For $9.99. Mine had two copies. I don't have any interest because I have plenty of games and the box is pretty big.

It's also the day before Wednesday.

Seriously, it's an upscale Big Lots. Every so often you find something amazing. About two years ago I found a Theta game called Fire. Theta is a German board game company that puts out some expensive, usually all wood, games. I didn't think anyone imported them. So was I surprised to find 2 copies of Fire for something like $5 (clearance--yes, Tuesday Morning has clearance as well).

Just FYI, the designer has been trying to get these pulled off the shelves because these are apparently the old defective edition. I've seen these at Ollies for 9.99 too.

I'm not sure they are defective as much as they were an unauthorized released.

If someone does have/get the SKU, please add it to this Geeklist, so people can use the stock-checking feature. (Explained in the Geeklist.)

Take the advice of the designer... don't buy it. They are defective from a manufacturing standpoint...

Edit: I should really clairify that... Don't buy the old large box version.

Just as a note, they are the large box version. No, I didn't write down the SKU.

So, it's not so much an "unauthorized" version (it was produced through the correct channels). It's more of a "previously recalled" edition.

That's actually unclear.

It's been stated the tall-box edition was unauthorized/unlicensed. It's also been stated that it was recalled due to quality issues.

I find this interesting, as Temple Games has apparently previously had issues with other, unauthorized/unlicensed releases (Polarity).

Of course, no one who knows the facts is commenting, which in itself says something...

I have been trying my best to comment on as many threads as I can find. Most of everyone's questions concerning the differences between the 2 different versions can be found on the following thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/357151

The first run or known better now as the "big box" version was a discontinued product due to manufacturing problems that was illegally sold without my permision or knowledge making it an unauthorized and unlicensed product. As I have posted on many threads, I implore you not to purchase the old one because you will not be satisfied with it.

Please only buy the new "skinny" second edition seen above in the picture posted by

stop misrepresenting the situation.
I can't tell if it's deliberate, or accidental, but noone here that I know of has any problem whatsoever with new Tuesday Morning deals being posted.

Tuesday Morning deals that have been posted over 7 times.... that is another story.

There are hundreds of things on BGG where "people in the know" are mum, but this is not one of them.

Even from my cursory searches, the designer (?) has been pretty clear in the Pirate King forums about the details of the large box vs thin box versions, which I applaud.

Hey if anyone wants a copy of the game let me know. I'm happy to trade an extra sealed 2nd edition (smaller box) copy of it for just about anything on my want list.

I have spoken with Tuesday Morning and they have realized their mistake. They will be accepting all returns for full refunds. If you have any trouble, please contact me here and I will be glad to assist you.

I am sorry for the confusion and inconvenience. I hope you will give the authentic 2nd edition Pirate King a chance. It is available at http://www.thoughthammer.com/pirate-king-p-5785.html and at Winners in Canada. arrrh

I was just being a little sarcastic since I was once beaten up on the board for posting a duplicate Tuesday Morning.

Didn't you see my smiley face after my comment?

It's sometimes difficult to get sarcasm in a post.
