  • GeekUp bits, bags, and boxes
  • A selection of games and expansion
  • Gaming supplies
  • T-shirts, hoodies, and hats
  • Mugs, water bottles
  • Artist Series prints

And a reminder that the BGG Store gift certificates are now accepted at our convention store! So if that gift card has been burning a hole in your inbox, bring the code to BGG.CON and spend it in person!

Shipping Expectations for the Holidays

The BGG Store will close for its regular holiday break between December 16th and Jan 3rd, so all orders must be placed before December 15th to be shipped before we close.

A reminder - if you live outside the US, typical shipping times are 6-8 weeks right now, and we haven’t even hit the real holiday rush. If you order an item hoping for a holiday delivery, we cannot guarantee delivery in time for Dec 25th. Processing times for international mail have improved since 2021, but they are still unpredictable. So here’s a rough timetable for holiday deadlines:

  • If you live outside North America - we cannot guarantee delivery by Dec 25th
  • If you live in Canada or Mexico - order by the end of October
  • If you live in the US - order by the end of November for both the BGG Store and Geek Game Shop

Artist Series Prints Now Available for Pre-Order for International Customers

The Artist Series prints will begin to arrive in the next TWO weeks, so we are opening up pre-orders to non-US customers. Prints will ship to ALL customers at the very end of October or early November. A limited set of 10 prints will also be available for sale in person at BGG.CON.

Please NOTE - An order with an Artist Series print will be HELD until the prints arrive in two weeks, so plan accordingly!
