Just a heads up that the Core is on sale at CSI for 54.99

I was on the fence about getting 2 cores given that I planned on getting all of W1 also. I was only thinking about it because I would have had to buy extra dice, the maneuver tool, the Damage Deck and the Objective Deck separately (decks from ebay) since we'll be playing with my pieces only (the other player can't really buy anything right now because of medical expenses).

But with the sale price, it makes the difference between the core price and getting those components separately only $20, which is a hell of a deal for all the core ships.

I love how I can justify spending $240 dollars on plastic toys by thinking about how much I'm saving.

Still, it's cheaper than when I was golfing (and there I go again)

Bummer. I bought a second core from them just a few weeks ago. I have NO reason to get a third.

much as I want to because I want to fly 'more' ships right now yuk(impatience with wave 1 still being on a boat....) I would rather double up on other (wave 1 (dolphin/gladiator) or wave 2 ships) Glad i have the frigate and the nebulon B, but do not see myself fielding many of them(maybe the CR90).

It has been available for a while for about that price (give or take a pound) in the UK from various places. However $55 in the US is a heck of a lot less (even allowing for UK/US price differentials). I hope that this isn't an indication that the game isn't prospering and they are trying to get rid of excess stock.

I wondered the same thing. I know I've resisted picking this up because of the high entry cost (and the high cost of expansions). Maybe this will convince me.

Well, this is at least where CSI gets a thumbs up from me. I pulled the trigger on it finally last night, about 30 minutes before their daily sale went live. D'oh. An email to customer service and less than an hour later I get a gift certificate in the amount of the difference. Works for me!

I'd be all over this if I didn't already have two cores.

I created a second CSI account using another email address and placed two orders, each with a core. I split the W1 preorders between the two and it was still enough to get free shipping.

Yeah I'm sure the reason they have that limit is to make sure someone doesn't buy a bunch at the sale value with the intent to resell them. Since I'm actually keeping both, I'm ok with it. It would be nice if the limit was 2 instead of 1 but so be it.
