Black Friday has Been Underwhelming…

I made a post a few days ago about how birthdays have lot their magic. This is a similar post. Black Friday was kind of boring. There were a lot sales. Don’t get me wrong. Yet I felt like none of the sales matched up with what I wanted to buy. For example, I wanted to buy the new Mario Party Super stars. Well, all the deals involved pre-owned copies, which I couldn’t find any pre owned copies. I tried to get Jessica Studio Ghibli films. The deal was buy 2 get the 3rd free. However, it was hard to find a 3rd one within my budget. I did give my mom some Christmas ideas based off those buy 2 get 1 free which was good.

I wanted to buy studio lights for my house. The deals for the ones in my budget were not great (like knocking 1 down from 80 bucks to 72 bucks.). The $999 one was marked to like 600 but I wasn’t ready to spend that money on a hobby. It was the same problem for a workout rack and bench. The deals on the ones I was comfortable spending just were not great.

Since Black Friday in person actually started on Friday this year, I didn’t really get to go shopping. I worked until 10 tonight. By the time I got to Walmart, there was nothing worth noting except the sale on Fire Emblem and Zelda BOTW, both I which I already owned.

Books A Million and Barnes and Noble completely let me down. I wanted to clean them out of some mangas, but they really aren’t running any good sales. Target probably had the best deal with some of their board games. They have Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan half priced. They have some other games on sale too that are worth checking out.

So yeah, there’s definitely deals to be had but a lot them were tough to make work out. I’ll be interested to see how the Cyber Monday sales go. Anyway thanks for reading and have a great night!

Virtual Game Night!

Tonight, as in here in a few minutes, Jessica and myself will attempt a virtual game with her uncle and aunt. Were going to be playing Letters from Whitechapel where 1 person plays as Jack the Ripper and 3 players play as detectives. We each own a copy so we will both have the board available to us. Outside of that, there’s always exploding kittens on our phone or even Jackbox games.

Let me know some fun family games that can be played over zoom/messenger. In June most of our game nights will be virtual like this so were open to some idea.

Anyway, thanks for reading and any suggestions. Have a great night everybody!
