On offer at Amazon.de today:

10:15 - Kingdom Builder boxset. This was down to 29.97 EUR the other day, so expect the same.
12:00 - Scotland Yard Master. Advanced version of Scotland Yard with new iOS/Android app capability. No English though I don't think.
15:00 - Alhambra Big Box. Played this the other day, the box is huge! It's the base and 5 expansions (which all add 4 new things).

Great spot - this dropped to €34.99 in 2013, so expect the same or lower. I already have Alhambra and expansion 2, so just don't know whether I can justify a sixth (!) purchase this week ... all in one big box though you say? ...

Nice...But this is obviously going to be the German edition...Will the contents be in English (I can see the box text is all in German)?

Thanks

£15 - and now all gone!

Great bargain, thanks for spotting nutter45 and brings my total to 7 games this week. I'm gonna get killed when these start arriving! Hoping for a large cupboard to appear as a Lightning Deal

Thanks

There's some text on some of the cards but it's not extensive. BGG lists it as "Some necessary text - easily memorized or small crib sheet"

I got one too, from my phone in a meeting These don't hang around for long. At £15 you can't go wrong.

Likewise the wife is going to be furious but hey ho

Dominion is a very popular game, personally I didn't get on with it, but loved the successor Thunderstone as it's the same sort of game but with a theme on it, giving a reason why you are doing things. More cohesive. I haven't gone back and played dominion so based on one play years ago.

€40 plus postage for the Alhambra - too rich for me!

Completely forgot! Assumed it was going to be £20, and decided I wasn't fussed. Would have at £15 though!

Hurrah

The return of 'Betrayal at House on the Hill' - at 5:50pm today.

Plenty of time to watch the Tabletop episode before you get clicking.

Expect it to go in seconds.
