Steam Powered: Holiday Sale 2013

Steam Powered: Holiday Sale 2013

Love games? Know someone who loves games? You still have time to gift yourself, or that someone special, a game from Steam. Steam is running their annual holiday sale right now so this is also a great last minute gift idea at a great price for your significant gaming other.

This sale works a couple of ways. First off, there are deals that are only good for twenty-four hours. There are also flash deals which are good for around eight hours each. Now the twenty-four hour deals will also be available an additional day (as yesterday’s deals) so in reality they are available for a full forty-eight hours. Then they have a general sales section.

Needless to say, the best deals are often in the time limited area. Right now (with 40 hrs left) Trine 2 is 90% off: originally $19.99 it is now only $1.99. The visuals for that game are pretty awesome. The game Contagion is also a good deal at 80% off the original price: it was $14.99 and is now only $3.74.

All prices in USD.

One of the great things about this sale is that they have games for the young, and young at heart. You are never too old to play a fun board game.

Angry Birds is very popular this year, and you will see a few of these types of games on sale with this deal. I have played Apples to Apples before and it was a lot of fun.

Well.ca: Board Games Up To 60% Off

Posted by on December 9, 2013 at 12:30 PM

Well.ca: Board Games Up To 60% Off

Well.ca has gift ideas on for up to 60% off. I took a look at the list and there are a number of good ideas on here for good prices. Most notable are a number of very popular games at a good deal.

My family and I play quite a few board games. I have always played board games as a child and almost can’t wait for my kids to get older to play some of the classic, more adult games I played as an adolescent, like Risk, Chess, Trivial Pursuit and more. But, there are also some new games out there that look really fun that I want to try.  I also really enjoy giving board games as gifts to families, because it is something everyone can enjoy.

Settlers of Catan game – was $30.99, now $26.34. I actually just bought this game from Well.ca. It is the same price right now at Amazon, but if you spend a little more here and you are a new customer, you can use the $10 off $40 coupon to save a bit of money on your entire purchase. This game sells for $45 at other stores.

Ticket to Ride game - was $55.99, now $47.59. This game is supposed to be very popular in Europe and looks like a ton of fun. Amazon sells it through a secondary seller (so you might not get free shipping) for $48 and Chapters for $59.95.

Game of Things game - was $42.99, now $36.54. I’ve played this at a party and it is hilarious. I haven’t wanted to shell out more than $40 for it, so I’m considering getting this now. Amazon sells it for $45.99 through a secondary seller.

Game of Thrones game – was $69.99, now $48.99. Based on the widely popular novel and series. Amazon sells this for a little more at $49.95 through a secondary seller and Chapters has it for $69.95.

Bananagrams – was $22.99, now $16.09 – this highly addictive game is travel-ready. Mastermind has it for $18.95, Amazon for $17.99 through a secondary seller.

Shipping is free on orders over $25 and if you are new to Well.ca, don’t forget to use our exmoosive coupon for $10 off $40, as I mentioned above.

Amazon Canada: I’ve Never Game Only $16.69

Posted by on October 31, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Ive Never Game Only $16.69

I had to blog this drinking game as I recently played a modified version of it and had an awesome time. Amazon has the I’ve Never… game: The outrageous game of truth on for only $16.69, was $20.89.

To tell the truth (and that is the name of the game) I played this game without a game. We still made it fun, but had a hard time sometimes coming up with questions to ask. Having an actual game with pre-printed questions is much easier, especially when you are drinking (since that is part of the game) and your brain isn’t working at full capacity.

I would love to get this game for my next party or dinner get-together. It makes a fun ice-breaker and you get to learn lots of juicy details about your friends. But, be warned, they’ll learn a lot about you. I have found that those with the most to tell are the ones who are the most willing to play the game, so I say game on!

Shipping is free when you spend $25 so add something small and get yourself free shipping.

Amazon Canada: Sale on White Mountain 1000pc Puzzles

Posted by on October 29, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Sale on White Mountain 1000pc Puzzles

Amazon Canada has a sale on White Mountain 1000 piece puzzles. The discount is around 30% off most of the puzzles and that makes these some of the best priced puzzles of this size I have seen lately.

This White Mountain Puzzles Birds of the Backyard was $16.66 and is now $11.49. It has tons of beautiful birds on it and is educational as well. My favourite type of puzzles are more holistic where you work towards one overall picture. This White Mountain Puzzles The Olde Skating Pond is a beauty and is on sale for $10.40 (originally $14.95).

Looking for a fun puzzle to do with your family? This White Mountain Puzzles Candy Wrappers would be my first choice because the subject matter is so yummy. Originally $16.95 it is now on sale for $11.99.

As for a price comparison: the cheapest 1000 piece puzzle I could find on Chapters was a $15 planets puzzle (which I bought). Most were several dollars above that. In our local games store my husband was looking at puzzles for me (as I am a puzzler) and he found the price for all 1000 piece puzzles was over $20 a puzzle. Usually they were around the $22+ range. These prices are very good for this size of puzzle.

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 50% Off Previously Played Games

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: 50% Off Previously Played Games

I am someone that doesn’t mind grabbing something used if it is still good and it will save me a bit of money, whether it be clothing, furniture, toys or electronics.  Why pay full price for something when you can get the exact same thing that was slightly used at a discount?  Right now at both Best Buy and Future Shop, all of their previously played games are on sale for 50% off.

