Thought Amazon had a policy if something dropped in price within 14 days they would refund the difference? Recall many doing it before. Just have to contact there customer service.

Amazon does adjust your purchase within so many days after a price drop of that product. Just contact a customer service rep. My wife has done it quite often.

I seem to recall they stopped that policy earlier this year. Your best bet now is if you have a credit card with a price match guarantee.

So, I checked triple camel that this was just a few bucks more than their alltime-low price, and I decided to pull the trigger. But I have to admit that after all these deals popping up lately, I'm starting to get a bit skeptical.

I decided to order it because it looks like a nice game that I'd enjoy, and it's supposed to be going out of print, so the price is only supposed to be going up from here on out. But is that always what happens to popular OoP titles? Could I be duped by the hype and the price will actually drop much more before it rises?

I still have a few days to cancel the order.

Add to Cart button is still there but it says it's no longer available if you try to add it. I might have gotten one of the last ones.

It depends on the game, but with a lot of these, they just won't be available any longer. This seems more like the ones that just go up because 1) it's a licensed property with a small but devoted fanbase, 2) it's an "I like it, but I can get that later" game (due to the high price) though it's now going away, and 3) it'll probably be reimplemented but with somewhat different rules (read: too different to satisfy some) and a new theme, so there's a "I always wanted to play the original" once the new implementation comes along.

Heck, if you read reviews of Forbidden Stars, a lot of them talk about how it reimplements a lot of the mechanics from Starcraft which is one of those games where it went out of print and the game went up in price and stayed there (and the expansion is even more expensive than the game).

It probably won't ever be printed again because it's an FFG/Games Workshop game, and they've just dissolved their partnership. This means FFG can no longer use any of the Games Workshops IP. This is why Chaos in the Old World, Space Hulk Death Angel, Blood Bowl Team Manager, and all the other Warhammer games printed by FFG are rising in price, some ridiculously. At least, that's my understanding of it...

Have any of these "Due in stock" from Amazon sales worked? They had it for Fury of Dracula too. Did they actually end up with more or is it all wishful thinking for a cancellation.

Just got it. I canceled my previous order. It hasn't shipped yet since it's not restocked so it took me all of 30 seconds to buy the new one and cancel the old on.

I did the same thing, cancellation was not promised since the order was preparing for shipment, but about a min later I got an email confirming the cancellation of the previous order. Saved 14 bucks.

Short answer, yep.

Longer answer, this is a major toy maker pushing through it's inventory. We still have 4 months left in the licensing deal. There's no reason to think this won't ship or that it won't be in-stock through the Christmas season. Also keep in mind that the ending of a contract between FFG and GW means that FFG can't continue to sell product. But there may still be product in the distribution chain. FFG could deliver 100,000 units of Forbidden Stars to one of the big distributors on the last day of the agreement and we'd have that thing in stock at most local game stores for years.
