Who are Monkeys With Fire?
Monkeys With Fire is a friendly UK based specialist web store of tabletop gaming. We offer a wide range of products, stocking all the latest board games, card games, dice games, collectible card games, miniature games, and role-playing games.
When do new releases become available?
New release products are posted on the store each Friday in advance of their release the following week. Stock typically arrives on a Tuesday / Wednesday from our supplier. As soon as we are in receipt of the product, orders placed for new releases are dispatched.
How do pre-orders work?
Pre-orders allow you to place an order for an item that we do not yet have in stock. We’ll reserve your order and when we have the item(s) in stock, we’ll dispatch them to you.
When making a pre-order, you will pay for the item(s) in advance, in full. You can cancel a pre-order at any time prior to the order’s dispatch and will receive a full refund.
Timescales for items that are available to pre-order can vary from weeks to months, depending on the item. We maintain regular communication with our suppliers and we’ll update you as and when further information on the items status is made available.
What happens if my pre-order is delayed or does not come in stock?
Sometimes, suppliers’ scheduling and shipping dates can change and some pre-orders can be delayed or cancelled. If the delivery date for an item changes, we will update you. If we cannot fulfil your pre-order, we will send you an email to confirm the reason why.
There are occasions when a supplier does not fulfil our requirements fully, and we do not have enough stock to fulfil all of the pre-orders. Should this occur, we will fulfil as many orders as we can – beginning with the earliest orders made. If your order cannot be fulfilled, we will email you to let you know.
Please be aware that making a pre-order does not guarantee that we will get that item into stock. We also cannot be held responsible for suppliers’ date changes and cancellations.
How can I pay?
We accept payment via the PayPal checkout system. We accept the following credit/debit cards online: Visa, Mastercard, Delta, Solo, Switch and Electron. Payment via American Express is not possible.
Do I need a PayPal account to make a payment?
You do not require a PayPal account to use the PayPal checkout system. Credit and debit card payments can be made by selecting the card payment option at the bottom of the PayPal checkout window. If you are unsure, please contact a member of our service team who will be happy to assist you.
