I did not know there was a Halo game like this, I might end up buying it as a gift for my older brother or something.

As for the question I could understand, every single game I have ever bought for my younger brother.

I know you can still find singles and - if you look hard enough - old booster packs of the old ActionClix game if you try hard.

Eh, a few years agos, my group were playing Eberron. At some point, one of the player of the group, in-between two adventures, said he want to buy a horse.

Next to what, the player announces that he get on his horse, then start parading proudly all around the city, waving at the people like a knight or a king.

To what the DM replied "You do realise you're in the city of STAIRS, right ? Your horse won't be able to get in the city, there are stairs everywhere."

It took us around half an hour to stop laughing and manage to get on with the game. And after that, we mostly travelled using either ships, train or teleport spell. XD

Buyer's remorse, eh?

I had a character level up right before one of Paizo's big multi-table events and felt my sorcerer was a little lacking in attack power, so I bought a Wand of Fireballs and took the Burning Palms spell.

Then I find out that practically every enemy in the campaign is immune to fire spells and the one that wasn't was fought in such close quarters that using the wand would've been more likely to cause a TPK than kill the enemy.

Ugh, I hate that. I've had a character who bought a flamethrower to fight some undead and learned too late that these creatures had such a high tolerance to fire that they were getting bonus damage to body-slam us. :p

On the other side of the coin, I once managed to lob a live grenade into a closing elevator that had a werewolf inside it. The blast by itself would hurt, but most werewolves we fought would survive the explosion. THIS TIME the werewolf was in an enclosed metal box where the blastwave couldn't escape the confines of t
