Just saw this today come across my feed. I had heard that this version of risk was pretty good and for this cheap...why not. They also had halo monopoly for $13.

Nice! Been on my wishlist for a while. It is supposed to be comparable to Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit. I have it on hold at my local GameStop.

Thanks!

They also have Star Wars: Imperial Assault, but only for store pickup, if you're lucky enough to have a store near you that actually has it.

When I put it in my cart it showed "not available for in-store pickup".

Just got the email that it's ready for local pickup so it worked, at least for me!

I picked up the last one in Jacksonville for $7.97 with 10% off. Couldn't find Imperial Assualt. Thank you.

After I went through the checkout process, it does allow for in-store pickup. Not sure why that shows up when you first add it to your cart.

Yep, I added to the cart and then checked for store inventory during checkout. Got the game too, but that all but guarantees the Black Edition will be $20 in a week or two.

This seems like a no-brainer at $8. Any reason I should hesitate?

Do you secretly want the Black Edition?
Can you find it locally to avoid the $5 shipping fee?

Its a damn good price, but I expect it to get clearanced out locally, as soon as the new Star Wars movie hits. Kylo Ren on your box is so last year.

It had a clearance price tag of $14.95. It rang up for $7.97. Employees didn't even know the low price.

I understand the temptation at this price but I read some reviews and ratings comments and I decided to pass on this game. The most common phrase was "horribly unbalanced!"

I find it to be quite well-balanced, once you figure out the best counter-strategies for each side.

I have to agree. There are a few fixes that you can find on the BGG page that inexplicably didn't make it into the final rulebook (mostly making the Republic stronger). However, once we adopted those we found that both sides could win, and it was often very close assuming both sides had decent rolls. I bought my brother the Black edition when it first came out and we play whenever I visit him.

The designers modified the rules to make it balanced - don't pass up on this game no matter what the price is.

So they ship it to the store and you pick it up? Or is at the store?

Pick up at the store, they just hold it for you. You pay when you pick it up.

Picked up a copy since I'd been eyeing this one for a while. Well that's two Star Wars trilogies covered by Risk games. Now if they'll just make another one with totally different mechanics for the new trilogy (and each trilogy after that) I'll be all set...

Looks like Spyfall might be there for some people too. 14.97 isn't a bad price for it either. Only available for pickup though.
