Re: [Amazon] Arkham Horror: The Card Game $29.98 preorder
This seems.... odd. Good find.

Unsure why FFG would for some reason discount a game that is so highly in demand....

Re: [Amazon] Arkham Horror: The Card Game $29.98 preorder
I think i preordered at $40, it looks like the price guarantee made my preorder cheaper.

I know...was thinking the same. I missed the preorder everywhere else and have been checking everywhere, like frequently. Saw this and ordered immediately, hopefully the price is honored.

I agree, very strange. It seems to be coming directly from FFG and not a third party reseller (many fake deals like that lately, especially from Chinese scammers using Canadian addresses). I ordered one myself.

That way, they get you $60 out of you instead of $40! laugh

I jumped on this earlier and ordered two. Note the fine print in the game description that one core is 1-2 players, it takes 2 cores to play 2-4.

Nice find. I pre-ordered from an OLGS for 79 cents more than this.

Re: [Amazon] Arkham Horror: The Card Game $29.98 preorder
This feels more like an ad than a hot deal. Same price as the LOTR LCG base set and other lcg base sets.

It's probably because I don't get it. I'm an optimist so I'm sure some kind soul will explain it to me. Is it because of "pre-demand"? Isn't it ironic that a hot deals forum contributes to hype-based jacking up of price?

Oh, this again.

The second core is for 3-4 players. You can play 2 just fine with 1 core.

Yep! That's exactly what happened for me. Was in for one preorder at 40, when the price dropped I upped it to two.

...as indicated by my second sentence. It may not matter for some, but in my game group a two player limit will almost never get to the table.

I think he was noting where you said "it takes 2 cores to play 2-4" which you probably meant as 3-4 judging by the first half of that sentence.

So much for Asmodee North America helping out the FLGS...between this and exclusives to big chains like Target, we see their statements were crap.

Thanks for letting me know. I almost missed that.

This player limit does make it hard for me to get into it, as my gaming group rarely has just two players.

What Asmodee games have been exclusive to target?

It is $3 cheaper than what I pre-ordered it for at CSI. Additionally, it is sold out at CSI, MM, and any other OLGS I've looked at, though I certainly could've missed it somewhere.

Assuming the 11/10 date that keeps being reported is correct, the only advantage the FLGS would have is they'll be receiving it before Amazon (reporting 11/15 shipping day). That doesn't seem like it should be true either, but I guess we will see.

I'd agree it's very strange - particularly when you account for ordering from another online vendor that charges for shipping.

Correct, it is a preorder. However, the deal for $29.98 is over and the price has increased from the price in the title of the thread.
