July 2009 18xx night approaches!


18xx night approachs...this coming Monday!  Which 18xx would you like to
play?  I've created a small poll to help us decide:

  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sb-boardgamers/surveys?id=2530654

What would you like to play?

Updates:

  Several of us have now played a few games of 18TN.  It a neat game,
  quite similar to 18Mex, and is far better with 3 playrs than with 4.
  We finished a 3 player game tonight, from start to finish, in 180
  minutes with experienced 18xx players and a small focus on sprightly
  play.

  I should also receive 18VA by next Monday.  I'm told it too is best
  with 3 players.  I'll make sure to be ready with the rules.

  Ron has offered to bring his copies of 1826 and 18West and I've added
  them to the poll.

Not just 18xx will be played...

A clarification for new folks on the list - there will be plenty of other
games, besides 18xx played as well. :-)

Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks

Hello Game-Junkies,

The expansions for Dominion and Race for the Galaxy are finally out next week, and I want to place my order.  Of
course, if others join in, we can save a few bucks.  

So far, I plan to order from Boards & Bits due to best price for the games that people want.  Alternatively, I'd
also order from coolstuffinc.com as well.

(Yes, you can get free shipping other places, but then they charge more for the games.) 

So far I have the following people signed up to order:
Eugene: RFTG: Rebel vs. Imperium (15.46)
Stephanie: Dominion: Intrigue (27.86)
Me: Dominion: Intrigue (27.86)
-------------------------------
Total: 71.18 

(28.82 more needed to get 1/2 price shipping from B&B or only 1 more copy of Dom: I to get free shipping from coolstuffinc.com)

Any takers?  C'mon, you know you want some new games.  You do.

Please let me know within the next week or maybe two at most cause I'd like to place the order.

If someone else is placing their own order and would like to suggest adding our order to theirs instead,
please speak up as well.

Regards,
John

Re: Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks

I want both expansions, but I'd rather be the one placing the order
(and collecting the money).

Re: Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks

Hi Alon,

You know, I was just volunteering.
I don't plan to make any profit on this or anything.
What's your motivation?
Can I ask why?
  :)

Re: Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks



I'd like to add a copy of Babel 13, the Neuroshima Hex expansion to your order. ($22.39)

If you order enough from BnB, they drop shipping. My last order with them ran about 160 or so, and I paid no shipping. They don't advertise any requirement, and I didn't ask. It just happened.

How are we coordinating to pay the person putting up their credit card?

Re: Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks

Ok, thanks everybody.  I have enough interest to make the order.  I'll wait until Saturday to place the order
to give anyone else a chance as well.  

I trust folks to pay me when the order arrives in a few weeks, cash preferred, but checks are ok.  I haven't
linked PayPal to my bank account, so no PayPal please.

Regards,
John

FYI - Boards & Bits has a note on RftG:RvsI stating:  This item has been allocated, but we have secured enough copies for *all* of our pre-orders. Sorry to get your hopes down.

Re: Re: Game Order - save yourself some shipping bucks



Ok, I might try coolstuffinc.com - the price is almost the same, or we get our games a few weeks later.  Thanks for the reality check.
