Welcome...to my Shed!
Microbadge: I love Europe!Microbadge: 5 Games for Doomsday fanMicrobadge: Talk Talk fanMicrobadge: Citizenship Recognition - Level VI -  Is six any more shiny? ... Well, it's one shinier isn't it? ... Okay, why don't you just make five a bit more shiny and then that would be the most shiny? ... Because these go to six.Microbadge: Pun microbadges are the wurst!
Black Friday is, perhaps, the greatest example of FOMO to date: an exercise in mass hysteria whereby millions are convinced to spend money they didn't originally intend/couldn't afford to spend on stuff for which they have no immediate need because they think they're getting a bargain.

Supply where there is no original demand that, by the very act of supplying now invokes an illusory demand: you couldn't make it up. Physical confrontation, online abuse: no-one needs a flat-screen TV that much.

So, just for today, I am raising the 'online' prices of all of the games in The Museum of Board Games' Gift Shop in protest against this Lemming-like commercial con:
Formula OviNE - £10 plus PnP (originally £5)
Atlantic Crossing - £10 plus PnP (originally £5)
Island Racing - £20 plus PnP (originally £10)
Race The Rails - £30 plus PnP (originally £15)
Ivor the Engine - £20 plus PnP (originally £10)
Snowdonia: Deluxe Master Set - £150 plus PnP (originally £75)

Roll-away! Roll-away! Don't get 'em while they're hot!*
