Hi there,

Just wanted to ask around for some opinions:

I saw Formula Dé at a local FLGS for ~$45 or $50 and I know the reprint is coming - is it worth getting now or waiting? I've checked the Formula Dé page and the Asmodée site and I don't see many details re: dates or what the new version looks like.

Also - I know of another FLGS that has Acquire for $80 (CAN) - worth getting? Or better deals through EBay? It's the Avalon Hill version.

Thanks!

Tim

IMHO, it's a lousy price for Acquire, and an okay price for Formula De

Acquire's a terrific game, but that's a bit high on the price. Keep looking for that one.

That looks like a pretty good price for Formula De. I'd be surprised if it was any cheaper than that after it's reprinted.

That looks like a pretty crappy price for Acquire. I'd check ebay.

I'd definiately wait for the reprint of Formula De. Acquire however, I feel is a decent game. Doing the conversion, it's about $70 US and I've seen them go for as much as $95 on ebay recently (the lastest Hasbro version anyway...). Granted... it may be a phase in that a lot of people want it right now, but the $70 is a pretty good price in the current market. If you want a very similar game that I feel is a little bit better, try Union Pacific. Although it's also OOP right now, I think it goes for a little less and I also heard that it is being reprinted.

it's only a fair price for Acquire if you have to have the AH overlarge, overproduced version that's currently selling at collector's prices. if on the other hand you just want to play Acquire, then you can often find tham at thrift stores, and if not there, on Ebay for between $20 and $40 US.
