Miniature Market must have just gotten another restock of Scythe. Looks like 85 copies at the moment at $80.

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/stm600.html

I know some Hot Deals police may argue this isn't a Hot Deal, but it is a hard to find, in demand game, and we've been told these sort of postings do not belong in the game's specific forum as it is promoting a specific store.

I'm totally OK with having "hot re-stocks" in the Hot Deals forum.

But some may disagree. (hint: rhymes with Meffy-Mef)

Not sure I've seen MM sell something with 20+ quantity at full MSRP with no discount.

It's funny how it seems that every time MM gets more copies, they bump the price up a little more. When they got their initial stock last year fresh off the Kickstarter, I think it was $60.

Supply and demand!

Not hot http://www.gamenerdz.com/scythe

per the web site 6 in stock at $62.97 with free shipping.

21% less with free shipping, I'll point out again just because it's in stock doesn't make it a hot deal

And I'll point out that if you would have posted the GameNerdz deal you likely would have gotten 20+ thumbs and the thanks of many people who have not been able to buy one of the hottest releases in recent memory.

But you didn't, because you're a greedy little boy who didn't bring enough for the entire class!

Any which way you look at it, the game is worth any price you can afford to pay. I have the retail version but I tricked it out with a custom insert, the expansion board, invaders, metal coins, ceramic resources, promo cards, etc etc.

I'm not sure how much money I have 'into' it at this point (prob around $200) but I wouldn't sell my copy for twice that. It's rewarding 'tricking' it out, especially a game this good. Not to mention the beauty of the artwork and what not.

$65, $80, $119.....whatever. The game is GREAT. The artwork and upgraded components are breathtaking. Don't let paying 'more than someone else did' prevent you from getting a game this awesome if you want it..

I will never own the game, I've played it and really, I'm one of the few that do not find anything amazing with the game.
I had done research on this game due to another hot post at MSRP and people get so excited they don't realize when something comes in stock it's normally at multiple outlets, but everyone is always trying to be the first they don't do their homework and normally post garbage like this and then people defend it.

I recall posting the new edition of Nefarious, when it was finally released and I had the lowest posted price but it didn't matter people were upset because it was a back in stock it didn't even matter it was the lowest price across the board.

This type of lack of research makes this thread worthless and the lower price I posted took me two min to find. (Due to an already posted thread)

Once I heard the digital version was coming out this year, I sold my KS (standard) copy for a decent price and will play that for solo.

I love everyone's passion, I think everyone has a game they love, if the requirement of posting a hot deal is opinion and love then I think everyone's on target, although I thought when I subscribed to the hot deals it would be hot deals not, "this is a great game and back in stock so it belongs here", Although I would say that's just "my opinion" which doesn't make me more right then the original poster, although there are guideline for a reason, I want to see discounted games posted here that are also fun.

And FYI Miniature Market is a great deal if your reference is Funagain at $89.00

For those that missed out on the other deal, it's now out of stock, you can still get a copy at FRP games
http://www.frpgames.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=119890#....

$64 and they have a flat shipping for $9.95 or less, that's a total $74 out the door.

Also check out their clearance section they always have a gem hidden in there way below market price

Don't really want to but I have to ask: Wasn't this $72 a few days ago at MM, and was mentioned in the last wacky thread about Scythe in Hot Deals.. ?

I mean "wacky" like as a positive attribute, like a funny, recurring event that is is not annoying at all, and is probably helpful to other people.

Thanks for this! Been waiting to get this in the $60 range and managed to pick up one of those 6 copies you mentioned!

Looking at the last page of the Hot Deals forum, there are 15 threads for games I already have, 20+ threads for games I am not interested in, and only 3 threads for games that I am interested in, but think I can get a better price if I wait. There were also 3 threads that resulted in me buying something. While I do have to separate the wheat from the chaff, very little of the chaff comes from back in stock threads.

This post should have settled the "is an in stock post a hot deal?" question once and for all.

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/25034063#25034063

Continuing to whine about it, especially numerous times in a single thread, is way off topic.

And "Not a hot deal."
