Low price for a divisive game.

BGG

Amazon

Appears to be the lowest ever according to CCC and is one-day prime shipping eligible. Not sure about the seller, but there's a second seller offering it at the same price as well.

December 23rd price was 27.54. A great deal either way for someone interested in the game.

I don't see that on CCC - it's showing $29.99 as the lowest ever on my screen (on December 13th). Maybe I'm misreading it?

I heard it has a low rating because of bad rules.

Yeah I've started noticing that from Portal. Wait for the second edition to clean up the rules.

The component quality is great. I feel that sub $30 is a great deal. However, what are we doing over the rules? Any fan based readjustments yet?
Wish I had waited for all the hype to fizzle out. Lesson (hopefully) learned! I pre-ordered around $49
I will have to get it to the table at some point.

Portal released a "Rules Almanac". Just learn the game from that; it's not too bad.

Although I refer to CCC quite a bit, I have noted that its not all that accurate. There will be times when data is not accurate, but it's good enough to make the info useful.

The rules are really not that bad, they just seem bad because some stuff they should tell you is actually in the app instead. I think $30-ish dollars for the game is a real steal. Now i will say that the game is kind of bloated and fiddly and I wish the app would keep track of more things for you but it's not a bad game and while I have yet to get to play through any of the campaigns I feel like that is where the game will really shine.

I think the issue with CCC is that it can't continuously monitor all prices, but rather samples them frequently, perhaps on the order of once or twice per day. Consequently, it can miss brief flash sale dips, and often lags sudden price changes.

Keepa can see Lightning deals. However, I feel CCC does better with historical graphs? CCC actually requests for donations? I do not see this on Honey or Keepa? This has always made me wonder about CCC? Brickseek and another tool for lego tracking works for board games as well and will give you updates. Inventory for Target and Walmart on brickseek and the other one I thought would check more stores like ToyRus?

I'm surprised to see the game this low already. I think I will give it a shot considering the almanac.

Had not heard of Keepa before now. Thanks for mentioning it.
