"No Thank You, Evil" - Kids' Board/Tabletop RPG + Expansions 50% off - Base US $20 (Was US $40) @ Monte Cook Games

90

Monte Cook Games have a 50% off sale on the full range of their kids tabletop RPG No Thank You, Evil and the starter set of their teens/adults' tabletop RPG Numenera.

No Thank You, Evil gets good reviews and is aimed at kids and adults 5+ https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/208428/no-thank-you-evil

I bought the full set which included the base game and the three expansions for US$57.50 + US$13.17 shipping (US$70.67). Total cost was AU$113.42 using PayPal.

Best price I could find in Australia for the core set of No Thank You, Evil was AU$56.49 + AU$10 flat rate shipping. The expansion sets seem to be difficult to come by in Australia https://www.boardgameoracle.com/boardgame/price/no-thank-you...

Numenera seems to use a similar core system to No Thank You, Evil, but is aimed at teens/adults. The starter set is currently US$12.50.

    I was against this, until I saw the image and according to the game box - its name is actually "No thank you anti-evil" or "No thank you, ban on evil" and that's a sentiment I can endorse in a children's game

      You just fell for the oldest trick in the book. Of course an evil game would claim not to be evil. That in itself is part of its evil.

      Let me ask you this: is Scrabble called Non-Evil Scrabble? Is Trivial Pursuit's full title Anti-Evil Trivial Pursuit? You gotta think with your head. If a game is going out of its way to claim that it's not evil, then probably it's actually evil.

    My kids love playing this so much. The look on their faces as it dawned on them that they could truly do whatever they want!

    It works well as a system for kids across multiple ages - they 5 year old is just as happy playing it as the 11 year old.

    Whats the difference between the PDF version and print - Do you not get the box and instructions with the PDF versions?? I can't seem to tell

    •  

      PDF version is just a digital download, so no box, no chips, and no dice.

      You could make these yourself from the download, but for the base set I would highly recommend the physical version.

        I ended up getting printed everything

      NOOO - why couldn't you tell me before i ordered!!!!

  •  

    10 days later and the order status is still 'processing' =(
    Should I be concerned, or they got more orders than anticipated perhaps?

    •  

      I literally just got an email from Australia Post at lunchtime today saying that my order was on its way. It's being fulfilled by a company called Aetherworks, which seems to be the distributor in Australia for a bunch of board game companies. The only other email I got from Monte Cook Games was to say my order was being processed. Probably nothing to worry about.

        Ah cool, cheers.
        That actually answers two of the questions I had.. I also got an Aetherworks mail but I back a lot of boardgame kickstarters and just assumed it was one of them :P

    Got my game today. Absolutely beautifully packed. Big box. Foam inside. Bubble wrap. Superb transaction.

  •  

    2 out of 3 ordered pieces arrived the other day for me also.

    I sent a support email and just got a reply today, apparently Aetherworks are out of the "Raining Cats and Dinosaurs" expansion, and will be shipping again as soon as they are in stock.

    That's a relief and all, but I feel like they could have emailed and communicated this to me instead of radio silence and making me think that I lost half my order ;O

    Just got mine today as well, can't believe how well packaged it was by this Aetherworks mob, amazing.

    Most beautiful rulebook I've ever seen in a board game as well, so well presented.

    I'm glad that a few people have found this post useful. I am going to set up the first adventure for my kids (6 and 7) this weekend. Anyone else had the chance to play yet?
