dont get me wrong.. this game is fun solitaire game and my favorite zombie fix. plays great and only need short time commitment compared to othergames.. yet (apologies to Hermann the creator) while i love all the arts, the design and the gameplay, i cannot get rid of the feeling that i feel this game is overpriced .. maybe because of the component quality..

this game cost the same as Elder Sign , Terra Nova, martinique and cave troll (at my fav online store)..

so far this game is a bit better than Elder Sign though

One time, at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Jacksonville, but the nice one, not the one above the gas station, I ate 50 jalapeño poppers in two minutes. Everyone at the hospital was so impressed.

excellent addition, necessary, and overpriced for what is really in the box.

Perhaps if it contained Seafarers +5-6 player expansion + fishermen of Catan the price would be warranted.

I still bought it though.

The MSRP on this is $50, which is absurd considering how little you get in the box. There's no game board, no chits, no player markers (aside from the little scoring cubes), a handful of cards, four cloth bags, and a bunch of dice. On top of that, the dice are small and in some cases so poorly printed that you need a jeweler's monocle to figure out what the numbers are. One could easily argue that you'd be better off just getting the cards and using your own colored dice.

This is a great game. It moves quick and there is a lot subtle complexity but for the components that come with the game is $20-$25 really justifiable?

The price is too steep for the material you get inside, cards (not even so much of them) and a few cardboard element.

a great little game from VPG, a solitaire state-of-siege system that focused on castle defense from monsters. Fantasy setting with nice day/night phase. more tactical compared to other State-of-Siege system on VPG catalog..

yet this cute little game is way overpriced for its gameplay and its component value.. i dont think this worth $19 overall value. VPG should discount this game and put it as a starter SoS system

another great solitaire game but the game is overpriced for the components and the gameplay it provides.. however your mileage may vary in determining if this game is overpriced at $35

I'm not saying this game isn't great, but it could easily have just been 9 standard playing cards with a unique suit and a set of rules. Good game but really disapponted with what came in the box.

Torn with this one because the compontents are lovely, nice minis, nice shiney cards, nice boards.
There's just so little game in here.

The MSRP is $60, but you can get it online for $40. I just got this from a BGG market place buy for $30 shipped and I would not pay a penny more for it. You get 7 custom dice, a smallish board (that covers up the cool artwork) and some cards and cardboard player aids. The game is so-so, but still way overpriced for what's in the box IMO.
