Secret Weakness: Going out of buisness sales

So I got an email notice yesterday about a game store going out of buisness and that everything would be 50% off. That was enough to have me scrambling over there as soon as I was able and I ended up blowing another 180 dollars on games and assorted other crap. I guess I should be happy that it wasn't more since apparently Eileen (the head of board games for double exposure) was there that morning and dropped 1500 dollars on product. That must've cleaned out around half of the boardgame inventory.

On the way down to the store I actually got lost and had to call Connie and have her feed me directions from online. Nutty if you think about it that I would have to call her in new york just so I can get directions. Once there it was one of those kid in a candy store situations. With a 50% discount, I ended up saving a few bucks per game compared to the prices off of thoughthammer. Add sales tax to it and I figured that I saved around 40 dollars I'd imagine. I also picked up a few things for Randy while I was at it.

I got:

Evo: A game about dinosaurs and their evolution
Ninja Burger expansion: Fast food delivering ninjas
Wooly Bully: A game of protecting sheep from wolves
Formula De mini: A little racing game
Illuminati Crime Lords: A game of forming a criminal empire to attack others
Risk Godstorm: The newest game in the Risk franchise
Saint Petersburg: A game of scoring points and making money with peasants, nobles, and buildings
Lost Cities: A two player card game I've heard good things about

Errr, I think that was all the boardgames.

I also got a large plush d20 and a complete set of the dwarven forge metal dice. I'm thinking of hanging the plushie off of the rearview mirror.