The selection is going really fast with these video games, but since they do trade-ins every single day, new games will most likely be added daily.  Find games for Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, WiiU, PSP, NintendoDS and more, all of them at 50% off.

Video games are very popular with kids, but can be expensive.  This is the perfect way to grab something on their Christmas wish list without breaking the bank.

Here are a few of the great deals you will find:

The selection at both stores is dwindling fast, so if you see something you want, make sure you grab it while they still have it!

Both Future Shop and Best Buy offer free shipping for all orders of $20 or more.

Chapters Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Weekends

Chapters Canada Coupon Code: 15% Off Weekends

Chapters Canada had a pretty cool promotion back in August/September where you got 15% off your toy, baby item, house & home item, and paper purchase online on Saturday and Sunday. That offer expired the middle of September, but they brought it back as of October 5th.

Click here to shop @ Chapters Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 15offweekends
  • Discount: 15% off above sections ONLY on weekends
  • Expiry: 30th March 2014

I need to clarify a few things. This coupon is valid until the above expiry date, but it only works on weekends from Saturdays at 12:01 AM EST to Sundays at 11:59 PM PST. It will not work during the week. It also only works on full-priced items.  There is no minimum spend required with this offer, though they reserve the right to change it at anytime.

I recently bought this The The Planets 1000 piece Puzzle which costs $15.37 (part of Saturn pictured above). It is the cheapest 1000 piece puzzle I have found that still looks pretty attractive. I even bought it on a weekend! I wish I would have known this coupon was available again, because I could have got the puzzle for $13.06 instead. When I was looking at puzzles, one of my secret loves, I was pretty torn between the Planets puzzle and this Egyptian – Tutankhamun Mask 1000 piece Puzzle which costs $21.95 or $18.66 after coupon. The cheaper puzzle won, but now that this coupon is available I might also get this one.

Enjoy free shipping on purchases of $25 or more (excluding heavy or over-sized objects).

We keep any and all coupons for Chapters in the forum, so check it out before you make a purchase!

$20 in Hasbro Coupons on Popcorn Boxes

Besides shopping online with coupons codes or shopping in stores with printable coupons and mail in rebates, there is another way to save money.  A lot of products have great coupons right on their packaging to watch out for.  Right now, you can get $20 worth of coupons for Hasbro Games when you buy Orville Redenbachers gourmet popcorn.

Here is a look at the coupons you will get:

  • Draw Something Save $10
  • Jenga Tetris Save $5
  • Save $5 on any Hasbro game of $10+

This is the perfect time to pick up the popcorn because games are great Christmas presents to give.  You can get some movie night popcorn for yourself, and use the coupons to save on gifts or even games for yourself.

You will be able to find this popcorn at pretty much any of the local grocery stores, Walmart, some pharmacies, gas stations and anywhere else popcorn is sold.  The coupons will either be printed on the outside of the box or the inside, but the boxes will be marked so you can grab the right ones.

(Thank you to Mooser Charlene for letting us know about this deal!)

Steam Powered: 33% Off Civilization Brave New World – Now $20

Posted by on October 6, 2013 at 8:30 AM

Steam Powered: 33% Off Civilization Brave New World   Now $20

This is the first time since the release of the Brave New World expansion for Sid Meier’s Civilization V that it has gone on sale. For a very short time save 33% on the Brave New World expansion. Originally $29.99, the expansion is on sale for $20.09 USD.

My husband is positively drooling over this sale, and I am pretty sure by the end of the night he is going to buy it. He has played Civilization since before I met him, and he introduced me to the game. We now play hot seat as a team and have managed to win a few games on King level so far with the Gods & Kings expansion. I think my husband has watched every video and read almost every article about the new expansion, so you can imagine how excited he is.

Here are some of the new features:

  • New Culture Victory
  • New Policies and Ideologies
  • World Congress
  • International Trade Routes
  • New Units and Buildings
  • Nine New leaders
  • New Wonders
  • Two New Scenarios: American Civil War and Scramble for Africa

I doubt this will be on sale again till maybe, if we are lucky, Cyber Monday. If we are not lucky, then there is a chance it might be on sale for Boxing Day. The expansion was just released this summer, so finding it on sale is going to be pretty rare for now. If you want any of the other Civilization series or expansions, most of them are 50% off right now as well.

Any Moosers out there play Civ? Who is your favourite leader to play? I like playing Napoleon, but ever since they changed Stonehenge from a cultural bonus to a faith bonus he has not been as strong.

Chapters Canada: K’nex Toys 30% off

Posted by on September 19, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Chapters Canada: Knex Toys 30% off

One of my favourite childhood toys is on special right now at Chapters Canada.  Save 30% on all K’nex toys for a limited time only.

These were one of my favourite toys to play with as a kid and I still love them as an adult with kids of my own now.  When I was teaching, I had a huge box of them in my classroom and they were a very popular toy to play with.  I like them because they encourage creativity, problem solving and help with fine and gross motor skills.

Along with these K’nex sets, you will also save 30% on their tinker Toys and Lincon Log set which are also great toys. This K’nex super value tub that was $24.99 and is now $17.49 would make a perfect Christmas or birthday gift. My boys would love this Nascar Dupont transporter K’nex set that was $24.46 and is now just $17.46. They didn’t have any cool sets like this when I was a kid!

As for the cost of shipping, Chapters Canada offers free shipping for all orders of $25 or more.
