I just felt I should point out what I consider to be a very nice deal. First off I have not played Vanished Planet yet, although for a self published title I am pretty impressed with the overall quality of the components.

I enjoy a good cooperative game, and one with a nice solitaire element to it is a great bonus. These types of games are far and few between!

Anyway! To get to the point, Vanished Planet games is selling their game on their website for half-off ($19.95)including shipping. This may not seem like much but shipping alone on this game is about 7 bucks as this is a heavy game.

For all I know this has been posted before, and no, I have no affiliation with these folk, I am just cheap.

oh, am i in trouble
I recently promised, no more games. That promise died about 6 games ago. Now this comes along... Oy vey. How can I pass this up? Wait don't asnwer... I'll do it for you. I CAN'T.
Somehow I've got to get all of these new big box acquisitions into the same space that some recently removed card games and small box games once occuppied.
She's gonna kill me when she finally sees them all..

Anybody want to buy Rome, Too Many Cooks, Wheedle, Gavitt's Stock Exchange, Qwitch, Terrace, Space Hop, Outwit, Foil, Stocks & Bonds, Get the Goods, or Stratego for real cheap?!?

I am happy to be of service. I have received many a good word of a deal before here, so I am happy to do what I can to help as well.

As for not having cash in your PayPal account, PalPal is so handy and evil you don't even have to have money in it, it will happily draw directly from the checking account you have associated with your account. I learned of this when I went a little off the deep end with Ebay a while back.

I wonder why these places make it so convenient to spend money? angry

Thank you very much for the tip. I wouldn't have known about this game, if it weren't for you. I'm looking forward to its arrival.

For me, this is one of the many reasons why BGG rules the world.

Yeah, same here. Insane, isn't it?
It looks really nice. And can be played solo.
For what it's worth... the price, and Tom Vasel's review did it for me. I can't wait to give it a try.

You can't possibly be cheap if you'd pay $20 for Vanished Planet. I'm cheap, and I wouldn't go near it for that price
