Hey,
I live in New Berlin, Wisconsin and one of our local stores is getting out of boardgames. They are running a 50% off sale on whatever they have. It's mostly one of each title but they have 100 or so. Not great titles but at half off its not bad. They also have a web site, www.blufroggames.com, not very good set up, but they are posting the sale on there as well. Just thought some one might want to check it out.

Thanks for the heads-up! Just ordered E&T and Mexica! Shaved about twenty bucks off my next ThoughtHammer purchase. And BlueFrog's ground shipping is quite reasonable!

Cool, thanks for the link. I just ordered four games from them that were on my "wait for a good opportunity" list (Aladdin's Dragons, Tongiaki, Emerald, Carolus Magnus). I hope they still have them though

Sweet! No one else mentioned Magna Grecia, so maybe I'll still be able to get it. Oh, and in case anyone else was holding out for that ultra-rare copy of King of the Beasts, sorry, I nabbed it.

Oh, and my shipping was only $5. You can't beat that*.


*Well, I guess you COULD. It's a figure of speech, you pedants.

Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage AND Roads n' Boats! I'm in heaven!

Just kidding.

Though I did pick up Mississippi Queen, Samurai, and Alhambra. Thanks so much for the heads up!

Ditto. Justifying $31.50 to my wife will be a lot easier than justifying $131.50 (which I could have spent, easily).

Just to warn everyone - I tried to order some things from them, and received an e-mail that two were out of stock. I called to check about this, and discovered that due to their Yahoo shopping system, I had to resubmit the order for the remaining items - he was NOT able to just process it for the remaining stuff, and the items I had requested were not saved for me in any way. By the time I called another one that was on my order was gone. cry

So if you try to order from them and get an out-of-stock e-mail, resubmit quickly.

Really sucks that he couldn't process the rest of your order. That's just basic business...

True, but the retailer is tied to the system Yahoo! uses, and has no control over the policies set for that system.

Regardless, that does suck.

Argh! I had E&T and had to leave for a social engagement! 2 minutes was all I needed to enter my info! I still got Attika, so it's not all bad....

Thanks for the tip! Couldn't you have just posted it 5 minutes earlier though?

ps. I'm sorry to hear their getting out of the BG business. It's a loss for all of us.

Bummer. My whole order's probably down the tubes then. I placed my order, worked outside a few hours (so I missed Paul's reply telling me Samurai was already gone) and now they are closed. Ah, well.

Well, I didn't receive a confimation email (which I requested), or one saying that the games were out of stock. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they shipped out, and hope for the best.

Earlier today I grabbed Hansa for $15. Thanks for the heads up. Would have gotten a couple more but I'm supposed to be on a buying hiatus!
