As you browse through and find games you'd like
to purchase, simply click on the green W-shaped Kadon logo
following the price. Your selections will be entered automatically into your order (electronic shopping cart). Your purchases are not final until you authorize them at the end of the ordering process.

Payment methods We accept all these forms of payment:
Shipping costs The checkout process will prompt you to select the shipping destination from the following chart. The appropriate shipping cost will be automatically added to your order:
- American Express
- PayPal make payable to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Check or money order, in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank.
- Cash in person only, please.
- Inquire about direct electronic transfer on foreign orders.
Occasionally a package may cost much more to ship than these formulas provide and may exceed our ability to subsidize the difference. In such an event we will email you for your acceptance or rejection of paying the additional amount.
- Within the U.S., the greater of $6 or 15% of order total.
- For Canada, the greater of $10 or 20% of order total.
- All other countries, the greater of $25 or 25% of order total.
Customs or duty fees on foreign orders may be charged to you by your home country when the package arrives. We do not charge or collect these fees and have no information about individual countries' policies. Please let us know if there are limits on purchases in your country, so that we can package your orders accordingly. We've heard of a couple of unpleasant surprises our customers received along with their packages and would like to spare you as much as possible.
Oversize packages On certain very large and heavy products, we will add a shipping surcharge to the automated shipping formula, so the total to be charged will be higher than shown on your order. Affected products are so marked. They are:

Undersize packages The following products are small or very light and will be mailed first class when ordered singly.

These discounts do not apply when the items are part of a larger order where the shipping is calculated as a percentage, not a minimum. The percentage saves you more.
Shipping methods Within the U.S. our preferred shipping method is Priority Mail (U.S. Postal Service), unless you request another carrier. Outside the U.S., we ship by Priority airmail, unless you specify a special arrangement.
We'll be happy to ship your gift orders anywhere in the world. The order form can show only one destination. Where multiple shipments go to addresses in different shipping areas, we will calculate the shipping costs separately for each after your credit card order is received. When paying by check or money order, please include the appropriate amount for each destination.
Sales tax For Maryland residents or recipients only, 6% sales tax is automatically added. The checkout process will prompt you to click the appropriate box. We will correct manually any errors before you are charged.
Secure server We use a secure server, Virtual Cart, and have our system regularly tested for security to protect your personal and credit card information when you order online. If a message announces the secure transmission, simply click on "continue". Also look for the unbroken-key or closed-lock icons at the top of the screen to confirm the secure status.
Secure online ordering Our secure online checkout program guides you to fill in your name, address, credit card number and expiration date, and other relevant data. If shipments are to be sent to addresses other than your own, please enter that information in the "special instructions and comments" section of the order.
