Buying Games on Impulse
Have you ever purchased games on impulse?
I have, and my first and only time was with #Disney Villainous. Found a used copy for around $10 off the usual price so I thought it was a no-brainer since it was so popular. My wife and I love Disney films so I figured she'd like it. Little did I know, this is what "like new" condition looked like but I decided to just take it off the owner's hands.
Well, this still remains one of the only games in my collection that hasn't been played. The only other one is #Agricola (Revised Edition). I'll be getting to these games as a part of the Weekly Challenge, so I'll be trying them out however way I can--solo, playing both players' sides, etc!
With that said, here are some questions:
- Have you ever purchased games on impulse? Which games are they?
- What typically triggers that impulse? (Sales, your favorite publisher/designer coming out with a game, hearing certain keywords like your favorite game mechanic, theme, etc)
- What combination of "your favorite publisher/designer" + "your favorite mechanic/theme" would immediately tempt you to make an impulse buy? (or at least, make you think about the game for weeks?)
I'll post my answers in the comments!
