    My local board game shop has the RRP on all of the games, but then doesn't actually charge you that. They'll knock some money off or throw in a mini-expansion.

    Drives me mad. I just want to know the price.

    The word, "mentee." Its a lazy, made up term for those who can't be bothered to learn the vocabulary connections between "mentor" and "protege." I can't escape visualizing a baby with the head of a bull every time I hear it.

    I have never heard that word before. But you are right, it's dumb. What's next "protegor"?
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Yeah, it kind of assumes you're just going to buy stuff regardless of the price, and I'm sure there are people who are like that, but all it does is encourage me to shop elsewhere. Doing a fair bit of long distance road trips I've noticed this at convenience stores fairly often, and I will simply get gas and wait until the next stop which has prices for their merchandise.
