Games For Sale - Pickup Only CBD or Altona

I figured I'd clear some games out. As you can tell from the play count, I am playing things not as much as they deserve. Moved to BGG, prices dropped a bit too. Wrath of Ashardalon $30 (Played three times) SOLD (Stompy/Paul) Lords of Waterdeep $30 (Played once) SOLD (MooseHead) Age of Industry $25 ...

Big W Sale - Telestrations

Possibly not everyone was looking for a copy of this as I was, but having nearly ordered it from afar a couple of times I was surprised to find it in the latest Big W catalogue: http://www.bigw.com.au/toys/board-games-puzzles/bpnBIGW_0000000307705/telestrations Doesn't appear to be any cheaper as a ...

Re: Star Trek: Fleet Captains - Anyone have this?

I have a copy, played it twice so far (once with Doug which then prompted him to sell his copy...I think it went well). I personally quite like it. I've only played it four players but it goes a little too long with four if anyone is slow, our session this last weekend went for three hours. Doug and...

Re: AFL Dreamteam

My team is locked and loaded, pending any late changes by sheeds. Should be a tricky season with heavy player rotations, the byes and a new team. Looking forward to it. Good luck all.

Re: AFL Dreamteam

I'm in. Now I have to stop tweaking my squad every 3 hours based on unsubstantiated rumours and gut feels.

Re: Risk Legacy

I don't know if they still have copies but when I went into Classic Comics a couple of weeks ago there were two copies on the shelf. I haven't seen them cycle through the ebay store, so they could be either sold or not listed yet. I think they were listed at $65ish.

Quite a few games at 20% off at Classic Comics. I might have to poke my nose in there in the next week.

Re: Earth Reborn?

Well if I decide to hock my copy I'll give you a heads up in case you haven't talked yourself out of it yet. I think I'll start exploring the Vlaada back catalogue because that length of game, the complexity and the pure fun factor seems to fit my schedule more. I clearly have more money than sense,...

Re: Earth Reborn?

Very interesting game. I bought this game, and worked hard to get it to the table. I played four sessions and the first five missions of the 3/4 player campaigns. Each session was a month apart. All the players were quite bright though not all board gamers prior. I mention the above because this is ...

Re: Bargain Watch

Milsims had this game on special during their big easter sale, now it seems that Magestorm is priced to clear again on their site. It is $66 down from near $90 on arrival. Almost worth it just for using the pieces as toys :) http://milsims.com.au/node/119215 Actually while I was perusing their overs...

Re: Bargain Watch

Popped into my comic shop, noticed they had Mystery of the Abbey on special for $49. No idea about the game but it seems like a good price. They also had Tribune on special but I can't remember if it was $49 or $59 dollars. I managed to avoid buying the siren that is Lords of Vegas...I suspect I won...

If that is the Sid Miers (sp?) Civ one I'll grab that for a mate, thanks.

Re: Power Grid Russia special auction rules

Thanks for this, I have passed it on to our rules guy. I assume that this is the exact rule that led to my last place when we played this map...or it could have been the fact that the tundra's don't hold two power plant operators well enough...or I just played like crap. I'll go with the former.

Re: Bargain Watch

Glad to hear. I am waiting for Troyes to make my order, and am still very much tossing up on Mansions of Madness. Spending far too much time on BGG trying to talk myself out of all the awesome games out there.
