White Wolf is doing a limited reprint of TOJ: Gehanna and we are doing pre-orders *today*. If you want one tell me *now* and I'll get you one. After this there are no more reprints of Gehenna. There might be an e-book, we don't know, but if you want a hardbacked copy of Gehenna this is your last chance.
Do you understand? This is your very last chance.
Seriously, if you want one let us know asap.

Sadly, due to lack of enthusiasm on our part for an 11 hour day on a wednesday we are closing the gaming evening. What went before was fun. In the end, however it was taking too much out of us for it to be worth while.
Apologies to anyone who was looking forward to us starting this again in the new year, but it's really not possible.

12:16PM - Gaming Evening
Alex will be closing the store at 6pm today so there won't be a gaming
evening as such this week.
The gaming evening at G&P is changing format. The shop will now be
staying open till 7pm for trade, during which time we will keep the
tables open for people to play on. It's a less formal idea in general.
If things pick up again after Christmas we will probably reinstate the
"Gaming Evening" proper.

5:38PM - New website has gone live
Get it here: http://www.games-puzzles.co.uk
More details in the new section.
Friday, November 21, 2003
Apologies to those of you who get this twice:
In the next few days we'll be changing the website over to an entirely new format. If you have the time I'd like to invite you all to take a look at what it's going to be like.
To elaborate further on what we are proposing to do here are a few points:
- We want to provide a more attractive and efficient web presence for the shop. We're not heading into the murky waters of true eCommerce, yet, but the way the site and the shop are going means that a decent stock tracking system will be in evidence soon
- We will be instituting forums and community boards. The intention is to provide a, free, central resource for gamers in Cambridge to use. Any local society (the exact meaning of "local" is yet to be defined assume within the city of Cambridge for now) can ask for, and most likely will be given a forum, message board and events board. Other funky things will become available when we get round to thinking of them.
- In addition to the above we intend to post a shop board; essentially an electronic version of the notice board in the shop.
- There will also be a reviews site where visitors will be invited to post their own thoughts on our products.
- Also a rating system.
- anything else we think of as we fiddle around with the thing
The (work in progress) new design can be found here:
Comments and suggestions are welcome, as always.

1:10PM - Time For an Update
Due to the chaos brought about by the retail Christmas season (which, as we all know is about three months longer than is strictly necessary) we have been a bit useless of late keeping you all up to date.
Stuff that's new:
- Firstly I'd like to encourage people to use the notice board in the shop. It's been there for a while, and I'm sure if we moved it people would moan, but people don't seem to use it at all. We are also working on constructing an electronic message board for the same purposes. More on that when I have the details.
- LARP Weaponry: Which is detailed on our website Currently we only have a few of the items in stock, but we are expecting more mid-December if not before.
- Murder Mystery Dinner Parties are back in.
- As are Icehouse pieces in colours other than white, clear and black.
- There is a selection of new card games to be perused, including: Summer Camp, Spooky and The B-Movie Card Game series
- The Lord of the rings Risk expansion is out
- As are LOTR Labyrinth, Trivia Game, Trivial Pursuit (not the same thing) and Jigsaws.
- We also have a few new board games, such as: Age Of Napoleon, American Civil War, Magna Grecia, The Bridges of Shagri-La, Original diplomacy, Warcraft, Zertz, Gipf, Yinish and Dvonn.
- I am attempting to keep the website up-to-date, but the influx of new stock is making it difficult . We are hoping soon to institute a whole new point of sales system, which will provide us with stock tracking for both the store and the website. This of course is one of those things that might take a few days or we might not get it working till next year. So I'll keep you all posted
- Finally, we’ve cleaned out the basement and put up several "bargain bins" various bits of old/discontinued stock going very cheaply indeed.
As ever, if there’s something you think could improve the store or what we sell, drop us a line and we'll see what we can do.
Hope to see you soon,

2:38PM - DOBBERS!
We have some in!
These excellent weapons are made by ex-caliber. Currently we have a rapier, a katana, an arming sword, a longsword, a pick hammer and a mace.
We're expecting a second order in mid-december which will have the rest of ex-caliber's range. If theres anything you'd like to order, drop us a line and we'll be happy to add it to that order.

Is sort-of-on. We expect to be quite busy before the fireworks display (which we want to see too!) and so may not be able to participate ourselves, but with luck people will be able to use the tables until 7:00-:7:15pm when we will close up to go see the display.
As ever we have a selection of games for you to play.
