We're a small, family-based business based in Chandler's Ford, near Winchester, in Hampshire. We publish our own original games (under the brand Dice Maestro) as well as buy and sell vintage games. As a small business you can be assured that every order and every customer is important to us. This means every game well sell is meticuously checked, comprehensively described (using our tab system in the Store) and carefully packed so it reaches you in the same condition as it left us.
In Aprli 2012 we launched Retroactive, an online store and resources for vintage and sought-after games on our Dice Maestro site. Due to its success we are spinning off Retroactive as its own site.
There are many reasons why vintage games are proving so popular. Maybe you're after a particular game from your childhood and want to replay with your own children; or maybe you want an original game that has long gone out of print; or maybe you're a collector who sees a game from a bygone decade more like an artefact of our cultural history. For example, the generation of our grandparents or great grandparents would have played with this 1920s Bezique set by Thomas de la Rue; and this Halma game by HP Gibson and Son would have tested the wits of players when Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne; and this first edition of Waddington's travel game GO was published before Concorde even made its test flight.
Go retroactive and enjoy the cultural replay!
