New Dawn seems to be on sale a lot, but this is the lowest I have seen.

Is this a good game or a poor seller? I know that Among The Stars is the bigger hit, and this was a spin off from that, but what's the deal on this?

I can't speak for everyone, but when it came out I had to have it until I realized it's not an Among the Stars expansion.

Pete (finally bought it at this price)

I think it got buried by Forbidden Stars, a game that is probably not quite as deep, but that provided more flavor and better artwork.

any chance they'd refund the difference? I got it for $15 more from the so called Bigger than Black Friday sale surprise

Now come on Colin. A sale that was when, over a week? 2 weeks? ago?

I don't think any retailer should be expected to give a difference in costs with that long a time span.

A response from the New Dawn forums I found simply summed up the differences:

evilone wrote:
Thanks for the nice review! Appreciated!!

Note that New Dawn is in the Among The Stars Universe thematically.
There are no mechanical connections between New Dawn and Among The Stars:

Among The Stars is a card drafting game.
New Dawn is a big, 4x-hybrid game with substantial player conflict and interaction. Very very different...


Thanks,

I really liked New Dawn. I played with an incorrect rule unfortunately but it was still really fun and a great 4x game that plays in about 2 hours.

I suspect they'd probably be willing to give you "points" for the difference. That's how they've handled my very very few complaints to them.

Pete (would try it)

I'd also not expect a retailer to have a sale they call Bigger than Black Friday and then have something from it on sale for $15 less ~2 weeks later as a regular daily deal

it doesn't exactly inspire buying confidence

thanks, I sent them an email

I didn't explicitly ask for a refund, just if there was anything that could be done and mentioned what I did in this post

If it were the "Cheaper than Black Friday Sale," you might have had a point.

Right,

Bigger to me implies more items on sale, not necessarily that the items would be cheaper.

My point is, you made a choice to pull the trigger on the item at that price. By asking for some type of refund or compensation for an item well after you've paid for it does nothing but weaken the retailer.

But, it is also your absolute right to ask for some type of compensation (which as you stated you already did)

Just a difference in opinion that's all (and one I'm responsible for derailing a hot deals thread for)
