  Warhammer Invasion Core Set & AGoT Secrets & Spies In Stock Tomorrow - JLA Archives Price Increase Coming Soon - Razor Ink Vault Back In Stock
We are expecting two new Fantasy Flight products to arrive tomorrow.

The first is the new Warhammer Invasion Core Set. We had originally expected these to arrive next month. If you haven't placed your order yet, we do have extra Core Sets still available for just $29 each.

Each Core Set includes 220 cards representing 4 different factions, a rulebook, 35 resource tokens, 60 damage tokens, 4 burning tokens, and 4 player boards - everything needed for two players to play.

We also expect to receive A Game of Thrones Secrets & Spies chapter packs tomorrow. Secrets and Spies is the fifth chapter pack in the King's Landing expansion.

In addition, players can look for Ser Osmund Kettleblack, Littlefinger, Varys, and Qyburn. You can still order Secrets & Spies chapter packs for $9 each or $44 by the 6-pack.

If you are planning to place a pre-order for Rittenhouse's upcoming Justice League of America Archives set, please remember that tomorrow is the last day to order and take advantage of our very best prices!

As always, customers pre-ordering multiple cases receive all relevant case incentives for free!

We posted information last Monday on how to get a free set of promos from Razor if you pull an Inkworks redemption card from a Razor Ink Vault box. At the time we were sold out of Ink Vault boxes, but we have since restocked this hot item. Each box includes one non-sport trading card box plus 3 autograph cards. Boxes are $51 each.

  L5R Glory of the Empire, Path of the Destroyer Starters, & Other OOP Boxes Back In Stock!
We've just restocked several recent Legend of the Five Rings products that are now out of print!

We haven't had any L5R Glory of the Empire booster boxes for sale since July. We have a few boxes available now for $157 each.

We also have a very limited number of Glory of the Empire starter boxes available now for $58 each.

Less than a month ago, AEG released its L5R Path of the Destroyer expansion. We've had no problem keeping boosters in stock, but the manufacturer sold out of starters almost immediately upon release. Since they've been nearly impossible for us to find, we're excited to have them back in stock again. They are $58 each. Starter sets (1 Scorpion, 1 Spider, 1 Unicorn deck) are $37 each.

We've also restocked all of these tough to find CCG boxes recently:

  Great Deals On Yu-Gi-Oh Blister Boxes!
From time to time you might see an item on our web site listed as a "blister box" or a "blister booster box." Many of you may already know that a blister is simply a pack that has been mounted on a piece of cardboard for retail display purposes. Because blisters aren't usually boxed in the colorful hobby packaging that most customers are used to seeing, they often go unnoticed, ignored, and misunderstood. Oddly enough, they often contain some of the best deals!

Take a look at these great Yu-Gi-Oh blister deals:

Regular Strike of Neos boxes sell for a minimum of $60 though we have seen them selling for much more recently. We have Strike of Neos blister boxes, which contain 20 packs, for just $34. So, you can pay $2.50 or more per pack, or you can buy a blister box and pay $1.70 per pack!

We are selling regular Gladiators Assault boxes for $54. But we have Gladiators Assault blister boxes in stock for just $33. Again, you get just 4 fewer packs and save $21!

And we've seen regular Tactical Evolution booster boxes selling for $60 and up recently. We've got Tactical Evolution blister boxes in stock for just $33!

These aren't the only blisters you will find on our site, but we think they are some of the very best deals at the moment.
