On Amazon, it's suddenly $64. On Ebay, I see some copies have sold for $125.

Boardgameprices.com shows one Canadian online retailer that has it for $31. Every other store seems to be out of stock.

When did this happen? Has it always been hard to find?

I had it in my cart yesterday on Amazon for $34 dollars. While debating what else to buy to get the order over $35 for free shipping, it doubled in price. I'm guessing its Spiel des Jahres nomination had a great deal to do with it's sudden scarcity, though it's been at the top of the Hotness for a while now. I'm hoping this doesnt turn into the next Caverna or Dice Masters. I really wanted to get this to play with my wife.

Which does seem weird because yeah, Cardhaus and MiniatureMarket are both out of stock.
That's interesting. CoolStuff said out of stock last night. Oh well, buying it...

Edit Just confirming-my order went through. And it actually came out the same price I was about it get it for on Amazon, even with shipping. So yay. I'd rather order from Coolstuff

Weird. My guess is that they are pretty low. Even with 20+ copies in stock now, I wouldn't be too surprised if it sells out today.

It looks like http://timewellspent.org also has 5 copies in stock. But, they aren't showing up at boardgameprices.com either.

I have bought a French version of the game by mistake , it turn out that the whole game depends on the colors & numbers , so I download the English rules & there I have English version of the game .
What I mean that you can buy any version of the game from Canada , Italy, France or Germany , it doesn't matter . all you have to do is to download the English rules.

I just missed a chance to buy a copy from CSI. I hope that it will be reprinted soon. (I'm worried because the manufacturer is a small company)

Well, hurry up and get one from TWS (see my last post). I just checked, and they still have 4 left.

Alternatively, you could spend $322 for this one from Ebay:

I just ordered it from Amazon. I have played a demo copy several times and two day prime shipping means I get it for my next gaming session!

Amazon's price is now $36.06. Coolstuff is out of stock on their website but they are a seller on Amazon for the same as the Amazon price.

Amazon shows 1 in stock for $34.42+$3.99 s/h from CSI. The next cheapest is $59.99.

But, Amazon also shows that it can be bought from Amazon itself for $38.41 (qualifies for Prime), but it's backordered and won't be in stock until Aug 6th.

So, it seems that copies are being sent out to distributors slowly, and it's just enough to meet the demand at this time.

Less than two hours ago I grabbed the last copy off the shelf at my FLGS for $32. Feeling pretty pleased with myself.

TimeWellSpent games has 2 copies (International Edition) currently in stock at $28.99 (not counting Shipping).

I've ordered a couple of times from them, they are in Colorado, and have had a great experience each time.

Sold out at all 4 LGS here and all my favourite online Canadian retailers. Amazon.ca was $75+, not what I'm willing to pay for a game that retails for $35. Did one last search and found it in stock at a Canadian retailer for $35. Added 2 more games that I wanted, one that is OOS at all local retailers and 1 that is OOP and HTF.

Call J&J in Waterloo on their 1-800 line and they may have an extra copy in the back. Worth a try.

I was bummed to discover I had to have a copy after reading several reviews and then noting that none of the usual suspect had Splendor in stock. A quick web search by publisher SKU turned up this unknown (to me):

http://wethemeeple.co/splendor/

They are a new online retailer in Austin, Texas. So, I picked up the phone and called them and spoke to Hayden at length. He confirmed they have ~6 copies in stock. I ordered one. Check them out if you need a copy. While based in Austin, they fulfill out of some other state so I couldn't swing by and pick up a copy...

I was lucky and called around to some of my local game stores and one of them still had a few copies in stock. My worry was that the upcoming reprint won't be the same quality as the first run (although a few people have said they don't think that will be the case - it'll likely be the exact same run). Fortunately it was only about $40, although now I see CSI has it in stock for $27 or so.
