Maelstrom Games have just put an email out offering a 17% off RRP voucher that's good until midnight gMT on the 9th of Jan. The voucher code is JANUARY-2012. Maelstrom do free international shipping, and seem to have a decent stock of Fantasy Flight games.

The voucher can't be used to purchase anything from the following ranges though:

- not on any Flames of War items
- not on any Gale Force Nine items
- not on any Kingdom Death items
- not on any Studio McVey items
- not on any Seeds of War items
- not on any Too Fat Lardies items

The email stresses that the voucher can be used any number of times and can be shared around freely. Maelstrom Games seem to do a 17% voucher every few months - I used the last one to order a couple of Arkham Horror expansions.

Slightly misleading as they already take into account the discount they already have off items. So for example if you buy something for £50 and it already had 10% off the RRP you only get a further 7% off. No other retailer I've ever dealt with does this.


Yes, somewhat misleading, or, rather, completely truthful, but written in such a way as to encourage you to mislead yourself. But then that's 'advertising'. How many shops are showing "up to 50% off" banners at the moment, and other similarly misleading claims?

But that is the way that Maelstrom works. If you know that, it is not a problem in the slightest. Their major problem is that they encourage (or is that 'train') their customers to wait for these discounts.

Who cares!?!? Either way in Oz buying from Maelstrom is STILL cheaper than any stores we have and they post for free, great prices
