So I bought pretty much everything on a whim (and a large sale at Fantasy Flight) and picked up the rest, I believe, from Miniature Market. I had been watching the game's thread for a while and when I saw the sales, I pulled the trigger.

The problem? No Tannhauser base game set. It was everywhere a month ago for $48.00 Now? Nowhere to be found at that price. I tried the Geek Marketplace three times, only to find one had already sold his and the other two haven't been active in months. I finally broke down and bought a copy on ebay for a haggled-down $70.00 (+ shipping).

So now I wait and hope it was all worth it

$70 is about what the core set cost in Canada retail regular price, so don't feel too bad. I think I paid $45 for mine, but then had to buy the 2nd edition rules on top of that. When it arrives however, you will definitely feel like it was worthwhile.

One of my friends who doesn't like miniature games OR war games loves this game and suggests it almost every game night where it's just the two of us. It IS definitely worth having and I'm sure you'll love it too.

You made it personal. All it did was buy you a little more pain than most.

It really is a good time. It feels a lot like a videogame to me. Like a MOBA or a multiplayer team deathmatch. It is a pretty darn good game that just oozes with theme.

It's cool. I'm in my 40's, so old enough that some new acronyms are beyond me, but not so old that I would go back

My game should be arriving any time now. I've been reading some of the rules online just to get primed.

A few weeks ago I managed to get it for £27 on EBay second hand- normal price ~£60 in the UK.I know of one shop now where they have one copy left and that is about it.

Then I went a bit mad and bought both map expansions and a load of extra miniature packs.

In the UK the Reich Troop pack just can not be found apart from £127 on Amazon...however, it seems a games shop in the UK must have found a pack down the back of a sofa as they had it listed on their website as the only Tannhauser item in stock so managed to get it for £16.

And I still haven't actually played it yet...

Once I saw that everything was going out of stock it took me a few months to get it all together. I now have everything but the equipment cards.
