Can both players use the same recorded game?
Yes, but a single recorded game can only be used once for each player.

Can it be a game against the computer?
No it needs to be a game with another human.

What about old games?
A previous boardspace game can be used for a half-price set but it needs to be a game that you participated in and it can only be used once.

Can I get more than one set at half price?
Sure get as many as you want (as long as the promotion is announced on the web site).
One unique game record per set.

How does evaluate if a game has been used before?
We use a "diff" program to compare games against others.

How long will this promotion last?
The promotion is starting in December of 2010.  There is no predetermined end date, but we will give it a few months at least.  If it starts to become too successful we will need to end it fast.  So don't wait!
