I know I must be searching wrong, as I haven't found other threads about this after scrolling through many pages of the forum, doing Google Searches, Reddit, etc. So apologies if this has been asked recently and I just missed it.

I ordered a copy through Funagain Games for $106 with expected delivery in early 2018. I have a friend who is looking to get a copy and unfortunately that Funagain listed has been removed. Searches on Boardgameprices.com are coming up empty...

Anyone know of a place to get a copy at or near MSRP? Not interested in paying $250 on Amazon or the same on BGG Marketplace. Were there plans for any sort of extended retail release? Are there individual game stores who maybe bought stock and haven't sold it? Anyone bought a copy and decided they don't want it? Anyone have an extra copy and don't want to feed the resale markup machine?

Honestly, just trying to find a reasonably priced copy for my buddy.

Thanks in advance!

I don't expect any retail copies until after December 12th. This is the official release date to retail.

So I would just be patient or put in a pre-order with a retailer if they have any spots available.

That will be difficult. I'd suggest your local craigslist to see if you get lucky. Most likely in this timeframe you're only gonna find a used copy for that price range.

It'll be available at retail sometime in Q1. Just wait until then.

Here is some info someone might be interested in. It's given with the caveat that Gloomhaven is expected in retail in Jan 2018 with an MSRP of $140(based on my inexpert search foo of BGG threads).

With that stated, I noted that someone in the SF bay area is advertising a "Like New" copy on craigslist. I contacted the person and they said:

"Like-new. Carboard pieces/board tiles have been punched out and place in zip-lock bags. The legacy pieces have not been used. Legacy boxes (character types) unopened."

So if you need your gloomy fix real bad, you may want to follow this up and ascertain the pricing.
