Coolstuff is starting up their next sale and it's got a bunch of good deals in there. I'm kicking myself for not holding out longer on Robinson Crusoe because this is definitely less than I paid (and I still haven't opened it).

RC looks to be the old edition.

It is the ZMan version, CSI will not get the updated Portal version till November 9.

My Village is a pretty good dice drafting game.

Is the Portal version considered superior?

I don't think the Portal version is out yet, so there's not a lot of weigh-in. What I've heard about it is:

-Square box with new artwork
-Specially shaped meeples
-Thicker individual player boards
-An extra scenario

But based on CSI's website, this version is also $4 less than the new version.

EDIT: Corrected the price difference. Was looking at the wrong game

Just for the record there are not meeples in the the game,only the resources are now going to be custom cut wooden pieces. The player tokens are still discs but they now come with stickers to apply.
Also the rule-book and most of the cards have be re-written to be more easy to understand.

Actually just $4 less. My guess is that it's going to fall a lot more before they clear it out, maybe down to $30 or less.

Anyone else think the new RC artwork on the box is atrocious compared to the old version? All the other improvements aside, I am much more apt to pick up the previous version just because the box incentivizes me to play the game more.

I'm surprised no one has commented at the heavy discounting on SeaFall already. Ouch.

$42.99 on sale, normally $52.99 ($79.99 MSRP)

Is this one on the fast track to be the most disappointing release of 2016?

Anyone think My Village is worth it for someone who already has a lot of games? If it's just ok if rather pass but if it's pretty good I'll bite icon this deal.

Not really surprised. Everyone has panned it even the people who like *everything*.

I wouldn't say everyone. The game does feature an odd mix of Euro and AT mechanics that I think appeals to a limited audience.

Check out some of the earlier walkthroughs that will tell you if it is in your wheelhouse. I imported it from Germany before any anouncement that it would come to the USA because I found the gameplay compelling. It has a dice pool draft worker placement with several legitimate paths to victory.
