Privacy & Security Notice
Please review our Privacy & Security Notice, which also governs your visit to Empire Game Center LLC, to understand our practices.
Credit Card Payments
Currently we only accept Credit Card payments where both the Shipping AND Billing address match.
We understand this may cause a mild inconvenience for gift orders, students, people who are out of town, etc.
We recommend using Paypal if you intend to use a credit card for an order that is not shipping to the Billing Address of the Credit Card.
If your Billing and Shipping do not match a temporary hold may still be placed on your card by our credit card processor if you attempt to use the card. Please make sure both addresses match before clicking place order.
EmpireGameCenter.com/Empire Game Center LLC is not responsible for your actions if you attempt to use a credit card many times and a massive hold is temporarily placed on your funds.

EmpireGameCenter.com attempts to be as accurate as possible.

Sealed/Unopened Merchandise - Must contact us within 48 hours of receiving the item for return authorization. Return must be received within 7 business days of customer receiving the merchandise.
We pay for the return shipping if we made an error, you pay if you ordered the wrong item or simply are returning a no longer wanted item.
The refund will be issued within 3-7 business days of the return of the product.
If the product is received back in altered condition (e.g. a sealed board game opened, a booster pack opened, a crease on a near-mint roleplaying book etc.), then it will be treated as a sale to us of a used item, not as a return, and your credit will depend on what we would normally pay for that used product (if any).
If you have purchased a factory sealed item that is missing pieces, parts, instructions, etc., please let us know and we will contact the manufacturer to obtain replacement pieces.

When an order is shipped to you per your instructions, it is possible that the government of the country you requested the order shipped to, may charge fees, custom duties or other taxes on these goods. The entire responsibility of such fees, duties or taxes is the responsibility of the buyer. If we, the shipper, are charged any such fees, we will charge you, in turn, for those fees. This applies even if you, the buyer, choose not to accept the shipment.
If an order is returned to us, due to our failure to put an accurate address, because we have instructed you to refuse this order, because we have shipped the wrong items, or because we asked the shipping company to return the order, then our company is entirely responsible for the shipping charges, both to and from you, the buyer. Otherwise, the shipping costs, both to and from, are your responsibility and any charges made to us will, in turn, be charged to you.
