This may seem like self-promotion (admittedly, I'm the designer!), but this is probably the lowest I've seen Clockwork Wars on sale.

For comparison, Cool Stuff has it for $65.99.

Don't know how many more are left.

Looks to be 5 left. (No longer indicates # in stock - seem to be several copies available)

The name of this game is so familiar. I wonder why I never hear anything about it. Will have to investigate some before it is sold out.

Re: [Amazon] Clockwork Wars - $56, free prime shipping
i have it and it's a lovely game for its genre.

it is usually fairly costly and at this price it's a steal.

It came out around the same time as Blood Rage and was completely over-shadowed by it. They are both area control games but they play quite differently. The biggest standout feature in Clockwork Wars in my opinion is the preplanning feature. It can make for some very tense and exciting gaming. I actually like the gameplay better than Blood Rage. Of course, now there is Cry Havoc to think about too.

The thing that has kept me from buying it is that it seems expensive to me for a game without minis. All the pieces are wooden disks. If you want the plastic, there is another purchase involved (if it is even still available). I'm sure this isn't as important to some folks as it is to me though. I might have bought it anyway but someone in my gaming group already has it. He bought it during a big CSI sale awhile back.

The minis are available from a 3rd party on Amazon.

I do agree with the price thing, though. This looks like a fun game, but even the lowest price of $56 doesn't seem good enough. I don't mind the lack of minis one bit, but the price does seem excessive.

It's a huge box, with a number of thick chunky double sided tiles, player screens, sheets for your moves, etc etc. 56 is a great price. It's also one of my favorite games of last year.

Have you ever seen the mammoth Empires: Age of Discovery Deluxe Edition box? CW's box is close in size to that.

$56 is a great price. Now, when it was selling for $75-80,that's a different story and probably a large reason this game didn't take off.

I picked one up as well. Space-Biff's review really got me interested in the game, but the price had me on hold for awhile. I really enjoy strategic dudes-on-a-map Euro/Ameritrash blends, and it's excellent to hear that 2P is a viable option here. At this price, I went for it. Thanks for the heads-up. Can't wait to play it.

Ohh those cards, those cards... in a game of pretty deep strategy, the pure power and randomness of some of the cards was a real game killer for me. Loved the planning phase though, very cool.

I believe it was $45 in CSI's recent "The Meeples Must Be Crazy" sale. Not sure if they'll drop it that low again, though. It is a huge box o' stuff, even if it isn't plastic.
