Meanwhile, my collection seems to grow and grow with less time to actually play the games. After today, there's 3 more orders pending for arrival.

Today, this was found in two local stores:



The six minis has dropped drastically here in Sweden, each cost 3 Euro now.

I could not find my old Mastermind so I bought a cheap substitute for 10 Euro now that the tournament gone active here in the forum.

Our local store had a special promo action yesterday: write a post in their FB about your favorite game and choose a board game for free! True, these were used and rather old games from their game library, they just wanted to get rid of them, but still a chance to take some good game. I wanted to get Gemblo (I saw it on their published photo as one of the available choice), but was too late for it and I took Blokus Duo instead.

That is truly wonderful. I wouldn't mind what I would've gotten as long as it's something I do not have.

Is this the same FLGS that let you roll 'discount-dice' on your birthday?  This shop sounds AMAZING!

Who would have thought we would see the day that some of these would be a rare sight in a local store. The two Carc expansions were from a calendar store and 25% discount. That brought the price to $15.00 CND each. 

This wouldn't have been a big deal even a few months ago but looking at Hills and Sheep for example, this is going for $45 USD on Amazon.com, and $53.45 CND on Amazon.ca. That is nothing compared to Princess and Dragon!!! Look at the prices on Amazon.com $166.80 and $219.11 CND. Grab 'em while you can folks!

The game on the right side of the photo, Zeitalter der Entdeckungen - Age of Discovery, was a fortunate find at a Thrift store today, $4.00 CND. Only problem my German language skills are nearly non existent. If anyone, by chance, see English rules I would be grateful.

Cheers,

I have a new local store! I stumbled across it today while on my way to the spice shop.

Website (available in English): L'épée a 2 nains ('The sword of 2 dwarves' or something similar)

Funny name... It's a pun on L'épée à 2 mains ('Two-handed sword').

Oh cool, thanks. My crappy intermediate French is not good enough for puns so I didn't know this.

This didn't come from *my* local store, but I bought it today at someone else's local store: Atlántica Juegos in Madrid. When I get home I'll explain why I think it was a great find!

Falling behind I decided to take one image of everything new acquired. Half of it is from the local store annual sale.



Once again my Descent is complete save 2 items, where 1's been booked and the other one not officially released yet (here).

Paul, do you keep all your games you buy or do you have a shop in your backroom you move stuff into?

Looks like you've got some great stuff - a photo of the games collection might be a nice new thread:
