[shopping] What have you splurged on recently?

So many excuses follow:
I read a nice review of the revamped Curse of Strahd adventure, and since it his my sweet spots of Levels 1-10 play only, and fits within other D&D 5e games limiting play to that level and since I never had the 5e Curse of Strahd Book (except the D&D3.5e Return to Castle Ravenloft), and also, since Amazon is offering a discount, I just had to splurge.

So the "Curse of Strahd Revamped" boxset just arrived.
Sadly, it is too big a box. Too much dead space inside.
Not egronomic in design. The map is so useful though.
Pity. Sending it back to Amazon. :-(

Amazon packaging is an utter farce. I got the complete re-imagined Battlestar Galactica on Blu Ray on Monday and the box it was sent in was three times the size of the Blu Ray packaging!

So of course, when I'm not running things I acquire game stuff hand over fist. From the left...

The Black Hack Classic Monsters - for you when you absolutely, positively have to run that D&D module from your youth one day and want the proper monsters. Lovely books and a cut-price Kickstarter

Doors to Elsewhere, Sanctum, Vermissian Black Ops and Burned and Broken - a slew of juicy new supplements for Heart, a game I don't have (yet) but I really really REALLY need to run some Spire/Heart next year,

The Great American Witch - a very prompt Kickstarter in the end, and a very compelling concept for a PBTA-esque game. Ran it at Furnace and it could be a good campaign game,

Part-Time Gods (and supplements) - A total shot in the dark from a seller on Facebook. On the basis that it cannot be anymore frustrating than Scion with a similar concept. Arrived today - at a glance it has a very 90s feel for a game from the 2010s
