Anyone know if DOW will do the free game again this year. I really enjoyed getting Cargo Noir last year and I'm holding off on some purchases in the hope that they'll do that deal again. If not, I'll get my items somewhere else for a better price, but free games can't be beat.

Anyone know?

That would be nice ... naturally.

Sadly I had no interest in Cargo Noir last year, so I passed.

Still not much interest in that game, but it would be nice to see a similar offer.

Would have gladly taken up that offer last year had I known it existed as I bought Cargo Noir a couple of weeks ago now...

Sadly I assume this generosity would not cover postage so this would essentially make whatever game they did cost about as much money as it does to buy from a store here as postage costs are quite high to Aus...

actually... not that bad, I seem to remember it being higher last time I checked, and may be different for each game, but this was postage cost on TTR THE HEART OF AFRICA...

I really didn't have any interest in it either, but bit anyway. It took a long time for me to get it to the table, but my daughter kept requesting to play it, so we eventually did. The game is enjoyable enough for me to play if it just happens to come out. She, on the other hand, loves it. I can't really put a price on my little girl finding interest in a bidding game.

I loved Cargo Noir! We bought it with Small World last year and got Cargo Noir for free. I must admit that for the last six months both games have not been played at all, I'm afraid.

The only 'new' games they had this fall were reprints, I think, so they might give one of those away this year if they decide to do the same thing as last year...

Does anyone know if they also did it at the end of previous years, before 2011?

IIRC, it was Ticket to Ride: Märklin in 2010.

I'm just scared they might do Mystery Of The Abbey or Pirate's Cove this year, as I just bought these at Essen last month....

Well, as far as I know, there has been a reprint in September 2012. My box says 2012 as well. meeple


EDIT: Thought you meant the game was released 2010... Probably was...nevermind...my mistake...meeple

2009? Has it been that long? Where's the I'm-getting-old emoticon when you need it?

2010 was Pirate's Cove.

I sure hope they do something this year. I was looking forward to it. Here's hoping!
