False Advertising - Knock-Off Product Sent Instead
on December 27, 2012
I'm so upset over this purchase! I bought what I thought (and what was advertised in the Amazon description) as the Blokus Classics Game by Mattel. It shipped promptly and because I buy so many things on amazon and rarely have issues, I didn't open it up and went ahead and wrapped it up for Christmas (three or so weeks before the holiday). Imagine our surprise and utter disappointment when we unwrapped this gift on Christmas morning and it was actually a game called "Family Strategy Game" manufactured in China with a flimsy, cheap gameboard, instructions ONLY in Chinese and clearly is a knock-off brand of the Blokus game (plus, it is missing an entire set of colored pieces). I am so angry that what was clearly shown as the REAL Blokus Game in the Amazon description was filled and sent with a cheap, generic game. Furthermore, after I contacted Amazon for a return, I received an email that I could return the game but I would have to cover the cost of return shipping, which I found out would be about half the cost of what I paid. I have had really great experiences with Amazon in the past, but this particular Amazon seller should be ashamed to be selling something under false pretenses. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER! If I were you, I wouldn't risk getting a cheap imitation.
