Most of the time the Amazon deal’s of the day bore me. Every once in a while they do one that makes me take notice.
Today they decided to take money from gamers, and didn’t want to discriminate between the Tabletop and the Videogamer, from what I can see!
First off a large selection of Tabletop games at %40 off.
Id like to spotlight a couple of recommendations, including one for my Shroud of the Avatar Readers! [pullquote]including one for my Shroud of the Avatar Readers[/pullquote]
Not everyone from the Shroud of the Avatar community was around this long, and I doubt many will remember the videos from the first Kickstarter days! During one of the videos of the early Kickstarter days the Dev team played this game, although perhaps not this version of it! I also carry “Are you a Werewolf” with me at convention booths when I vend for Caveloot.com, it’s a great game!
Takes a lot of people, but is fun, easy to do, and great for social gatherings. Try it at your next party! Now there’s an interesting tidbit about this. When the Dev’s where playing this, at one point Richard made a statement. Something about that statement, and dozens of other things that I knew about him, history, his game making, game interests, etc, all clicked, and it gave me a HUGE insight into the “super secret story” twists planned for Shroud!
I later had a chance to ask Richard about it, and I was fairly dead on. However as time has moved on, a lot of those plans have changed I know based on community feedback and game development. Unfortunately, since I still don’t know what peripherals of that story idea they plan on keeping are, I’ll continue to keep my promises about keeping my mouth shut about my guesses. It won’t be long until I can say what my original guesses where, and what some of the thoughts and Ideas had originally been talked about.
I have not personally played the board game version of this, but being the gamer I am my life is surrounded by both gamers and game developers, and I have heard nothing but good things from all of them!
It certainly looks awesome, and I know I have played the mobile game on IOS of the same theme, extensively. Grr.. in fact I see that happening again real soon now!
If you’re not familiar with the theme/title, you should be. It’s certainly been done in a lot of mediums!
Yay Cheap Ass Games! For those not familiar with Cheap Ass Games, that’s exactly what they did. They made Cheap Ass games, that you get the bare minimums really cheap to play a basic game.
Now personally, I prefer to pay more for my games, get cool things with it, and more importantly help support those developers in their industry!
I’m not the only person that feels that way and that’s why Cheap Ass Games took some of their more popular games and made nicer editions of them. This being one!
I haven’t played this in a while, but I do have their original version in my game room. A good friend of mine once gave me a present of a bunch of their games, in a nice binder, with cool accessories he put together shopping himself. A lot of good times have been had from that gift! Great Present!
WOW! This game has come a long way! I remnemebr when it first came out, and in fact I still have my first edition in the tiny little box it came in. I think I got the first expansion after that, which came with another 100 zombies or some such.
While I stopped investing into the game (which I am sure would not have been the case if I still gamed as much as I was once able to do), I have friends that have continued to pick up a lot of the expansions and things of that nature.
Bottom line, You will not go wrong with this game!!
If you want to make that gamer’s in your life Christmas this year, GET THIS! Open Gifts early, gather the family around and have an amazing day. Take a break for lunch and keep going, as no one is going to want to leave!
For you PC Gamers, they have some high end Gaming hardware up for sale today also!
I have no strong reccomendations in this section, as I can’t reccomend equipment I have not used, and nothing in here is my exact equipment. For the most part my hardware is better (It’s amazing that a build I did 3 years ago has held its value as long as it has!), or the upgrade vs. cost just is not worth it!
If I had money just laying around though, this caught my attention and would be a nice upgrade. Id want to upgrade from my DDR3 ram to DDR4 with it though.
I’m REALLY surprised by the lack of any Video Cards in that selection today! On the other hand, a good thing, as that’s where I really need to do an upgrade! At the moment I can only window shop!
