Does anyone know if this expansion has been officially released in the UK, and what the RRP is? I couldn't find any info on the Queens games site.

I saw it listed on an OLGS, and they state RRP is £29.99 and were selling it for £27.89.

This seems extremely expensive, only £10 less than the original game. As it is not listed anywhere else I was wondering if they were taking advantage of getting it early; especially as I see it on BGG for $18-22.

I like Escape a lot, but if that's the true price I think I'll pass.

I think the other stores will be getting it next week too. I'm sure they'll be cheaper than the other price you mention but a RRP of £29.99 is serious overpriced.

And oh yes it is way overpriced for what you get.

What are Queen Games up to.

Thanks for the info.

Hopefully it'll see some big discounts in future as £15 seems about right for what's in the box. I can't see that they would sell that many at £27+ for a light game that already costs over £35 (£39.99 RRP) for the core set.

Although it's not an apples to apples comparison, I got Farmers of the Moor for £13.99 and Mage Knight Lost Legion for £25 - and both felt like much batter value than this.

I'd imagine the Quests expansion will be the same price. What a shame.

boardgameguru have it for £24.99 (here)

Don't think we'll find it much cheaper than that (outside of a sale). Crazy price considering what you get in the box.

Queen Games generally have great quality products but their pricing is starting to become a major question mark.

I for one will pass on this (a RRP of £20 would have been more reasonable).

Still, plenty more games out there.

Sounds like shire games will be having it in this week. We will se what price they do. I must say that i am very surprised for the price of this expansion. If this is what you get for that price, no way will i be buying it. I was expecting about £18.99-£20.99 for this game.

At least Dick Turpin wore a mask.

Very disappointed by the pricing. I've been waiting for the expansions - am not sure the game has legs without them - but I expected a lot less than this, price-wise.

Shame. One to wait for the bargain bin. Can't help but think it's short-sighted by the publishers. There really is not enough new stuff here to justify the price; especially when I see it's available in the US for LESS than the same $ price. Ouch.
