I have been watching this at CSI for some time and ran across Atomic Empire today. I was not able to tell how much stock remained, but they still had it available about an hour back. Grabbed Macao also (that has been out of stock for some time at CSI as well).

This is my first post to hot deals, apologies in advance if there was a better place for this thread.

Sold!

Shipping was about $9 for me, but that's basically half off with shipping!

First time Atomic Empire buyer and scooped up a copy too. I wasn't aware of the deal through this thread but was informed from a fellow BGG'er.

Developed an interest after seeing the Rahdo's video.

I saw in a thread an offhand remark by a publisher or developer of the game who said something about people who keep submitting name corrections from "Merkator" to "Mercator" should stop because the spelling was intentional due to a copyright issue. He also said to ignore the prototype box art that had been posted.

I'm guessing that the image on Atomic Empire's site is of that box art.

Looks like Atomic Empire is using/linking to an older image file. According to an image file here on BGG, it is a prototype box cover, not the final cover.

Back up to $55.99.

I ordered mine at the time of the first price drop even though it was sold out. Lucky for me as they got more in stock.

It took almost a week for my shipping confirmation, but it is now on the way (tracking via fedex). I get the impression that they ship once a week for some reason. My order was in a "waiting" status for about 5 days.

I had not heard of Atomic Empire when I ran across the deal, so I checked them on the BBB site - A rating.

Ah, bummer. I was going to order it now that I got through the video walkthrough/review. Oh well, I have enough games to play. Hope everyone enjoys it.

I've been there a few times dating back to before the name change and move. I like their store plenty and the way they do business. It is unfortunately not conveniently located to me and when they moved, they got farther from the office. It is a shame because it is the only one in the triangle that I've actually liked.

You don't like The Gamer's Armory? Their new location is nice and spacious.

To be fair I have never been inside their store because I thought they were primarily wargaming.

They stock about twice as many wargames as other strategy games and/or family games. They have a decent selection, though, and a wonderful location and awesome staff. Good prices for a B&M, too.

I wish they'd actually stock more euros and strategy games, but if I order stuff through them it usually gets there within a couple days so that's pretty solid.

I might have to pay them a visit, then and see what they are about. Especially since Atomic is so far from me.
