SOME MORE GREAT NEW GAMES

To say that there are a lot of games on the market is to understate. TOYSRUS stores usually have an entire wall of games, an examination of your local game store will often allow you to find titles that were not to be seen on the TOYSRUS shelves, and a look at Mail-Order catalogs may allow you to discover even more...

Thus it may seem hard for you to believe that some of the best games that exist may not be available at TOYSRUS, the major game store chains, your local game and toy store, or your favorite Mail-Order catalogs. New games, games created by small companies with limited advertising and marketing budgets, and games that have become local favourites, but have had only limited national or regional exposure, are unlikey to be available, in areas out side of the area of local exposure, except through the internet...

Unfortunately, this doesn't make you much more likely to find out about these games. There are thousands of games available on-line. Many of them are the products of established game and toy companies - companies with big budgets that can afford to spend the money and time necessary to ensure that their games are listed in the first three pages of the major search engines so that you will find out about their games, and not some other game, when you do a search engine search. The search engines base their web site rankings on a number of considerations and the quality of the particular game or product isn't one of them. :-(

It sounds so difficult. How can I find these great undiscovered and obscure games?

When you decide what game you want to buy when you enter the local TOYSRUS, or the local game and toy store, your decision is often based on the recommendation of friends, what you have read about in the media, advertising you have seen on the radio or tv, and on whether or not the game is familiar to you.

We want to help you find some of these games and offer them for sale here.

We would prefer that we didn't have to ask you to trust us on our opinion of them, as trustworthy as we may be... because unless you have bought a game from us before, you really have no idea of knowing whether we are trustworthy or not. For some of the games, we must do exactly that... they are so obscure. We love Pentagonia and we have played these games and love to play them too.

Conversely, some of the games we love to play have been recommended by or received awards from, non-profit and for-profit organizations and institutions involved in the testing of the games. For the games that have been so recommended or awarded:
* the award or recommendation, and
* the organization giving the recomendation,
will be published below the game.
