Just picked this up. I think list is $45. On the Amazon page it says $65 but I'm pretty sure that's an exaggeration. Regardless, pretty sweet deal

Yeah, I've been watching this for the last 2 months. I just can't pull the trigger for some reason. I guess I'm hoping the Big Box goes on clearance soon.

Lancaster for the lazy.

Nice price. A handful of decent Queen games on sale, it seems.
Wish this would get a price drop in Canada too.

Re: Lancaster - $21.80 Amazon Prime
This was on my wish list for the longest time. The last time it was cheap I started reading more about it and found it was pretty bad with 2 players. Since 2 or solo are the most likely numbers I play I managed to control the impulse to buy it. Obviously ymmv.

$22 does beat the $26 price from

DEAD [Amazon] Queen Games fire sale - Alhambra $13.47, Fresco $18.89, Kingdom Builder expansions $10.50 - $14, etc.

however if you want Lancaster: Big Box you may want to wait some more

I bought this back when it was on sale for $26 and was pretty happy with that purchase. We've really enjoyed it with 3 and 4 players. I think this seems like a great deal on an underrated game.

Re: Lancaster - $21.80 Amazon Prime
Looks like grabbing it at $21.78 was the right move.

No better way to kill these "trickle" Amazon deals than to post them here. A month of hard work letting it drop bit by bit undone in a moment.

It's up to $25.04 atm.

(Nothing wrong with posting here, of course. It's a Catch 22. Let it drop to get the better price, vs letting ppl know about the good price, thus ending the deal.)

FWIW, I play a lot of solo and two-player games and I really enjoy this. Because of the bidding mechanic, it's a bit hard to solo though emulating additional players. It can be done though and is still enjoyable.

At two-players, I think it plays really well. It's just different than a three or four player game because there's not as much jostling for position. It ends up being less cut-throat and more optimizing your play while dealing with minor inconveniences which I actually like. It's a very different game but still really good.

Because of the Queens Games fire sale, I own most of their well known titles and this is probably my favorite.

GreatBoardGames.ca in Canada is selling the New Laws (18 of them) for only $4.95 CAD (about $3.60 USD).

http://www.greatboardgames.ca/lancaster-the-new-laws.html

Don't know about shipping to the States, but if you're waiting on Big Box to go down and you're not sure it will, the combination of this Amazon deal and the New Laws deal probably get you most of it at a great price. (I'm not sure what is included in Big Box tbf)

Already dead! I would have bit for that price but I'm not really worried about owning the expansions. I understand there's a lot of variety in the base game box. (Trying to curb my completist mania... )

I believe the big box includes the Henry V expansion (by far the most substantial change to gameplay with 3 different modules), the New Laws, and the rewards tiles (queenies).

I, like Misterboy, have also been watching the base game for a long time (which is now at $32.xx). I didn't pull the trigger because no one seems to sell the Henry V expansion and I can see that I would want it in the end. Having it jump in price makes it a lot easier for me to wait for a dip in the big box.

Not to feed your compulsions, but I'd keep an eye on it if you want to get it. I'm willing to bet it will come back in stock at a similar price.
