Been watching this for a while (missed out on getting it cheap via Tesco clubcard) and now it's hit £20.

Downside is you'll need to wait a couple of weeks but probably worth it at this price?

Link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1616619686?tag=article-geekdo-21

Can also try Flubit, I'm still waiting on an offer from them.

Thanks for the heads up - 'purchased'. I've had this game in my Amazon shopping cart for a long while, waiting for the price to come down. Amazon's prices can fluctuate so there's no telling how long it will stay at this price.

Hmmm. I've been caught in Amazon's indefinite loop like this before. Took the money, only to refund three months later when they finally accepted that they'd never get the item.

Good price if they can honour it though.

A man walks into a butchers shop and asks how much for sausages.
"50 pence a pound, but we don't have any at the moment"
So he goes to another shop down the road and asks again how much suasages.
"3.50 a pound".
The man, exasperated by the difference in price exclaims "Down the road they're only 50 pence a pound!"
"Well why are you here then?" replies the butcher.
"Because they're out of stock".
"Well, when I'm out of stock my sausages are only 25 pence a pound"

Will be a great deal if they honour the price, but wouldn't hold my breath

I often wonder if it's worth buying to then sell on when the price inevitably goes back up.

I never bother as I'm always afraid I'll sell at a loss.

Good call on Flubit, ordered mine for £17.35. Worth a gander at that price for sure.

Cancelled my Amazon order and for the first time used Flubit.

Got a deal for £17.71 ... Awesome.

Should use that site more often.

Beware that sometimes they can claim they can order stuff even when they can't. Have been burned a couple of times waiting for an expected delivery date on flubit that eventually turned into an item unavailable. Meanwhile the price on Amazon has gone up. Still you take you chances.

I've tried posting the link in Flubit and I'm getting a message "Sorry, we don't accept this product"?

Thanks for the heads-up.

I've ordered from Amazon even though in the past offers like these have been auto-cancelled by Amazon after a few weeks of waiting. However, they have emailed with an expected delivery date of 7th September, which hasn't happened to me before on OOS items, so maybe this one will actually arrive.

Replace Co-Op with Train Station and you have why I buy 60% of my games from Amazon...

Thats crap. Hope mine doesnt get cancelled.

Maybe an influx of Flubit orders?

Do they regularly cancel orders? And do you get your 'demand' back?

flubit always cancels, I've ordered about 3 games from them and every time I get the mail - I'm not even going to bother anymore it sucks.

Those who have had their flubit order cancelled, can you confirm when your estimated dispatch was, and which merchant?

I am at 'awaiting dispatch' with delivery expected Thu 08 Sep ‐ Sat 10 Sep

Merchant is Fireworks Merchant Limited, which i think is Flubit's internal purchasing department who tend to source things from Amazon i think.
