I agree. I picked it up at $18 and both expansions for $10 each. The quality of the box and components is really good and for $10 even if you play it once and hate it. Gift it to a friend haha.

Call Walmart Customer Service. They may issue you a refund. I think it's up to 90 days.

Thank you for posting it!
Still not sure if I am going to like this game based on the reviews, but for $10 that's a low-risk purchase.

What do you want to know?

Just curious, why is this game suddenly going for so cheap in a few locations? Just overstock?

You're welcome.

Yeah, could never justify grabbing this before. Now it's worth a try. Even if my wife and I end up hating it and never playing it again, oh well... We've spent more on going to movies we ended up regretting.

Fog of Love was a Wal Mart exclusive game. Not sure how many were printed, but if sales dropped off, I'm guessing they are sitting on a ton of overstock.

Someone noted the following about the price drop

On the latest issue of Ludology, Jacob Jaskov mentioned that the exclusive deal with Walmart is going to be ending soon. Does anybody know the details? Which US distributors will be carrying it?

My wife and I don't like this game. But I am so glad others get to try it out! It's a great production and a wonderful experience for people that are more creative than we are.

Did you both play it out as how you would have reacted to each situation or did you try to roleplay somebody else entirely? I'm just wondering.

Roleplay. In one game, I was Devin (a banker with a fancy tie and BO) and she was Bev (an athlete with a facial scar). It was novel at first. But it was hard for us to not gamify the experience too much, selecting the choices based on our goal cards. We would start out trying to formulate a narrative. But it just devolved for us into selecting responses and moving cubes around. The game just wasn't our style.

BUT I definitely think people should give it a try! It might be a great game for you.

That was our experience although we did enjoy the story aspect. We just opened the third set that adds the break up destinies so we're hoping that will add a more competitive aspect to make the actual game part more exciting. But between the quality of the components, the rarely seen genre and storytelling style, and the price, it is definitely worth a reccomend even just as a casual, funny co-op.

Cool deal, I'll give it a shot. 10 dollars seems reasonable.
