All of our board games are available in different finishes or colour combinations so please feel free to get in touch and design your board.
At Geoffrey Parker, we’re doing everything we can to protect our staff during this challenging time. We’re now working with a skeleton team of staff to ensure safe social distancing. This does mean we’re no longer manning our phone lines but we can be contacted via email.
The shipping of our items will take a little longer as we will be keeping finished products in isolation for a minimum of 48 hours after our quality control check before they are shipped. This is to ensure once boxed up, your item it has been isolated for a minimum of 72 hours.
