October 17, 2020  Hello!  First, I want to mention how
pleased I am with your store.  When I need a game, I know
I can trust to get a quality, complete game.  There's no one
like you on the Internet!  Great store!  Thank you so much
and I look forward to buying vintage games from your in
the future!

I got the Bulls Eye Ball toy (game) I
ordered. It was hard to find the exact one I had when I
was younger. We are having so much fun playing it.  I love

August 4, 2020  
Thank you for the games. Finally arrived
last night. Already played the bowling and golf games.
The Clue: Harry Potter game is for my granddaughter's
birthday. I know she will love it.  If you come across the
Arnold Palmer Card game, please let me know.  Thanks

June 14, 2020
Yesterday we decided to play the Dinosaurs
Not The Mama card game and were frustrated to find the
rules were missing.  We were delighted to find you had
them available. Thank you so much for providing this
wonderful service.

I just received the Candyland game today
and am thrilled! The game is in excellent condition and your
prices are very reasonable.  Now my grandson is happily
playing this game as did his parents and grandparents.  We
will all enjoy playing this nostalgic game together.

May 13, 2020  
I haven’t been able to play the editions of
Mille Bornes and Video Village that I found with you. I
hope to put these classics to work, or back to work soon.
I can’t adequately express how valuable you are to the boys
and me.  Please stay safe. We’ll stay in touch.  

May 8, 2020
Thank you so very much, Don !!!!  The kids
are playing these games again and having fun.  

May 7, 2020  
Just wanted to let you know the games
arrived. They all looked really good.  I don't know how
often you replenish your stock, or if you acquire games
from estates, flea markets, etc., but I will check in
periodically to see if you have anything new that moves
me! Take care now.  

April 29, 2020  
Just wanted to let you know how pleased
I am with the 5ive Straight game I ordered from you. The
condition of the game was just as described, shipping was
fast and the price was very fair. It was the first time I have
ordered from you but will not be the last. Thank you.

April, 21, 2020  
I just wanted to let you know that the
Flash Match Junior cards you sent arrived safely a few
hours ago! Thank you so much, they are in perfect
condition. I have already played the game with my kids and
they love it as much as I did when I was a child.  So
grateful for your help and being willing to send them all the
way out to me in Australia.  All the best for the remainder
of this crazy Covid-19 time we’re living in. Keep healthy
and stay well.  Warm regards,

April 15, 2020  
Thanks so much for the quick response
and the information.  Looking forward to playing these
games with our kids!  

April 11, 2020   
Got it! So thankful I could find these

April 10, 2020  
Thanks Don.  I was talking to my sister
and reminiscing about Hide n Thief game.  I will look for
the paypal request now and complete that.  It was a
pleasure speaking with you!

March 26, 2020  
Thank you for sending the rules for this
game. I am hopeful that my grandkids will enjoy it as much
as my children did after we bought it at a yard sale in the
1980's. And maybe it can substitute for school while they
are out due to the coronavirus. I hope you and your family
are healthy there in Missouri.  

March 12, 2020  
Thank you, 1998 Pokemon Master
Trainer game arrived! I'm excited to play this with my
group tomorrow and thank you for the business card!

 I appreciate your time, I will tell others
about your website and customer service.  

February 4, 2020  
Love your website and have ordered
several games from you, plus I tell others about your

February 2, 2020  
I took a bit of time and read over the
"about us" part of your site. Excellent. What you have done
and are doing is totally awesome.  What you do with the
plastic bags and rubber bands is exactly the same thing I do
with any game we get! I really enjoyed speaking with you
on the phone.  

January 29, 2020  
I received my 1962 Mille Bornes game.  
It's just a gorgeous piece.  I will be doing more business in
the future.  

January 23, 2020  
I received my Acquire game today,
thank you! It is in great shape! I am going to go to my
Facebook page and recommend you to everyone!

 I got my 600 tiles for my Chain
Lightning Set and they look perfect.  I will be ordering


December 23, 2019  They have great customer service
and helped me provide the best gift of Christmas. The site
is different and the links send you to PayPal instead of a
cart and I missed where I could change the ship to. I
emailed them and they quickly canceled that order and let
me put in a new one and it shipped that evening. The game
was in excellent condition just as advertised and at a good

November 26, 2019  
I am 150% satisfied with my 5 game
order.  One game came with more parts than I expected
which made me very happy.  You have a 10 out of
10 and I will buy from you again.  I will be telling my
group about your store and hopefully they will buy from
you as well.  I'd much rather buy from a local business
then Amazon or eBay.  

November 16, 2019  
I was glad to receive Lost Treasure
game & find it in good working order.  Regards,

September 21.2019  
Game of Life showed up today and
it is in fabulous shape Don.  Thanks so much and my
daughter loves it already.  

July 8, 2019  
I just got the games and I could not be more
happy with them!! I appreciate you very much!  If you
happen to have anymore that come your way please let me
know. My entire family now wants one, lol! Thank you!!!

May 14, 2019  
The Abolone game arrived perfectly
packaged and in pristine condition. WOW!!!  Talk about
incredible service!!!  Great job!!  I have dealt with
countless businesses over the years.  Unarguably, yours is
the best. I will definitely order again from you.

