Mods I apologize if this should not be here, feel free to remove.

Edit: Apparently this is in french

Site lists it as 42.78 GBP. When I went to check out it dropped to 35.65 GBP. I don't know why, I think maybe because there's no VAT to the USA maybe? Cost of shipping to USA (west coast) GBP 4.95
Total cost shipped to USA = $70.52 USD

Free shipping within the UK

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atlantis-Rising-70850ZMG-Board-Game/...

A good price IMO for something OOP and almost impossible to find, particularly under $100. Not nearly as good as what it sold for when new in print, but if you're late to the bandwagon like me, it's probably the best you'll see for a long time until they decide to do a reprint, if ever.

Because it's over $100 everywhere else when you can find it? And OOP with supposedly no planned reprint.

Sure, but other than price and availability, how is it?

Thanks for the tip! I've been wanting this game for a long time but didn't want to pay $150 for it.

Did you notice that this game is in French? Maybe it's always in French. I have no idea, I've never heard of it.

If the normal market selling price for new is $105, and you find it for $70, that's $35 off the selling price. How is that not a deal? Sure the MSRP might technically be $50, but you'll never find it new for that price again unless a) it gets reprinted b) someone has a huge stockpile they flood the market with.

If you people aren't interested/don't like it, don't read the thread. Flag it if you think it's inappropriate and move along.

I don't think you meant to respond to me as I clearly agree with you.

nope I did not notice it's in French. Good catch. I can barely see the top text without my contacts. There's an English edition, but it's very hard to get. I guess no one wants the French edition.

The way it was worded it sounded as if you were saying "how is this a deal beyond being available?" My bad. Need another cup of caffeine apparently.

It's all good. I didn't want you to think I didn't appreciate you posting a great deal.

It's less of a great deal now that I found out it's the French edition, because amazon.ca has had it cheaper before. But I doubt most people want it in French. :/

I guess "everywhere else" doesn't include the BGG Marketplace?

Right on the game page itself there are multiple new in shrink English language copies for less than $100. ($59.99, $80, $85 and a couple at $89.xx)

Plus any sale through the marketplace gives 3% towards supporting our favorite community.

Also you need to keep in mind that asking price has nothing to do with market price. People can list at whatever they want but it doesn't mean anyone is really paying it. Despite all those $80+ listings, no one has ever bought a copy in the marketplace for more than $60 to date.

Even on ebay new copies are going for $75-$79, with only one sold at $99. Meanwhile used can be had for $40-$55.

Thanks for the link to the Boardgame Pricing Utility! I've not seen that before and it looks very nice and useful.

The last time I looked at the market place there were no English copies below $100. Some new listings must have come up.

Marketplace listings are dated. While there are two new ones up since just yesterday the ones for $89 were posted 1/11/14 and and 12/14/13.

I also see that someone grabbed the $59.99 one since I mentioned it so if nothing else this hot deal listing got at least one person a copy… from the marketplace.

Five places I always suggest checking before posting in the hot deals forum are:

Spielboy.com
BGG Marketplace
Amazon
BoardGamePrices.com
CamelCamelCamel.com
