Star Wars: Risk

So it's Risk right? Wrong. It's really a stripped down/streamlined Queen's Gambit but rethemed for Return of the Jedi and with a risk badge slapped on.

A comparison of The Black edition with the regular version can be found here. Let's just say it's pimped. There were 15 copies when my Camel, erm, grunted (?) and there are 12 now. I flubbed it and got £28.44

Having only played (owned) the non-black edition, and looking at the components, I can't really see it being worth almost 3 times the money (without flubbing)

However, the non black edition is amazing. Yes the components are a little cheap, but that for me is one of it's appeals.

And it really is a great game. Quite tense, and I highly recommend it. Haven't found anyone yet who hasn't really enjoyed it.

Just to let everyone know - the regular version is perfectly fine, but has awful component quality.

The Black Series isn't really a 'deluxe' version - it's merely 'normal'

So I flubbed it and took the offer and then uploaded the deal to here. Then they sold out and now I've been told my order won't be fulfilled as they're out of stock.

Dang.

Ouch, I've been there many times.

I generally keep my mouth shut on those until it's dispatched!

That's utterly bizarre. I saw your post here, flubbed it and took the offer, and I've just had a dispatch notification today... what the hell? How do they decide which orders to honour and which to reject?

Maybe it's based on price/offer.

If they can buy it for £28 and one offer was £27 and one was £29, maybe they accept the £29?

Not sure, my order with Flubit says: "You purchased this product for just
£28.44". But the status is "cancelled". The email says:
Quote:

We are very sorry that this happened, but unfortunately, somewhere between you receiving the offer and purchasing the offer, the merchant ran out of stock of the item.

We try to do our very best so that this doesn't happen and most of our merchants hold on to the product while your offer runs. Unfortunately, in this case this wasn't possible and the item is no longer available.

Your money is being returned to you right now please get in touch with us if you do not see your refund in your bank account within 3 working days.


I guess I'll just not post the deal on here until I have the product in my hands from now on. Once bitten.
