I didn't see this posted anywhere. Not sure how good this will be for most, but if you're looking to get into Railways of the World, it's a nice deal!
There are several arrangements with prices from $75 to about $100. Shipping is free for all orders over $75.

Here is what I got for $90 shipped:

Railways of the World
Railways of Great Britain expansion
Masters gallery (Knizia lighter card game version of modern art card game)
Venture (classic Sid Sackson card game)
What's my word (well regarded 2 player word game)
Yin Yang (Knizia trick taking game)

What I wanted was Railways and the expansion, which even at online discount prices would have run me about $75. So getting 4 other games, which sell for about $15 each normally, for only $15 more seemed very nice.

This is a great deal. If I didn't already own so many of those games, I'd be on this.

Thanks, I'll check out that thread. But this is a "variety sale," not really one particular game, so I figure one mostly needs to know that eagle games is running a sale. I did include the price I paid, $90, but the price does depend on which bundle you pick. For me, the $90 bundle was a bargain, as I was going to pay $75 plus for Railways and an expansion.

Yeah despite being a forum to help people get games, it's pretty easy to pick up a lot of flack trying to post anything in here. Bravo for your contribution!

Huh. This is a pretty clever way for them to offload some junk.

Well, I thought I had mined all the gaming goodness out of this sale, but I ended up taking a second dip, this time in bundle #4. I've really been wanting to get FantastiQa, and I wanted another Railroads expansion. Here's what I got the second time around, for $75 shipped. (I am hereby done with this sale, lest the wife kills me).

Fantastiqa Rucksack Edition (coolstuff is the only other place I found it, and at the full $40 retail)

Railways of Europe (An expansion I really wanted)

Incan Gold (I already have this, but just the gems are worth it, or give it as a gift. Great game.)

Monad (Very odd Sid Sackson game that I want to try)

Why Did the Chicken? (Don't care for party games, but at least this one allows for creativity, and there was nothing else I wanted in this tier.)

Fzzzt! Tin Box Edition (I'm excited about this one. Several reviewers (Joel Eddy, Tom Vasel, Ender) all were very surprised by how much fun it is. Has deck building and very neat blind bidding.

Just Fantastiqa and railways europe would have cost me about $62 after my coolstuff discount, so seemed like it's worth the risk to try the other games.

That was exactly my first response. I was thinking, man, everything after the first 2 tiers is junk. But upon closer inspection, there's at least 1 diamond in the rough for every category. Though I don't know if it'd be worth it for someone not interested in the Railways of the World Series. Those are the major value adders.
