Appears it was a mistake. When I went to check out, it canceled the order and said the item is no longer available. It's listed as $26.99 now (32% off)

We're sorry. The item Imhotep Builder of Egypt Board Game is no longer available from the seller you selected. To see if it's available from another seller, click here to return to the item's product detail page.

VirVentures... maybe pricing error?

Edit: Guess it was too good to be true

Wow, that's ridiculously cheap! Seller has good ratings too. I wish I didn't already own it so I could buy it at this price ????

Was an excellent price...I would have bought it for that price for the cubes alone.

Better a mistake honestly confessed than a scam.

I got Risk Legacy from them when it was on sale for $15. No issues.

Boo! Pricing mistake and despite getting a confirmation email the order was auto-cancelled about an hour ago

In the grand scheme of things I suppose I'm glad Amazon has a safety switch for things like that. One bad pricing could put someone out of business otherwise.

Except that it's arguably a violation of contract law. Technically if you get an order confirmation and then they cancel, you can probably sue for specific performance.

Of course I've never actually read Amazon's terms of service, which likely circumvent that.

I read a fair bit of contract law decisions (more than most people, anyway) and it seems that the authorities are big on what's fair and equitable.

Think reasonable persons tests and whatnot. You could almost certainly successfully argue that a willing seller is unlikely to offer a game far below market price.

But I'm not a lawyer.

Even if the terms of service allowed for it, the best you get is forcing them to sell you the game at that price. The court fees alone, nevermind the time you would waste, would negate any savings you might have achived.

I work in advertising for a company. Sometimes we have errors in wording or price in our ads. I laugh when people say they'll sue us for false advertising or whatever. Unless you can get a class action suit against a large company who is a repeat offender, or the suit is over a high priced sale (like real estate), it is beyond worthless.