March 28, 2019  
I got the package for all the games.  I
haven’t opened the boxes yet, but I am itching too.  I will
play them with my kids.  I played Trippples years ago with
my oldest daughter and Trouble with all my kids  so I
know those two are winners.  I’m really excited to play
Chess 4.  I think that will be a great one.  Also lookibg
forward to Chessers.  Thanks also for the Tetris game.  
My youngest daughter will like that for sure.  The
packaging of the games was superb.  I appreciate all the
games arriving in good condition.  

March 25, 2019
 Don , Looks like you came through again
!!  I don't know how you do it , but I sure appreciate your
service. Thank you very much ,

February 15, 2019  
Don et al - Thanks.  What an amazing
business!  Rick

January 31, 2019  I found a vintage talking Winnie the
Pooh honey pot game in excellent condition for my 2 year
old granddaughter who loves Winnie the Pooh. The price
was better than any I found on eBay. The game arrived in
just 2 days! In time to take it on our trip to visit family
where we would be seeing our granddaughter. She LOVED
it! Her mama made room for it in their suitcase so they
could take it home on the plane. She has been playing with
it at home, almost daily. Thank you, Don!!!  

January 4, 2019
Thank you so much for sharing your
knowledge with of old board games with me.  I did go thru
my Manhunt game and it is missing a couple of pieces. I
hope to go thru the rest of the games this weekend.  I am
going to try to part out the pivot pool and skittle games.
Again thank you for all your information.  

January 2, 2019  
I did receive them (my games) Monday.
Thank you for the prompt service.  


December 31, 2018  I am looking forward to the game, it
is a birthday present for myself.....Happy New Year's Eve!
My game came today and I couldn't be happier.  Thank you
for outstanding service!

 I just received Impact Zone game and
it is in amazing shape. Thank you for working so hard to
insure it got to me in this excellent condition!  I’m very
pleased.  I hope you and your family have enjoyed the
holidays, and have a wonderful and successful 2019!!  

December 19, 2018  
I called Don's Game Closet and was
surprised to have Don at the other end of the phone.  I had
questions about different editions of a particular game and
he was very kind and helpful to me.  He is very
knowledgeable about games, shipping and responding to
personal needs, so I ordered this game.  Wow, it arrived in
record time and is in wonderful condition.  I called him to
thank him for his outstanding service.  I would highly
recommend shopping here as this is a good honest

November 15, 2018  I have ordered game rules for 2 board
games we used to play all of the time and loved. We found
the boards but no rules. I went to
Don's Game Closet and
ordered the game rules. They were emailed to me the same
day and I printed them out. I could not find these rules
anywhere else on the Internet. Excellent service and
humongous selection of games and game rules.
Unbelievable selection.  

November 13, 2018  
WOW!  Thank you so much!  Just
received HOTELS and I am thrilled!  My husband always
loved playing this game with my daughter years ago and I
purchased this as a special surprise for him.  The condition
of this is Excellent - just as you advertised.  Everything is in
wonderful condition and every piece there!  Shipping was
prompt and the game was wall packed.  Absolutely 100%
delighted and not possible to even hint at any negative.  Don
went the extra mile and sought out the correct address and
my game arrived as originally promised.  Thank you so
much, everyone at Don’s Game Closet.  Will be happy to
buy from you again and recommend you to anyone looking
for out of print games.  

October 27, 2018  
Got them.  You guys are awesome!

October 7, 2018  
Thank you so much for your very kind
and responsive email. I really appreciate it.  I also
appreciate your generous offer to send the new game as a
replacement. Thank you so much for offering that and
offering such fantastic and personalized customer service.  
Many thanks,

October 3, 2018  
Loved my game! Thank you so much!

August 7, 2018  
I bought a wooden Monopoly, Michael
Graves Edition, from 2002. When I opened my package I
could not believe my eyes! The game was brand new!!
Everything was sealed. The wood is in mint condition. All
the deeds, cards, money and dice were sealed in factory
plastic. I've been looking for this exact set for a while now.
Very hard to find. I'm super happy with my purchase.
While browsing the site I saw numerous hard to find games
and really great prices. This is absolutely the go-to place for
board games. Excellent customer service (I spoke with
Don himself, really nice guy). He even contacted me the
day I received my package to make sure I was happy with
it. Fast shipping. I ordered it in the middle of the night and
it was shipped in the morning. It says open 24 hours and
they actually are open 24/7. Definitely reputable and

July 19, 2018  
Thank you so much for getting this (rules)
to me tonight!  My kids found the game on my game shelf,
but the box with instructions was lost long ago. They'll be
excited to hear they can play after all!  I received the
instructions and was able to read them just fine.

July 18, 2018  
I just wanted to tell you I received the (3)
games today, they are in better condition than I expected! I
will be placing another order very soon. Thank you again!  

July 13, 2018
 Got the rules. Thanks so much. Going to a
family game week. Lots and lots of games. Pigmania is the
one game I'm bringing.

June 19, 2018  
Hello and thank you, we got it.  Jens

June 10, 2018  
Shipment arrived on Friday!!  Thank you.
Games brought back lots of good memories. Looking
forward to playing them with my grandson. Thanks again!  

