MM $25.99 http://www.miniaturemarket.com/rav26527.html
Cardhaus $25.99 New, $23.39 dinged http://www.cardhaus.com/catalog/board_games/seeland/229047

BGG https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/63759/seeland

Not a blockbuster game, but I haven't seen much negative about it--some folks love it, some folks like it but not quite enough to make regular rotation. In any event $15 seems low enough to take a flier on.

EDIT (23:27 ET): Only 9 left in stock, so likely to be dead before I get up in the morning. I'll edit the header when I do. Glad so many folks were able to take advantage.

EDIT: Finally dead as of 09:56 ET 6/3.

Re: [Amazon] Seeland $14.99 [US]
I got it for $20 last year and don't regret it but, its a good game with an odd theme. I do like the roundel economic system.


Same seller has Asara for $20. Another fine Ravensburger family game. Asara

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I got this on an earlier sale for $22 or something, but $15? Wow.

Seeland is a nice crossover that works as a family game and a light gamer's game.

Re: [Amazon] Seeland $14.99 [US]
I bought it for $20, played it once and then sold it for $15. Not a bad game. Just didn't see it hitting the table again with all my other games. It was an enjoyable light game. The rondel mechanic is interesting, but I have too many other games I enjoy more which use one.

$15 made me pull the trigger. That's less than $1 per windmill meeple.

It better not be another book!

Re: [Amazon] Seeland $14.99 [US]
I've passed on this at $20 from a local store for years now but somehow $15 was the magic number. Thanks!

The same seller also has Castle Blast for $12.80. It's a really nice quality set and for those of you with young children you can pass it off as "blocks for the kid" and still get the temporary rush of buying a new game.

Seeland is right at the top of my list of Most Underrated Games (if we imagine I actually made a list)..

What else would be on that list? I'm finding that my enjoyment doesn't always correlate to a BGG ranking - love some lower-rated stuff, meh about some higher-rated stuff.

Re: [Amazon] Seeland $14.99 [US]
About 9 hours ago, Seeland was ranked in the 900's in Amazon's board games category. Right now it's ranked #53.

It looks like his thread has moved a lot of copies.

Edit: And by the way, if you like family Euro games with elegant mechanics, it's definitely worth $15. I bought it a year ago for $20 and I'm happy to have it.

The power of BGG! This and the cajon bag craze have made Amazon very happy indeed, I think.

I was one of those who caved and got a copy, you guys convinced me.

Had been on my Amazon wishlist for awhile at $19.99, but instantly pulled the trigger at the lower price. Will have tomorrow. Good deal !

I just got my copy today, and it has significant box damage. Did anyone else get a "ding and dent" copy from this sale?

Mine was dinged up, but no worse than most Amazon shipments.

My game was dented on one edge of the top box and it was deep enough to crease the lower box.

My copy was in great condition despite the lack of packaging like normal Amazon shipments.
