Normally $10 higher. Been watching this for a while, but hoped it was going to be included as a pledge level award in the Lisboa Kickstarter launching next week. Now I feel I have to take the bird in hand.

It is a lot heavier than anything else in your collection but if you take the time to wrap your head around it and have other players up for a heavier euro you'll be richly rewarded.

Highly recommend checking out some of the excellent tutorial videos. Like most Vital Lacerda titles, even for seasoned heavy gamers it's easy to miss a few rules on your first play or two.

One of our favorites of the last couple of years. Enjoy it!

I'm ready for a game like this. The reason I don't have a game like this in my collection is that I'm not sure my gaming group is ready for a game like this. But there is a first time for everything.

All you need is one other player ready to jump in with you. While it's a bit better with more players it actually plays surprisingly well with 2. It's certainly the best way to learn a game like this if you don't have an experienced player teaching it.

Dante, how do you feel about how this sale price compares to its historical cost?

I've been watching this one for a while but can't remember how low it's gone...

I've been watching for a while now and have never seen it this low. MM has it listed for 51.99 (out of stock and never been in stock at that price) but CSI appears to carry it as an exclusive

Does Eagle-Gryphon use a price protection scheme? Cause the current price seems to be "only" 25% off...

And free shipping on the entire order! That's a clincher for me.

It's a great price for this especially with free shipping. I backed it via KS, same for Vinhos and they were worth every penny. Hoping Kanban gets a similar treatment eventually.

If you haven't seen these in person or in a video for scale it's a ridiculously big packed crazy thick heavy box. All the cardboard inside is at least twice as thick as most games as well.

There's no doubt these EGG luxe editions are pricey but I will say that they are definitely delivering incredible component quality for the premium price. The new Vinhos Deluxe is the same (box size and all)and I'm guessing Lisboa will be too.

For most on this site, the free shipping is a great benefit, but I live 5 miles from my closest CSI, so shipping for me is nothing more than the price of 1/6th of a gallon of gas.

Still, the $20 discount below MSRP alone is the best deal I've seen in 5 months of watch listing this game.

Yes, definitely worth $60 with free shipping - the box is HUGE and HEAVY.

So much stuff, such amazing quality.

Market testing of retailing through an exclusive deal continues...

It is interesting to watch board game sellers try new ways to maintain their profit margins.

Fallen to $60 a few times. Unsure when/if it will fall further.

I'm quite interested, but having so many games already, getting this one played regularly or at all might be tough.

I've again decided against it. I'd primarily be getting it for solo play, and there are better options for solo play.

Pretty much this. Plus I could have sworn I've seen it drop to $55 or so once before.

For me this is a collectors item as much as it is a game - if you're of that sort of mindset. The quality of the art, the design, and the material is just stunning.

The game's not bad either .
