50% off what? You have to wonder about a seller who doesn't list the things on sale WITH a price ... and prefers to post a fuzzy picture of things that might or might not be in stock when you order them by email or phone (?!?).

Silly.

They are a very small local store, totally trustworthy and would be more than helpful if you rang them. Admittedly they dont have the best online system but still a great deal.

Short version:

1) Rules of Play are totally legit and reliable.

2) They have experienced a number of - er - 'problems' with the way they communicate and portray themselves online.

Think of them as a slightly Special Needs version of a normal games shop and you'll be fine.

They're a good store, they're not a good online store.

I can vouch for that
I tried searching for a few items that were shown in the pictures, these came up with zippo results:

Mangrovia
Canterbury
Zpocalypse

Searching on "wizard" (for Wizard's Brew) came up with 3 pages of results, but I don't think Wizard's Brew was on there (by this was getting a bit frustrated so may have overlooked it if it is indeed there).

I can vouch for them as well, I called in recently when I was in Cardiff, they had a spectacular selection, including some beautiful Crokinole tables.

Some games are listed with prices.
For example, Scythe is listed at £67.

So the Black Friday deal would be £32.50 delivered. That's a pretty heavy discount if I am reading it right.

Others with discount:
Colony £27.50
Camel Up £6.50
A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (Second Edition) £23.50
Love Letter Premium £14.00

and if you can use the sale to preorder then (gulp)
SeaFall £37.00
Pandemic Iberia £21.50
Pyramid Arcade £32.50
Dark Souls: The Board Game £40.00

I've emailed them for some prices for those games that I could identify from the photo. I'll happily post those prices here when they respond.

seems like each game pictured is a 1 off item and they are taking orders via email so any good games will likely be gone by now. I was going to head to the shop on my lunch break but not sure it will be worth it now.

I think they get overwhelmed with the amount of emails asking for prices and trying to book the games.

They posted:
These games are limited stock with one off copies of each game, and emails will be answered chronologically. If you don't hear back from us by Monday, it's likely the game you enquired about has been sold. Sorry, folks

I sent them an email yesterday night asking for Lord of Xidit and the prices of Bora bora, Rokoko and Duel of Ages 2.

As they didn't show the prices neither a way to buy them through the web, I don't know how are they going to manage it.

If I asked for Rokoko price and after me someone is saying I will buy Rokoko without knowing the price as he can expect that it's going to be great price, who is going to get it?

Anyway I'm not going to get mad or angry if I don't get any game, I do understand that they are going to have couple of crazy days ahead.

Yeah. Asked about 3 games but not expecting any. Got the shop a bit of advertising anyway.

Hands off my Bora Bora!!

Rokoko is always on the cheap on Amazon.de in dual language. Can normally pick it up for around 15-20 Eur

I just hope they don't get too much hate from the people when what they are trying to do is to have several nice deals for the people

I spoke to them this morning (before the blog post was updated) and they were quite open about the situation.

They'd expected this to be seen by locals and a few regulars on their email list. They hadn't counted on it getting posted here, and have now been inundated with emails and DMs. (If BoardGameGeek was able to take down Riot Games when Mechs vs Minions was released, a FLGS is doomed!)

If anyone does get anything, enjoy it. If not, no worries, play nice

(We don't want to see a repeat of the way another (larger) retailer was treated last year.)
