I picked up an inexpensive copy of this game off Consimworld. The only reason was to complete 2 partial copies that I already own for this version of the game.

A separate CSW purchase. Another Victory Games title that I simply never looked at back in the day.

Another order from CoolStuff was from their Summer Sale. However, an item I had ordered for a friend was backordered for 4 months, so the package only arrived today.

This was the big part of the order, a remake of an SPI monster wargame.

It was only after I had worked out an agreement did I discover how expensive these things could get.

Sadly, it was also after we had completed this deal that the promos were offered by FFG in their Holiday Sale.

Helping out a friend pick up some games he's been looking for, I decided to get some more items for myself to round out the order.

Still on my Runebound kick, I grabbed this one, the final big box expansion that I was missing.

From one of the many Chains of Generosity, I won a copy of this game.

I was shocked at the amount of air this game ships around. Hugely disappointed at the lack of components for a game box of this size.

I love the flipbook games from Nova Games. And I was thrilled to finally get my hands on this one. A Wild West version of their Ace of Aces system, it did not meet the same success as the other games.
