Is there a code required, or has the promotion expired?

I was keen on a game or two at that price - it's the best Canadian price I've seen for Forbidden Island or Codenames - but the 40% discount isn't showing here.

The discount shows up for me when I put the items in my cart and then view my cart.

Weird - tried the same and it didn't work for me.
Good deal for those who can grab it though.

Must be kismet, as I really shouldn't be buying more games anyway.

I can't browse to any product atm. Not sure what is going on. Every time I click a product, I am brought to the home page. Also, I get an error page when I view my cart now. Weird.

I wonder if this was an error, now the pages for those games specifically say this show the error below, while any other games not on sale show up fine and can be added to the cart.

Anyone checked prices in store?


Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead.
The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old
resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

It works for me for Forbidden Island (entering it into your cart then viewing the cart), but Sushi Go and Codenames both gave me Error 404 errors when ever I clicked on them.

A steal? A good price, but it's $18.95 regular at greatboardgames:
https://www.greatboardgames.ca/outfoxed.html

Either way, thanks for the hot tip. 100% on my radar now. Always looking for good kids games and this one looks excellent.

I think they were having site issues after the midnight launch. I did manage to grab my listed titles, but sadly received a cancellation notice for Dragonwood.

Damn, you're not kidding. Their "free" shipping at $49 is definitely not free (or cheap, for that matter).

I'm having my order shipped to my work, instead of my house (rural vs city), so that brought my shipping down by $20. Still have to pay for my "free" shipping though.

My 4 games average out to $16.25 taxes and shipping in, which isn't terrible, but not as good as it could be.

Looks like Amazon has matched the prices.
