Not to me. I had a hard time searching for boardgames on sale and just gave up. Anything I did happen on was over-priced or unavailable. Fail.

The prices - with the discounts - are, indeed, very nice. 50% off already discounted prices! But the shipping costs are fairly high.

Edit: Corrected typo.

Horrible... horrible... horrible search on that website!

Great discounts on some games... Troyes for $16.50, but shipping is high and I know California gets taxed (not sure about other states)..

I ended up getting Small World Tales and Legends for $11.45 shipped. Not too bad considering Amazon has it for $1.50 more for the base price alone.

Tax is annoying but acceptable. Shipping is about average. What truly sucks is the tax is on the *pre-discount* total, the 50% off comes *after* the tax has already been calculated. And no, they don't discount the tax by 50% - just the base amount.

Even so, it is a decent sale once you dredge through to find anything that might be interesting - even when you add in shipping and the double tax.

interestingly it now longer says how many are left and it's no longer "clearance" price but just "sale" price at $55.20 which means I believe it's also not 50% off that price.

Labyrinth: The War on Terror [OS1] $42.00
Stronghold: Seige Warfare in a Realm of Fantasy [OS1] $45.47

Subtotal: $87.47
Shipping: $15.95
(I went with USPS priority)
Discounts: -$43.73

Total: $59.69

I thought this was a pretty good price for both games and shipping, saved about $30 if I was only buying these 2 games from any other OLGS.

FRP has an oddball inventory system, that tracks overstock quantity and price adjusts accordingly - once the overstock amount is sold, the item drops to its usual price. And no indication is ever given that the item was ever for sale after that.

I placed an order a few months back where I got 2 copies of an item - but since only 1 was listed as overstock quantity, I was charged overstock price for the 1st and normal price for the 2nd. I knew the price up front, no hidden gimmicks, I just wanted 2. Once I placed the order, the clearance listing was gone.

Just when I thought I was out...

Picked up Troyes, Spectral Rails, The Golden City, Battue, Sector 41, Masters of Venice, Super Munchkin 2, Conquest of the Fallen Lands and a bunch of supplies. Figured If I was gonna pay shipping I might as well make it worth it.

Did BGGers crash their site? I was getting sporadic database errors while browsing and now the ol' 404!

Edit:

Now it says "Site will be back up in a moment."

They are no longer on "clearance", just "on sale". If the item doesn't say "clearance", you will not get the additional 50% off. If you read thru the trail of responses, you'll see somebody explained FRP's inventory system.

edit - that somebody was KGBRadioMoskow.

I managed to resist the temptation on all of the stellar Amazon deals running up to Christmas but the $2 deal for Sector 41 finally got to me. I picked up Gold Mine and the last clearance copy of Duel in the Dark: Baby Blitz as well.

I did see that they have Zombie State: Diplomacy of the Dead still on clearance for $41.97 ($21 once you take off the extra 50%).

Thanks for this post, I hadn't heard of this online store before. Agree their sorting mechanism is painful for the clearance production but worth sifting through it all for the deals, and bonus this the first store Ive come across that has a good selection of board games (for me) and RPG production (for BF).

They only do quotes for international orders due to shipping calculations but I would consider shipping costs pretty good on par with my expectations. So for international orders it's a really good deal.

The end2011 code didn't work for me on checkout but they sorted out for me, I think this might have been due it being an international order.

I got the following at clearance prices:
Krysis $3.75
Good Help. $17.49
The Gnomes of Zavandor $17.50
The Mines of Zavandor $17.50
O Zoo le Mio. $11.54

Plus some other stuff.
