Whole lotta game at $7.50 with free Prime shipping...:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LD1796S?tag=article-boa...

Best price yet according to the Camel X3 folks.

Expansion "Reinforcements" is nicely priced at $7.87 as well.

Tons of fun for under $20.

I never thought I'd feel like I overpaid at $10.

Re: [AMAZON] Orcs Orcs Orcs $7.50 Prime Shipping
We just bought this as well. My boys (12, 9, 7) love it. I play with them and I'm usually the one setting out the new monsters (it can be a bit fiddly). Overall, it's been a good purchase so far. My 9yo isn't nearly as interested in other games, but this one's a hit with him.

I also have the expansion, but am saving it for later. It looks like it can add quite a bit of varied gameplay.

I keep wondering how much the whole Castle Panic/ Orcs Orcs Orcs thing is weighing on the BGG ratings.

Grabbed one. Says one left on the base game.

Picked it up with the expansion. $16 for both...awesome. Definitely worth it.

Grabbed a copy of the main game. Too low a price to pass up.

Thanks for the post!

Dead at $7.50 but still available at $7.54 (sold by Amazon). Price delta was actually a bit more because the $7.50 price was from a 3rd party seller who didn't collect sales tax to California ;-)

Picked it up along with the expansion. Thanks!

Where are all the people pointing out that this was part of the Queen Games fire sale in December?

For this money it's an insta-buy I think the new fate cards make the game much more interesting - the fate cards replace the 15 cards from the base game - the change is rather than targeting a specific creature type to move closer the new cards target all creatures in an entire region. yikes!
There are also 3 new orc types and new terrain tiles - well worth it for anyone who enjoys the base. For those new to this game that have the base and expansion I would play with the new fate cards and leave the new creatures and new terrain til you get used to it.

a side note maybe a warning - my expansion copy came with the orc giving the middle finger gesture... it's only one card though so maybe a sharpie could be used if it bothers you....

FYI guys, this is totally old news 'n' stuff.

This game AND EXPANSION were totally and utterly part of the big old Queen games sale last December.

Like, DUH!

Here's the link 'n' stuff: DEAD [Amazon] Queen Games fire sale - Alhambra $13.47, Fresco $18.89, Kingdom Builder expansions $10.50 - $14, etc.

You totally should have bought it back then, but because you didn't, you're not cool 'n' junk.

the Reinforcements expansion is up to $19 so I held off on that but I did get the base game at 7.54... just hoarding really.

Well, my kid might like it or maybe we can save it as an easy gift for one of his buddies.

Funny how it works. I'd expect the base game to rise first. I guess they have (had) more of a glut of the base game.

It's possible a lot of people picked up the base game in the December sale. Now they saw this thread and decided to pick up the expansion.

I agree that it's likely there is far more base game inventory, but it's possible that right now the expansion is vastly outselling the base game.

Thanks. I picked it up before I asked. I know how Amazon pricing can go.

As far as the finger... my kids will just think he's driving a car just like their dad.

Got mine today. Queen's QC strikes again. The expansion has one too few green bases and one extra red base. Got to track down the contact info for them.
