Game Publishers Supporting Local Business with Direct Sales

During these strange and trying times, many great game publishers have begun offering discounted direct sales on their websites that will share a portion of the proceeds directly with local game stores who have been hurt by the uncertainty of Covid-19!

Check out the included publisher’s notes and read a little bit about how your purchases can help Millennium Games until we are able to open our doors once again. For many, it’s as simple as writing “Millennium Games, Rochester NY” in the notes for your order!

Click on the links below to shop for some great games to help you pass the time indoors in a fun and social way!

If a customer lists a game store (and the game store’s email address), we will PayPal 25% of the MSRP of the products they ordered from us to the game store they specify. PDF products are included! We’ve also offered a discount for shipping games without boxes (BOXLESS2020). I’m currently running short on game boxes, my supplier has been shut down, and I’d rather save them for when game stores can order again. SHOP NOW
