Our Closing Down Sale Continues

Posted by Barbara C on 13 February, 2020 0 comments

Thank you to all those who have ordered from us over the last few days, and thank you for your patience. With the huge volume of orders, it has taken longer than usual to process and ship. We are almost caught up so orders placed yesterday will be sent today.

We've gone from over 600 titles in stock to less than 400! We have a lot left to clear though, and there are still some really great games at insane prices.

Afternoonified Games Emporium is Closing Down

Posted by Don B on 09 February, 2020 0 comments

We are closing down and have lowered all of our prices by 25% to try to clear as much stock as possible. These prices are at or below cost (for many items, well below cost). If you look at Board Game Oracle you will see that we have the lowest price from any Australian retailer on most of the items we have in stock. 

if there is something in our range you think you might want to get – that game you have long wanted but could not quite afford or that Christmas present or birthday gift for your crazy board gamer friend or relative – now is a great time to get it.

Clearance Sale Highlights - Family Strategy Games

Our current clearance sale presents an opportunity to grab some great games at prices you will not find anywhere else in Australia. All current stock is discounted but to help you find some particularly interesting bargains I'm posting a series highlighting particular games.

There is a concept in modern gaming of "game weight". Heavy games are games that are typically quite complex, typically take more than 120 minutes to play, require some serious effort to understand, take 30-60 minutes to explain and a few plays to see the successful strategies. Lighter games are less complex, can typically be played in under an hour, and can be explained in 15 minutes or less.  This set of games fall on the lighter end of that rating scale, so even though they are still strategy games they are particularly suitable for new players and are sometimes referred to as Family Strategy Games or Gateway Games.
