Ground Zero which is a local Game-Comic Book store with 2 locations in the Omaha area had 50% off ALL Board and Card games except for MTG on Black Friday. They opened at 7am and my buddy and I arrived about 6:45am. They opened the doors about 6:50 and 2 guys got in the store before us. All of their games are usually priced at MSRP, so 50% off is a huge bargain.

I had scoped out what they had in stock on Wednesday so I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to grab right when I got in the store.

The first game I grabbed was Escape: The Curse of the Temple. This game is very good at MSRP but at $25, it is a steal.

This is a game I had wanted since I saw it at GenCon. I played a 10 minute demo there and thought it was alot of fun. The $89.99 price tag was just too much for me. They only had one copy in the store and it quickly went in my arms. For $45 this game deserves a place in my collection.

My buddy and I each picked up 2nd copies of the Core Set for deck building. This is a great game and I only see it getting better as the expansions are released. Tough to pass up at $20. Heck, this game is so good that it is tough to pass up at MSRP.

We have Dixit 1 and 2 and my family really enjoys it so I picked this up for them. $16 is much lower than what I have seen it for in local Department stores.

I have played this several times at game nights and parties and it is a nice, quick filler. I also picked up the King of Tokyo: Power Up! expansion. This set may end up as a gift for some lucky person.

I got both of these for $25.

My buddy and I both really like this game and decided at $7.50 each, it was time to really build up our fleets and grabbed several expansions. We got a few Tie Advanced, Y-Wing, X-Wing, and Tie Fighters. Now we have enough ships for some huge 200 point battles.

met me at the store and he was hoping to complete his Dominion collection, get some more Star Wars ships and pick up some new games to surpriose his 4 boys with. He left the store with 2 boxes of games including:

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game - I am so glad HE bought this because I have really wanted to try it, but didnt know if it would get much play at my house. He got it for $25, which I think is a steal.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple - He snatched the 2nd copy of this and was looking forward to giving it to his boys as an early present. Lucky kids.

Dominion: Intrigue, Dominion: Hinterlands, Dominion: Seaside, rounded out his Dominion collection. All 3 of those for $60 is another great bargain.

Android: Netrunner - He saw me pick up a copy of this and said, "Why are you getting a 2nd copy?" I told him that there were several cards that I wanted to have 3 of for my deck building and he immediately grabbed his own 2nd copy. At $20 a set, we even talked about splitting a 3rd copy, but at that point I had no idea how I was going to sneak all this stuff into the houseshake

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game - For every one expansion ship that I bought, he purchased at least 2 with the reasing being that we would never find them on sale for $7.50 anywhere else. Hard to argue with that logic.

He may have picked a few smaller card games that I cant remember what they were. He got a pretty good haul.

I also did my Black Friday shopping at both Ground Zero locations, actually! I had a printed off copy of my CoolStuffInc. wishlist, and found that the 50% off MSRP was cheaper than even CSI, even factoring in their own Black Friday discount. I found 5 games that I was able to cross off my Christmas list and a few that were too good to pass up.

Clans for $5, Mage Wars for $30, and the Star Trek: Fleet Captains expansion at $25 were some of the better deals I grabbed.
