My local Half Price Books Outlet has Mongoose Starship Troopers M8 "Ape" and M9 "Chickenhawk" Marauder Suits for $3. I'd be happy to pick some up and ship them out if anyone is interested.

Too late for this now, but just found this quite amazing.

A major supermarket in the UK is re-organising its online offering and decided to close down its existing site and associated brand. This morning, it cut a bunch of board game prices in half. Some enterprising gamer decided to take a look and let the world know that, to everyone's surprise, their stock included a bunch of hobby titles.

I caught onto this before work and found they had X-Wing, TIME Stories, Agricola, Blood Rage, Pandemic, Codenames and a slew of other worthwhile games at half price. And when I say half price, I mean half store price, not half RRP. The discounts were nuts.

So I loaded up Pandemic, Agricola and Blood Rage. By the time I tried to log in, Agricola had gone out of stock. By the time I'd reset my forgotten password, Pandemic was out. By the time I got to the end of checkout, Blood Rage had also vanished leaving me to pay £0 for an empty basket.

Don't feel too bad about missing out: I have enough games. Pandemic and Agricola were re-acquires of stuff I'd sold on a whim anyway and I'm pleased some other gamers who maybe needed it managed to grab some bargains. But, wow: I have never seen stock evaporate so fast.

Wow. I haven't thought about those for a minute.

Too bad I don't have any of that stuff left. I sold all my mongoose stuff when I couldn't find any suits, shortly before they folded that operation.

Those are the right prices for good kit bashes.

CSI has Village for 15$, and expansions about the same.

I really love that dumb Euro trash.

Village is amazing. I did not particularly like either expansion.

I ended up buying--again--the Village Inn expansion this time around because while I have that expansion, it's the Pegasus version and the meeples aren't the same size as those for the TMG version of the base game that I have. I'd been dithering on whether to try to get another copy of Inn because Stronghold had said that the meeples match and they've also lost the publishing rights, but at $10 or $11 I figured it was worth a chance. It's possible I now have two differing versions of an expansion I won't like, making me ripe for the Village Idiot expansion.

Steam has a weekend sale on that has a Boardgames section. Very cheap for the weekend are Twilight Struggle and Battlelore but there are a ton of boardgame games at decent or cheap prices.

How is Battlelore for Steam? Is it any good?

Edit: it looks like it is a port of the IOS/Android game, so maybe I'll get it for the iPad.

For that price I'm not going to worry.

Thanks, Hadik. Went with Assault of the Giants because of the Forgotten Realms nostalgia factor and the fact that it was more than 50% off; Modern Art because I've never actually owned a copy; Honshu, based on its quick play and a review I got from a friend of mine; and Photosynthesis, based on Matt's review here.

Nice haul. I’m feeling too “killteam” poor to get much else.

I enjoyed this game so much that I bought the two expansions (which aren't necessary). You'll have to read over the revised rules and the FAQ's though to play it. It has a Resident Evil vibe. Dark, Darker, Darkest is $12.

For Honor is free on Steam until the 27th (you get to keep it and play it even after the 27th). It’s the Starter Edition, so not all the heroes are unlocked, but otherwise it is the full game.
