Short version: CoN gets a little cash if you (or your family or anyone else!) buy any item from Amazon through the CoN site.
Long version: CoN on Amazon, more commonly known as AmaCoN, is CoN's connection to all the stuff you actually want to buy. It's not us selling you down the river for our own profit, it's just us providing the games, books, toys, music, et cetera in a manner that benefits us all, in association with Amazon.
CoN honestly costs a nice little bit of cash to operate. While the staff of the site enjoys providing all of our great content to you guys, and we write the checks every year with a smile, it never hurts to have a bit of extra money around to help pay the bills, fund new contests, buy new software for the site, things like that. So, we've partnered with Amazon to bring you their massive selection and great prices straight through the Caves of Narshe; in return, every little thing you buy tosses a little bit of cash back into our coffers.
So, here's what we can promise you with AmaCoN:
By now, you must be interested, right? No problem, it's easy. Just go to the AmaCoN main page. Remember, if you go to Amazon from any link on CoN or from a CoN staffer, CoN will get the credit for any purchases you make until you close your browser.
We've got a new tool for you to use. Have a public wish list at Amazon? Want to link to a single item in particular, but make sure CoN gets the credit? Fill in the fields in our new CYO (Create Your Own) form, and you can get a URL and HTML that you can share with anyone willing to buy something.

We maintain shops for the United States, the United Kingdom and European Union, and Canada. The US and UK shops will ship to many different countries, so you have several options to choose from.
Each game that CoN covers has a mini-store on that game's homepage. These stores have a small selection of items, usually specific to that game, that include game carts, discs, and cards, as well as strategy guides. There's a mini-store for each country on these pages, too. Use the site navigation to see these mini-stores on the homepage of each game.
Searching for anything at all using Amazon search boxes on the CoN site work too. Any items you buy after starting the search will be credited to CoN.

We know you're here because you want to help CoN earn a little money off things you want to buy anyway. So we want to make it as easy on you as possible. Keep these things in mind:
We know that buying through AmaCoN can require a couple extra steps, and we all really appreciate that you've chosen to do so. Feel free to let us know when you buy, and we'll thank you personally too. Finally, don't forget to tell your friends and family too; anyone can shop AmaCoN, not just CoN members!