June 5, 2018  
Thanks so much for your help and for
making sure that old unappreciated games did not end up in
the garbage—you help folks like me complete their games
and keep them in play.  

May 19, 2018  
All 5 games in my order arrived as
described, on-time and undamaged.   Thank you for your
great service    

April 23, 2018
 We are so happy with all of our games that
arrived today in perfect order.  Thank you very kindly.  It
is a pleasure to
do business with all of you at Don's Game Closet.  I
enjoyed talking with you Don the other night!  Thanks

March 7, 2018  
Hello Don, My family is thrilled with our
recently ordered game.  You guys are the best!

February 5, 2018  
Yeah, I received the (rules) download
today, downloaded and printed, so I know I have it.  
Thanks a lot,

January 21, 2018  
Cannot thank you enough!! You’ve
probably heard this situation before: I moved to a "new-to-
me" school and found game pieces, yet don’t know the
game rules.  My students will be eager to play.  I’ll
certainly check other games and purchase from you as
often as possible. What a phenomenal service. Again,

January 19, 2018  
I have the rules now thanks.  That's
excellent.  It is great there is a repository for rules of games
like this. Keep it going.  Many thanks.  

January 11, 2018  
I have searched high and low, digital
hither & google yon for these rules without success. You
have an impressive list here that, unfortunately, doesn't
include this game. Sure hope you folks can find this for
me.  Looking at your website, it seems like if anybody can
find this rule set, YOU can. Sincerely,

January 16, 2018  
Rules received, thank you very much!


December 18, 2017 I received my Code Name: Sector
game today, put the 9-Volt battery in the battery
compartment and it works great.  It looks unused too.  
Thanks so much and Merry Christmas to you.  

December 7, 2017  
Hello!  I never thought I'd be able to
write this e-mail but the day has finally come - I've found
someone who remembers Hoppin' Poppin' Spaceballs (Buzz
Lightyear Edition) ©1997, DSI Toys. My mother bought
this game for me when I was a child and we'd play
together almost every day. It eventually broke and we were
never able to find it again. Now, 20 years later, I've finally
come across Don's Game Closet. Have a very Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year,  

November 29, 2017  
Thank you for your service.  I did
receive the instructions and am very happy.  Have a great

My parents recently purchased a
collectors edition Whitman 1968 Stock Market game with
all original pieces as a birthday gift for me. I just wanted to
tell you Thank you as it is fantastic and I am very pleased.  
I love games so I will try to shop with you when I can. We
have a copy of it, but it was incomplete. Again, I sincerely
thank you for selling this to my parents.

November 15, 2017  
Thank you so much!!! Got them.  

November 5, 2017  I want to thank you for responding to
my email with the game's name.  I happened upon a thrift
store that had an Outta Control game for $1.50, so I had to
buy. Thanks again for your time.  

Novemeber 4, 2017  
Thank you. Yes, I received the game
rules. Very speedy and efficient.

October 18, 2017  
I received my game today and was
surprised at how fast your service is.  My game was well-
packed and is in great condition.  I will be ordering more
games from you for the holidays.  Thanks for your
wonderful service.  

September 1, 2017  Great! Thanks for being awesome
with communication. . . I'll be placing an order for the
game next week.  

July 10, 2017  
I just wanted to let you know the new
Spino/Trex battle game arrived in perfect condition!  I
appreciate all the special wrapping!  It worked! My
grandson will be ecstatic!  Thank you so  much for all your
help! Have a great day!

March 10, 2017  
I'm a game collector, buyer, seller, lover
and I'm always looking for instructions/rules that are
missing out of games...especially rare and vintage games..
limited production, obscure games. I just stumbled across
your site during a Google search for a game. Just for fun, I
looked up a few really obscure games I have in your
listings, and you actually have the instructions for these
games, so I know you have a great selection. Wow...I'm
not sure how you got all these instructions, but from now'll be my Go-to when I can't find game
rules/instructions. Nice to find you.  

January 15, 2017  
Thank you so much for these
instructions.  I often frequent a store that sells used
games.  I'll keep you in mind the next time I come across
an unruly game. These are just what
I need.  

January 14, 2017  
I look forward to continuing purchasing
from your site.  I have always received quality items that
were packaged with care and accurately described.  Best

January 14, 2017  
I have not forgot about you!!  I bought
a game from you a while back...and I CHEERS you every
time the game is pulled out.  

January 7, 2017  
By the way, I love your web site.  I use
it quite often as a reference.  


December 28, 2016  Got it!  Thank you for the excellent

December 23, 2016
 I recently purchased the Candy Land
game and I was very pleased with your services. The game
arrived promptly even with the holidays quickly
approaching. The price was great and the quality of the
shipping left the game in good condition.  This is a gift for
my brother and I know he is going to be very excited that
there was one out there for sale!  Thank you!  Happy

December 7, 2016  
Thanks so much for the game!  Had
one years ago which my parents purchased for us at a
garage sale for 50 cents.  They wanted to have one for the
grandkids.  Very pleased.  Cheers!

