That seems like an amazing deal. 10 Bags with shipping to the UK for about £13..... surely it'll cost them more than that to ship them?

Put an order in anyway and I'm gathering from here it's not too good to be true. How often do they do deals like this?

All the time, every few months at most, if not weeks, shipped from China. The quality however if you upload decent images is very good.

Last one was a couple months ago maybe? It's an excellent deal, bags seem pretty decent and the price is fantastic. I assume they break even at best on this, or it's a loss leader.

Any tips what size of bag is good for what?

For example, for a pack of 100 odd cards, would a large do the job?

Am toying with the idea of smash up faction packs (20 cards). What size would you recommend?

The sizes are listed on the site. A large has way more space than you need for just 100 cards.

The deal is actually for 10 of anything on the list or a mixture of any totalling 10.

You can use all the designs on the Geeklist. Just make sure you are logged in and add them to your cart.

You can order anything from that list. I added a couple of stamps, too.

Yes. I noticed that if it doesn't work correctly but behaves erratically, it starts working again after you cleared your browser cache.

Also, I found a Google calendar where apparently all the current, past and future Artscow coupon codes are listed, with details about them if you click on the entry. That "10 for $20" deal is apparently recurring often.

Pretty awesome! I went and tossed in some bags in my basket, and came up to 27 of them
Was hard to take out 17 but hopefully there will be another of these bargains soonish.

It has no quantity limit. But if you want to order 20 pieces, I'd suggest you do it in two orders of 10, as these will definitely not have any customs fees to be paid for them. And the shipping is free, anyway, so no need to bundle.

Dang!
Too late, but very true.
However it will be in an envelope I assume so it should go through anyways.

Worked my way through the excellent geek list and found 18.

Trawled back through again to make up the 20.

I'm still in my first year of the hobby.

There always seems to be new ways to spend money!

I got 20 last time the offer was run. Still managed to pick up 13 *essential* new bags for games this time round. Customised a few fridge magnets, stamps and made some "Key-games" themed coasters to fill it up to 20 again. Seems to go through customs okay at that level.

Do share! Not just these 13 but also any from the last order you feel were equally "essential".

I've been particularly interested in those games where bags are truly an asset to gameplay, set up or breakdown etc. rather than just an esthetic upgrade.

Okay, well, the ones that really help play are as follows (mostly by speeding up setup):

Bags for tiles in The Castles of Burgundy - everyone can grab a bag, help refill the board at the end of a year. Really quick, great to shuffle them in, and super easy to pack up at the end of the game too.

I prefer drawing from a bag for chits than stacking tiles - eg Cable Car, Hawaii, War of the Ring (Second Edition) etc. Massively speeds up setup if you can just open the box, get bits out like board and player meeples, and then start playing.

Shuffling Keyflower tiles is hard to do while not looking at them (they are printed on both sides). I got some seasonal bags from the geeklist in the top comment, so you can just put the tiles in, and draw randomly very easily.

Oh, and I got three bags for Glass Road as well, for the three types of buildings. Big setup speed up there.

Other bags were just cosmetic, like I themed a few bags for the games to replace the generic one they come with eg Reef Encounter, Colonialism, etc
