Wish I picked this up from them when they first had it in stock for $112. I hesitated, and it went up to $126. Now $140.

I'm sure it'll be on sale somewhere sometime soon. Maybe B&N...

But I know several people who are just waiting for it to come in stock anywhere at a "reasonable" price - so I'm posting it here.

Edit: Well, those went quick...

Are they just slowly trickling these out into the market to maintain scarcity?

Could be, but more likely they are just getting shipped as they are available. Its quite a popular game, it does make me think that in about 6 months or a year it will be available back in the 80-90ish range on sale

Or the current printing allotment has sold out and MM got these on the secondary market at higher than their normal wholesale.

Well for those that those still looking....Funagain decided to quit gouging (was $199) and have Gloomhaven listed for $140 as well. If you have their +15% tier discount, it brings it to a much better $119.

If you need it now, then you pay the $140. If you can wait, you will pay much less in the near future. I think that is the script that has been followed since forever.

Fair point. This is a voluntary/luxury purchase, so I guess not...still, chaps my hide seeing games over msrp. Especially when I want it, and right now!

Nah. They had huge distribution problems last time where many pre-orders weren't filled while other stores got copies that weren't pre-ordered.

So this time around the distributors were extra strict about making sure all pre-orders were handled before additional inventory was released for regular orders. (my store had to wait a few weeks even after it was showing as "in stock" at Alliance)

I will say that having finally received my copy last week, this is definitely a game that warrants the $100+ price.

At close to 20 lbs this behemoth is by far one of the heaviest games in my collection. In fact I believe the only two that weigh more are War of the Ring Anniversary Edition sauron and Mega Civilization. whitetaj:

Definitely not something I'm going to be carting to game nights. Anyone wanting to play this one is going to come to the game to do so!

If you want to reduce your heavy (weight) games, I could take that MegaCiv off your scale and store it in my closet. Of course, it will never hit the table, because its ACiv, but the crate will look nice in the room.

I'm actually looking forward to the forthcoming East/West separate editions so I can get rid of this unwieldy crate. It's not even a beautiful box like Twilight Struggle, Dungeon Lords, or Small World collector editions it's just... big.

I had already sworn off Funagain due to their "sales" where they have such limited quantities that it feels like clickbait. Try to buy something and it "sells out" in the meantime, and they change the price in your cart without telling you. That's just shady.

Hearing they were scalping Gloomhaven confirms my decision to not give Funagain my business again.

The MM new arrivals page shows 34 in stock, so I don’t think this batch will last long.

At least Funagain has reasonable shipping to Canada for this game... only $109 for the cheapest option.

Granted MM isn't a lot better at ~$92 shipping to Canada.

It is a heavy game but shipping costs are ridiculous.

I was just looking at some airfares last night and there were some return airfare tickets from Edmonton to Phoenix for ~$207 USD for late Feb.

If I were buying 2 copies of Gloomhaven it would literally be cheaper to buy them a plane ticket and sit them in a seat and give them the travel experience they so richly deserve instead of spending time in a stodgy mail truck for over a week.

Following Gloomhaven prices has been like following the Dow Jones lately.

Gloomhaven's actually what's causing the market volatility.
