As imagined by me:

Br-r-r-r-ring...

Diapers.com: Hello? Diapers.com

FFG: Hello this is Fantasy Flight Games, publisher of hits such as Runewars and Chaos in the Old World.

D: um, ok

FFG: You will start selling our games.

D: ummm, we sell diapers sir.

FFG (waives hand like OB1): You WILL start selling our games.

D: we...will...start...selling...your...games...

We keep saying we want to see games be more mainstream. There you go.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

$49.99 plus free 2 day shipping is pretty good deal all in all!

Edit: I assumed that this was for the 2nd edition release of Runewars, but it is for the expansion, Banners of War. I was distracted by these big plastic keys they had on the site. shake

One day I'm going to go to a local department store and see a copy of Trajan. It's going to happen man, I swear! Games will be half the price they are now! One day!

Me: "See? This is evidence for why I need to browse those other online shops. You never know when they might start selling board games and they might just have something that is out of stock elsewhere."

Girlfriend: "Uh-huh. But why are those 'other stores' always lingerie shops? And why do you always need to click to enlarge the pictures? Do you think that one of the models has got a copy of Love Letter tucked in her thong?"

Me: "Busted!"

GF: "Not funny!"

Well, maybe FFG is trying to get people to start playing games early!

Or maybe, they know parents have tons of downtime when they have kids... NOT.

Or perhaps FFG knows that gamers are all old folks so FFG is hoping that we'll throw in a game when we order our depends....

Either way, FFG is demonstrating some intriguing distribution strategies

Nice find.

For all that are confused why this may be happening, Diapers.com is a part of a larger conglomerate of online stores called Quidsi. Quidsi also operates Yoyo.com, which sells toys and games (including Rune Wars and other Fantasy Flight games). Although each Quidsi store has a separate brand, they all share a single inventory and checkout system (so you can combine products from different stores into the same order). I'm guessing some software bug caused the same game to be listed both on Diapers.com and Yoyo.com.

As soon as I get up from the table, you all start planning behind my back!

What did you expect me to do? That's a long game!
