Family and Friends simply cannot buy me games. I help them out by telling them to get me gift certificates or cash and i will buy the game and send them a thank you card with a pic of the game. Sometimes this works, sometimes not.

Surely I am not the only gamer who does this? What did you buy yourself that you are going to unwrap with someone else's name on the "From" part of the label?

Kinda.

I caught wind of the insane deal from calendars.com and decided I'd get it for LeptFire as a tertiary gift, we'd played it and it seemed like something we'd both enjoy having even if we weren't clamoring for it. Still, for $20 you bet I'm taking it. Then of course that was when all the orders were being auto-rejected due to the game being "out of stock." I wrote it off as an amusing thrill ride and told her the story, since it wouldn't really spoil the surprise if she wasn't getting it.

About a week later I checked back into the thread to notice that a representative of their store was telling BGGers they would honor the deal and had sent out codes for it. Checked the email and sure enough it was there, so there was Lords getting shipped my way a minute later. The conundrum was that I couldn't really give it to her now, she already heard the story and I'd already taken measures to fill its slot in the gifting order of things, but I could put it down as a gift for both of us.

So that's what happened.

The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

Played and own its predecessor, Marne 1918: Friedensturm. Had to get this one to keep up with the series, and see what innovations they've made since the last one.

I handed this one to my husband a while ago and told him to wrap it up for me for Christmas.

I heard a rumor that I was getting a Saboteur, so I figured I should get ready with an expansion. But actually I got an expansion. So now I got 2 expansions and no base game. Silly. I'll try to make a trade.

This went out-of-print before I got a copy. Found it at FunAgain Games.
When it arrived a week before X-mas, I slapped a bow on the box and put it under the tree!!!

I got this with Ardennes '44 above to qualify for free shipping. It also was out-of-print so I was very happy to get them both for a reasonable price. In same box as Ardennes so it went under the tree as well.
