I'll be driving from Nashville to Milwaukee again next weekend. If anyone happens to see anything good at one of the stores near I-294, I'd appreciate it if they posted here. I'm especially interested in the Civil War games.

call the oakbrook terrace savers when you are headed through and ask if they still have them.

Wondering if we'll see these up on amazon for nothing again.

The funny part is that he seemed to lose track of the shift key altogether in the main post. Maybe he used up his daily allotment of caps in the title.

Five Points: Gangs of New York is a pretty solid $5 impulse get. I've enjoyed my plays of it.

Can confirm this as well.

Saw Ablaze, Zen Garden, Steam Map and Asgard Chosen at a few Uniques within the city.

Some for $1 a piece!!! I paid $4 like a sucker for my Zen Garden. I somehow passed on Ablaze for 50 cents [50% off]. Should of bought the lot and sold them for like 8-10 bucks a piece on amazon.

Figured that was too much trouble to go through for a few bucks of profit.

You figured right.

I'd nab the steam expansion in a heartbeat at that price. Bummer.

This post has neither a game title, location or price.

In fact it has no hot deal whatsoever and thus has no place in this forum at all.

There is a Complaints forum where posts like this belong.

That is where your audience for this sort of thing resides.

IMHO...YMMV.

I honestly didn't even "hear" the caps lock being on until it was brought to my attention by this post. I must be going deaf...or blind.

Thanks, Eric. I was unaware of Savers, but Jon filled me in. We'll definitely check these stores out when in the western burbs.

It's about 1560 miles round trip from where I live to Schaumburg IL. If I get in my car now and drive there it will cost ~$150 in gas, plus $50 ($5 each, right?) for all of those games for a total of $200 (about $20 each). MSRP is probably about $400 so that's a saving of $200 - or 50%.

SCORE!!

What are the chances you play even the majority of those games? Also, DO IT!
