In the wake of widespread state and local lockdown or “safer-at-home” orders, we’ve been receiving notices from a number of game companies that have suspended shipments due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Luma Imports games are shipped in the U.S. from a third-party logistics warehouse in Michigan, which is currently under a lockdown order, so Luma has suspended shipments until at least April 13, when the order is scheduled to expire.
Greater than Games has suspended shipments due to a St. Louis County stay-at-home order in effect until at least April 22. In addition to handling its own games, Greater than Games also handles shipments for other companies, including Stonemaier Games, makers of Wingspan.
Japanime Games, which just last week was offering to send 50% of the sales of goods from its site to the local game store of the consumer’s choice (see “Japanime Games to Paypal 50% of Its Currently In-Stock Online Product Purchases to Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic”), has suspended shipments due to a stay-at-home order in Indiana, where its warehouse is located.
Fireside Games will delay the release of Stringamajig, the company announced.
