Books & Games Available via Amazon
Minden products are increasingly being made available for purchase through Amazon.com (and Amazon.co.uk in Britain), professionally printed in book format. Simply log in to Amazon, and search for our titles in the usual fashion. You can order these Minden items directly from Amazon in your home country, the same way you would with any other Amazon purchase.
The advantage (especially for customers in Europe) is that you can pay for items in pounds or euros directly online via Amazon, and have them shipped to you from Britain, thus saving significantly on postage.
Items you buy will be identical to items bought directly from Minden, except these books contain all game components (rules, counters, maps, reference material) within the pages of the book, as part of the printed book. They are complete games, but you will need to scan the components and print them in order to play the game. To repeat, there are no separate game components included when ordered via Amazon or selected resellers. See Frequently Asked Questions, below. You may, however, order game components separately for some "Amazon" games (see below). Although all game components are included within the pages of the books you order via Amazon, separate cardstock components are available directly from Minden for those who wish them.
If you buy one of these books directly from Minden, separate game components may be included. To do this, you must visit and order via the Ordering Page.
By selling on Amazon, we are able to reach many, many potential customers, who might never have heard of Minden otherwise. Overseas customers have the option of ordering from Amazon to save money. Loyal customers (domestic & overseas) may continue to order these directly from Minden, as they have done in the past. So it's a win-win-win situation. That's why we are offering this option on new products.
