I just saw this, and there are some crazy deals on here. There is also only a $75 threshold for free shipping. I have bought from them before and no complaints. They have a mix of boardgames, minis, terrain, paints, you name it.

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/closeout_specials

Some boardgames I see:

Dutch Golden Age $9
Parthenon $10
Guatemala Cafe $9.99
Batavia $11.99
Pizza Box Football $6
Anno 1503 $11.80
Blue Moon Expansions $2.99
Midgard $8
LotR: The Confrontation Deluxe $10.49

Check it out, and thank me later. The list is huge, click the link.

Some awesome deals, but I'm not seeing any of those prices in the store when I search for the games... I guess the sale hasn't started yet?

I checked the list but the items -- when searched for -- aren't coming up at the sale price.

Weird.

Weird, some are showing the new prices, others aren't. Maybe they are in the midst of an update?

LotR Confrontation comes up right, as do Blue Moon expansions.

I think they are conspiring to make me look like a liar.

Edit: Contacted them via email, so hopefully it will get fixed. Sorry for the unintentional headfake everyone. blush

I searched for one thing on the list (Shazamm!) and it didn't even come up. I tried to buy another (Gravediggers) and it came up full price. I'll check back tomorrow but I'm sure everything will be gone.

They have fixed the prices on these now... fortunately I had them in my shopping cart and was able to pull the trigger on them. Fantastic deals here!

now it says the search index is being rebuilt... so I don't guess you can order unless you have them in your cart already.

Here is my order:

1 Change Horses RIO365 9.99
1 Midgard ZMG7012 8.00
1 Neuland ZMG7025 12.00
1 Anno 1503 MFG3302 9.80
1 Toledo MFG4110 9.80
1 Alexander the Great PHA0905 9.00
1 Rugby World RIOA07 11.99
1 Batavia RIOA12 11.99
Sub Total $ 82.57
Shipping/Handling $ 0.75
Sales Tax $ 0.00
Total $ 83.32

The total for this order BEFORE the sale pricing was $412.83!!!

I just hope they don't cancel the order... I've been down this road before with these fantastic sales...

Here's to hoping they fill it!

It appears their live inventory is working as games are going out of stock quickly... we may actually get these orders this time!

There's not much left now. The only game I saw was Lord of the Rings Friends and Foes expansion for $5, 27 copies left. Also there are a few miniatures and some RPG books.

Damn, I didn't see Toledo when I placed my order, I would have liked to snag that one. That'll teach me to post before I fully take advantage of a sale myself!!

Thanks for the tip! I picked up a whole bunch of Reaper paints ($0.60/bottle) and premium minis at 80% off. Not $75 worth, but still a steal.

It would have been nice if they would have made sure everything was set up correctly before announcing this. I think a lot of people missed out.

Yeah, tell me about it. My wife and I had a nice shopping card of seven or eight games put together, just waiting for them to fix things.

Oh well, what can you do, right?

I picked up a bunch of nice looking Reaper mini's that I can use for Heroe's / NPCs and such for a dollar each. Sweet

Edit:

Why all the negativity? These deals were awesome and not going to last.

I think most of the negativity comes from the frustration of the site showing that certain things were on sale when you couldn't actually get them at the sale prices. A lot of us filled our carts only to find that the sale prices weren't reflected. I for one didn't have the time to sit and wait overnight until the problem was fixed. I'll still shop there in the future (I have in the past) but hopefully, the next time they have a sale, they'll do a quick test to make sure everything is working before they announce it.whistle

That's exactly the cause for negativity. I figured there was a decent chance they might not get the site fixed before morning and really didn't have it in me to stay up all night refreshing a shopping cart on the off chance of getting (admittedly large) discounts on some games I really wasn't chasing anyway.

So it goes. I'm not soured on the site per se, but I am pretty annoyed that things went down the way they did. Sure, I could have stayed up later, and might well have if there'd been an inkling the site was going to be working at one or two or three. But with no information and a pretty busy day at work coming up, I just couldn't make myself do it.

Like I said before: so it goes.

I ordered this morning - I missed a lot of the good stuff, but I still picked up a number of card games and some board games - 16 in all for under $100 including shipping. If half to them turn out to be good, then I definitely think it was worth it. Thanks!!

Hello, thanks to everyone who visited our site during our sale. I am sorry that we ran into a few problems when we first launched the sale. I caught the mistake at midnight and worked to correct it right away.

For some reason only the board game prices weren't updated (everything else worked just fine)

We may run another round of new discounts next week so please check back.

I think my message appeared a lot more negative than I meant it. I still shop there.
