Hi All,

I've never used this company and the game isn't something I fancy, but a £40 game at £14 is something I'm sure somebody would be interested in.

Looks like they have put the main game at the same price as the individual teams. Might be worth getting in there before they spot it!

It's only just been released and looks like it's being distributed from Esdevium, have serious doubts they will honour it unless they just don't notice the obvious mistake.

Many thanks for this.

I've used Buy4Less once before and had no issues. Regarding whether or not it is honoured - it does clearly state it is being marked down from £40.00 I don't think it should be assumed this is a mistake but you never know - fingers crossed we get what is expected.

By the way using the promo code FBJPR gives you an additional 10% off.

As far as I can make out from following the Kickstarter (nearly pulled the trigger, bottled out of the spending) it's Blood Bowl with the serial numbers filed off just well enough that Games Workshop don't set the lawyers on them.

Actually, maybe they have, and that's why the fire sale?

No, they've clearly priced it as an expansion accidentally.

Having followed the designers diary... it plays nothing like Blood Bowl. "It's a ball sport game with fantasy races played with miniatures" is about as close as they get.

But hey, thanks for spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt about a newly launched game line!

Actually the Bloodbowl comparison gave it a lot of credibility. Whilst I'm sure your response is accurate, it also massively dials interest down a lot for me, and I'm sure others...

Being a Bloodbowl clone would actually be a pretty good pedigree, better than most.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I think it looks quite good - I nearly pre-ordered, but I couldn't see it getting to the table enough to justify a big spend. I haven't (yet) played it.

But come on, it looks like it has roots in American Football, there's a Dwarf team and a SkavenRatmen team amongst others - I'd put money GW's lawyers have at least had a bloody good look and some internal discussions... C&D would be about par for the course for them.

In any case, taken a punt at that price. I'll see in the next few days if they honour it or not. Cheers Jim!

[Edit: forgot to add thanks, sorry]

Great spot! Even my wife recognised this was too good a deal to pass up on.

Just bought one. Thanks. For that price I could do with at least one sporting game and I liked Speedball on the Amiga. Also I can use up my miniature paints that are drying out.

It's £7.99 shipping to Germany (and thus probably Europe), for a total of £20.11 GBP if applying the coupon code from archivists. Awesome, thanks!

Looking at their price for other boardgames this is most definitely a pricing mistake. They are losing about £12 - £14 on each copy sold.
