Updated the thread title, although $23.21 still seems pretty good (if you want the game). 54% off list.

This is a Richard Garfield game, so it is not surprising that it is good. It is, I think, one of the better Queen Games they have put out in recent years, and is most definitely worth the price.

Just by reading the description and looking at the images on here it sounds a little like Medieval Academy. Has anyone played both and could comment on this?

Side Note: If you haven't heard of Medieval Academy I highly recommend it!

I watched the video Zee Garcia form Dice Tower did and confirmed my suspicion. It's very similar to Medieval Academy although a little simpler but does have a little different feel to the way it plays.

I've played both and I prefer the Treasure Hunter to Medieval Academy, although I really like both.

Treasure Hunter I feel like is simpler in what has to be tracked, but still lots of decisions (do I hold onto Dogs, or shoot for the high point treasures, or get special cards). With Treasure Hunter, there are treasures that are really trash and I laugh every time somebody gets stuck with those. In MA, you might get negative points (I usually do) but SOMEBODY is always going to get those, so it's not as funny/enjoyable to me. I feel like I smile/laugh more with Treasure Hunter than Medieval Academy.

I own both and slightly prefer Treasure Hunter, but the expansion is impossible to find and Queen doesn't seem to have any plans to continue support for the game.

And... now back to $17.09. I suspect this game is just going to hover in the $14 - 18 range indefinitely.

I looked at this game online and it seems pretty boring. Maybe I'm missing something. I'm surprised the MSRP price was so much to begin with.

Back down to $13.00, as reported here:Treasure Hunter - Amazon - $13, all time low, it appears!

Also available at the same price from a 3rd party seller (fulfilled by Amazon) for the same price so no tax. I bit.

Just bought this for $12.50 from a 3rd party seller, fulfilled by Amazon. Amazon is also selling it for $12.50, but there was no tax with the 3rd party seller.

It will go down to add-on prices (below $7) like the other overstocked games...if people don't buy now.
