  1. Well, the easiest thing from a "pain in the ass" standpoint would be to sell the whole set. Try the BGG marketplace. But you're right; if most profit is your goal then parting it out piece by piece is the way to go. Depends on how you wanna do it. But yeah, I'm interested in just the base game. Don't hold it or anything, but I'll check back when my bank account isn't crying and if you still have it we'll work it out.
  2. I'd not seen that one before. That makes me incredibly happy.
  3. Wow, all of 'em?! That's quite an investment! If you don't mind me asking, is there a reason you've decided to part with it unopened? To go all in like that you must have been pretty interested in the game from the outset.
  4. It would be just the base game. How many of the add-ons did you get? I didn't follow the KS, but being Petersen I have to imagine there were a lot of them available.
  5. Nah, I'm in Jersey. I make the GenCon trip every year, but it's like a 10-11 hour drive. It'd have to be shipped. Don't sweat holding on to it. Keep trying to sell it. But I'll check back with you when my bank account recovers from Fire Emblem, Borderlands 3, and Link's Awakening. If you still have it we can talk. What were you looking to get for it? Being a Petersen minis game I have to imagine it's in the $100-$200 range?
  6. Oh man, I actually want this. I loved Cthulhu Wars and from everything I've seen on this, it's like a tighter, more balanced CW (as much as I love CW, the factions were pretty poorly balanced). But seeing how it's a Petersen miniatures game it's going to be out of my budget for a bit. I might check back with you in a few weeks to see if you still have it, when my wallet is straining a little less from recent purchases (*shakes phist at video games angrily*). Hope you're able to unload it.
  7. I haven't really paid attention for threads related to this because I pretty much decided it was an insta-buy as soon as it was out. :P
  8. Also a reminder that we're still early in the season and it isn't too late to start in and catch up by any measure! You start with $1,000 in fake money to bet with. Just jump right in! @ anyone interested in participating. (See the Week 1 thread for full rules)

Mahomes 4. Dallas because fuck Dallas. 5. Cards, Chargers, Chiefs 6. Redskins 7. Ravens 8. Peterson, Robinson #####################
  10. We almost had a 3 way tie for first place, but Keyser_Soze just edges out the competition by just $100! Despite losing a conservative bet on the Feature Game, he was the only player to call all of Question 5 correctly to earn the bonus and put him over the top! ########## WEEK 2 RESULTS ########## Week 2 Feature Game - Philadelphia Eagles (-1.5) at Atlanta Falcons In an entertaining, hard hitting football game, the Falcons knock off the favored Eagles by a score of 24-20(-1.5). Bets on Atlanta win. 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Eagles TD, Eagles FG, Eagles safety, Falcons TD, Falcons FG, Falcons safety, or other? ($400 for the correct call) Matt Bryant was good on a 43 yard field goal for the first points of the game. Atlanta FG is the call. 2) How many turnovers (combined) will occur in the Feature Game? 0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, or 8+ ($400 for the correct call) These teams just couldn't help throwing the ball to guys in the wrong jersey. Add a fumble to the 5 picks and there were 6 turnovers in this contest. Nobody called this one. 3) Name the player that will score first in the Browns @ Jets game on Monday Night ($400 for the correct call; as always "score" means "the person holding the ball in the endzone") Nick Chubb took the ball off the left tackle for a 19 yard score for the first TD of the game. No player guessed Chubb. 4) Name the QB that will have the highest number of pass attempts in Week 2? ($600 for the correct call) Cam Newton hucked the ball 51 times in a losing effort against Tampa. Too bad none of those 51 passes were for touchdowns... 5) Call the winners: Minnestoa at Green Bay Buffalo at NY Giants Indianapolis at Tennessee ($300 for EACH correct named game winner, $800 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Several people got 2/3 but only Keyser_Soze got 'em all right to earn the bonus. 6) Name both the highest and lowest scoring teams of Week 2 ($500 for each correct guess) Patriots vs. Dolphins simultaneously lived up and down to everyone's expectations! This was basically a free $1,000 for half the players in the MGT. 7) How many total Field Goals (not PATs) will be converted during the Bears @ Broncos game? ($500 for the correct answer) 5 field goals were hit in this game, including a 30 yarder to win with 00:31 on the clock. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week two. ($1,500 for each player named correctly, $3,000 bonus if both names are called) Dalvin Cook ground out 154 yards rushing and Demarcus Robinson got his hands on 172 yards worth of passes to be your Week 2 offensive leaders. Nobody called either player. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @Keyser_Soze - $4,100 @AbsolutSurgen - $4,000 @RedSoxFan9 - $4,000 @Biggie - $3,850 @thewhyteboar - $3,550 Slug - $3,200 @Kal-El814 - $2,900 @BasemntDweller2 - $2,800 @johnny - $2,500 @SFLUFAN - $2,500 @Dodger - $2,300 @Greatoneshere - $1,300 @Jose - $600 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 Week 2 ############################### WEEK 3 FEATURE GAME AND QUESTIONS FOLLOW THIS POST
  11. This reminds me of me and my kids when they were younger. Whenever they'd ask me for a new game I'd tell them I'd buy it for them if they could beat one of my NES games. :P

    John wick sucked

    Anything else about the films aside, the fight/gun play choreography alone makes it an entertaining watch in my opinion. In an era of quick cuts and shaky-cam in every action movie out there, the Wick movies are super smooth and well done. The camera stays with the action for long sequences; no excessive jump cutting, blur, or camera shake to hide flaws. Even if you don't care for the narrative, dialog, or anything else about the movies, the cinematography in these films should be required "Action Film 101" for any aspiring action movie makers.
