Hi all,

The Games Cellar has an offer now for 50% off what appears to be all stock. Use coupon code BC01052014.

While this is a UK store, they do offer good shipping prices to USA.

This is no reflection on the sale, but I wonder if they're really going out of business this time?

1862 for ~$82 with shipping is a pretty good deal.

I didn't mean to cause any type of bait & switch situation. The prices, in my mind, are rather good as I was able to purchase 14 games for $220 dollars plus shipping to America (which was around $25). I just thought I'd pass the information on as I figured this was a pretty "hot deal".

I didn't see anything which was a "must have" for me. With the discount, some things were a bit cheaper, even taking the shipping into account (if you ordered enough).

If they had The Great Zimbabwe in stock, I'd have jumped on it, but they didn't, so I decided to pass...

I couldn't agree more.

Just as much a hot deal as anything at MM where it only offers a real savings if you're ordering $100 to get free shipping. (but is otherwise cheaper from Amazon or close)

Obviously the shipping kills a lot of these deals if you're only interested in a single title but if you're buying multiple games the shipping doesn't increase with every item added.

I went from 2 to 5 games in my cart and the shipping stayed 15.99 which made it increasingly more attractive the more I bought. In the end I wound up getting games for almost 50% off what it would cost me from anywhere else here in the US shipped.

With a number of titles from my want list in stock which aren't even available at major retailers stateside like Promised Land: 1250-587 BC and 1862: Railway Mania in the Eastern Counties this was a SUPER hot deal for me personally.

You didn't cause any bait and switch. Some posters have a long history of trying to moderate the hot deals section despite the fact that the REAL admins have REPEATEDELY asked them to refrain from doing so.

Either their search engine sucks or they don't have anything I want.

It seems a lot of small online stores would do themselves a great service by using better search engines.

That's not really fair. Didn't you know that deals which aren't American in origin and that do not provide significant immediate benefit to them are killing this forum? You can hardly click on a thread anymore without it bringing up some nonsense about games, pricing and places to engage in commerce.

I started to weed through their games and weren't finding them even going through them in alphabetical order. But yeah, I was looking at games on one site and they admitted that if a game is OOS, they don't even list it on their site until they have it in stock again. In other words, if it is OOS, you don't know if they carry it unless you contact them.

I just went to the Board and Card Games pages then selected view 100. When I started visiting other pages like "New", "Wargames", etc. it was all just dupes pulled from the main pages I'd already browsed.

Not saying the site doesn't suck. If something is out of stock you don't know that until you check your cart, and when you add to cart it takes you back to the top of the page which is annoying since you've got find your way back down to where you last were.

Still it only took a few minutes to browse the entire catalog and was well worth the trouble at least for me.

I'm getting Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space brand new shipped to my Texas door for $20. I'd say that's a pretty decent sale! Sure it'll probably take half a year to get it ("surface" shipping), but unless I want to spend $50+ I'm not going to get it anyway!

$30 shipped for Magnum Sal Muria expansion is a great deal, considering it's so hard to find.