November 26, 2016
Received and all good!  Thanks for
the fast response.  

November 16, 2016
 I cannot thank you enough for your
expertise on games and how it helped me to find what I
needed.  Best Regards & Have a Happy Holiday!  

September 30, 2016
Hello,  Just a "thank you" for shipping
so fast!  Very happy with purchase. Goosebumps One Day
at Horrorland game by Milton Bradley.  Packaged very well,
too. Your store will be the first place I will look in the

June 10, 2016  
I have been buying from Don's Game
now for over a year. The games he sells are top
notch. The quality and condition of the games are
unmatched. However, that's not what makes buying from
Don so amazing. Don is an absolute delight to speak with. I
could speak with him for hours, in fact, I have spoken with
him for hours on several occasions. He remembers who I
am EVERY TIME. He has even taken the time to call me
personally to discuss my specific questions about his
games. I have never ever had such a pleasant experience
buying anything before. That's what makes Don's Game
Closet so special. He adds a very personal touch to every
sale he makes. He is more concerned about bringing
families together and delivering you your favourite games
just how you remember them. I would recommend that
anyone who is looking for a vintage or out of print game to
only buy from Don. You won't regret the decision.

April 28, 2016  
I received the Wildlife Adventure game this
morning that I ordered just a few days ago.  It is in very
good condition with all game pieces.  Thank you for such
prompt service.  

April 25, 2016
 I received the game rules and am very
pleased!   Lots of games now for the Grandkids and now,
thanks to Don's Game Closet, they will know how to play
them   Thank you very much,  I am very pleased!-- and
yes, I have book marked your webpage for future
reference!!  Thanks again  

April 20, 2016  
Thanks so much.  I purchased this game at
a garage sale and it had no rules.  I am a volunteer
vocabulary teacher in nine schools and am always looking
for vocabulary games.  You provide a great service.  

March 16, 2016  
Thanks very much. This is a great
service (our rules section), ideal for people like me who
buy second hand games from charity shops.  Thanks

January 27, 2016  
This game did not disappoint!  Don
reached out to me shortly after my order was placed to
make sure he understood what I was looking for and the
game arrived 2 days later.  I'm so glad I stumbled upon
Don's Game Closet, and I will be back!

December 20, 2015  As always I absolutely LOVE you
guys! I never purchase from anyone else unless you simply do
not have a copy of something that I'm dying to play. I have
been so impressed with your friendliness and the fantastic
quality of the games you sell. I know when I buy from you,
I'm getting a top notch trip down memory lane. Sincerely,

December 18, 2015  
Thank you again for all of your help.  I
know my 4 children and their children will be very happy with
their games from you. Happy Holidays.

October 29, 2015  
Highly impressed with your site...easy to
navigate and containing much more info than I could have
imagined.  I really appreciate the fact I can search by year,
type of game, or so many other ways.  I'm already spreading
the word to friends on how impressed I am with your set up.  
For those on the Christmas list that 'have everything' what
better surprise gift than a game from their past.  My shopping
will start right here.  

August 14, 2015  
Its taken me a bit to write this, but having
started collecting board games a few months ago, I've been
really looking for a good place to search, since its very hard
without going to garage sales and getting breaks on eBay, to
find vintage board games.  Its even harder to find the exact
conditions and details on what should be included during a
purchase.  However, searching for different things, I ran
across Don's site, and spent hours combing over the huge
amount of games offered, bookmarking so many, and slowly
deciding exactly which ones I wanted.  Finally, I sent Don an
e-mail about info on stock, and to my surprise, he offered to
talk to me on the phone about any questions, shipping, and
condition. It was a lovely 20-minute conversation and even
though he assured me if I had any issue, I could e-mail him
back, I already felt that wouldn't have been a problem.  I
ordered 12 games, and it only took a few days to get to my
home, and everything was incredibly well-packed, and exactly
the condition specified.  I couldn't have been happier.  I post
this as I start to plan my next order, and I can recommend, to
anyone with even a small interest in board games, to buy from

August 12, 2015   
I've just paid by PayPal.  It was very easy
this time! I don't mind paying a few dollars for a great service.
Thank you very much  Kind Regards  

August 21, 2015  I received the game on Monday, August
17th....delivered right to my front door.  Thank you so VERY
much for all your help. Many friends will be enjoying this
great game.  I look forward to playing the game.  

August 2, 2015
 Thanks so much.  My grandkids love this

July 11, 2015  
I just wanted to let you know I received the
"Game of  the States" this week that I purchased from you
and could not be more pleased with it.  

July 1, 2015  
Thank you so much for giving us a call and
helping us figure out how to put together the credit card
machine. We have enjoyed playing the game and will refer
your company to our friends!   

June 11, 2015  
Hi Don, I came across your store on a web
search. I'm not after any games, but I saw the pics of your
store and of yourself and read about you - and I just wanted to
wish you well and to say that I'm happy someone is out there
providing, in a modest way, such a friendly, wholesome and
beneficial service to the world.  I'm in the UK so I can't stop
by and say hi, but I wish you all the best for your store.  Kind

May 20, 2015
That was fast!  What a great service.  My 6
year old bought this game at the thrift store and was all excited
to play it.  It had all of the pieces except the directions.  Thank
you for your fast, convenient, and well priced service!

