The Giant in the Playground Shop

Welcome to the Giant in the Playground Shop, which is less of an actual shop and more of a page where we can tell you where you can get stuff from other shops! That's because GITP products are available from a variety of different manufacturers and retailers, possibly including your local comic or game shop. To get directly to the store page for one of our direct merchandise partners, just click on one of the logos below. Or you can look below that for the product you're interested in, and we'll tell you where you can buy it.


Many GITP products are also available through your local gaming store. If you want to see them carrying OOTS books or games, and they're not, try asking the manager. Many stores are willing to order products if they know that they'll have buyers for them, so let them know! We're carried by all major gaming and comic book distributors across the globe, so check regularly to see if new products might be finding their way to your FLGS. And if you represent a game or hobby shop and can't figure out where to order GITP products in your area, just contact Impressions Game Distribution Services for assistance locating a local distributor.
