Two things really put the nail in this game's coffin

1) It's a stockmarket game but market-game lovers wouldn't know that by the box art (even if it is a bull and bear)
2) Horrid rulebook. Really horrid. The game seems complicated and hard to follow. Worse, the market is such a tight design that do anything wrong and the game falls apart. With such a bad rulebook, many players manipulated the board state incorrectly and broke the market, meaning they played something the designer didn't intend and it left a bad taste in their mouth.

I never even read the rulebook when I owned this game. Nay, I just printed out this: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/90722/black-friday-rules-...

And voila, a straightforward game that's actually ingenious and fun. My one regret was how it didn't have enough player interaction for me (I like trading and negotiation in my market games). It plays in less than 2 hours, has beautiful artwork and presentation, and even plays well with 2p (how many market games can you say that about?).

A shame this game didn't get more love.

Only one time in my 13 Christmas Seasons of running Time Well Spent Games did I open my warehouse for a local/walk in only “Black Friday Sale.” I did this on Friday, November 28th, 2014. And while this sale was easily my largest single day sales in numbers and dollars, I would never do this again for several reasons.

Before I get to the reasons, let me first talk about the sale. I was running a sale on the website which local customers could take advantage of as well. I had 20+ games on a very large percentage discount each day (every day 5 games would be removed from the sale and 5 new games would be added.) It was sort of a “game” wondering which games would remain, so the idea being if you liked a game that was on the sale you better get it today as it may go off the sale tomorrow.

But the sale that was going on for local customers on Black Friday was 15% off everything in the store. This pretty much put most of my items in the store at around 40% off of MSRP as most of my games were marked at 30% off MSRP as my everyday price. If a local customer bought one of the 20+ games that were on sale on the website, they would get another 15% off on that game, making it a super-sweet deal.

As an added bonus, I also had about 300 used games that my friend Don Weed gave me to give away.

He recently had moved to North Carolina and was not going to take a large portion of games that he purchased in thrift stores over the years. So each customer that came in the door HAD to take a game or two from the large boxes of used games I had lined up in the warehouse.

I had some other miscellaneous items on some tables that I was giving away or “practically” giving away.







Also, I had brought in some dexterity games from my own collection for customers to mess around with while they were there. I had Crokinole, Le Passe-Trappe, Tumblin’ Dice, and Weykick Fussball set up on tables around the warehouse area (mainly where the ambulances would be parked in the evening.)

I thought between my son Wesley and I that we would be able to handle the local customers that would come into the warehouse that day. He would help customers in the warehouse, and I would get people checked out and processed. But, I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of customers that would be there that day. Several times through out the day there were as many as 20 customers walking around the warehouse. And though my warehouse is set up nicely, the isles were not big enough to handle this many people searching and looking for games.

Fortunately, I had 2 friends (Bruce Pincus and Eric Talley)

that were at the sale that day that ended up helping Wesley. They also helped the customers in the warehouse by making recommendations and helping them find games. I think both of them were there for 3 or more hours. They were life-savers in keeping things slightly below chaotic in the warehouse.

The big bottleneck in the whole operation, though, was getting people checked out with their purchases (basically what I was doing all day). My store has never been set up like a retail store, so I don’t have a scanner or anything like you would see when checking out of a Target, Walmart, or any brick and mortar store. So here is how it worked. The customer would come into my office with their games, we would then enter an order on my computer as if you were doing this at home. Depending on how many games a customer bought it could be a 5 to 15 minute process to complete the transaction. The line to check out was getting to be 7 or 8 deep. It was not pretty at all. I started asking any customer who had a smart phone (that was in line) if they could enter their order on their phone and when it was their turn to checkout, I would find their order and quickly process a credit card transaction. That saved some time. Also, for many of my regular customers, if they entered the order online, I would go ahead and let them leave and I would process their order that evening after the sale was over.

I had to manually adjust the prices by 15%, which made the process slower as well, since my website did not have this capability.

Though I think most people were patient and ok with waiting since they were getting a great price on games, and I would guess most people would rate the experience as a bit frustrating. I was a bit frustrated myself and must have apologized dozens of times throughout the day to my customers.

Even with this being by far my largest single day dollar amount in sales, there were just too many other “things” that made this a day that I would not want to repeat.

The Day of Black Friday (which was actually more of a Wednesday thing)



The days leading up to this moment had been fraught with carnage. I thought I saw the ugly face of bargain hunting on Tabletop Day but I was mistaken. This was a beast of another kind. Miniature Market began the bloodbath a few days early. Within hours their site had been ransacked and thrown upon the pyre. When all was said and done there was little left but scraps. Alas I had missed the kill by but a few hours, that was enough. All of my hopes clung to Cardhaus and Cool Stuff. They would be either the harbinger of my board game salvation or the last nails in my cardboard coffin.



High noon (Eastern Standard Time) approached. A starting pistol raised high on Cardhaus’ sale-a-palooza. I readied my cart with trembling hands. The clock ticked over to twelve, the page refreshed and in that cart I saw such wonders, such savings. My eyes fluttered, in a flash my visa flew from its holster. In seconds, the digits were punched and the order gone through.



My inboxed pinged in exaltation as the confirmation number landed. I exited the cardhaus website like an action hero from an exploding building as the site struggled under the weight of tens of thousands of gamers. I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking black friday was finished with me but how wrong I was.



Actual Black Friday.

I had long eyed the curios of sites like The Broken Token, Insert here, Game Trayz and Daedalus Productions. Their business? Custom inserts for games too unwieldy to manage with baggies alone. I could never bring myself to purchase them for their price often equaled or surpassed the games themselves. What manner of madness drove me to the Broken Token 20% off sale, I know not, but again my visa flew and not for the last time. Ping chirped my inbox.



Game Trayz had an insane 50% off sale on custom stonemaier resource pieces. You know the ones. The ridiculously deluxe pieces designed to pimp out euro cubes the world over. Despite knowing that I owned no games with such resource cubes, the thought that some day I might was enough. Ping, my inbox seemed to mock me now.
