I didn't see any recent posts about this so I thought I'd mention it.

Board games are now being sold on BestBuy.com through their Marketplace. I just purchased Ticket to Ride: Europe from Fun Again Games for $12.99 after having applied some Best Buy Reward Zone certificates.

I also came across Settlers of Catan, Quarriors, and Puerto Rico.

Fun Again is not the only seller, there are others too. The game selection across the Marketplace appears limited at the time but maybe this is a new thing and the game selection will increase with time.

The great part about this, at least for me, is that I tend to have a lot of Best Buy Reward Zone certificates that I can now use towards board games!

Yes, you're correct. There are a lot. I guess I should have been clearer. I didn't think they had a ton of "hobby" board games (just my opinion). For example, they don't have Fun Again Games entire inventory available for purchase.

But you're right, there is a lot to choose from.

I have no interest in them, but aren't some of those Avalon Hill games, like Acquire and Robo Rally, out of print or just hard to find? Was surprised to see them there.

Good find, definitely another option for those with a lot of BB Rewards to use.

It may help a little if, when you see the seller's info, you click Shop Seller. It will at least create a list of items from that particular seller.
