How to place an order with Game Dude

Game Dude accepts all major credit cards and Postal money orders.
You may place your order by phone, mail, e-mail or fax. We recommend placing your order by phone with a credit card for fastest service.

Paying by money order?


Placing Your Order By Phone

Call our store at (818) 764-9506 (11am to 7pm PST) to place your order. Game Dude has a minimum of $15.00 before adding shipping and sales tax (where applicable) on credit card orders.

For your protection against fraud, credit card orders will only be shipped to the billing address of the card holder (this is the address where you receive your credit card statement). If you would like to order something and have it shipped to another address you will have to place your order by mail and make payment by state issued check or money order only.

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept credit cards for most international orders. Please call us or e-mail us for details on placing an order from outside of the USA. We will accept credit card orders to Canada only if the billing address is a street address (no PO boxes).

Placing Your Order By Mail

We recommend that you call us at (818) 764-9506 (11am to 7pm PST) or e-mail us before sending in your order to verify the prices of the games you want. Please note that our prices can sometimes change daily. After you are quoted prices for your order, please ask our salesperson to give you an authorization number. The "auth number" guarantees the quoted prices for ten days. Please be aware that this authorization number only guarantees the price of the games you are ordering, it does not guarantee the availability of the games. Any order received without an authorization number will be processed at the current price for the day that we receive your order!

On a regular piece of paper, write down the following information:

Your name and address
The system you are ordering games for
Whether you are ordering the games new or used
If the games must be in the original boxes or not
If you require the instructions and/or maps
The price you were quoted for the games
Your authorization number


Our inventory of games changes every day. For best results, list alternate game selections in case we are sold out of your first choice. When calculating the total cost of your order, do not forget to add 9% sales tax (if in California) and shipping charges. Please read the section on Shipping Information for help in calculating the correct shipping charges.

If we do not have all the games you requested in stock, we will hold your order for up to two weeks in an attempt to fill your order. If after two weeks your order is still not complete, we will ship your partial order and credit your account for the remaining funds, unless you specify that you would like a refund instead. All orders paid by check or money order requesting a refund will not be issued until 15 business days after we have deposited your state issued check or money order.
