How about up-charging games you don't have then mailing them when they get them 8-10 months later!

I'm seeing this near-scam more and more frequently feeding off your impulsiveness. zombie

Personally, I find bad grammar to be worse than Kickstarter. But that's just me.

The spelling was incorrect, the grammar was okay.

It's not Prime so no guarantee. I thought MSRP was $80. I'm seeing Terraforming Mars though, for $90 and some other things, like the Nintendo Switch with a $50 mark up and future delivery date. It would be smarter for the person to just wait for normal price and availability. Just putting this out there.

No. Using the superlative instead of the comparative form is a grammatical mistake.

While using the superlative instead of the comparative form can be argued based on dialect and 'how it sounds', spelling "worse" with a "t" on the end is a pure, proof-reading, spelling mistake.

I read today the new MSRP after the just-announced reprint Kickstarter will be $120 so this is not far off for delivery from that print run. The original KS price was $80 and will be going up to $100 for the reprint.

It could be, if you meant to use worse and simply misspelled it. But it could also be choosing the wrong word. Getting the wrong form of the word is worse than mispelling it, but hardly the worst mistake you could make.

This is a scam that has been around for awhile. There is a similar scam when you can find an amazing price on an item but if you read the description they say something like "cannot guarantee delivery to all areas in the US" and coincidently you happen to live in one of those areas. They keep your money and note that you were "warned" about delivery.

What is worst than Kickstarter?

Not being able to crush your enemies, see yourself driven before them and hear the lamentation of your women!

What was the question again?

Oh, yeah, a scam. You have to be very aware of anything related to boardgames that is not fulfilled directly by Amazon. Sadly a good amount of gamers are known for not having a lot of patience and impulse control, people have learned a lot of tricks to separate the fools from their money, and in this hobby some of us fools can pay a lot of money for a piece of cardboard.

My favorites are the out-of print or rare boardgames that are advertised for $40 or less, but for some misterious reason the shipping cost is always $80 or more (only visible after clicking and reading carefully). Sure, right, shipping costs, okay.

This is what happens when people do not have PATIENCE! The 'have to have it ow' crowd is always a market for these people.

Wow I have never heard of that delivery scam! I only ever had one problem with an item never arriving and the seller disappearing.

What?

You want to complain about "worst" in the subject when someone put "up-charging" into the body?

That's right up there with "on-forward" for teeth-grindingly meaningless business babble.

I wonder how the Expedited Shipping option is working on that? At least they made that available for those of us that want the game as quickly as December 20.
