Amazon.de have Survive : Escape from Atlantis (30th Anniversary Edition) for only €16.10. With shipping to the UK, it works out at £17.79.

It is the English edition of the game.

It's been on my wishlist for a while, and couldn't pass up at this price.

You might also want to add Camel Up to your order at just €14.98!

That's a extraordinary price, John! I bought it in January, when it was €5 dearer and was very pleased then.

Superb deal for a great game. I thoroughly recommend that everyone who doesn't own it already snaps it up.

Been thinking about this game for a while for my collection and to review.

Is it really that good guys? I mean I know the price is brilliant!

But what is your thoughts on the game overall?

It's a family game, at heart - although kids don't often take kindly to being eaten by sharks!

Kids today! When I was a kid I would have given my right arm to be eaten by a shark.

I strongly dislike it, although it is a very nice production (and the price here is excellent). The game can get quite nasty and I don't associate it providing a positive gaming experience for all players.

Check out The Downfall of Pompeii for a more elegant disaster game.

We really enjoy it as a family game. The sharks/whales issue really depends on your children and mainly their age. Besides, there are plenty of games that may have this 'problem', you've got to get children not having their way all the time. Although, we've played this game with several children from different families and had no tantrums.

Interestingly, we used to own The Downfall of Pompeii, but all found it very dull. Opinions, eh!...

I really hope those who'd like this game get chance to see this thread before the price shoots back up: €16.10 (c.£12)! As opposed to amazon.uk's price of £26.35.

I've had nothing but a great time playing this game with adults.

Obviously it's a lighter game, but it moves so quickly and smoothly whilst still providing nice choices that I've yet to find someone not enjoy it, personally. Of course it is a bit vicious... But that's what makes the game so satisfying. Frankly if you can't handle someone joyously sending a wooden shark into the path of your last plastic meeple then I think you need to lighten up!

I take it you don't know many four years olds? A shark eating your meeple can feel like the end of the world!

Thanks for this. I am feeling a little overwhelmed with all the good deals out there. My list of " must buy " games is longer than the Mississippi. Quite frankly, I don't know where to start ! Survive ? Patchwork ? Jamaica or Blackfleet ? Aaaaaagh !
