This has been a good week as far gaming goes thanks to the wonders of spare tax money and a little bit of extra cash from mandatory overtime at work.

Saturday I picked up MM2 and Faiths and Pantheons along with a present for [livejournal.com profile] taranos.

Sunday [livejournal.com profile] hamner, [livejournal.com profile] satharn and I went to Bookmans and after a bit of discussion about the possibility of /maybe/, someday, playing the game I picked up the player's guide for Rifts (I already had the first Atlantis and the Deities and Pantheons supplements from years ago.) Granted, I nearly died in our D&D campaign later that night as my Shadowdancing Rogue found out why it's never a good idea to get too close to a dracolitch, but I /didn't/ die so it's all good....

Monday I hit up Reaper Minis and Iron Winds Metals and picked up 20 minis for only $55 total counting shipping (discontinued minis are a great buy if you can get a hold of them at all!)

Wednesday I was back at Hat's and got a smoking deal on the Rifts GMG because someone had handled it with messy hands and the cover was a little damaged and picked up the England supplement as well. I also got to meet the manager of the Tucson Mall's Game Days as he came in to play L5R with Hat. Nice guy. I did mention I gamed with the "Dice Chicks" which he found amusing.... He wants to see the t-shirts. I wish he ran the Park Place Mall store.... I might actually enter the mall for something other than the movies if he was closer. I also got a sample deck for the new BSG collectible card game that will be coming out next month..... That should be a fun game once I get a chance to figure out the rules.

Today my Reaper order came in (Reaper is out of TX while Iron Winds is out of OH, I figure with ground shipping I'll get the other minis on Monday.) That gives me 13 of the 20 minis I bought. I also read this Pallidium Press release via [livejournal.com profile] filkertom and decided to pop by Hat's again a pick up a few more Rifts books since I couldn't justify to myself $50 for a art print, but I could justify a few more Rifts books since Hat has said he'll be doing an order on Monday to replace the books I've bought and Kevin would still get some money. (I've met Kevin Siembieda several times at Cons. He's always been a very nice gentleman, unlike so many of the other gaming folks I've met (don't get me started on Gary Gygax) and I would hate to see him loose the Robotech licence even if I'm probably never going to play the game again.)

But all in all it's been a good week and I've gotten a lot of neat stuff for less than $120. I'm definitely happy with this week's purchases.
