1 copy left at £23

Twilight New Moon Board Game

https://www.buysend.com/Product/196123/twilight-new-moon-boa...

£11

Forgotten King

https://www.buysend.com/Product/196059/forgotten-king-soda-p...

£36.19

Not sure on how much of a 'deal' SoA is but the expansions seem cheap. SDE has some expansion stuff listed too at good prices. Firefly stuff is the cheapest I've seen in the UK. And Terminator is cheap, that could mean it's really bad though, workable for someone who likes terminator, specially at £16.

They have some Hobbit and LotR games listed but I'm not sure about them.

I received my stuff today and the Firefly core game is the US edition.

Not that it matters to everyone, but that appears to be the american firefly (it doesn't have as much room in the box for expansions and has one less ship).

Actually ignore that, I think it's just the expansion

Yeah it appeared to be this-

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/138745/survive-...

The fact they call it the Survive Board Game though with a stock photo of an expansion makes me wonder at times how accurate these sellers are.

I think the terminator listing has the box for "war against the machine" but the description seems to be for "Battle for the future". Can anyone help me out here if I'm missing something obvious?

Despite the picture shown of the box cover (though the map with miniatures looks accurate) the description is this, which is the core game-

https://store.warlordgames.com/collections/terminator-genisy...

And this-

https://www.buysend.com/Product/Details/227434

which shows the actual core box but no real description as to content I assume is this-

https://store.warlordgames.com/collections/terminator-genisy...

However if your uncertain (I am) I'd message the seller as the stock pictures are messed up and the secondary item listed as Terminator Genisys Game doesn't give anything away as to contents. I think it's just confusion on the sellers side and they've just used stock photos without checking them.

I couldn't wait that long so I ordered. blush

I spotted that other one you mentioned which I also added to my basket. Funnily enough the individual postage on the £12.39 game was about a quid more than the £16.39 one.

They are each described by their images as the war against machine and battle for the future respectively. If that is what I receive then I've got a bargain. If not they'll be returned.

Thanks for your help BTW.

Yes absolutely. £16 is a great deal if it is indeed that core box which I assumed it was when I first posted, I considered it to mix up between my Alien versus Predator stuff. But went in for all the Firefly instead. Find out soon as I've never used this company before but they do have a history on ebay and amazon, so they can't be to dysfunctional.

Yes on their ebay they also have this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Terminator-Genisys-Game-/131997877...gRl0AAOSwMVdYIoVP

and this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Terminator-Genisys-Miniatures-Game...g0GwAAOSw5cNYIoL4

I guess I'll find out eventually.

That second eBay link is just for the expansion pack of Terminators I think.

Yes I think so too.. and it is a markedly different price and picture to either product shown on BuySend's site.

On Buysend they have this:

https://www.buysend.com/Product/Details/227434

which, with individual postage from BuySend is the same price as this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Terminator-Genisys-Game-/131997877...



And then they have this:

https://www.buysend.com/Product/196036/terminator-genisys-st...

which with individual postage is the same as this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Terminator-Genisys-Starter-Box-/40...


So I am reassured that the if they have made a mistake on the buysend site then the same mistake has been made on their ebay site.

Well if anyone hasn't got Sons of Anarchy then the prices for the game and the two expansions are a steal, as is the Spartacus Shadow of Death expansion - unfortunately I do angry .

I was able to use the code BUYSEND10 for 10% off the price before postage as well! Bargain for the SOA expansions.

Hi Simon

Bit confused, did you order two different items at two different prices and then get two the same ?

Cheers

Yes.

They gave me £10 refund to persuade me to keep them so it cost me £23 for both delivered.

Crikey. That's not a bad result is it ! Only thing you're missing I think is the metal Kyle Reese and the full rule book. For that price though cant grumble !

I bought this game too from Buysend, but I'm not sure the short version of the rulebook will be enough for me, as it has only 3 scenarios, and I can find no free scenarios to download, although they mentioned in the rulebook that there would be at Riverhorse's web page. Anyway, this might be a bit off topic, but I hope maybe someone here can help me: how and where can I get the full rulebook? Those of you who bought this item from Buysend, do you have the full rulebook from some other source, or you're just planning to use those 3 basic scenarios?

Well, you can buy the full rulebook separately from Warlord games

If you can find the War of the Machines box for cheap it's a better deal as you get the rulebook + Kyle Reese + more of the mini's, tokens etc.

They also have some more scenarios in PDF form on the warlord website.

Thanks. The Kyle Reese mini is of little importance to me, and that's the only other thing "War of the Machines" seems to have in addition to the "Battle for the Future" box. (besides the full rulebook, of course) What I want is to have a game which doesn't become boring too soon.

By the way, could you tell me whether the scenarios require that you buy extra content, and if so, what type of content would that be? I can craft some things, like buildings or tokens, if there are details of how they are supposed to look like, so if that's all, it wouldn't be a problem.

I can't find the scenarios in PDF on the Warlord website, not even for sale, much less for free. Could you post a hyperlink to the location of these files, please?

For the price I thought it was fine. Even with three scanrios. Some neat models, a good system. I'm happy...

FYI I couldn't see the extra scenarios from that link, I found them here: http://www.warlordgames.com/category/terminator/

The other scenarios usually require unique models, although there's nothing to stop you proxying the models with the ones you've got or from another game

Warlord games have dropped the price of the War of the Machines box set to £20! Bargain considering the rule book alone is £15.
