There I was, minding my own business at Barnes & Noble and Warhammer 40K Fire Team was $10 USD(US) on the clearance shelf. NOOOOO . . . it's a gateway drug!

That is the deal of the year!

Quick! What's the war gaming equivalent of Narcan?
Nice find!

I just noticed that a hobby shop near me sells Warhammer. It was a surprise to me.

Luckily I am immune to any such temptations.

It's like the Gateway Drug into Kill Team

Frederick – It sure was. I actually did a double-take.

Dining Room Battles21 Nov 2023 4:33 p.m. PST

Stryderg – Good one!

Mad Anthony Jones – Currently all I see are Warhammer and Blood Bowl boxed games in Barnes & Noble. The Wharhammer Fire Team is still available on the Barnes and Noble Website and is currently on sale for $37.49 USD: link

Dentatus – Thanks!

rustymusket – It seems that the Games Workshop marketing department is making inroads. I think Target has an exclusive 40K game now.

Perris0707 – That's what I thought. Fun game but I don't think I will be expanding but I'll be using them in other games. My Sci Fi rules of choice are Xenos Rampamt.

Louis XIV – I haven't played Kill Team but I understand that it is a slimmed down version.

Maybe I'll stop in at B&N on my way home from work tomorrow.

If I'm lucky, they'll be sold out!

Dining Room Battles22 Nov 2023 9:41 a.m. PST

Good one – just stay away from the online B&N store because it's there!

"If I'm lucky, they'll be sold out!"

I saw a starter set of star wars shatterpoint with a £67.00 GBP discount!!!
I went back the next day and it was gone, I felt lucky as it was a close escape.

Quartermass – you have to move fast!

Barnes and Noble sells Warhammer?

Along with D&D and some rare upscale board games.

Have a moment thought for the poor FLGS owner in a town with Target(which has had some GW board games and D&D starters) and B&N on one side, and a GW store on the other in town.

Okay, we're not doing TOO badly. ;->=

However, add online, and it's a challenge.
