Automobile by Martin Wallace is in stock at Coolstuff Inc. They appear to have only 15 in stock so you better get them while they're hot.

Here's the link: http://www.coolstuffinc.com/main_boardGame.php?viewType=view...

Full Disclosure: I am not an employee of CSI. I am just a supporter of my favorite online retailer.

Cheers,
Keith

Why do that when it can be ordered directly from Treefrog for $70 shipped?

1. Loyal CSI customers have earned discounts that come into play with every purchase.

2. If you have another $30 game you want this is a good way to get free shipping.

I get a kick out of a base post in "hot deals" that doesn't even bother to list the price... if it's a hot deal one would think it would be because of the price not availability (which would probably be more appropriate to post under the game's page itself (and most likely as a reply to an existing thread, seems crazy to create a new thread for every place that stocks it)

In any case, I wonder if any of the UK retailers will ship for less than the equiv of US$30 as two have it for equiv of US$40...

but I'm in no rush to buy this game... prefer Brass and Tinners' Trail

I just did an order yesterday. Looks like I'll be putting another in when my magic cards I sent in on trade get there. On another note I just capped out at level 9 for customer rewards.

I got a copy from Green Knight Games in the UK for $53 shipped ($40 for the game and $13 for shipping). It's taking the slow boat...

Thanks for the tip. They're going fast.

Also, they have the new Formula D board 2 (Hockenheim/Valencia) in stock also.

Yep. It's all gone and we cannot get any more from Martin. We didn't even get to try it ourselves.

For any that may have missed it, this little tidbit was tossed in at the bottom of the description.

maybe it was

http://www.warfroggames.com/Buy%20Automobile.html

It says $60 + $10 ship but when you get to paypal it says 45 Euro which I'm guessing comes out to ~ $65 at current exchange rates

Folks do realize that the reprint is in the works and Mayfair is distributing in the USA... I'd imagine that even with Mayfair's (vertical market) price fixing policy I'd hope it comes out more affordable (though for those that really need signed and numbered....)

Yes, the Treefrog site says $60 + $10 shipping, but when the euros get changed into dollars it was a bit less than $65.
As for waiting for the reprint, most MSRP's are running in the $60-70 range.
And how much do I save anyway? $10 maybe?
In the meantime I get to play the game. That's gotta be worth $10.

I agree. The cheapest way isn't always the best . . . in fact, it usually isn't the best. I don't mind paying a few bucks extra to get my hands on something a bit faster.

i guess it also depends on your definition of "a few bucks"... in this case for Rik I assume there is nothing else he wanted from CS to bring the total up to $100 to get the free shipping thus it's a difference of probably $15 or slightly more

5 days from order to delivery from Treefrog. Nice.
And they may be running out. My copy is numbered 1408.

just a side note for those in the area:

when i was at coolstuff on Wednesday, I saw that they have 2 ding/dent copies of Automobile, selling for $55 a piece. It actually took me a few minutes to find the dings because they are so minor. It's literally a 1/8" dent on the corner of the box.

So, just a heads up if someone is interested and in the Orlando area...
