More gaming happiness!

OK, so I went to UTC today to get lunch at Steak Escape (mmm... meat...), and it turns out Game Keeper is still open. They're going out of business, so I kind of thought they'd be gone by now and was surprised they were still open, so I asked and they said they might be around as long as until April. Yay! In the meantime the sales continue unabated, so I bought a few things from my game wish list at 40% off:

I'm leery of buying more games in case anyone is actually buying this stuff for me for, say, Valentine's Day ({hint hint}) or something, but I can't resist these prices - I'm hoping for a 75% off sale before they run out of the things they have left that I want! (I may need to make a daily trip to make sure, especially on a few ones that they had a good supply of - Carcassonne, Apples to Apples, Jenga, dominoes, that chess set, and Risk if the one I have back home is incomplete.) I'll keep the list updated just in case. Besides, they're already out of quite a few of those games by now (Strange Synergy, Dork Tower, Fluxx, Falling, etc., all of which I've seen there before and aren't there now), so there's ample opportunity to feed my gaming habit (which I believe I caught from thomasmMyke - I'm a games whore now, too! Damn you!).

Huh, last month they were telling everyone they'd be closed by the end of February. The Apples to Apples boxed set is nice; Ken got me one for my birthday. I was only mildly tempted by "Stoner Fluxx," though it was good for a laugh. I couldn't find anything else interesting, which made me kind of sad. As someone there said, "Pretty soon this mall is going to be nothing but cell phone kiosks." The Discovery Channel store became all foofy and New Agey rather than sciencey, and then left... Game Keeper is leaving... no more bookstore... what's the point? Man, am I tired of Westfield malls. And their stupid "The things that Westfield do" ad campaign. WTF does that mean?

Re:
Myke got Stoner Fluxx but we haven't played it yet. I just played Apples to Apples at a party a couple of weeks ago and wanted to get new cards, so the crate would be good because it has the first expansion. And ditto on the cell phone kiosks - it's so sad. I also miss the Museum Store - man, they had neat stuff in there.

Re: Gaming ho' (WAS) Re:
IMPNSHO? The version I saw was the crate, which was the base set plus the first and maybe second expansion.

What's Zendo?
