Il Vecchio is currently in the clearance section at Miniaturemarket for $25. Seems to beat all other offers currently available.

It's the price I bought it when it came out (special price deal direct from TMG). It doesn't bode well that it is on clearance so soon after coming out. As a side note, I've already traded my copy away. It was interesting, but nothing earth shattering and my group just didn't have enthusiasm for it.

I like it quite a bit. Different kind of game. Tiny bit of take that, as you can grab. Resource another player clearly wants, but it is only a little disruptive. Fun when a plan comes together and synchronizing your pieces is a big part of the game. Single moves each time minimize downtime.

This is a very good medium-weight game. I've played it a few times and, while there are no ground-breaking mechanisms, we had a lot of fun trying to control and anticipate the moves of the "middlemen" which travel around the board and allow players to collect tokens.

For those who like classic-style Eurogames, this is a deal.

Even before being labeled "clearance" at MM I believe it's been CSI's (and probably MM's) deal of the day several times. Definitely doesn't seem much interest in this title...

56 now! At least I could help one gamer find a good deal.

It's a decently ranked game here on BGG. Surprised there isn't more interest.

"may have" helped... no one here so far that's replied has indicated they picked up a copy today after seeing this thread

my geek buds that have rated it as well have given no lower than a 7

however I've yet to play it so can't buy it... plus I have a feeling $25 is not the bottom for this game whatever the reasons may be