April 26, 2015   
Thank you for your time and response to my
question.  I appreciate it.  You have a great website!

April 21, 2015  
Everything came through fine. I am very
pleased to find you because now I can introduce this game to
my grandchildren --- something old grandmom played back
when God created dirt!
Thanks again!

April 19, 2015  
Yes, I did receive the games rules I
requested.  Thank you very much for your super prompt

April 12, 2015
 A few years ago you located a "Billionaire"
game (the one by Happy Hour) for me.  Thank you very
much.  I am saving that game, along with some other
"originals," I own for my grandchildren.  Thanks!  

February 22, 2015  
Got it. Thank you for the rules and for
doing it so quickly!  I'm so glad I found your site!  

February 12, 2015  
Thank you very much. Good fast service.

February 9, 2015  
The game has arrived and it was in
excellent condition. Thank you! And also thank you for being
helpful with the problems with the payment.  It was a pleasure
to deal with you!      Thank you!  

February 7, 2015.  
Love the store.  I just wanted to take a
minute to tell you how awesome your team is.  I've ordered
Jumanji and Zathura and both games were in great condition
and arrived faster than expected. I have a 7 year old daughter
who loves board games. From now on Don's Game Closet is
my first stop when trying to find a classic board game for my
daughter. Thank you for the great service.

February 6, 2015.  
We have received the game's
instructions.  Thanks for your prompt service.  

January 12, 2015.
 Got them. Perfect. Thank you very much.
Now, if you know someone who wants to buy a used copy of
the game, let me know?  Thank you.  

January 12, 2015.  
I received all six orders from you without
any problem. Thank you.  BTW, your website is totally
awesome. I find that board and card gaming can be quite good
for relaxation. I also find it very useful for stimulating the
mind.  Again, thank you very much for your service.  


December 25, 2014  Merry Christmas!!!  I wanted extend the
season's best to you as I was thinking about you this morning.
Your fantastic service and rapid-fire response to my order was
exceptional!  The special parcel arrived by post yesterday.  
You are a magician!  I guess you have some pull with
international shipping.  I am very appreciative.  

December 23, 2014
Wanted to say thank you very much!  I
received the Alien Anatomy game and this is going to be a
great memory for my son.  I was happy to find another one
on your site and now he has his baby back to share with his
children, once he becomes a father.

November 20, 2014
 Hello Don, I just had to express how
happy and pleased I am with the Cranium Balloon Lagoon
game that I ordered from you. It is as stated in excellent
condition. I know I will order more vintage games from you
and will tell my friends. Thanks a lot.

November 15, 2014
 They (the rules) came through fine. We
will be contacting you about any others (rules) she needs. She
is trying to keep the grandchildren off the tablets for games as
much as she can.  Again, thanks very much. You have great
customer service.  If I may, I will use this experience as an
example to clients.

 Just wanted to say thank you for your
prompt service. I received my 3 "Hot Hoops" Basketball games
quickly and in good condition.  Plus you always responded
quickly to my emails.  I appreciate it. I will keep you in mind
for future use and will let other people know.  Thank you
again and may you have a blessed holiday!

November 14, 2014
 Thank you. Very, very nice game.....
YOUR Game pieces DO match the exact colors of the Start
Piece of the Game! So, again thank you for a very nice game.
And it was nice to talk to you again. I hope business is Good!  
Hope to buy a game from you soon.

 Thanks so much for the Chess Rules!  I
received a call from my daughter yesterday indicating that her
4th grade daughter would be receiving Chess instruction in
school.  My daughter asked us to donate this teaching edition,
but the rules were missing.  You are a life saver.  Thanks so
much for quick service!  I'm taking this complete set to the
school, now, thanks to your assistance. Sincerely,

October 25, 2014
 I really like your store.  I have over 600
games and I use your website for game information and
pricing my games.  

October 25, 2014
Got my rules.  Thanks!  Love your store!

September 14, 2014
 Hi Thank you.  We were cleaning out
the toy cupboard when we came across the Stadium Checkers
game but no box.  Now my grandchildren are enjoying this
game with us.  We had a little discussion about just how the
game went so having the directions is great.  Looking forward
to many enjoyable evenings with the grandchildren.  

August 28, 2014
 Hi Don, Just wanted to let you know that
the Pig Pong game that I ordered for Christmas 2013 has been
such a super hit with our grandchildren.  Our own children
and their grandparents played this many years ago and I
wanted to find it again for our grandchildren.  In this day and
age of Pads and Pods I wondered if they would find it boring!  
I didn't have to worry about that.  All they needed was Pig
Puffers and as they say the rest was history.  Thank you so
much for keeping these games alive.  I have a video of them
playing that makes us laugh out loud every time we play it.  
Wish there was a way I could share it with you. Thanks again,

August 24, 2014
 Thanks Don,  You were so patient and
helpful tonight.  Great customer service!  Its obvious you are
a happy person that loves what he does!  I will definitely
recommend your site to friends!  Thanks again!  

