Or Best Offer â€“ NOT!!!
I found on eBay the expansion set to the Doom: the Board Game - Doom: the Board Game Expansion. The person is selling the game for $38.95, one dollar less that Fantasy Flight Games, the game publisher, plus $15 for shipping. He also provides the option for or best offer.
Someone needs to explain to the seller what or best offer means. I saw that there were some previous offers, which were declined, but I could not see what they were. My offers started at $25 and ended $30, and I still did not get the best offer. That left me wondering what is that guysâ€™ understanding of or best offer, because if his minimum for a best offer, for the game, is couple of dollars under his buy now price, than how does his minimum fall in the concept of â€œor best offerâ€. For a best offer to be worth anything to someone there has to be some noticeable difference between the selling price and what the acceptable best offer could be, and not a fraction from the selling price.
If the minimum is so close to the manufacturerâ€™s price, why not just get the product from the manufacturer? That way the product is guaranteed and the warranty is valid.
On another note, I noticed that Fantasy Flight Games has published a StarCraft board game. Pretty sweet. :)
