After getting into Memoir '44, I'm now looking for something a little meatier. I think the first days of my true wargaming will be solo, and I'm looking at getting some or all of the following.
* RAF
* D-Day at Omaha Beach
* Silent War
* Ardennes '44

In my efforts to pricesearch, I'm not finding very many stores carrying these (or other) wargames. When I use boardgamesearch.com, there are very few results shown for games I have been looking for.

I know war gaming is a niche within a niche, but thought you folks might have some good suggestions.

I'm aware of:
bouldergames.com
ccgarmory.com

Where else do you consistently find fair/good deals online?

No ads please, though feel free to post your website if you sell this stuff.

I did a couple searches and didn't see that this had been asked/addressed before. Sorry if it's a repost. Thanks!


edit: typo.

Ardennes '44 is OOP, so I wouldn't count on finding that one.

I'm going to throw my name on the P500 list. Kind of a cool system for determining interest. I'm curious to see how fast the numbers build.

Great guy, good deals, donates some of the profits, is good about ordering stuff (including non-wargames), and carries books as well as games. I'm overdue in making another order, but we're house shopping at the moment, which has put a big damper on any extraneous spending. Once that's settled, there will be a big order placed.

I've recently had my first encounter with Wargame Depot and it was really good. Previously I've also had good service & prices from Bunker Hill Games. For used stuff I've hit the jackpot a few times with Enterprise Games.

Wargamedepot.com for most stuff. If Boards & Bits has it (mostly mainstream GMT stuff) I will get it there, but a majority is from Wargamedepot.com. Good service and fast shipping.

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but you may need to steel yourself for a multiple year wait. GMT has pretty much shelved all P500 reprints due to the economic downtown (except for the wildly popular Commands & Colors: Ancients base game) for the foreseeable future. On top of that, there are a handful of P500 reprints that have chalked up better numbers than Ardennes '44 to date.

That said, IMO you're doing the right thing by formalizing your interest in the title. I get the sense that some games really languish in these P500 programs a long time as many people hang back and observe how quickly they garner preorders, before finally jumping in with their own order near the end. Perhaps if more genuinely interested parties followed your lead, some of the games would hit the shelves quicker (I really don't know, this is pure speculation).

Also, I'll add to the chorus and recommend Wargamedepot.

They are usually quite good at obtaining OOP items.

Thank you all for the kind recommendations to Wargame Depot!

We have Silent War in stock and the 2 Decision Games are up for pre-order (should be in stock soon!).


Cheers,

The three I use are:

www.bouldergames.com

...in order of preference. They usually have the best prices on product and shipping.

WOW wargamedepot.com has a great following! I also give them a thumbs up I was just on their website before I came to this thread.

I also like Bunkerhillgames, they also have Great service.

From time to time I will also use boards and bits as well as cool stuff inc, but neither specialize in war games.

Ditto! All three! I buy many games from BGG marketplace and CSW buy/sell. I have gotten lots of good deals on UP games!