June 20, 2014
 We received our Lost Cities: A Daring
Adventure For Two today. After searching everywhere, I
finally stumbled upon Don’s Game Closet online. I was thrilled
that I had finally found the game. I ordered it and two days
later it arrived in the mail. I never expected such quick
delivery. Upon opening the package, I saw that the game was
in near perfect condition. It looked like it had barely even been
used and it was so much better than I expected. I fully plan on
ordering other games in the future and will definitely
Don’s Game Closet to friends. Thank you so

June 8, 2014
 I just returned home to Ann Arbor and Internet
service from the Michigan UP. Thank you so much for all
your communication. I think I correctly located the game on
your site and made the purchase. You have been a pleasure to
do business with.  I look forward to future purchases, You do
a wonderful job with your website. Best regards,

May 15, 2014
 The game of Operation arrived today ahead of
expectations!  Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to do
business with you and talking to you the other night!  Thanks

May 11, 2014
 I received the instructions that I ordered.  
Thank you very much for taking the time and supplying the
effort to make this available.  I purchased the game second
hand and it had no instructions with it.  I used to play this
game when I was young and was excited to come across it
again.  Keep up the good work!  Sincerely,

April 11, 2014
 I just wanted to say thank you very much, the
game arrived here (Australia) safely today.  I really appreciate
the quick service.  All the Best,

March 9, 2014
 Thanks for such a quick reply!  I’m
impressed!  She did receive it!  This site is so fast!  Thank
you for your help!  I will definitely spread the word about
your company.  

February 26, 2014
 Just a quick note to let you know how
my wife appreciates her handheld Yahtzee game I purchased.
She had one for the last few years, which she got as a
Christmas gift, until she finally wore it out. By dumb luck, last
Fall I was searching the web and found your website. Sure,
she has an iPad and iPhone, but you can’t beat the old games.  

February 12, 2014
I just want to comment on how well your
representative handled my "dispute" today. A few weeks ago, I
ordered what I thought was a game but turned out to be just
the rules to the game. My mistake. Having not received any
communication from you, I thought, I'd contact PayPal. They
apparently contacted you and I got a personal phone call from
your customer service. After a short discussion, I learned
about my mistake of buying rules and not a game. Rules had
been delivered to another email address in a timely manner.
Your representative was very nice about my misunderstanding
and handled himself in a professional and personal manner. We
had a nice chat. He explained what I could do to try to request
your company to find the game. After hanging up, I
immediately called PayPal to clear up the "dispute" hoping that
it will not bring negative feedback to the company. If this is a
representation of how you handle your business then I would
gladly recommend you and buy from you myself! Thank you.

February 6, 2014
 Got it. Thank you so much.  My daughter
fondly remembers this game and I can now send it to her with
all the parts accounted for.

January 1, 2014
 This Christmas I ordered 2 board games for
our daughter & her family.  She had lamented the fact that
when we moved from one home to another that some of her
favorite board games ended up in a yard sale.  I started with a
Facebook request, which resulted in 1 game that was torn.  I
then started looking on-line for board games for sale.  This
resulted in 2 reasonably priced games from the time period of
her teen years.  These were from
Don's Game Closet.  They
were shipped with very personal care & phone call from Don
himself.  Our daughter & her family were very excited about
the games.  They said "They were our best Christmas gift
ever."  I'm going to contact my brother to see if he would like
to receive one board game he & I liked playing.  Many, many
thanks to Don & his staff for excellence in game choices,
prices and personal care.  Thank you for making this a Very,
Very Merry Christmas   


December 28, 2013  Hi there, Got ‘em (rules) & thanks!  I’ve
purchased from you before & I’m so thrilled that you have
this biz to provide the lost rules for these games…

December 28, 2013
 Thanks so much for the set of rules.  
The two page color set is perfect for my recently acquired Hip
Flip game.  You have a simply great web site.  Thanks again..

November 13, 2013
 Package (game) received today all in
good order and I didn’t have to pay any duty. I’m very
pleased with the (Pokerkub) game.  Thanks very much.  

November 8, 2013
 Received the game today. Yea!!!!!!!!!!! I
originally bought this for my son when it first came out, years
later gave it to a friend.... I now have grandchildren who will
absolutely love this.  Thank you for sending it so quickly.

October 11, 2013
 Bought the Pursuit game by Aurora.  Was
complete except for instructions.  Found this site that had a
huge amount of instructions.  Found mine and ordered it.  
Was great and fast email.  Now I can play my game. Thanks
Joe and Jill

August 22, 2013
 Thank you for your speedy service. The
copy  (rules)is clear. My game of Oilman is now complete,
and we can hopefully learn how to play this game. Sincerely,

August 2, 2013
 Unbelievable - I ordered The Brain Game on
Wednesday at 2:09 pm and it arrived on Friday at 12:50 pm -  
less than 48 hours later!  I don't think I've  ever received such
fast service before.  And to top it  off, the game is indeed in
excellent condition, just as advertised. Thank you!  

August 2, 2013
 I received the rules in good order, Thank you
very much!  These were lost by my son's friends a few years
ago.  I couldn't find them online at the time and hadn't looked
again until this week.  Excellent service!  

