I saw that many retailers are expected to get it back in stock around Jan 24th. Will this help the price to go back down at all? Right now, it seems like the rarity has driven the price closer to $120. I don't mind paying that much for a great game, especially if it benefits the designer. But I don't fancy filling the pockets of a third party retailer who is just jacking the price up.

MSRP = $80

Many places will offer it for sale at less than that, you should continue practicing patience, this will be back in stock soon and more places will offer it for a reasonable price.

Nathaniel: While I appreciate people selling the game to those who want it, I would recommend holding out for subsequent reprints. We have reprints arriving in stores next week, then again a month later, then again in April. You're definitely going to be able to get it at MSRP or lower.

Thanks for the quick response. I will practice some self control and wait. I am really looking forward to getting to play this game. It looks amazing and I think my gaming buddies will love it.

Good to hear!

I just had a family member ask me where they could find a copy and I was struggling to tell them they should spend over $100 on Amazon.

I'll happily spread the word a reprint is coming soon.

All that price gouging for local rarity in a global economy is crazy. It has been continually in stock at my flgs forever, at MSRP.

Is this also with all the nice little add on bits?
As in the lovely oil drums and metal ingots etc...?

Maybe at the end of December 2018 one can buy a copy off of a game-store shelf at MSRP. Don't hold your breath though.

Evan: May I ask which FLGS you frequent? If they're not on our retailer list, I'd like to add them.

We'll tell them dates if they subscribe to our retailer newsletter, but they haven't done that. Otherwise they rely on dates from their distributors (who we keep informed, but distributors buy from a LOT of publishers).

Either way, it should be back in stores this week.

I visited my FLGS this past Saturday and was surprised to see they had 1 copy left so I had to pick it up (and the expansion too) for the retail price. I don't mind spending a bit more to help them out.

But to then get caught up in the excitement to chase down the metal coins on eBay and promo cards on Meeple Source is pricy way to backfill to a KS-like version. That's what I get for missing out.
