Unbreakable Bonds. It adds a completely new monster AI that makes solo and co-op much more interesting and a couple of good quests and other content. All the expansions are good, the only one I don’t have is the Falling Star or whatever since it is PVP focused and I don’t think the game really needs that.

Hmm, $34.77 when I just checked. The expansion you recommended was $150. Yikes!

What do you mean "through our link"?

Runebound 3e had been hovering right around $20 for months. I've resisted this far but I'll probably end up with it at some point. It's a shame unbreakable bonds is impossible to get now though.

Also Target has the small expansions buy one get one 50% off on their website atm, not sure if theyre still in stock but they were yesterday when I looked.

You can Solo the base game if you play the monsters vs yourself in combat. The unbreakable bonds expansion adds true Solo play, and is sold out everywhere (presumably because everyone bought it along with the dirt cheap base game on Amazon).

Speaking of Amazon deals, the expansion for Pandemic The Cure is down to $16 so I finally bit. Way more reasonable than the $50 MSRP.

I'm kinda expecting (or at least hoping) that the wildly overpriced Roll for the Galaxy expansion ends up the same way in a year.

https://alderacstore.com/scorpius-freighter-special-price-for-us-orders



AEG is currently unloading Scorpius Freighter (MSRP $60) for the pleasant price of $25 w/free shipping to continental USA addresses. The (admittedly light) theming is that of space smugglers hiring a crew & transporting goods under the nose of the big bad nasty government. The game is basically a Euro with 3 planet roundels and plenty of combo options to efficiently use your crew in concert with different cargo, along with ship upgrades to make it all happen smoother and earning more points. Plays quickly (under an hour) I like it best with 2, but you can do up to 4. Components are good quality, art is good. It has the same "professional game" whiff that I got from Res Arcana, meaning this is a game the way they made them pre-Kickstarter. Just a solid, easy to pick up and play title.

And it even made it to the front-page of Slickdeals, which is rare for individual boardgames.

like many, I love me some Vassal, but I finally caved and purchased Tabletop Simulator for Steam. It's half off (10 USD)

Asmodee North America's MAPP Amnesty sale for retailers starts around midnight tonight. Miniature Market and Cardhaus are advertising sales. Not sure how good they'll be, but I got my eye on a few things.

Why on Earth would Asmodee do that?

I'm guessing part of it is to let retailers get rid of all the stuff that doesn't sell at the standard prices.

Yeah, the question was tongue in cheek. Clearly the customer base does not perceive the games as having a higher value, eh?
