Hey,

First of all great game. I recommend buying it if you're into co-op games and can get it at a fair price.

Now to the issue, I played this at PAX West from the lending library, but couldn't locate a copy to buy for the life of me (they should have a copy on hand to buy for all that are available).

On the way home, I decided to check out the purchase price, but it's pretty costly, all things considered. $50 USD + $40 USD Shipping = $115 CAD for the base game.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this any cheaper? I'd be good paying $50-70 CAD including shipping, but $115 is pretty high.

I believe they may be running another kickstarter project for the next expansion. I'd dare say the base game may also be included. Subscribe to the game to be notified of any news.

That said, their postage is still quite high.

I got together with a few local Aussies last time to buy several copies, which reduced the shipping rate.

There are also a few copies listed as 'for trade' - maybe someone else would surrender their copy at a cheaper rate of postage?

There are several copies available at BoardGameBliss at $66.95 CAD - I've always ordered enough for free shipping, but even with shipping you'll probably be close to your target price.

Have been holding out for that new kickstarter for quite some time now. But then I'll want all the things, expansion packs and minis / meeples and the like, so I feel waiting for the KS (or announcement to the contrary) is my strategy for now.

Great thematic game, very pretty

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

Brilliant game. Few clunky issues, but nothing you can't play through.
