Important! - Please keep all discussion regarding this thread to the 1 Player Guild Hot Deals DISCUSSION Thread. I'd like to keep this hot deals thread open for current hot deals only.

I thought it might be a good idea to have a bulletin board where we could post timely information about any sales or temporary good deals on solitaire or solo playable games. Doesn't matter what nation the retailer is in; there is a good chance there are solo gamers nearby that may be interested.

I know we post comments about various sales in on the SGoYT geeklists and other threads, but hopefully this will reduce clutter on the 1 Player Guild forums and give everyone one easy place to find current good deals.

Intent and initial guidelines (pending any feedback):
d10-1 This is not a place to list items that you have for sale. The place to advertise games you are selling is on the 1 Player Guild Trading Post.
d10-2 This is a place to post links to items on a time sensitive sale from online retailers.
d10-3 Since most online retailers already have prices discounted off MSRP, please only post links to games that are on additional sale, such as bargain bins or the CSI Daily Deal.
d10-4 This is also a good place to post announcements for sales offered by publishers. Publishers such as GMT and Lock n Load Publishing have the occasional sale on multiple items.
d10-5 Please keep it to solitaire games or games that people play solo. If it's been listed on the SGoYT geeklists, be it true solitaire, co-op, or multiplayer then feel welcome to post about a sale.
d10-6 Also, please keep this clear of standard P250 or P500 discounts offered by the publishers. Those things are nearly always reduced. Plus, there are 100's of products on P500 systems out there. I think it's okay if a retailer is offering a P500 product pre-order at a price discounted from the publisher's P500 price.
d10-7 Please keep Kickstarter projects off this thread. Judy already has a thread for Kickstarter projects nearing the deadline here: Some solo-playable games with crowd-funded campaigns
d10-8 Please have the courtesy to delete your posts about sales once they have ended. No sense in having a thread filled with dozens of old sale announcements that are out of date. Ideally there will only be current sales on this list (or recently expired sales).
d10-9 Please include the location (nation, state/province, city) of the online retailer or local game store where the hot deal is occurring. Doing so will be appreciated by others (especially those in other nations).

Locations for retailers that commonly hold good sales:
1) Miniature Market is located in St. Louis, Missouri, USA
2) Cool Stuff Inc is located in Maitland, Florida, USA
3) Tanga is located in Chandler, Arizona, USA
4) Noble Knight is located in Janesville, Wisconsin, USA
5) NWS Online Gaming Store is located in Orlando, Florida, USA

Websites that provide consolidated boardgame prices from online retailers:
1) USA: http://www.boardgameprices.com/
2) UK/EU: http://boardgameprices.co.uk/

If you know of any other retailers that commonly hold good sales (beyond the normal discounted prices offered by OLGS) please GM me with their location information as above along with a website address and I'll sticky them to this post. Thanks!

I realize this may be a losing battle, but...

Please delete any of your posts not listing a current sale. See item d10-8 in the header above. I'd really like to keep this thread to pertinent comments only; that way the header comment isn't getting lost if the thread progresses to page 2.

For general comments & discussion please use the Discussion Thread.

Thanks!

You may commence throwing tomatoes and bring out the tar and feathers now!

http://www.camelcamelcamel.com tracks Amazon prices and will even give you an email if it gets below a certain level.

I also think Honey is a great web extension. It tells me right on the Amazon page if there is a cheaper option and what the price history has been. It also works with a bunch of other sites, tracking web coupons. Check it out:

For anyone who loves the card manipulation of Mage Knight this is something to look hard at. What a great deal for a game that offers so much.

Hope this is ok, not a game per say but (and I realize not "solo" but a lot of people have and play this game solo, including myself. )....

Any solo gamers out there interested to start painting but have been too scared to touch their own board game miniatures (like me):

I just grabbed this deal to get myself more motivated to start:

(Not-So-Bored Games) Viral Outbreak Miniatures - Perfect for Pandemic

40% off for $30. Comes out to $1 per miniature. Pretty good deal!
