- Economy - This is our default option and provides the customer the
cheapest shipment option. Please note that with Economy, your order must
be in the 48 contiguous states and cannot be a P.O. Box, APO, or shipped
to Hawaii or Alaska. Economy shipments may, in some instances, take an
extra day for processing/shipping. Economy shipments vary in transit times
more than UPS or Priority Mail. See below for Economy estimations of transit
times once the order is shipped. These are estimates only and can vary depending
on weather conditions and isssues beyond our control. If you need a package
delivered to a P.O. Box or APO, you must select USPS as the shipping method.

day to process your order. After it is packed and shipped, Economy estimates are
- Midwest : 1-3 business days (M-F that are non-holidays)

- USPS (United States Postal Service) - All International
orders are shipped via Priority Mail International. Alaska and Hawaii orders are shipped via
standard U.S. Postal Service. U.S. Customers can choose USPS, but costs are higher.
Priority Mail International (Air) shipments usually take 1-2
weeks for delivery. Please note that all shipments via the Post Office cost more due to many factors and their prices are not negotiable.
- Post Office Drop-offs
- We generally make 2 trips to the Post Office each week. Therefore, It may take 1-3 business days before USPS orders are shipped.
- Delivery Times
- USPS shipment times vary greatly. Many times shipments are held up at customs when entering other countries
- Priority Mail International : 1-2 weeks
- Package hasn't arrived yet? This is what to do.
- UPS - Please wait 10 days after the shipment has been sent. After that time, notify us and we will file a lost package claim with UPS. They usually do an investigation (2-10 days), then notify us of the results. At that point, we will send a new package or arrange other terms.
- USPS - Priority Mail International - Please wait 6 weeks after the shipment has been sent. After that time, notify us and we'll file a lost package claim.
At Fair Play Games, we reuse boxes and packaging materials whenever
possible. This saves on packaging costs and helps protect the environment. We hope
you understand and support this effort.
Price Match Policy...
We will price match a competitor's prices - please read below for
restrictions and explanations.
- Pricematching can only be done from ONE store per order.
In the past, we used to allow price matching of single items from
different locations. This has led to us losing money on
- Item(s) must be in stock at the location being price
matched and must be able to add to their shopping cart. Many
times our competitors don't have items in stock and don't reflect
price increases by the game manufacturer.
- Only valid at time of ordering - Please include in the
comments section during checkout the items you wish to price match AND the competitor's prices. If paying by Paypal, please ask for a revised total amount before sending money.
- Price matching is NOT valid when using discount codes.
- Exceptions - If we are currently offering a Free
Shipping discount code, you may still price match other websites as long as those websites offer free shipping as well.
- There are a few occasions where if we price matched, we'd lose
money. This may happen when a website is going out of business
or clearing out a line of games. If this is the case, we'll be
honest and kindly let you know that at that price, we'd lose money
and you will probably want to get those items from the other
website. This is not common and has only happened a few times
in Fair Play Games history.
