10% off Selected Board Games at OzGameShop.com

330
BOARDGAME10

OzGameShop currently have 10% off a selection of board games on their website. Given that they are already WELL below local pricing in store and online and also offer free shipping, I figure this is about as cheap as you're ever likely to see some of these games.

Just a few stand-outs that I'm picking up:

Small World: $39.59 after discount (~$58 + postage online locally)
Settlers of Catan: $35.09 after discount (~$46 + postage online locally)
Ticket to Ride: $42.29 after discount (~$58 + postage online locally)
Dixit: $27.89 after discount (~$40 + postage online locally)

    Risk $30! Best price I've seen for it

    •  

      Spent hours playing this with my mates. Good times.

    •  

      just as an aside here, Small World is a very similar concept to Risk but muuuch better in my (and many others) opinion.

      but you're right, that is a great price for Risk.

  •  

    They did a 15% back in Feb, but this is still a great discount. The OPs list above is excellent for people wondering what entryway type games to buy to introduce to their family and friends who have no idea about board games outside of Monopoly.

    •  

      You mean there are other board games?!?!

      Heh I play settlers of catan :) Read about it in Wired ages ago, saw it at some game store and ended up buying it. Never looked back.

  •  

    I have a question about OzGameShop. Does anyone know if they order in and warehouse the stock themselves, or do they just source their items from stock available from importers in the UK. I made requests for them to get some board games in 3 months ago, but they are still unavailable :( Now would be a great time to buy.

    So all I have at the moment is Stone Age, and looking to add some more to my collection. We mostly play as 2, but do play 4 at times as well.

    Am thinking
    Small World
    Ticket to Ride Europe
    Carcassonne
    Puerto Rico

    Does anyone have suggestions of other things, things to leave out to save money etc?

    Even before this code its cheaper than Amazon.co.uk, which is pretty cool.

      Lords of Waterdeep plays well with 2 and 4 people and is relatively quick for a worker placement game. I Actually got it form Bookdepository.co.uk a while ago for around $39, but it looks like they've upped the price so OzGameshop is cheaper at the moment.
      Puerto Rico is a classic, I wouldn't want to play it with 2 people though, a game that's much more fun with 3 or 4. However I'm not a real fan of it in the first place, the theme/setting doesn't really do it for me.

    •  

      +1 to Lords of Waterdeep, just played it on Fri night again! Can't wait til expansion comes out

      My group used to love Puerto Rico until we discovered Race for the Galaxy. It's basically Space Puerto Rico with cards… haven't played Puerto since we got Race

    •  

      +1 to Lords of Waterdeep. Great game. OGS has lots of great games.

      •  

        I'm going to give Lords of Waterdeep a miss for the time being. Already got Stone Age and as it is worker placement as well, going to go with Carcassonne, Puerto Rico and Ticket to Ride Europe for my first couple.

    Good post diamondd, I've just purchased 3 board games :)

  • +1 vote

    Cranium - $34.10 (after discount) (local usually around $60-$70, bought for $35 from Target during the below cost sale for older version)

    By far my favourite board game at a party that's quick to pick up and play (unlike some of the games mentioned with a lot more strategy and time involved)
    It involves clay moulding, charades, trivia and other fun things, always gives lots of laughs. 4+ players, ages 17+

    (And Cards Against Humanity is my favourite card game, but not sold by retailers just yet)

  •  

    Just got myself The Resistance Avalon and San Juan. Thanks!

  •  

    Lords of Waterdeep is a good game for people looking for a modest boardgame that isn't too complex or too time consuming.

    Some other good games they have in stock:

    Descent (fantasy dungeon game)
    War of the Ring
    Summoner Wars (card duelling game)
    Arkham Horror (coop Cthulhu mythos game)
    Eclipse (sci-fi)

    Games I would like that have been out of stock for a while:
    Earth Reborn (Amazon US doesn't ship to AU)
    Twilight Imperium
    Mansions of Madness
    Mage Wars and the expansion
    Command and Colors
    Claustrophobia
    Tannhauser

    Dixit is quite unusual. We have enjoyed playing it as a family…can get a bit repetitive but a simple local rule fixes this. Certainly on the list of games you must play before you die.

  •  

    Thanks. I just ordered Castle Panic, which I have been thinking about buying for a while.

  •  

    Hey folks, considering these are going to be shipped presumably from the UK, what state do you think the boxes will arrive in? I'm a bit OC when it comes to the boxes of our boardgames… Any experiences any of you would care to share?

  •  

    I have received 3 games from ozGameShop over the last 12 months, and they were all in good condition. They are send it a box that is about 20% larger by volume than the game box itself.

    I assume they have a special arrangement with a freighting company - that is the only way they can sell games so cheaply with postage included. To post a game over 2kg from the local post office in Britain costs about $70 I think. Amazon is another good place to get games from since they have cheap shipping as well (it has to be "Fulfilled by Amazon"). Unfortunately they only ship about 60% of games overseas. Amazon chargers $6 for the entire order plus $2.49 per pound. The Book Depository has some Ameritrash games (D&D and Fantasy Flight) with free shipping. Otherwise you have to purchase the games domestically and be ripped offer.

    •  

      Thanks heaps, Thaal! I have to admit, I've never thought of Amazon. I've always just assumed that they don't ship down under.

      Anyway, off to get TTR now. :)

        When people in AU think of Amazon, they think of books, CD and video games, but perhaps 50% of the items in the Toys and Games section are available to be shipped to Australia. It is much cheaper to buy kids toys and adult entertainments such as action figures/bobbleheads from Amazon than locally.

  •  

    Just checked Amazon's prices for games I already own… Damn, could have saved quite a bundle over the years if I had bought them stateside. Oh well. Only upside is I hope I was supporting the really friendly folks over at my local Good Games.

    For those who live in Melbourne, Milsims is probably the cheapest place to buy games, though they frequently run out of stock. Their price tends to track Amazon's (incl shipping).
