You are still not done?

It got put away while I was moving and I'm only now getting around to digging out the board games to sticker and punch counters.

If ASL interests you, saw this on BGG today from MMP:

Folks, while clearing some warehouse space, we found a mislabeled box of Armies of Oblivion countersheets which allowed us to build over 100 ziplocked (we're out of boxes, too) copies of the module.

They are $80 each and will go on sale this Saturday morning around 9am EST on the MMP website.

I saw on Boardgamegeek that Thoughthammer is having a massive clearance sale on pretty much everything.  Apparently they're going out of business.

The shipping is prohibitive for me, but it's $10 even for you all lucky enough to live on the mainland.

That's a shame. I hate seeing businesses close.

Me too and I always feel like a vulture picking through their discounted items.

Vultures or not, there are still two Leviathan sets available: British and French. I know that at least some of you are interested in the game.

A relatively new Canadian online game store has started up here : http://www.thecultofthenew.com/

Their regular prices are decent, and every day they run a Deal of the Day promo which tends towards the "Holy crap, that's cheap!"

For example, today you can get Mice & Mystics brand new for $41.99.

Miniature Market is having a sizeable clearance sale.

If it's made by Spartan Games, it looks like it's on sale. There are some scattered other things, too.

Ken Ellis is selling a punched copy of Carrier for $40 as well as a mint copy of Patton's Best for $32.  I just picked up a mint copy of Diplomacy from him.  He responds and ships very quickly.  Some good buys here!

Oops, looks like Carrier is spoken for.  Didn't figure that one would last long!

If you run across another Carrier for sale (at a reasonable price) please let me know. I routinely troll BGG and Ebay but I don't get to visit Consimworld much. I find the forums to be a bit confusing.

You might send him an email, his last post said that the sale was pending but you never know if it fell through or not.

On CSW, you can "subscribe" to individual folders.  "Marketplace" is one of the folders that I subscribe to.  Then, update your link for CSW to just go right to the "Message Center".  On that page, any folders that you've subscribed to will show the first of any new messages posted  there.  That is the best (only?) way that I've found to stay on top of what's new there and what's not (again, only within the game specific folders of games that I'm interested in following).
