I feel like I heard a 2015 date ages ago. Any news?

It's in stock at Time Well Spent games! If you haven't ordered there before, they have great service and great packaging.

$41 shipped to me ... A little high, but very tempting. Seems like a fantastic expansion.

I emailed Ravensburger US directly and their response was:

Quote:
Thank you for your interest in Ravensburger, at this time there is no plan to bring the expansion pack over to our line.


They then proceeded to recommended a link they found from Time Well Spent.

Kind regards,
Joe

argh ...

there is another thread about the game and north-american woes in obtaining it. there are some overall concerns about the quality of the production and how much is really in the box considering the price... all these things make me hesitant to drop $40 on this expansion. at the same time - seems like a really good expansion. gives you a number of modules to mix into the base game.

That is very disappointing to hear. Las Vegas! is one of the most requested games in my collection by gamers and non-gamers alike. I was really looking forward to this one.

For us Canadians, or possibly Americans for a few bucks more, both boardgamebliss and greatboardgames have Boulevard in stock for around $30.

....shipping to your state is $12.50 US.

That's "pretty high"?

they are asking $34.95 ... plus the shipping ... even considering the exchange rate ... for an expansion that has rather few components - yes. that's "pretty high" considering it would, in total, cost about 2x as much i paid for the base game

Actually, it isn't that high, considering it is coming from Canada [approximately $9.95 US].

My total bill was just under $40 US. And, given that I want it, and there appears no other way of acquiring it cheaper, I ordered it today.

Error - it turned out to be just over $40 [+$0.13]. whistle

You'd only mentioned the shipping cost as a concern.

Let's be clear that they are asking $32.95 CAD ($27.54 USD) for the game and $14.95 CAD ($12.49 USD) for the shipping.

This is a game imported from Germany that you are importing from Canada. Neither cost seems unreasonable in the slightest with that in mind. There is a luxury cost for a luxury indulgence. And at worst we're talking 2 skipped trips to McDonalds to bring it right in line with run of the mill domestic board game prices.

It certainly is entirely within your opinion what you want to pay for the product and what the product is worth to you, and to be frustrated that Ravensburger/alea has not released it domestically so it can be picked up via regular deep discount online prices.

But I don't think we can criticize Boardgamebliss' pricing or shipping on this product. Incidentally it's right in line with the 35 euro I paid to import it directly from Germany.

All that being said, I have not the slightest clue why I chose to object to your statement. What a dumb thing for me to do.

Sorry.

yeah. i understand all of these points ... and i agree that (because of the lack of release in the US) this would be a "luxury" purchase. and i am mostly dealing with a personal dilemma of purchasing this expansion right now

Just got mine for $35.74 (after conversion from Canadian to US dollars) from Boardgame Bliss in Canada. That included shipping costs. More than what it would have cost for a US release, but I'm tired of waiting...

I finally ordered from Amazon.de, with a few other games that seem to never be coming to the U.S.

If I split the shipping charges among the 4 games, it came to about $26. Not bad at all!
