GOB Retail November Newsletter and Upcoming events


Welcome the newest installment of the GOB Retail Newsletter. We've got a handful of quick things to chat about, so we'll dive right in and make it quick.

Thanksgiving Hours

GOB will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. We'll be open regular hours all other days Thanksgiving week. To everyone who celebrates it, we wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving.

Board Game Consignment

GOB recently launched our new Board Game Consignment program and section in the store. This is where our customers who have pre-owned board games they no longer need can sell them here at GOB and get store credit when their items sell. So far this has gone very well, with our customers loving what has become available and most of those seling their games getting them sold quickly. So quickly, we could use more. Lots more. So if you have board games you would like to sell, please visit our Board Game Consignment page:

GOB Gift Registry

Want to make it easy for your friends and family to shop for you this holiday season? GOB has a Gift Registry you can use to help them. Build a list of exactly what you would like and let your friends and families know you have a registry with us and we'll take care of the rest! GOB also has Gift Cards available.

We've added a couple hundred more games to our board game red tag clearance section. All red tagged games are 35% off an already discounted price, for a total discount ranging from 40-60% off. Come check out the additions before the black friday rush.

40% Graphic Novel Clearance Section Updated

We've added several hundred more graphic novels to our 40% off section. Got to make room for the flood of new books coming in 2020. Come check out the additions before the black friday rush.

Black Friday and Small Business Saturday

Yes, GOB has plans to celebrating both of these major retail events. Stay tuned for announcements for our plans for each of these events. We'll be sending out separate announcements for each.

Board Game Kiosk Version 2.0 Launching This Week

We are just a few days aware of a major update to the GOB Board Game Kiosk. Version 2.0 really adds a lot of search function and additional information which our customers will have access to. Search for games by one of 21 game categories, by best sellers, by award winners, by title, by age range, by number of players, by play duration or by any of nearly 200 different game mechanics or game theme tags. The new kiosk will also give you let you access game reviews, stock status and with future additions planned to include game plays and customer ratings. And shortly after the new Kiosk rolls out in the store, we plan to update our board game pages with similar functionality!

Board Game Tagging & Reviews

Did you know that all GOB Rewards Customers can contribute to the Board Game tagging systems and/or add reviews to our database? If you login to and navigate to any product page, you can chose to submit additional tags to any game. The GOB staff has been diligently tagging all our entire board gate database with roughly 2000 games tagged so far, but we've got more to do, and certain everyone who has played each game may be able to contribute additional information to enhance the information avalable to the community. If you've bought a game through GOB, you are also eligible to review that game. This insures only those who we know own the game can add reviews for it. The current review system only asks for comprehensive reviews, but if you leave it, it will provide you some bonus rewards points for the effort.

Family Board Game Demo Night

Family Board Game Night every Friday at GOB continues to pick up steam. Last week we had 25 players attending. Let's keep growing the board game community. Every Friday starting aroun 6:30 board gamers are invited to gather and play. Bring some of your favorites and explore some new games brought by others, or try out any of the games available in the GOB Board Game Library. Every week GOB staff or a guest game publisher representative will demo a new game for you. For Friday, November 22, we'll be demoing two games. Corinth Dice Game and Lucidity: Six-Sided Nightmares Dice Game. Demos will begin approx 7pm. Come join us.

Magic: Special Bundle Builders Event - Sat, Dec 7th

Comic Subscriptions

A reminder for our comic customers. GOB offers free access to our rewards card members to the GOB Comic Subscription System. This is an online system that lets you view all the comics on solicitation each month and lets you subscribe to ongoing series or special order comics or trades as one offs. You can 24/7 online access to this amazing tool, plus access to report of what you have on subscription, what has arrived and is ready to pick up, estimates of when the items you have ordered will arrive and your complete comic order history by series. This tool is FREE to all GOB Rewads customers, with just a couple requirements. You must sign an agreement to pick up the things that you order, you must actually pick up the things you order, and the system will start by capping the maximum you can have on subscription and gradually raise those caps as you develop a history of successfully picking of those items that you ordered. You are guaranteed to get the books you order and get to stop chasing down issues from month to month and GOB will give you Double Comic Rewards on the books you order on subscription.
