I almost bit... pick up Flandern at a good price, get Women & Men for essentially free. However shipping is $10 and I'm only in zone 3 (an easy up Rt. 95) and I really don't care about the party game (Women & Men)

It would be nice if Boulder instead of a daily sale, do like the others do when they are clearing out inventory, just put it all up at the same time. I keep seeing one game one day, another the next, that I'm interested in picking up from them, but shipping just kills the deal unless I could find enough to order at the same time to pro-rate the shipping over.

I wonder if Boulder is doing this just to get the weekly, and now daily, listing on the BGG deals feed. Seems to me this smattering of "one per" sale prices wouldn't be posted so regularly if they weren't working.

But yes, I agree that if they listed a hundred games that were significantly discounted, I might be more compelled to order because more of my wishlist could be fulfilled on one shipping order, rather than piecemeal.

I'm guessing the intent is for you to fill out your order with regularly priced games so that shipping is more reasonable for you and Boulder still makes some money off the order. At these sale prices they can't be making much (if anything).

for what it's worth, I actually did add a non-sale item to my cart as well (it only added 50 cents to the shipping), but it still didn't work out numbers wise for me personaly, though it may for others (especailly those who usually pay for shipping)

I think this daily sales thing from boulder is a great idea - really what's there to complain about? Plus you could always move to Australia and pay $50-60 for shipping 2-3 games...you'd think Aus was far away from anywhere
