"A Book should serve as the Ax for the frozen sea within us."-- KAFKA
I paid less than $40 by going in with a buddy on a T-Hammer order. Now that I've played it, seen firsthand the beauty of the board and quality of the components, I'd have paid double and not felt robbed.
With the inclusion of Tactics Cards in the PS Games (Pro Ludo) version, this is almost the same game as Battle Line for half the price (€8.60 from online stores). Its also cheaper than any of the Kosmos 2 player games, though the components are not as good.
