Does anyone have any information on Fantasy Flight's annual sale that hits a day or so before Thanksgiving?

Is it going to happen in 2012?

Any idea on day?

Thanks.

The in store sale starts Friday, I believe the online one does as well.

Thanks for the info. Last year and the year before, it started on the day before Thanksgiving. So, this year, it starts the day after?

After a couple years of fighting FFG server crashes and lockups mid-purchase, I gave up on this. FFG seems to have underestimated capacity.

Oh well.

Chock full of useful when information, regarding the online sale in 2012. Oh, and I already read this info-lite thread, before posting, as well as others.

It also takes devotion to post a non-answer to a question, just to be cool and all. Congrats.

Not to mention last year's sale was markedly worse than the year before it, which also was no great shakes. So unless they start tossing clearance stickers on Tannhauser games/figs (hint!hint!) then I would temper my expectations.

Screw that! Dream big!

My prediction:
Merchant of Venus: 10$
Legends of Andor: 20$
City of Thieves: 5$
Mansions of Madness: 20$

Those are exactly the right prices. Nobody say otherwise!

If we are following FFG's trend as of late, then it's all about guessing what free unreleased game will everyone get with their order I say they sneak in the 1st Star Wars LCG Force Pack Expansion, thus making you more likely to buy the core game...sneaky!

For the past 3 years in which I've participated, it was the day before and it was advertised ahead of time. I don't think it's going to happen today since I've seen no peep from them. However, if you mangle the URL used in previous years to look up 2012, you can pull up a sale page, though all the dates still refer to 2011, and the links to games don't pull up anything. It's a start though, and shows they are still going to do this at some point, just most likely not today.

I don't remember them saying anything till it went live last year. I currently can't pull their webpage up...too many BGG users constantly refreshing?

Fantasy Flight Sale is live!

Here's a link: http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/client/client_pages/sale...

Some good deals, but unfortunately nothing that I'm interested in, except maybe the Age of Conan game.
