For those knowing R&D for a longer time, do you think older promos would be available at Essen? I would pay 2 Gold and an Anvil to finally get the Beekeeper!

A rumor is they are going to make a promo pack available of all previous promos in 2017. It's a ways away, but if you can wait it should be reasonably priced at that point.

Even if they had older promos, you still wouldn't get the beekeper from them. Like most promos you could get them only at specific places and the beekeper is a BGG promo.

It's honestly not at all an essential tile. I flip-flop on selling mine all the time, and not because I love it or anything.

On the one hand, even I have trouble with the idea of selling what's essentially a bauble for $40+ when I paid $5 for it.

On the other hand, my momma didn't raise a fool, so I'm not going to sell it for less than market price, either.

So mostly when I see it now I just get annoyed with it

I got mine at the BGG stand last year for €5.

They sold out pretty quickly. By the time I wanted to buy it, they were sold out. And since the item is no longer availble in the geek store, they won't be able to sell more Beekepers at the fair this year.

Anyway, thanks for the insight!

I do not think it means what you think it means.

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

Completionism is an illness from which many gamers suffer. Keyflower is not materially better with the beekeeper. (Easy for me to say since I have a copy of the beekeeper.shake)
