Still needs to add tax and shipping (total $18.13 for me, which is still less than Amazon Prime's $24.77).

I think this is a mistake on Target's website, as the title of the page says "Citadels Classic" and the price falls in line with that version (the reprint of the original).

They've got the wrong box art pictured.

Checked the upc number - it matches citadels classic, not the new version.

There is a 2016 edition Citadels Classic version. So its not wrong ... its just not what you want.

Wow, that seems needlessly confusing. They seriously reprinted the old version, too?

Yeah, seems redundant to me too.

Perhaps its so they still have a mass market version and/or some people might prefer the "classic" edition. At least it proclaims its "classic-ness" on the box.

Is the difference purely asthetic?

I got rid of this game a couple of years ago because what should have been a quick, fun, filler-type game was ponderous to the point of madness. Never again! (And this was on several occasions.... Not dependent upon the group in my experience) Is the newer version modified to make it fun.

Zee briefly mentions Citadels Classic in the video, it truly is classic as it no longer includes the Dark City expansion.

MSRP on Citadels Classic is $12.99... box is 5x5x1 inches.

The newer non-Classic Citadels, which adds some new cards and removed some dud cards, is 17% off at Amazon, $24.77 http://www.amazon.com/Bruno-Faiduttis-Citadels-Card-Game/dp/...

I understand the instructions that one has 6 pre-baked setup options that lets you swap out cards and adjust for your group's stabbiness. The box for Citadels also has 8x the volume as "Citadels Classic" - 10x10x2 inches.

edit: One more note, I've been watching this game for a while, the 24.77 Amazon price is new, it's been MSRP for months. Surprised it's not still MSRP, given Asmodee's new world order.
