Went all in on Battlelore since I did not last year and got to play it in the mean time, and enjoyed it. Now for FFG to announce Battlelore 3rd edition.


Oh they would, wouldn't they...

Really wish they had the dice packs available.

Oh, I want some more Battlelore, (its in the cart) but I just got the base game tidy, organized and easy to set up. Realistically an undead pack for flavor would be nice, but I'm not turning this into a two box game.

I think you get a lot of game in the box. It is still dice chucking randomness, but I find it to be more fun/laid back compared Memoir 44'. Its more of a skirmish with some objectives than proper recreate a real battle scenario, that Memoir tends to be.

$109 shipping to Canada? WOOF! I'll wait until Meeplemart resells some of these titles.


I hope meeplemart has the sale again.


Same here.

I was bummed about passing on Black Flag last year, so would love to see it pop up cheap again this year. Not sure there is much else I would jump on, although a handful of decent titles were marked down.

Make sure you have the most current rules for Conan. I played it and will be buying Batman when it goes to KS.

If they had the core sets for Battles of Westeros and Call of Cthulhu then I'd have an order placed for everything in those lines. Without them though I think I might be safe this year.

I just bought 2 games (Lewis & Clark for $20! and the aforementioned Via Nebula for $20), and my shipping estimate was $13. However when I checked out, it had mysteriously risen to $17.59. Compared to what others above have seen, that's still next to nothing.


It depends on the content weight and size (I think). I tried Jamaica & Via Nebula, and went for $13 shipping. Changing Deus for Jamaica, decreased it a little (12.40 or something).


You're probably right. It just seems like their system could be enhanced to figure that out when doing the cart estimate, rather than in the checkout process.

I looked at the sale FAQ:

Q: How long will the sale last?

A: The Holiday Sale will end on Monday, November 20th

So they expect you to panic buy before the CSI/MM sales pop up ... clever, very clever ninja


I noticed that also. Now I have to decide whether I want to get Nations/Louis & Clark with this sale, or wait and see if MM has anything good on offer. I'm inclined to wait, as I have Legendary: Aliens on hold at MM, and would like to fill the remaining $70 to get free shipping.

Wasn't Asmodee the first company to handcuff online stores in regards to prices? Although their rules don't apply to their own online store, I thought other retailers couldn't discount by more than ~15% of the MSRP.

I'm trying to decide if Battlelore is worth getting into. And is there a reason to have multiples of expansions/monsters.

Edit:// Sold out of three expansions

Also Earth Reborn for $30. There was a time it was around the Top 50, but it never sold well enough for an expansion and simply went OOP.

I kinda want to buy it, but I already own it. I just want the insert; the person I bought it from in a GeekAuction had tossed the insert and just bagged everything. Apparently the insert is really good. Or it's bound to be better than bags, considering how many tiles of different sizes there are. Took me forever to inventory that thing to make sure it was all there...
I routinely check the "Have Parts" spot on the game's page but no one ever has a spare insert available.


Outside of wanting to blow a bunch of money just for an insert for the above game, the two Tragedy Looper expansions are calling to me at $10. I've never played my copy of Tragedy Looper though, so I'm not desperate to get the expansions at this time or anything.

I believe the loophole is advertised as such. This is why you see CSI using a feature where you need to click to see the actual sale price.

Picked up the Wiz-War expansion, since I scored the base game and Malefic Curses expansion at HPB for $14 w/coupon. My older bro and I used to play the old version in the motorhome on vacation, can't wait to bust this out with my kids.

Equivalent to E.T. Atari 2600. I can only imagine how many were printed. Game has been on sale constantly for the last 2-3 years.
The game looks awesome. One of these days, I'm going to crack the shrink and play the damn thing.


I've cracked the shrink!

But that's as far as I've gotten.


Yeah, this has been sitting on my unplayed shelf for years now. Despite its positive reviews, good ranking, and beautiful table presence, there's something about this game that keeps it from getting to the table. Not sure what, though.

Got enough stuff to making shipping work out, but exercised some self control compared to last year. Finally found a copy of Earth Reborn.

I think Ventura goes in and out of my cart every year.

A Note - I remember last year that after the big Asmodeum sale Coolstuffinc had much of the same stuff - plus more - on sale thereafter with better shipping and in some cases better pricing.

And also it was directly after this sale last year that all the Queen games on Amazon dropped into the basement.

I grabbed one of everything last year and it was 100% worth it. It's my most played game. I wish the monster expansions were left in stock, I would have bought another 1 or 2 sets of each at that price.