July 8, 2013
Thank you for your time and for bringing back
the classics so that people can sit around the table together,
with their families, just like in the "old days". We have three
kids and we still have family game night (which is how we
started acquiring so many games!) Even with two teenagers in
the house, we're a close-knit family and I think a big part of
that comes from spending time and playing together. We
appreciate you and your efforts to keep this tradition alive. :)  

June 21, 2013
 Wow, what excellent customer service.  The
new scans look appreciably better.  Thanks for taking the time
to rescan them and share them with me.  You are definitely a
class act.  

June 7, 2013
 You saved the night for us in allowing us to
play one of our favorite games from 20 years ago. I bought
the game online and then discovered the instructions weren't
included and we couldn't remember exactly how to play. I
really appreciate the very unexpected personal attention. I've
bookmarked your page and will recommend you to everyone
in need of your service. I'm posting my positive experience on
my Facebook page for all to see.  Thanks again,

May 15, 2013
 I got my game in the mail yesterday.  My son
and I have played MANY games!  It's great!  So glad that he is
capable of doing something other than computer Minecraft...
While I'm writing, I am looking for a complete set of the
Shoot Out at the OK Corral.  Will spread the word on your
wonderful games. We are good at that!!! Many thanks,

May 8, 2013
 Hi, I'm quite impressed by your site and the
massive catalog of games you have on there, but I'm hoping
that maybe you can help me track down a game from my
childhood. The problem is that I can't remember it's name....
Thanks in advance for ANY info you can give me! If anybody
out there would have an idea, I'm hoping it's you!Wow!  
(1993 Tower of the Wizard King game by Parker Brothers).  
That IS the game! I can't thank you enough for helping me out
with that!  Amazing how despite always searching for board
games with Tower in it I've never seen anything but Dark

April 30, 2013
 Yes I received the instructions.  Thank you
ever so much.  Can now enjoy the game.  Thanks again for
very quick response.  

April 20, 2013
 I picked up a card game called "Hobo" several
weeks ago and have been searching online for rules ever since.
I thought for sure I'd be able to pick up the rules from you,
but they don''t seem to be here. Frankly, if
Don's Game Closet
doesn't have it, I'm pretty sure no one else will either.

April 3, 2013
 THANK YOU !   We received both game rules.
You guys rock!
Chuck & Pam

March 26, 2013
 I had been searching for a vintage
boardgame and stumbled upon your website.  I have never
seen anything like it.  You must have the largest vintage game
website in America.  Amazingly enough, your indexing links
makes searching for my game very easy.  Thanks for
providing this service.  A Very Happy Customer!

March 12, 2013
 The Head to Head Perfection game arrived.  
It's perfect!  Thanks,

February 10, 2013
 Your website is wonderful.  Cheryl

February 6, 2013
 Game rules were received. Thank you so
much for your assistance and prompt sending of the game

February 4, 2013
 Thank you.  Was able to print it with no
problem.  I appreciate you finding them (rules) for me.  

February 1, 2013
  THANK YOU!   A thousand times thank
you to
Don's Game Closet!  Not only did my copy of the
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Board Game come faster than
expected, the condition it was in exceeded the description
considerably!  This game is in pristine condition and is brand
new outside of some shelf wear on the box. The level of
service I received here was some of the best I've experienced
hands down.  Don explained, in great detail, the shipping
process, the game quality and totally put my mind at ease.  I
highly recommend
Don's Game Closet to anyone that may be
considering a purchase here and is on the fence about it. 10/10
rating in my book! Thanks again Don.  
Mark  (Canada)

January 11, 2013  Thank you very much.  They (rules) are
fantastic. I will let all the mums know at school and our play
group of this service you are providing..  

January 5, 2013
 Hi, it's (CARLA)!!!!!!! I checked out the
website. It is awesome!!!!!! It will take me a while to figure
out what I want to order.

January 2, 2013
 The two Masterpiece games arrived and
they are GREAT!  Frankly, I can't tell the difference between
the "Good Condition"  and the "Excellent Condition"  game.  
They are both in excellent condition in our opinions.  I couldn't
be more satisfied and happy with the games or with the
service and help you provided!  Thank you so much.  


December 14, 2012  Thanks.  I received it (Pig Pong) well in
time for Saturday. It is going to bring back some wonderful
laughs.  My husband and I dated when we were 17 and now
in our 50's we still recall stories when we first got married and
played this no-brainer fun game. Our kids, young adults, have
heard about it over the years, so it will be so fun to pull it out
and play. I shared your store with others just in case they too
are seeking some happy memories of games of the past.  
Happy you,  

December 10, 2012
 This is what I call "WOW" service!!  
Thank you so much for your prompt shipment.  I'm so
excited...God bless you :-)  

November 23, 2012
 First off, your web site is by far the best
for listing games, release date, description, as well as for sale,
that I believe I have ever seen.  Do you know of other web
sites that specialize in other toy categories, that are as GOOD
AND COMPLETE like your site?  (or anyone close).  Some of
the toys I am interested in are the 1960s Marx Shooting
Gallery,  Metal play sets for toy cars, like split level service
stations or plastic sets like the 1950's drive in movie, etc.  

