So I dropped $100 on the BF2012 sale on Miniature Market last night.

- City of Horror

- Spartacus: A Game of Blood und Treachery

- The Island of Dr. Necreaux

- Small World + Tales und Legends Expansion

The X-Wing Miniatures game went OOS before I could pull the trigger, which is a bummer, but I'm generally pretty happy with my order. Now it's just a matter of waiting to see how badly I get screwed over by Amazon deals between now and Christmas.

Meh. I have yet to see any deals that have caused me to fall into "OMG SUCH AN AMAZING DEAL MUST BUY NOW NOW NOW!" mode.

Well I went to Pandemonium books today.
(http://www.pandemoniumbooks.com/)

They had some stuff on a sale table at the front of the shop. Not sure if it was a "Black Friday sale" or just a sale. Nothing on the sale table wow'd me, but I did pick up the Battleground Fantasy Warfare: High Elves starter deck for the standard price. The Battleground stuff is still a good buy even if it's not on sale.

I have purchased nothing today. And I have no regrets about that.

Meaningless purchasing and consumption is meaningless.

I actually made my MiniatureMarket purchases on Wednesday and am anxiously awaiting the UPS delivery.

- Galaxy Trucker
- Race for the Galaxy
- Munchkin Deluxe
- Sherwood Forest

I've been eyeballing them for a while and between personal wants and gifts it's a well-rounded purchase.

Getting a board game is never "meaningless". shake

Getting a sweet deal on a great board game is even nicer. However I'm glad you've no regrets, and hope you had the chance to enjoy a gamer or two you already own today.

When you have as many as I do, yes, it starts to get meaningless. But I was thinking more of the people who wait in lines and get involved in violent incidents. And yes, played I'm the Boss and Steel Driver with my kids and father-in-law, and had a ton of fun...

I picked up Dixit Journey and Telestartions for my wife this weekend. Neither are my favorite games, but I know how much she likes them so I'm glad ai got them. Went to a game store and picked up the Battlestar Galactica CCG starter and the Huntik CCG starter. They were on a super sale, unrelated to Black Friday. I have no regrets picking them up be quad the total came to

Got Hold the Line for $15. Had my order at CSI readjusted for BF sales, added on King of Tokyo: Power Up! and the final four faction packs I needed for Summoner Wars. I think after the adjustment the addons were a net gain of under $20.

I wound up just buying from White Dragon since they had everything I wanted in stock. Still totaled to about the same as CSI with 10% discount.

I picked up Star Trek Settlers of Catan and Dixit Journey from Target. (Online - as if you could get me to a Target on Black Friday!) The Catan at least was a really good deal.

Though in order to escape family in the evening my friend and I went to a bookstore and found Doctor Who stuff BOGO 50% off. Which was not an AMAZING deal, but we were also really bored. So bored that we'd played Star Wars Life earlier that we'd found in my father's closet. It was awful.

Long story short: also the Doctor Who Card Game. No regrets!

Sure, if I run across something that I think is an awesome deal, I'll mention it. However I can tell you it has yet to happen - 10% off is not a sale worth looking at in IMO.
