I've seen it listed at both prices before discounts( discounted to $65 and $35). Are there 2 versions? Thanks!

It used to be $99, but was reduced to $49 so the current retail cost is $49, as far as I know there is no difference in components or quality.

Ah. Good to know! Csi is still selling it for 67, which is why I asked!

Just to add that I bought it for the $50 price and I really really like the game.

Yeah, $99 was a weirdly high price for this game.

I'd say from looking at the components I'd expect maybe $79.99. So $49.99 is an amazingly good price.

I have always thought it was very overpriced, but there were still people defending it before release. I waited over a year to get it for $50 as a "deal of the day" at Miniature Market. I wish I had waited a little longer. It seems the game predictably didn't sell well and the publisher is dumping the stock.

$37.90 with shipping after MM points applied. Couldn't pass up that price.

I don't know if I'd use "predictably". Maybe in relation to the $99 original MSRP, but Hyperborea was ALL OVER BGG when it came out. It was in every article, best-of list, reviews, etc. So I think the critics and the publisher were predicting it would sell well, and it must have done at least alright at that price. But yes, now it is a few years old and the hype machine has died down, so lowering the price is a good option at this point.

BTW, I got it at the $65 level and I think it was worth it for what they put in there. It's seen enough play to warrant that, and it's seemed pretty popular when it does hit the table.
