      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Happy And Sad: Mine For $5

3 posts in this topic

Went back to my hometown for Memorial Day Weekend, with my first chance to bomb around town for a couple years. My dad was driving my mom, my wife and me around town to see the changes since I last played tourist, and the ladies kept wanting to stop at all the yard sales people were having.

Finally,  my dad stops at one. And on a nice display rack by the family's garage is a still-shrink-wrapped copy of Beowulf, for $5. YES! I pay for that and a pair of brand-new jeans my wife found, and while pulling out the money my wife asks the 50-something lady if I tried to haggle on the prices. I said "No" because I was already getting a great deal on the game. Hearing that, the lady tells how the game came from her daughter's store, "The Game Zone," which she had to close down this year.

 

The Beowulf game was the last one she had left for sale. Everything else had been sold before I got there. So I got a great deal on this game, but missed out on a bunch of Fantasy Flight Games stuff as well as some war games and Euros. But I do feel worse for the lady who had to close her game store down. Sad that the economy is indeed hitting our hobby.

 

My hometown is Alma, Michigan by the way...

 

And my first go-round with Beowulf was quite enjoyable...

I hate to hear about game stores going under, especially in Michigan!  Lord knows anyone involved with the automotive industry can use some levity / entertainment right now!
