That Old Wallpaper (PRE-ORDER)

 

OVERVIEW

In That Old Wallpaper, you attempt to recover the wall of a house with wallpaper, matching as many patterns as you can.

In the game, a number of locations are available where wallpaper cards will come up for grabs. Each turn, players simultaneously choose a location, and if they're the only one to pick a location, they get the card or cards in that location. If you choose the same location as someone else, each of you receives a "hazy memory" card that features a wallpaper pattern along only one edge instead of along all four edges.

When you receive regular wallpaper cards, you must add them to your other played cards immediately, ideally matching the pattern halves to create a complete pattern. Patterns come in four colours, with each colour having two sizes. A wild pattern is also available, which seems kind of weird, but so be it. To end a turn, deal a new wallpaper card to each location, which means that some locations will likely have more cards than other ones.

At game's end, use your hazy memory cards to complete patterns on the edge of your wallpaper, then score for each colour of pattern. The score of a pattern is the number of large symbols of that colour multiplied by the number of small symbols, so if you don't have at least one large and small symbol, you score nothing for that colour!

Shipping

All online orders are picked from our separate warehouse. We always ensure that your games are well packed before leaving. Wherever possible we'll re-use a cardboard box that we received games in from one of our suppliers. We figure it's better that way for our planet. But we do also use new boxes and wraps. If you have a strong preference either way please let us know in your Order Comments.

PRE-ORDERS

When we are notified of a new item, we will list it for pre-order with an estimated arrival window. Pre-order means we are taking advanced orders for an item. It has not been received yet and we are unable to ship until a later date. The pre-order option is good way to lock in your order for an item that could potentially sell out by the time we are ready to ship. Pre-orders will be fulfilled in the order that they are placed.

We no longer require payment in advance for pre-order items.


Placing an Order for a Pre-Order Item 

The process for placing a pre-order is the same as for ordering anything else through our webstore, except no payment details are taken at the final stage. Instead you will be asked to confirm your pre-order following which you will be emailed a Confirmation Order for your pre-order item.

IMPORTANT: Please do not add in stock and pre-order items on the same order; these need to be submitted on separate orders. Any in stock items ordered together with a pre-order will not be reserved. Additional items can be added to a pre-order once it is in stock and ready to ship.

ALSO: Please place separate orders for pre-order items unless they are part of a set and will be released and made available at the same time.

 

Paying for a Pre-Order Item

Payment for a pre-order item is not required until closer to inventory arrival. Once we are notified by a supplier that a pre-order item is about to ship we will e-mail you an invoice for payment. This invoice will direct you to the checkout page of our webstore where final payment can then be made. At this time any gift cards or loyalty vouchers can also be applied, other items from our store can also be added.

You will have 5 days to complete payment; if payment is not received within this time frame, your pre-order will be cancelled, and inventory opened to the public. Please pay attention to your inbox during the estimated arrival window for all your pre-order items. 

Once payment is made you will receive an email confirmation from us of your order. Further emails will be sent once your order ships including tracking information.
