Yeah, although I do feel a little bit ashamed that I’m not fully supporting the game companies, I regularly fill out the gaps in my collection from Half-Price Books. Game Chest is excellent, though they can be pricey. But they have a goodly stock of old games and they’ll be the first place I turn to when I get around to filling in my collection of Buck Rogers XXVc.
When a new item comes out that I know I’ll want, I’ll get it from Lone Star. They aren’t quite as wondrous as that one shop in Allen which packed up because the owner’s wife got a tenure track position in Birmingham, but it’s friendly and usually has something I want, especially since what I want usually just came out or is a Reaper Mini.
You should have gotten in on the sale the other Game Chest location had when it was shutting down. I got Star Farers of Catan and the 5-6 Player expansion together for under $60. Plus a lot of d6’s, because my players were about to eat beholder rays until they cried for mama.
