SpielDeal started out as an experiment to see if a DealNews-style website might be useful to the boardgaming community. My concerns were two-fold: is this a resource with enough of its own voice, that is, information that is not just cribbing off other sites; and, would there be enough traffic to make it interesting to readers? For the former point, I think it is best to give over to the Hot Deals forum at BoardGameGeek. For the latter, well, it's a lot of work to ping fifty or sixty sites every day looking for deals! I hope that folks had fun reading, and that we saved a few dollars here or there, but it is time to bring it to a close. See you at BGG.CON!
