Take Advantage of the Fantasy Flight Games Holiday Sale!

Thursday, November 20th, 2014 | Posted by John ONeill

Gearworld The Borderlands-smallI jumped over to the Fantasy Flight Games website last night as I was fact-checking my article on their acquisition by Asmodee, when what did I discover but a major holiday sale, running from November 19th through December 1st.

The sale covers a wide range of their catalog, from board and card games to miniatures and expansions for their Dust Tactics, Tannhauser, and Wings of War games, as well as great prices on their Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, and Anima RPG products. They’ve even got great discounts on 20 of their novels. Here’s just a sample of their holiday pricing:

City of Thieves: King of Ashes — list $39.95, sale price $10
Descent: Sea of Blood Expansion — list $59.95 sale price $5
Fortress America — list $79.95 sale price $25
Gearworld: The Borderlands — list $49.95 sale price $10
Reiner Knizia’s Kingdoms— list $29.95 sale price $10
The Hobbit Boardgame — list $34.95 sale price $10
Ventura Board Game — list $79.95 sale price $10
Warhammer FRPG: Black Fire Pass — list $39.95 sale price $5
Warhammer FRPG: The Edge of Night — list $29.95 sale price $5
Black Crusade: Core Book — list $59.95  sale price $20

Whether or not the sale is linked to their recent acquisition (and whether or not it signals they will no longer be supporting some of these products in the future) is obviously open to debate. All the more reason to move quickly if you’ve been contemplating getting any of these games — they may not be available for much longer.

There are hundreds of items on sale, but they won’t last long at these prices, so act fast. Check out the sale here.

  1. If I still had my board game crew near me I’d get a second copy of Fortress America since mine is missing many pieces from the 1980s days of taking it from friends house to friends house! $25 is probably what I paid for it back then.

  2. I was very tempted to buy FORTRESS AMERICA, but I spent all my money on Reiner Knizia’s Kingdoms, City of Thieves: King of Ashes, and Black Crusade supplements instead. There’s lots to choose from!

  3. I’ve been interested in Black Crusade for a while, the last Warhammer role-playing I bought were Black Industries Fantasy Roleplay. I looks like this might be a good time to check it out…

  4. Be curious to see a post on Kingdoms (assuming you actually unwrap it).

    There’s an app version of that I’ve thought of trying.

  5. I’ve been interested in Graham McNeill’s Miskatonic University trilogy, though I see from reviews they are far more about gaming than about Lovecraft.

    Still, for $3 each … $9 for the trilogy …

  6. We traditionally put a group order together. I think it is around 400 bucks right now.

  7. Picked up the Collector’s Edition of the Deathwatch Rule Book for $40! (Normally $200!) and 10 more Deathwatch books for $10 each!

    Geoff,

    Indeed. If you haven’t tried the FF Warhammer 40K games, I urge you to do so. I’ve been tremendously impressed with the ones I have tried (Rogue Trader, Black Crusade). They are very well written, and do a terrific job of capturing the wonder and terror of the Warhammer 40K universe.

    Bob,

    Maybe I’ll buy a second copy, so I can unwrap one. (Of course, last time I tried that, I ended up with two copies of Titan I couldn’t bring myself to open…)

    > There’s an app version of that I’ve thought of trying.

    Really? I should check that out. Howard has been telling me there’s a phone app out there I really need to check out call ROAD OF KINGS. Great… now there’s *another* entertainment medium to overwhelm me with options.

    Paul,

    What? I barely had time to glance at the novels. But now that I do, I see that several look very intriguing indeed. Hmmm… I wonder if I can get away with a third order…

    JLB,

    !! Better move fast before some of the games you want start going out of stock. :)

    Rex,

    Fabulous! I had to give myself a strict budget, which meant I couldn’t get all the board games I wanted. But I couldn’t resist the DEATHWATCH, ROGUE TRADER, and ONLY WARS books I didn’t have. I think I ordered 8, which still puts me two behind you.

    Good thing there’s a long weekend coming up.. I have some reading to do! :)
