Worth a $100? Probably not. I think it is a really good game. I see it as an advanced Ticket to Ride - especially when I have 6 players. I think I paid around $60 and felt it was a good purchase at that price.

The question would be how much value do you put on each play of a game and how many plays you think you will get in. If that amount is over $100, then the value should be worth it to you.

I sometimes say a $1.00 a player an hour is a good gauge for me. So at an hour and a half a game and mostly playing 6 players with this, I think $9.00 a full game is a decent gauge. I played my copy 6 times. So I am a little light at $54 vs $60 paid. But like I said, I feel I got my value out of it already.

Currently at $52, and it's a steal at that price.

It's my #1 favorite game and highly recommended. Rumor has it that Alan Moon will release a new/modified edition "someday" (it's been rumored for at least 2-3 years).

Isn't this functionally equivalent to Airlines? There's a copy of that in the marketplace for $30.

I picked up Airlines for $20 at a game auction at Endgame in Oakland and love it, but for some reason most of the people in my group never want to play it.

Played for the first time over the Christmas holiday and have to say this game is as good as advertised. Can't wait to play it again...
