Good times.
mbmbmbmbmb
I got my copy of Roma directly from Queen Games as a freebie tossed into another Kickstarter campaign (Escape, IIRC). It seems like they were using a lot of their old inventory as crowdfunding sweeteners for a while. Given that, your best bets are:

1) Here on BGG. I know a lot of people Kickstarted various Queen Games and received other games in which they had no interest as a "bonus". Many of these extra games were floating around on BGG as freebies or trade sweeteners for a bit. I'm sure another copy will pop up - maybe even in this thread (I opened mine and actually quite enjoyed it, so no deal there) ;-)

2) Watch Queen Games' various Kickstarter campaigns. These games are sometimes added as stretch goals, and other times available as add-ons. You can either make a deal with a backer of that game to get the game you want reasonably, or back the current game for $1 and pay the add-on price for the game you want.

3) The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund (JVMF) auction is happening right now on BGG: The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction - 2016 - CLOSED! Time to Pay and Ship!

They have a wishlist as well, where people can request games that they want to see in the auction so that people who happen to have an unused copy can post it for bidding: Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction 2016 Wishlist

With luck, you'll connect with somebody that way, and can benefit charity at the same time! :-D

Anyway, best wishes on the hunt. I hope that helps.

Thank you for the helpful information. I was surprised to see that there did not seem to be anything on eBay or on the BGG auctions. But, I will keep looking!

Dear Friend,

I have both of these games, gently played, but neither have gotten to my game table for a long time. If you're interested in crowding your own game shelves a little more let me know, we'll work out a deal for either or both,,,,,

The link I gave above has six (6) copies of Roma I for sale, including one in the USA.

Hi Justin!

Thanks for the information. The copy that you mention is actually not for sale. It is a sale created for someone who purchased at an auction. The other copies are for a German Edition which I do not want.

Follow the metalist of auctions here on the geek. Roma and the second one frequently come up for auction at really good prices usually both together.

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/66420/metalist-geeklist-a...

Also if you use the Aggregator tool it will search through all the auctions for specific games and you can link right to them.

Hope that helps.

I got both Roma and Roma II from BoardGameBliss around 3 months ago. Don't know if they currently have any copies for sale.

$16 CAD at the moment here:
http://store.401games.ca/catalog/3021923/roma-no-restock

That's quite a bit lower than the CSI list price above, even with shipping.
Not sure how much stock is available though.
