Thanks for that info, makes me wish I didn't already have Vegas Showdown, that's a great price. I was already thinking about getting Winner's Circle, I'll have a look there.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Carolus Magnus is a good game, best with 2 or 3 players. Does indeed have lots of wooden cubes

I believe this is out of print (see http://riograndegames.com/allgames.html), so is definitely a good price (if I didn't already own it, having paid much more than that).

Medici $14.99

This appeasrs to be the prior Rio Grande Games version with the HORRIBLE graphics... which makes it hard to play because it's hard to read the numbers on the cards, or to match the cards with the corresponding pyramid on the board.

The reprint is currently scheduled to be released in January for just about $6 more and the promise is that it will have much better graphics.

Great prices, I was all set with a $58 order with TTR: Marklin, Loco, Nexus Ops and Vegas Showdown. Then it told me shipping would be $33!

Not sure if others are getting the high shipping costs, but this ends up making the price equivalent to other online retailers. Still good, but not as amazing as I had hoped.

Ah, well.

These are the Caesars Palace Metal Dice I got for $4.98...now they're $2.99 + 4.49 shipping. I'm gonna try giving one each on tumblin dice as these are pure bomb dice...heavy as heck.



Also I was really happy for the $4.98 Caesars Palace BlackJact Set that came with a Dealer's Shoe I got as I saw it selling for $100 online. Now it's $29.99 on amazon tosyfortoday. I'll use it for all my card games to deal out cards.

edit 3: ok I called it a shoehorn....looked on the box and it says Dealer's Shoe...ok whatever it's called...I've never gambled so don't know all these terms...what an ignorant fool I am.

Was about to get Robo Rally but they jacked up their shipping charges again. Seems like it's cat and mouse.

Items: $24.99
Shipping & Handling: $8.49

Total Before Tax: $33.48

OK thoughthammer is $35 so no need to jump on this one...not sure if I really wanted it anyway. Just checked again and tumblin dice is $4.49 and this game is $8.49 that makes no sense. Weird stuff.

Shipping is like $4.50 per item, + 50 cents per pound. It's calculated using the data in Amazon's database, which includes not only an item weight, but a shipping weight as well. I ordered Niagara, which must ship in a steel box, apparently (weight: 3.5 lbs, shipping weight: 10.0 lbs). I actually contacted Amazon about it (because it's really their problem, the same data shows up for any seller of this item, and Amazon automatically uses that number to calculate and charge for shipping), and they told me I should really contact the seller, but to make it up to me, they're giving me $5 off my next Amazon order.

At any rate, I don't believe that the store has changed it's shipping rates.
-Zach

EDIT: Actually, I looked it up, shipping rates are the same as they ever were.

Amazon takes a huge commission for items sold by these outside vendors, so to make it up to them, they collect from the buyer a shipping fee for every single item regardless of how many you buy in a single order from the same vendor, and send that shipping money to the vendor who considers it part of their profit since of course the shipping is usually more than what is needed. If you ordered multiple games in a single order, they'll probably come in a single shipment at a cost much lower than what you paid.

I don't know if this was just because I placed a large order, but they refunded some of the shipping cost to me. I ordered about 8 games and the shipping was over $40. When I got an email confirming shipment, I wrote back and asked if they would combine shipping on multiple-game orders. They said if I would email them with the order info when I placed a multi-game order, they would charge me the highest shipping cost of the games purchased, plus $1 for each additional game. Then they refunded the overage to my Amazon account.

So, I think you'd still have to pay for it first, since Amazon automatically adds shipping to each game, but then ToysforToday will probably refund it if you email and ask them to.

Give it a shot--with the reduced shipping, these are some great deals!

Did anyone receive their copy of Cluzzle from Toysfortoday yet?? Just wondering how long it takes. Also, do you think they'll thrown in a small game if you just buy one game, or do they only do that with larger orders??

I don't know about Cluzzle, but I'm expecting my copy of Winner's Circle today, according to the FedEx tracking. I placed my order on 11/3, and the note from Toys for Today was that it had shipped out on 11/6 (Monday).

My order was pretty fast. I ordered Niagara and they shipped it the next day, and it arrived the day after that. Granted, I only live about 20-30 miles from them, so that's probably why it was so fast.

They did include a free game in mine...grand total around $30 after shipping.

Hope that helps!
