective of condition listed in your catalog. In short, it is truly a
pleasure doing business with you. Your efforts to run a business to "satisfy the customers without the
BS" are quite recognized.
Clinton P., Spokane, WA April 1999
Thanks again for a much appreciated combination of prompt, efficient and
friendly service an increasingly rare combination that I am sure all your customers appreciate!
Derek H., South Africa November 1999
I must add that this is my third order with you and I have been very pleased
with you and your product each time. Thank you for your prompt and efficient response.
William S., Westminster, CA September
Games received in A+ condition. Thanks. Exemplary in every way!
Gregg C., Castle Rock CO June 2001
Just to let you know that my game arrived safe and sound yesterday, in excellent
condition, just as you described it. Many thanks.
Thomas B., Oxford, Great Britain June 2000
I'd just like to say thanks...the GEV game was in GREAT shape (at last, a rating
system I can trust!). I look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
Ken R., Saratoga Springs, NY July 1997
While I have done mail order business with other companies and people before, I
must say that your publication is the most organized, dependable and informative of any I have encountered. I
look forward to your next [catalog].
Stephen F., Sante Fe, NM February 1997
For me, it's ok if I buy a game that has less than perfect condition I know what
I am buying in advance. I found the Case White condition *exactly* as
described and as I would have expected. Thank you very much for the great
care that you put into your listings and your business.I hope you do well and I am sure we will deal again.
Art L., Santa Clara, CA October 2000
Well done, the packaging was superb, and the games.... words fail me! You are
very conservative in your descriptions! I am *very* pleased.
Richard, Italy March 2001
The items were just as described in your catalogue...ie. perfect condition. (I
was a little leery at first, as i have been ripped off before....) Such was not the case here, as 'Fine Games'
is an apt and well-deserved title...I believe I have found my source!
David A., Jupiter FL August 2001
I have to say I really hate looking at
your catalog. There's too much good stuff in there! Conrad
V., CA May 2002
I'm very pleased with the games [you sent]. Thanks a lot.
Jim S., Lizella, GA December 1992
Careful Shipping Practices
I'm happy to say that two packages from you arrived safely. And I found the very
excellent condition games in it. I am quite satisfied. Your continued cooperation and assistance will be highly
appreciated. Thank you very much.
Shigihito T., Japan November 2000
Beyond Valor game arrived in beautiful condition! The shipping box had the usual
assortment of corner smashing but, the contents were perfect. Thanks for taking the extra time with the packing
peanuts-they were a game saver.
Mike O., Louisville, KY July 2000
I've received my Combat! Rangers
yesterday. It was in tip-top condition! Not a single dog-ear, creases
or bent. In fact, it looks like I just bought it from a neighbourhood
hobby shop even though it has flown half way around the globe to reach
Singapore. The packaging was secure and the packing was very well-done.
I can tell that you have really gone the extra mile to ensure that my
game arrives in top condition. You have certainly lived up to your
reputation! TJM, Singapore, March 2002
I'm thrilled with everything I got, and
to be quite honest, I've never received a shipment as well-packed as
the one I received from you guys- I swear, I think I could've jumped up
and down on the box, and not hurt anything inside. Kudos, and many
thanks, amigo- it was easily the most painless buying experience I've
ever had online, and I'm definitely interested in shopping with you
again. F.Scott B., OH Nov. 2001
Thanks for the quick [resolution]. This type of customer service makes all the
bad things go away -).
Mark C., Palm Bay, FL July 2000
I want to thank you again for your prompt response to the problem with my order.
Also, thanks for the follow-up on the shipment.
Tom M., Tustin, CA October 2000
Thank you for your answer. I really appreciate the way you are dealing with the
problem on my [misprinted counter] issue. It has not always been the case with all the sellers I
purchased games from, and this is why I seemed so "nervous" to you .
Dominique T., France June 2001
Our Integrity & Ethical Business Practices
I received the items safely.... All
items are correct and adequate. In Japan, I've always heard the good
reputation of FINE GAMES, and it's very glad I myself can confirm this
reputation. Thank you again. Tomohiko S.,
Japan March 2003
Many thanks for my recent orders. I
purchased a slew of GMT games and some copies of C3i Magazine and have
been very pleased with the speed of the delivery as well as the
condition of the items received. Michael R,
CA Jan. 2003
I have had good and bad experiences buying on eBay but I have had nothing but
Excellent experiences dealing with you. I definitely will be doing more business with you in the future.
Dan B., Scottsdale, AZ December 1999
When you get around to adding the "testimonials" section to your web
[site], I would like to make a contribution. You are a good person to do business with.
John D., Littleton, MA November 1996
I often hold you up as an example of a great local businessman with solid
values, great attitude, and hopefully a very happy clientele.
KC H., Gresham, OR May 2001
Thanks for the great service! You're one of the reasons the hobby is still going
Jeff W. Boise, ID
I received my order on Friday. Thank you for sending it out so quickly.
Everything arrived in great shape and in the condition that you stated, it is very nice doing business with a
reputable person. I will most certainly place another order in a short while.
Geoff H., Laguana Hills, CA April 1997
First of all let me say "Thank you" for running a professional, honest
and customer consious business in a market which lends itself all too often to scams and ripoffs. As a grognard
from way back (started in 1973), I have had the misfortune of running across the latter a few times.
Randall S., Kennesaw GA, January 2001
Your Satisfaction Assured

Dirk O., The Netherlands July 1996
Had to put the hobby aside for awhile. When I came back, all my favorite stores
are gone (or changed). At least us old timers can depend on you for "keeping the faith.".
David W., Richmond, VA January 2000
I've been hunting down sources of out-of-print games on the internet over the
last couple months, and have placed order with half a dozen of them. You are one of the most responsive and
easy to deal with. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.
Jim U., New Berlin, WI March 2000
Try Michael Dean at Fine Games. He has a good website, an awesome selection
(sensibly organized), and I have dealt with him many times and he is totally reliable. He will respond quickly
to an e-mail inquiry.
Mike S., Toronto, Ontario, CANADA February 2000
I can't believe the speed and quality of your service. The items are flawless!
This will certainly be the first of many orders from me. Thanks again!
Ed D., Houston, TX January 2000
I have just received all of the games you sent and couldn't be more pleased. All
of them look like I just got them from the companies that produced them as they were released. Rest assured
that your web page is bookmarked, I'll be telling my friends and I'll be ordering again from "Fine
Richard K., Austin, TX June 2000
Once again I'm amazed by the quality of your
service as well as the value of your prices. Nice doing business with
Randy P., Moscow, ID November 1999
I received the products that I ordered... today. I am very happy and satisfied.
Morimitsu T., Japan May 2001
I've received today the ship and it's all fine! Really, the name must be Fine Games! Thanks a lot of!
Manuel P., Spain June 2001
I'm just dropping you a line to say thank you very much for the incredibly
efficient and swift service. You score 110%. I received my [game] yesterday which means it took approximately a
week and a bit to travel from America to South Africa. [Y]ou played a major role in getting the game off to me
as quickly as possible. You promise satisfaction on your website and whoo boy do you deliver. I can see now why
[my friend] is singing your praises. As soon as I can scrape some more money together I am going to order
something else from you and nobody else. Keep up the incredible work.
[signed] (a very satified customer)
