Old School Gamer Magazine - Canadian Subscription?

Postby Davester » Wed May 16, 2018 10:15 am

I've always wanted a Canadian subscription for Old School Gamer Magazine.
(I want a physical copy... I like to read in the only room in the house where I can get some privacy...)

In the past, I wanted to subscribe but they only offered mail subscriptions to the US. (The website used to say "international subscriptions coming soon...")

However, I received an email today about subscribing for only $30 with no additional shipping fees.
For sh!ts & giggles, I filled in the form and to my surprise, it allowed me to enter a Canadian address. (The online form automatically prepopulated to "Province" and "Postal Code"... sweet!)

So, I'm not sure if this is a mistake, oversight, I just got phished, or it's legit. I got an email that it went through.

Anyone else have luck with this?

The Chapters near me has carried it for years. So it has been available in Canada. I would say there is a good chance you will receive your magazine.

On second thought I may have the magazine confused with a different Retro game magazine from the UK
