I was just browsing miniaturemarket and notice most things are $15. Do you think I should buy them? Will they ship?

Wow! This is either a major glitch or the biggest surprise sale ever.

My guess is a glitch. Not sure how they handle purchases during a glitch like this though.

Their deal of the day is $15 (not sure if that's also part of the bug or that's what caused it) but I was looking at their website before midnight and didn't see any issues. It wasn't until the deal of the day went up (which is at midnight Central time) that the bug showed up

Aw man! Had went on to check to the price on firefly and saw that it was 15$ and just thought I was snagging a deal and came here to post it. I didn't think to check other titles.

Definitely going to cancel everything, such is life.

I feel like San Juan (DOTD) for $15 makes sense (it's more than 50% off MSRP ($35)). Maybe this is what triggered it...

So you guys think it's okay to essentially be taking advantage of what is most obviously a glitch and steal business from a small business?

You guys are pretty cool people. Awesome, good job.

I don't think anyone is trying to take advantage here. I'm sure no one would start a riot if they cancelled the order and explained that the pricing was due to a glitch.

Everything normally over $15 is $15..most likely some odd bug.
I think it started at midnight when the deal of the day updates but that is just a guess

I wanted to make a legitimate order , but I think I will wait till this mess is cleared up :S They do not have to honor a mistake in pricing, they will most likely cancel the order , or worse yet , the prices might be wrong online and correct in there system when they put in the info for the sale you guys will be paying full price on your credit cards :S. Good luck guys.



P.S. I think I will call my order in on the phone tomorrow to make sure :S

looks stupid sexy, I would rather not take advantage of a good board game company. I couldn't resist taking a screen grab to send to my friends though lol.

hopefully they realize what is going on quickly so they don't have to much work to do later.

In for 1... cancellation.

Thought I'd stumbled across a super-secret sale or something. Hopefully they'll sort it out in the morning so I can go ahead and put in the order I was trying to put together tonight when this nuttiness happened. Watch the things I was going to buy go out of stock while waiting laugh

I'm in the same boat.

 


If these prices persist tomorrow morning, I might change my mind. I did send them a message to give them a heads up though.

It got me thinking, what if an OLGS did a $15 sale for 15 minutes on some random day? Limit, two items per customer. The sale is never announced...it just happens at some random and ungodly time.

I feel like they would at least announce that a sale would be happening. Otherwise their customers may be way too confused (as is now the case). If I knew some sort of 15 min where everything is $15 I would have at least placed an order. It would be interesting if an OLGS did this about once a month - definitely would increase traffic to their site, I think.

I placed my order before I saw this thread. All I was doing was checking my wishlist, which contained solely Heroscape stuff. So I see all of it marked at $15 and at first I think it's a glitch, then I think maybe just maybe they just want clear out their Heroscape stock. So I placed the order. I am 100% expecting cancellation obviously.

I shouldn't feel too bad if it goes through though, I mean what was MSRP on those booster packs?
