Another CCC alert that I can't afford right now, hope someone can make use of this. They seem to have an expansion cheap too.

If you plan on getting the expansion as well, it's cheaper to get the double deal from boardgameguru:

Wrong, ignore this.

Thank God I find this game terribly dry and doesn't excite me in the slightest because it is a great price.

There's only one double pack left. Also, after delivery of minimum £7.50 (unless you're willing to give your time and money to get to Brixton), it works out cheaper on Amazon.

Link for the lazy: Eclipse on Amazon UK

[edit] Currently works out a pound cheaper on Gameseek for the base and expansion: Eclipse / Expansion. Delivery is £3.99 but it won't show you that unless you have an account.

Oh wow, I didn't check the shipping costs, I just assumed it would be something slightly more sensible blush

To be fair, that is pretty sensible - shipping is expensive, and those two boxes are quite big.

I think you could probably do it for £5.50 or £5.90 (I forget which) with My Hermes, but they use a better and faster courier. It would cost double that with Royal Mail.

Unfortunately, shipping costs have rocketed in the last 5 years or so, and that makes bargain hunting, trading, etc much less worthwhile.

Tempted by this, I have been looking at Eclipse from afar for a while and 30 quid off is a good saving. That said 40 quid is still a lot of money! Has this been reduced in this way before? If it happens every few months i will probably wait!

Might be better to get this for the extra tenner to get the mini pulsar expansion. I'm not sure you can get that anywhere now for less...

Wow... cheers for pointing me at ebay! I noticed an auction for Eclipse + Expansion with 12 hours to go and put an idle £50 bid in, thinking it would go for £60 plus - and I only went and won the auction! Used copy, but under £50. Thanks Dan!

Ha. I was looking at that but forgot to out a bid in myself. It ended by 20 mins. That eBay deal was amazing for the expansion and base at 46 quid. The custom storage he did also looks good.

Enjoy it

I plan to. The storage thing is a cool bonus. I hope it works as well as it looks. It saves me getting some plano boxes.

Pfft. Fine. I updated my games list with all the games I can remember that I own. I know I've missed a few, but my games aren't all in one place.

You'd better take a look at my games list Dan, since I went to all this effort!

Based on your list you should probably start playing some before you get any more

Oh and I "preordered" state them until they are in my hands. And I'm always right.
