I just revisited the games that were at 50% off a couple of weeks ago on Amazon. While most games have gone back to regular price, some are still 50% and some are EVEN CHEAPER!. I just ordered Bean Trader for 15.99, Mammoth Hunters for 15.99 and The Reef for 11.99.
And La Strada, which I had gotten for 19.99, is now only 15.99! And free shipping over $25!
For rails games fans, you can pick up British Rails for 15.99, Russian Rails 15.99, Lunar Rails 15.99 or Nippon Rails for 9.99.
Other deals: Joan of Arc 19.99, LOTR The Duel 9.99.

I'm not getting anything but this is all I saw that even remotely tempted me.

Dancing Dice $9.99 (thoughthammer $17) get it for 36 dice only and components if you don't mind footprints for the pips.
]

Turn the Tide $7.49 (thougthammer $9.10) already have this good filler

Detroit-Cleveland Grand Prix $9.99 (thoughthammer $17.50)

That was me.

Also picked up The Reef to fill things out for free shipping.

I got Street Car, Turn the Tide, Mall World, King Me! and The Reef for $55. I also signed up for an amazon card for $30 off! I didn't see Dancing Dice, or I would have gotten that.

Re: 60% off Bean Trader,Mammoth Hunters,The Reef+more @Amazo
what a weird mix of stuff, some of them are barely discounted. Picked up Message to the Czar $11.99, Grand Alchemist $15.99 I also picked up a couple games I saw at Gen Con a couple years ago - Peaceful Resistance for $1.99 and Twistgammon for $3.99. I think these were originally $25 or $30. you can't get too much more obscure than that

Picked up British Rails and Nippon Rails (sadly, Lunar Rails wasn't coming up on sale).

Thanks for the heads up on the promotion!

Darn, I already got Mammoth Hunters in the Amazon sale for $19.99, can't believe they lowered it even more! Ah well, at least I've already gotten to play it twice, and am enjoying it. I'm a sucker for the Moon/Weissblum games it would appear, heh.

I can't bring myself to buy a game rated at "6" unless Tom Vasel tells me to.

Yeah, I'm with you. I don't necessarily rely on Vasel, but I've read reviews on most of those games and thought, "It sounds moderately fun, but wouldn't my group rather play something we would enjoy more?"

In other words, just because a game is cheap doesn't mean it's worth buying and devoting time to playing. I passed on a lot of the games with a "6" or less.

Although in all fairness, MH looks like a game that has a low score because people are divided on it. I shall have to do a geekbuddy analysis. I wish I could keep several geekbuddy profiles--one filled with family gamers, another with PowerGridders, etc.

Actually, I have a lot of games which are rated at "6" which I like very much. (Bootleggers comes to mind.)

I only use the ratings as a guideline, and I read the reviews to see if it is a type of game I would like.

I've played Mammoth Hunters before, and I thought it was a pretty decent game. Don't like it enough to buy it, but I wouldn't mind playing it again.

Grand Prix for $9.99? That's a lot like the coveted Daytona 500 game from Kramer.

The Grand Prix game is now only $7.50, along with some other games that were $9.99 earlier today. Knizia's Poison is $7.49. British Rails and Russian Rails have also been reduced even more, I think to $11.99 or so.

I had to thrown in a SNL Best of Alec Baldwin DVD for good measure, just to keep my leisure time spent in a well-rounded way.

[q="ced1106"]fwiw, The games are sold *through* Amazon by Vintage Sports Cards Inc. Check the third-party fine print for details.

It says on the product page "ships from and sold by Amazon". Kind of weird that it shows that company instead of "Rio Grande Games" for example though

What I think happened is that Vintage Sports Cards Inc wanted to get out of the boardgame business and sold their inventory to Amazon.
