I know it's on sale a lot. But still seems like a decent price...

I've heard the legends of cheap copies of Loyang being dumped on Tanga - but that was before my time.

$9.99 or less, depending on your Tanga level.

Oh, the good old days.

Tanga, Deniath, etc.

Leonardo da Vinci

one of two (Caylus I think the other) that made worker placement games popular again

surprised only 5 of us own the the microbadge...

mb

but there are probably a hundred or more over the course of years of LdV on sale at coolstuff hot deal posts...

at least LdV wasn't a kickstarter game that backers found could be had for less than they paid to back it just a month after they got their copies.....

I think that this (counter-intuitively) happens most commonly with games that are both good games and popular games.

Take Pandemic Legacy: Season 1. Currently on sale for 50% from the same retailer: Coolstuff.

These games tend to go through a predictable cycle... If you can simply wait, and buy the great games of 3 years ago - you can usually get them for less than the went for "discount retail".

The one area this typically does not apply (there are always exceptions) is limited / deluxe / collector's editions and also to Heavy Euro games... the ones that didn't quite get the big HYPE boost and settled into off-list obscurity. Ironically, they tent to hold their value.

That was the one that I immediately thought of. I remember when I first started purchasing board games and I'd marvel at how that one was always so cheap when it seemed like it shouldn't be.

I paid $12 (IIRC) for a copy at CoolStuff's booth 1/2 hour before GenCon's closing bell. They had a bunch more. So yes, clearly TMG printed way too many.

It is a crunchy Feld. "Print 25,000 - this guy is hot!"

There is no accounting for taste...
