Holiday Gaming Damage
« on: January 03, 2020, 11:19:34 AM »
What was your total Holiday Gaming Damage this year?

Computer Games:
Grogheads Deals: Bought Warplan and WW1 (about $60).
Other Sales: Bought very little - mostly Matrix titles on deep discount and not too many of these.  Civil War 2; War Plan Orange & a Pride of Nations scenario - $20 max.

Board Games:
Mansions of Madness - was given one expansion and bought four others.  This ran around $200+.
Compass Games (wargames): Bought 2 of these, ran around $150.
Secrets of the Lost Tomb - $80 with shipping.
Expansions for Eldritch Horror - $20
DVG Games: Gato Leader; Field Commander Alexander - total about $100.  They had a very good sale on Amazon.
DVG Games Kickstarter: Expansion for Fleet Commander Nimitz & for Cards of Cthulhu - $50

RPG Stuff:
Very little, less than $20.  Still digesting my purchases over the last 3 years.

By the end of all of this I only have two things on my board game wish list - excepting expansions for Descent.  Not buying any of those until I play the base game and see how the wife and I like it.

Just $34 to World of Warships for 8 Mega Crates.  Gotta save some $s for TASK FORCE ADMIRAL Vol.1: American Carrier and Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts later this year.

This is, simply put, a fantastic game system. A buddy of mine and I just finished the 'Path of the Serpent' expansion pack over New Year. We finished the first scenario one day, and the last two a few days later.  Fun expansion.

Don't worry, the pricetag won't be so high that you might need to plan in advance.
Your monthly paycheck will do.

Guessing I've dropped $75-$85 for computer games overall this season; $20ish here, $20ish there, etc.  Went for depth in titles (DLCs) vs. a slew of different things.

Star Wars Imperial Assault - $70
18 figure packs - $70 with tax...yep, 75% off at a local retailer. I'm calling this the sale/find of the year!

This was it for me this holiday season.

I grabbed Total War: Warhammer II and Master of Orion (2016 edition).  Both great games but I really love that 'just one more turn' feeling with Master of Orion.  Can't stop playing it!
