Such a good game! I know it was pretty hard to get a copy of when it first came out.

That looks like a great price for Caverna, I hear it's an awesome game and that's a good price from what I've seen before. I still don't think I can pull the trigger, if I had $77 to spend on games I could probably come up with 3 to 4 decent games for that money at an OLGS. It's a shame that one cost so much, I do realize it has a gazillion pieces.

Thanks Scott for letting us all know about the deal. I hope you were able to grab a copy for yourself.

According to CamelCamelCamel, this appears to be on the high side of average. Has it been out of stock?

I think Aldie's testing us

20% off msrp is max allowed by mayfair's price fixing policy and hence regular price almost everywhere (w/free shipping at most because of the larger than normal profit margin) so even that fact that it's FSSS/prime doesn't make it hot because of not needing a $100+ order, only has amazon once had it down to a reasonably "hot" price ($60) according to CCC

did I fail the test?

BGG has it marked as a re-implementation of Agricola and given the benefit of a "re do" imho it outshines Agricola (of which I'm not a fan of) and I think even ranks higher now than it's outdated predecessor.

imho ymmv

I can only hope this is a parody of how bad some of the "deals" are in this forum.

Looks reasonably "hot" to me. This price is $10 cheaper than the other OLGS that I frequent, plus free shipping.

Okay, maybe "warm" but much better than a lot of posts in this forum lately.

The OP did this post wrong...The reason it showed up as a deal was because of the other sellers. $77.44 is the going price of amazon, the high end of the fluctuating price in the last 3 months, so not a deal...

HOWEVER if you click other sellers you'll see why the OP got a notification. The ongoing deal right now is at $71.99. There are 2 sellers for it. No tax and the one that forces you to pay for shipping makes it come to a total of $71.99.

The OP needs to update the subject line and change his post...personally I would've made a new post to have more control...but someone was upset that I was cluttering up the forums.

If you don't give a crap about the box, they have a warehouse deal for $63.50.

Personally, I'm a box chucker. So, if I were interested, I'd grab that. Unfortunately, the odds of ever getting this to the table are about zero.
