During this weeks #BoardGameHour twitter discussion we want to look at one of the most addictive parts of the board gaming hobby, buying games.. We want to cover things like exclusives and promotions and how much they effect your decision to buy as we as you overall purchasing habits.

This is aimed to cover buying online, in stores, crowd funding & at conventions etc

Your "The Buying Game" questions are:

Q4: What sort of promotions/exclusives/discounts are most desirable to you? What could tip you over the edge to buy a game?#BoardGameHour
