This game just doesn't move. Very low price for at least the components.

This has been on the daily deal or on sale multiple times this year. They should just randomly ship the game to customers for free. They are never going to sell them

Have you played it? There might be a reason...or this might be the best buy out there. I would love to play it once.

Appears to be because regardless of the components, most reviewers appears to think the game itself is just awful.

Yep. None of the reviewers liked the game. It seems to be essentially a roll-and-move with optional questy-stuff. But the optional stuff isn't really worth doing. AFAICT, anyway. Not going to buy it to find out

If they made it lower, I might just buy it and salvage some of it's components. It will join my piles of random plastic minis and wooden cubes!

I've heard that it looks great, but the game play is terrible. I'd love to see an amateur designer take on the challenge of coming up with a new rule set that makes the game fun. I'd buy a copy if I knew there was a cool variant out there. It would almost be like the ultimate print and play game.

I was fortunate enough to pick up a copy several months ago for about $50. angry

Thought I had discovered a bargain.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Furthering the irony is that because the box is so large and so heavy they can't just give it away as it would make orders need larger boxes and be considerably heavier.

Last year at Dicetower Con Tom Vasel paid someone a dollar to take it. There is no disputing this game is horrible.

Every time I go into Miniature Market I see the same stack of I Am Vlad games sitting on the 50% off shelf. However, that's still never tempted me to buy it. It really is too bad there isn't even anything good to salvage out of that steaming pile of game. cry

This reminds me of a particular import video game shop back in the day that would quietly ship copies of the Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game to customers to get rid of their stock.

It would be neat if someone reworked this game. There's apparently plenty of cool components to do SOMETHING with.

This is actually on sale for $10+$8.25 shipping on FunAgainGames.com

Less than $20, is it worth it?

I have been wondering this as well. Maybe as a primer game or for my younger kids that do not need complex.

A big box of nothing. Many better gateway games for younger kids.

I missed that part. Had the audio on low when watching so it was hard to hear.

This is what I have been trying to convince myself of. I hate to let a good deal get away but also hate getting stuck with a crappy game. Thanks

I vote King of Tokyo for a kid-friendly gateway game.
