Talking Ozgameshop have 10% (maybe 20%) off boardgames

And they are already one of the cheapest stores, at least from Australia

10% off board games: BOARDGAMES10
20% off (old code users only): SECRET20

The 20% code is supposed to be for people who used the 10% off in the last sale, no idea if it actually checks for that.

So far, I've bought

Survive - Escape from Atlantis (and the 5/6 player expansion)
Race for the Galaxy - you can get the first 2 expansions as a combo deal (2 for $45), and still apply the voucher

Still looking for other games, make a suggestion! I'm such a sucker for these sales....

Very nice. Just put the Mage Wars expansion on order (the one Games Paradise charged me for but never sent).... will never buy from local stores again.

Dixit 2 and 3 are great if you don't have them yet. They really extend the life of the game.

20% code didn't work but at least ill get it next sale

I've since found out that the new expansion for Race for the Galaxy is not compatible with the earlier expansions/base game - they are doing a rerelease of the base game, because it changes so much.

Dixit 2/3 would be a no-brainer, except I got them when I first got Dixit (more cards!).

I'm considering Libertalia and Cosmic Encounter

Forbidden Island is a strategic and frustrating co-op game that can be played in 30 minutes.

Similar mechanics to Pandemic, and fun even though we lose.

With the 20% off its $18 which is very cheap. I paid about $30.

I actually grabbed the followup - Forbidden Desert, was only $21 ish, worth the punt

I've played a bit of the original on the ipad (its a gorgeous app)

Bugger - wasnt sure if they would check. I never actually got the email with the 20% code, but it still applied for me.

Added Jaipur. Heard very good things about it, and i like commodity trading games. Quick and easy game to play with my wife, highly rated by Boardgamegeek.

Did a combo deal with a foot tall Jawa... haha

This sale will send me broke

Bought Cosmic Encounter....

I think I'm good now, nothing else I need to buy

And having said that, I tried to buy another game today, code was expired - you can only use it 5 times.

I caved in and got Cutthroat Caverns - its sort of like Munchkins - only good (or so I hear). You have to all help to defeat the monsters, but you want to backstab your friends so that you get the last hit in.

So, I now have in transit the following games:

Lords of Waterdeep
Race for the Galaxy (with 2 expansions)
Cosmic Encounter
Forbidden Desert
Survive - Escape from Atlantis (with 6 player and giant squid expansions)
Cyclades
Cutthroat Caverns

Also:
Hanabi and Timeline from Milsims
Cosmic Encounter expansion from book depository
Cyclades expansion from Games Empire

Should keep me going for a while! I'll justify it by saying my tax refund is paying for it all.
