The Shop on the Borderlands – Classic & New Roleplaying Games, Board Games, War Games & more!




The British government introduced significant restrictions on movement on the 23rd March and is now just starting to loosen them. However, online retailers have been expected and encouraged to stay open throughout, and therefore WE ARE OPERATING (almost) NORMALLY. We have a number of methods of dispatching your orders that eliminate or significantly minimise human contact, for example courier collection with the parcels left for collection the other side of a glass door, or Royal Mail’s Click & Drop service, and we are continuing to use those methods.

We have not put any staff on furlough. We have not claimed any government grant or even loan during this period. In fact, we have not taken a penny of taxpayer money. I am very proud of that. We have continued to trade, providing a service. We have contributed to, rather than taken from, the economy. Again, I am very proud of that.

During the current crisis, postal firms and courier firms will likely take longer to deliver your parcel. Please be patient and spare a thought for Post Office and courier firm workers. Most of the parcels we ship are too big to put through a letterbox. So that postmen and couriers do not have to greet you face-to-face, you can enter a suggested safe parcel drop-off spot (e.g. “in the porch”, “in the garage”) in the comments box on our checkout page.

In order to further reduce the number of journeys we make outside, we are shifting to only posting orders every other day rather than every day. So half of your orders will take an extra day to arrive.

Above all, stay safe.
