Frequently Asked Questions:
Here we will endeavour to answer the most commonly asked questions we get both here online and in our shop in Canberra.
Q: Why are the prices online different to the prices in the shop?
A: The online store and the Canberra shop are run independently from each other under 'The Games Capital' banner. As a result there are different stock levels and different promotions in each store.

Q: Will you match your online prices in the shop?
A: In line with our main aim - to keep all customers happy - we WILL MATCH OUR ONLINE PRICES IN THE SHOP, with the exception of items where the price has been reduced from our regular online prices.
We do however ask all customers to print out what they were looking at buying in the shop as our internet prices do occasionally change - and staff can only match prices that are currently valid.
