Edit: This entry is edited to answer the requirements for such a post.
Edit II: I edited this again to add a quote from a comment by the publisher farther below, so you get the info right here.
Edit III: As a commenter pointed out, the original title of this thread might scare people away since it contained the wording "expandable card game". So I was happy to edit the title.

Recently I stumbled upon the Nature of the Beast series. I loved the idea of real animals joining clans and fighting each other. (Not your boring fantasy creatures or so.)

I read a lot of reviews which were full of praise (including Ender and Tom Vasel). The term "hidden gem" was repeatedly found.

Now since I think a gem shouldn't stay a hidden one, I'd like to tell you that there's a "going out of business sale" (sadly). The deal includes the three games of the series plus twice the KS bonus deck for $30. You can purchase the package at the designer's own webshop:

Shipping is only $8, as the publisher says:

Since it is an expandable card game you can use the decks of all the sets with each other and also build your own deck. If you like an original expandable card game with lots of subtle humor. Go and get it!

Re: Hidden gem (expandable card game) on sale
What kind of discount is $38 shipped? What was it going for before?

Re: Hidden gem (expandable card game) on sale
Thanks for the heads-up, I have wanted to try this game for a while and now that I know I would not get the chance if I waited any longer.. I'm in for a set.

Re: Hidden gem (expandable card game) on sale
From: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1417183/what-hot-deal

Quote:
A Hot Deal posting HAS:
1. A price.
2. A Region or virtual platform in the subject line ([US], [Global], [Kansas City, MO, USA], [iOS/Android/PC/Mac], etc.)
--- 2a. Hot Deals for the region of Europe should be posted in the Europe specific subforum: https://boardgamegeek.com/forum/1177627/boardgamegeek/hot-de...
3. A descriptive subject line that includes: retailer and price or discount percentage.
4. A board game or board game related item for sale.


Please update your thread title accordingly, as it's currently not very descriptive..

:edit: I just realized, that quote doesn't expect the most important piece of info - the game title/series in the thread title!

From a skim through the Internet Archive it looks like the price as of last December for everything was $45.84 before shipping (MSRP of $71.84).

Was a kickstarter game from 2012 and looks like the bundle is basically what you would have gotten had you backed originally at $70.

Yes, the designer/publisher was already offering it for a lower price than originally. So choose yourself how much of a discount you count this

It's 6 prepared decks plus bonus stuff.

I am sure it is a good deal. I do not like the art style and layout.

Actually the $38 includes US shipping, all three games in the series and two copies of the expansion pack. I corrected the purchase page to more clearly reflect that. Thanks for the shout out, Tim!

Re: Complete Nature of the Beast series (expandable card game) for $30
I bit. $38 shipped for an LCG-style puzzle-y card game with 6 decks and some promos? Not a bad price at all. Plus, since this is an (unfortunate) going out of business sale, you don't have to worry about buying into multiple future expansions -- $38 gets you everything!

If I was in the states I would jump on this. Great price for a fun game (I only have the City/Suburb deck) Sad to see they are going out of business. i don't know why but I always thought they were an English company.

Thanks, just jumped on this. My daughters are turning 2 in a few months so they are too young to play it, but they LOVE animals so I'm sensing they will enjoy this game when they get older

Mine arrived my city on Friday, to the USPS sorting center which is about 2 miles away from my house. Yesterday they sent it to the USPS Hub close to my house... The package supposedly got delivered today (I'm not home yet). Crazy USPS!

Huh... that's interesting. I'll check the game out and see if I want another copy before they go out of business (I wish they weren't going out of business )
