I got this email from MiniWarGaming and I had to laugh. It is an advertisement for shopping for Valentines Day. The best part is how it is written. I really got a chuckle out of that and enjoyed the 'thought' so much that I am copying it to my blog.
This is the email I got from them, and it is true, they are running a sale on Battleforces:
Hey, Mike. Are you looking for that perfect Valentine's gift for your significant other? Can't figure out what to get her (or him)? Forget chocolates, flowers, and perfume - all those say are "I only bought you this because it is Valentine's day!"
Instead, show her how much you care by buying something that you would really want to keep yourself. Something that says, "Let's spend more time together assembling and painting miniatures!" Something that says, "I love you." This weekend, all that is possible with our super-awesome 40k Battleforce and Fantasy Battalion 25% off Valentine's Day Sale!
All 40k Battleforces and Fantasy Battalions will be marked down to 25% off of the normal retail price.
This sale starts tomorrow, Friday, February 11th and ends on Monday, February 14th (at noon Eastern time).
I'm a 30-something gamer who's been involved in gaming for many years, in fact for over 25+ years in a variety of games, and have shifted from RPGs to mainly table top wargaming. I do still participate in an online version of GURPS RPG with friends around the USA, as well as playing some games on the computer.
Currently I am also expanding into running Warhammer 40K tournaments and playing 40K competetively, continue to expand our game club and network, and just enjoy life.
