Huge sale going on for ALL Battlelore stuff at FFG website, it is part of their holiday sale.

Not sure if this indicates that Battlelore is indeed over, but I still hold out hope for the Elves expansion

My hunch is that it does mean the end, the FFG holiday sale does tend to look like 'where games go to die.'

Sad times, especially as I can't even take advantage of the sale to pick up the undead, thanks to the stupid Atlantic.

Off-topic, check out that eight page list of board games, some real bargains to be had!

Just logged on to post the same info, most items are at 1/3 of the original price.

I think this is a cleanup of the inventory, and the end of BattleLore

This is truly incredible. Battlelore is one of the best games in my collection, and there's nothing else like it.

How in the world could such an amazing game not succeed? It's accessible, deep, repayable, expandable, beautiful, quick-moving, fun--everything I want in a game. What is happening?

Somehow, someway, this is Trump's fault.

This is clearly then end for the game, it seems - those are closeout prices. A great time to pick up a great game!

I'm sad. I'm trying to keep myself from falling into the "game is dead" trap. I mean, I still have the game and it's still gonna play just fine. I don't need the game to be on shelves at the store in order to keep enjoying it.

But still, I can't help but feel a stronger pull toward RuneWars if BattleLore is really dead. I guess I'm hopeless. shake

On the bright side some lucky buggers are going to get an awesome game for low low price.

Honestly, if the Runewars game is solid (which it really looks like it will be) I wont have too many issues transitioning over to that game. I am hoping that games gets enough support for multiple factions.

I really enjoyed painting Battlelore. To be honest, I have a lot left to paint still.

I agree. I suppose that it hasn't sold very well, I can only imagine that these types of games are expensive to produce.

Battlelore 2e core box certainly feels generous if we ignore the dice Grumble grumble... I'm generally really weary of FFG's way to do expansions, it's probably the main reason I'm keeping my hands off Imperial Assault. Yet I've felt that the army packs for this game are great value that don't pinch my pennies as a consumer.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if this sold less for smaller margins than Netrunner packs and Imperial Assault singles.

Yep FFG killing another great game. No elves or anything else will be released. Kinda suspected this would happen after no announcements after origins or any of the big gaming events.

Yep great deals for BL2 expansions if you don't have them...

You think they killed a game for no reason? It's clearly not selling so blame the customers not the company.

Does anyone find it funny that the 1st edition, which was killed by FFG, will likely be more complete than the 2nd edition?
The thought was that the 2nd edition would have many more levels races and be more complete when it was originally released.

FFG will likely release a Battlelore 3rd edition using the Star Wars franchise in 2017... only to kill it 2 years later.

Is there a reason to get two of each Undead? Or will one of each give a comparable army to those in the base game (plus reinforcement pack)?

Well, at least it greatly lowered the value of my BL2 stuff for possible trades. Awesome!

Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Wow, John. I so wish you lived closer so that we could play. I've been wanting to dive into this forever, but now I can't bring myself to do it if its not going to get more variety. That was what always held me back. I have the first edition and kept waiting for more races that never came and now its happening again.

Yeah, for sure. I actually sold my first edition just a few months ago. Between the 3 armies, custom lore decks (as opposed to one common lore deck for 1st ed) and the varied set up options where each player provides half the battlefield I feel as though there is enough variety.

I'll just put it on my shelf next to all the Warhammer Diskwars stuff I already don't play with

If we do another gaming weekend at my place this year, you'll have to arrive a little early and bring it.
