First thing that came to mind is offering the option to not get the base game in a deal for expansion sets. Given that prices are often in line with Amazon, I can't rationalize buying from Massdrop and getting a game I already own in addition to the expansions that I'm interested in purchasing. Especially considering shipping costs, it's a rarity that a deal is worthwhile vs a more affordable competitor. I don't mind waiting awhile for delivery, and would love to spend my money with Massdrop over bigger shops like Amazon, so anything you can do to maximize your discounts is greatly appreciated.
Edit: Also, any chance we can get some RPG deals? Like FFG's Star Wars titles (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force & Destiny)? I'm definitely playing more RPGs than board games in the past few months.

Thanks for the suggestion and support! Often times the limiting factor for bundles depends on whether or not the vendor is physically capable of it, but for those vendors that are able we will be looking to feature that on a more consistent basis.
As for the RPGs, I've made a poll (https://www.massdrop.com/vote/Role-Playing-Games) and added the games that you mentioned below, please add anything else that you would want to see! I've also added the Star Wars titles to the spreadsheet. Please share it within the community so that we can see whether or not other people would like to see them on Massdrop. Thanks!

Thanks for your hard work, Henry! Love the idea when possible to fork drops into (Base Game + Expansions + Unique Bonus Items) and (Expansions + Unique Bonus Items).
Highly recommended to bundle in unique accessories or bonus items when possible -- e.g. game inserts and storage solutions (from Broken Token, Go7 Gaming), sleeves, limited edition cards or items, etc. This definitely makes the drop unique and more fun vs. just buying individual pieces from Amazon, etc.

Paint sets are some things that we would love to add to the lineup! My biggest issue is which to go after, I just got back from Japan where they all love Mr. Color and I'm starting to understand why. Though I have not seen the Zombicide Paint kits until now, I've added them all to the list.

Great another massdrop getting messed up by this guy. If Henry is in charge it will ship a week late with no communication on why.

Thanks for your hard work, Henry!
I think the problem with the RPGs is the same as the problem with Board Games, and even Mechanical Keyboards. It's the fact that the primary consumers will already have the basic items, and the fact that the really sought after items will be questionable drops, either from the manufacturer willing to give sizeable discounts, or from the perspective of hitting MOQs.
Apocalypse World (and games powered by the Apocalypse). Fate Core (and games powered by Fate Core). Savage Worlds (and again, games powered by Savage Worlds). Other indie and lesser well known games. I'd love to get some Warhammer in here too... both from a miniatures standpoint, and an RPG standpoint. Same with Iron Kingdoms.
I personally have a lot of these in PDF (started to run out of physical room), but now that I have a bit more tolerance for that, and have done some remodeling, the prices have become insane for physical copies when I wasn't looking. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I doubt it.
Just food for thought.
