I'm going to pass for now. I like to wait for some reviews from geek buddies before I buy a new game. I have an insane stockpile of great games that I don't play enough. Even if it does take another year for copies to be easily available, I'm OK with that.

I would love to but at MRSP it seems pretty steep. Any idea on when the price might go down, I'm assuming when supply meets demand?

Unless I find an infinite ore cash loophole to justify paying MSRP, I think I'll stick with my human farming game.

Coolstuff just lost a little coolness.

In their defense, most of the online retailers either don't have it in stock, and even then still list the price at MSRP or even more. So CSI is just matching what everyone else does. And still, it's not like they are selling it for MORE than MSRP which many of the game stores are.

Mayfair (the publisher) doesn't allow their games to be sold online at any significant discount.

What many online retailers offer is free shipping on any Mayfair game. But at that price, you're practically into free shipping territory anyway.

SOLD OUT

The secondary market is probably gonna go through the roof until a reprint happens.

90$ is a steal!

Here on a rock in the middle of the ocean the game costs 148$.

CSI sold this for ~$80 bucks few days ago then went out of stock. Got 50 or more copies out of no where just to sell at MSRP. While CSI can do wants it wants....losing its coolness in terms of customer service.

If you want the best price then pre-order it.

Otherwise, learn to deal with market forces.

What you described is not "customer service". Seeing as how they moved 50 copies at msrp no sweat, it seems like a good business decision, which is what csi is, a business.

I've got a tracking number for my long-awaited pre-order through CSI, so I'm content at least. Wish I could have been playing already with all the time off work, but there were plenty of other good games to fill the void

Wow...so many come out to defend CSI and attack others if they make any observations or provide thoughts that negatively reflect CSI. Not sure why this is the case.

For all CSI lovers.....calm down. I am not trying to change your opinion and don't expect you to attack folks who view things differently than you. I am sharing my thoughts the way I see it and my experience with other online retailers.

To me it is and I am sure many others agree. Each have there view points and it is subjective. I am not trying to change yours but don't expect you to dismiss others. I have seen make other online retailers like TimeWellSpent, GameSurplus, BoardandBits (before they went down recently) not resort to such practices and hence a differentiating factor in terms of customer service for me. This might not be the case for you which is fine.

I'm not sure the point of this comment. Obviously they'll completely sell out in no time. And if people are willing to pay that price, can we really say that it's the wrong price?

The reprint is due to be done in late January.

I'm glad I went for it and ordered from CSI yesterday while they still had some stock. I don't see it getting considerably cheaper any time soon. It's a steep price, but it seems clear that it's a LOT of game.

$90 bucks for a what I'm seeing pictured in the components shots...that's ludicrous.