November 18, 2012
 YEE HAW!!!! I played this game in
1967 and my son can play it now!!  Thanks for the rules!!!  

November 13, 2012
 Just to let you know that I received
‘Press Ups.’  Thank you so much for your great service and
for helping me.  My very best regards.

September 23, 2012
 They (the rules) have been received!  
Thank you so much!  This game came from my Grandparents
home and I wanted to teach my children how to play but I
couldn't remember!!   Thanks for helping us make memories
(hopefully good ones)!!!  

August 19, 2012
 Hi Don,  My Jackpot Yahtzee arrived a few
days after I made the Internet purchase. It's in great condition
and has plenty of score sheets. I taught my husband how to
play tonight. He's not much of a board game person, but he
did quite well -- beat me the first game! Beginners luck for
him, but also luck for me. He wanted to play it again! (This
time I won.) He enjoyed the strategy involved and the fact that
it doesn't take very long to complete a game. Looking forward
to lots of game time down the road.  

July 25, 2012  Hi Don!  Once again, I played this 1968
Regatta game last night and I am learning sooo much about
wind.  My husband is the sailor and I’m in training and your
board game is amazing because I’m actually learning!!!  

July 20, 2012
 I ordered a game from Don's Game Closet.
Then I got a call from them and one of their employees talked
with my husband about my specific interest in games. The
person at DGC learned that I buy games with cards having
pictures of celebrities and movie stars. Then the employee at
DGC told my husband about a game called Picture Perfect
with hundreds of cards with drawings of celebrities. Exactly
the kind of game I look for. I didn't even know about this
game. I went to the DGC site and found they had 2 of these
games in stock and bought both of them.  The point is that the
employee at DGC called me and was kind enough to
recommend a game that had just what I was looking for.  I
haven't experienced that class of customer service in a long
time. A real thumbs up to
Don's Game Closet.  Linda  (We
made a call after receiving her email about a specific interest in
certain types of games)

June 18, 2012  I am very happy with your Don's Game
Closet service! You had the game that I wanted, in excellent
condition, at a very reasonable price, and you shipped it to me
the next day! Thank you so much!

June 2, 2012
 After another disappointing shipment from
eBay, I took to the Internet to see if I could find the missing
pieces to the item that was advertised on eBay as
COMPLETE'.  Today was my lucky day! I 'walked' into
Don's Game Closet and was amazed.  An awesome website,
easy to use, 'ACCURATE' information, and obviously created
by someone who cares about preserving the days of old and
bringing good memories back to life!   Not only is this site all
you could ever want, the personal attention you receive makes
you feel like you are part of the family.  June 5, 2012  I
received my items yesterday.  They are perfect.
are fast!!  :-)  Thanks Don.

May 16, 2012
 I wanted to let you know that I received my
game instructions! Thank you so much for your quick
service.  I found my game at my parent's w/ all the pieces and
my four year old really wanted to play. But I had no
instructions. This really helped me out!!  Thanks again.

May 9, 2012
 I received the game rules and have them all
printed out. Thank you so much for being consistent with me
to get them. Have had this game for years and the rules were
misplaced, so it's great to have someone such as you to go to.
I will pass your web site on.  

April 15, 2012
 Thank you.  We just played the Sinking of the
Titanic game tonight thanks to you folks :-)  Mahalo  

April 11, 2012
 I love all the games I have gotten from you!

April 6, 2012
 The Tickle Bee arrived (yesterday) and looks
great. Brings back memories! Thanks so much for sending it
along! It will be fun sharing this old game with younger folk.  

April 1, 2012
 Thank you very much for "Bringing Families
Together"  by providing an exceptional online resource for
vintage out-of-print board games.  My family and I have a
1968 Risk Board Game.  We've had our game shelved for
years because the game rules have been MIA.  Thanks to
Don's Game Closet, we now have a copy of the game rules.  
We are looking forward to adding Risk to our weekend list of
family games.  I appreciate the time and effort you provided to
correct the "pdf-file print challenge" I experienced.  The
personal service via telephone calls (on a Sunday!) was a
pleasant and welcomed surprise.  I've already highly
recommended your well-organized and easy-to-use website via
email to family and friends.  Mahalo a nui loa (Hawaiian for
"Thank you very much.")  

March 12, 2012
 I recently ordered a Mall Madness game
from you and I am very pleased,   It was in excellent
condition.  My daughter had this game when she was very
little and now she is in her 30's.. Thank you very much.  

March 7, 2012
 I did get the Mystery Mansion rules and I was
able to open and print them. Thank you.  So glad you guys
exist.I will keep your website handy for the future.  I am a big
game buyer.  I buy a lot of games at rummage sales and
antique sales.  A lot of times these lack instructions. Thank
you again.

February 15, 2012
 Just wanted to let you know I received
Oldies But Goodies game in perfect condition!!  Thank you so
much and thank you for the prompt delivery!  

January 24, 2012
 We received the 2000 Strat-O-Matic
Football game today and my kids love it...thank you for the
discount on the shipping option.  I just noticed that refund in
my email. That was thoughtful. Thank you again for
