This and Urban Sprawl were the two I couldn't decide between. I was elated to discover that the sale was extended to your finalized P500 orders plus one! Needless to say, I bought both.

I had been waiting for the sale specifically to buy SPQR. My first taste of GBoH was earlier this year with Samurai and I had a blast. Shortly afterward I picked up Chandragupta, but so far have only managed a solo play of that game.

When I saw the +1 portion of the sale, I decided to also pick up: Unhappy King Charles!. I quite enjoy CDGs, so hopefully this one proves to be a winner for my main opponent and I.

I've been holding off on this for a while, but the price is now right. I am entitled to 5 purchases at the sale price, (this P500 thing really got it's claws into me) so I'm weighing up other options to get as well:

No Retreat
Unhappy King Charles
CnC Napoleonics (Ancients is sold out)

are my thoughts so far.

Planned to pick this one up if there was another fall sale by GMT...since there is, I did.

Also picked up the thicker tile and counter set for Dominant Species. At $10, it was much more palatable than at $20...

While I'm eligible for at least 3-4 more, I don't expect to pick up any others.

For some reason, I totally missed that this was a block game. Once I figured that out it went way up on my "want to play" list.

I also got some C3I back issues.

This ended up being the backup plan. I had intended to get The Great War in Europe: Deluxe Edition but it was out of stock by the time I was able to put an order in.

So after evaluating my options I slotted this one in in its place, and then continued with the original plan, which included 1914: Twilight in the East, Combat Commander: Europe, and Combat Commander: Mediterranean.

I had P500'ed the Labyrinth reprint, entitling me to 2 games at 50% off.

I am iffy on what I would like from GMT, but this one looked good. It seemed like something I could learn and teach and I know a few people I could get to play it with me.

I let a friend use the second discount for...

I've been intrigued by this one for a while, so at 50% off, it was an easy call. I also grabbed The Conquerors: Alexander the Great and the Simple GBoH rules for me, and a copy of Urban Sprawl for a buddy. I could have bought a 4th game for me (probably Dominant Species), however I had just put in an order for the new version of 1830: Railways & Robber Barons, so I figured I had spent enough money for one day.
