An in-stock product is any product that we currently have in-stock in our warehouse ready for shipment.
A ‘Preorder’ is any product that we do not currently have in stock but that we have pre-ordered with our suppliers. For more information refer to our Preorder and Kickstarer policy.
While we endeavour to list the expected arrival date from our suppliers (on the product page) for all preorder products, we unfortunately cannot guarantee when preorders will arrive. Upon arrival we aim to ship out all preorders within 24 hours of receipt into our warehouse.
Yes, however, we recommend separating preorder products and in-stock products onto different orders as orders containing preorder products will not ship or be available for pickup until every product on your order has arrived in our warehouse. For more information please refer to our Preorder and Kickstarter policy.
When a Pre-order goes out of stock that means that we have sold through of all the allocation that we have assigned for the Pre-Order. However, as part of our In-Stock Policy, we only put up 75% of our entire allocation for a product to ensure that we have a buffer for short shipment and/or damages. Any remaining stock above Pre-Order sales will be available for purchase once we have confirmed and checked that all Pre-Orders have been accounted for. We recommend signing up to the In-Stock Notifier for the Pre-Order which will send out an email once any remaining stock goes live on the website.
Yes, requests to cancel your pre-order will be accepted up until your order is ready to ship. Once your pre-order has arrived and is ready to ship, your order status will change from ‘processing’ to shipped and you will be provided a tracking number. At this stage, cancellations are no longer possible. Please note that voluntary change of mind cancellations are only eligible for store credit. Refer to our Preorder and Kickstarter policy for more specifics on the process.
A backorder is any product that is currently out of stock on our webstore and that we do not currently have a pre-order with our suppliers. Backordered products do not have an estimated restock date.
Products listed as ‘out of stock’ are unavailable for backorder. At More Than Meeples, we believe in only selling products that we either have ‘in-stock’ or that we have an active pre-order with our suppliers. If you are interested in ordering a product that is currently not in stock, send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to source the product for you as soon as possible.
The weight and dimensions of products can be found in the product table below the product description. Note this information is provided as guidance only and is typically the product packaging dimensions that we use for freight calculations. Actual product dimensions may vary. For more information on any particular product please contact us prior to purchasing. Preorder weight and dimensions are a best guess and are not finalised until the product is available for shipment at our warehouse.

At More Than Meeples, we check every product that arrives from our suppliers for damage prior to shipping out for your peace of mind. If a product arrives to our warehouse with box damage, our suppliers provide us with varying amounts of credit depending on the severity of the damage. In 99% of the cases, damage is merely cosmetic and does not affect game components. As such we discount these games based on the credit provided to us by our suppliers. Effectively, we can sell you a perfectly good product (with a bit of box damage) for a reduced rate! Browse all our damaged products in our MTM Bazaar!
The More Than Meeples Bazaar or ‘MTM Bazaar‘ is the home of all our damaged games, comics, collectibles, graphic novels, RPGs and more. When products arrive damaged from suppliers they are heavily discounted and go onto our bazaar.
