Myriad Games is Moving and Introducing Tabletop Direct!
Myriad Games is moving from 1525 South Willow Street, Manchester, NH to our new warehouse-direct location at 34 Londonderry Road, Londonderry, NH (conveniently located just minutes off Exit 4 of I-93).
At the same time we will be launching a new service, Tabletop Direct. As a Tabletop Direct member, you can get all your games at warehouse-direct prices (lower than online stores!).
We will be operating at our current Manchester location until just after Christmas this year. We will continue to get new releases and restocks of core titles from now through the week before Christmas. We will be open for a few days after Christmas (December 26th, 27th, and 28th) for our final clearance sales at the 1525 South Willow St. location. We will then be closed between December 29th and January 8th for our move to 34 Londonderry Rd. We will be reopening at our new warehouse-direct location on January 9th, 2017.
To bring our members the best warehouse-direct prices on tabletop games, our new location will not focus on stocking games like a traditional retail outlet. Instead we’ll be focusing on our new service, Tabletop Direct. This allows you to purchase games at warehouse-direct prices (the lowest in the industry - lower than online stores!). This will be a members-only program, with annual membership for just $49 per year (you can take advantage of a free trial for one month at no cost).
We will have pre-played titles in stock and open copies of select games to show off along with in-warehouse-only clearance deals for members. When you want to order new games and accessories, you simply request the item(s) you'd like, we check availability, collect payment, and order from our nationwide network of distributor warehouses.
Who will be working at the new location? All our existing staff will have the opportunity to continue working at our new headquarters location in Londonderry.
While we’ve enjoyed our years at 1525 South Willow St., the costs associated with maintaining the location have grown out of proportion with local sales.
We’ve been in the tabletop games industry since 1996 and operating Myriad Games since 1999. Over the past 20 years, we’ve done everything from direct-to-consumer online sales to local sales and events to convention sales to wholesale. We’ve seen the significant increase in direct-to-consumer sales and shipments, the long-term impact on pricing requirements from the Great Recession, and the evolution of direct-to-consumer sales from publishers via platforms like Amazon and Kickstarter. Working through our publishing and distribution divisions over the past 5 years, we are very familiar with those aspects and how the market is changing. As the market develops we must evolve with it, and our solution is to get you the best prices anywhere.
You can request your order in person, by email, by text, by phone, by Skype, by Facebook message, or by Twitter direct message.
We'll let you know your current Tabletop Direct member price for each title and if it's presently available. Once you approve the purchase, we’ll charge your card on file. All orders must be pre-paid to get our special member pricing. Items that are in-print from the manufacturer and available for us to order through our network of warehouses are typically available for pickup in about a week from when you place your order. For future releases, when you preorder and prepay, you reserve your copy. New releases that you’ve preordered are available immediately when they arrive at our facility for you to pick up. For all your orders, once your games arrive, we keep them safe and sound for you until you're ready to pick them up. We’ll be announcing our new hours for our 34 Londonderry Rd location on MyriadGames.com and through our email newsletter, so stay tuned.
You can sign up for your first month free to try it out as of December 12th. Any new members who enroll in 2016 will get some bonus extra time on your first year’s membership and will have their renewal date set to January 3rd, 2018. After that, you can sign up or renew anytime and your membership renewal date will be on your membership anniversary.
Tabletop Direct prices are not available to non-members but remember that you can sign up for a free trial anytime to try out the service and see the savings you can receive with your membership.
From now through December 24th, you'll be able to pick up your games at our existing retail location at 1525 South Willow Street in Manchester.
As of January 9th, you will be able to pick up your games at our member pickup location at 34 Londonderry Road, Londonderry, NH, conveniently located just off Exit 4 from I-93.
