After getting the latest email newsletter from Wayland Games, I decided that I should treat myself to something for Christmas, and the Firefly Board Game looked like it would do the job nicely. With postage the game was going to cost $91.00 from Wayland, but my PayPal account only had $56.00 in it, and Wayland didn’t seem to want to accept split payments so I searched the web for local options. Heroes For Sale had it for $114.95, pick up only from their store in the city, inconvenient and over priced.
Seeing as it was a Gale Force 9 produced game, I figured I’d give Battlefront a try, and they do indeed stock the game, at a very reasonable $65.00, with postage taking it to $71.00. Add to cart. Checkout. Purchase.
For once Battlefield looked like they would be the cheapest option, and being NZ based, should have no problem delivering before Christmas.
But then there was the ominous absence of a confirmation of order email. And being the weekend, my customer support query will go un-answered until Monday at the earliest. Hopefully Battlefield will come through for me and I’ll have myself a very happy Christmas.
