Still need a copy of Ticket to Ride: Switzerland but discovering that everyone is out of stock? Don't want to pay some guy on Amazon $80? Keep getting outbid on eBay?

That was me, pretty much. So last week I spent a couple of hours digging through the Google listings for the game, contacted about a dozen game stores (home and abroad), and dug up a few places where it's still in stock! Hope you find this useful:

Baby Bliss in Northville, MI
$25 + $5.95 S/H
http://www.babyblissnorthville.com/
No e-mail, but you can call 248-344-0001 . They've rapidly dropped from about 5 in stock to 1, which was a window model and therefore a bit faded. Game is still new, though.

Clever Soul Games
http://www.cleversoulgames.com/44539/13925514.html
$21.99 + $8.59 S/H
E-mail correspondence indicates that their stock listing ("5 in stock") is indeed accurate.

----------------------------

Willing to look oversees? Then try these:

19.95 euros (about $28.10)
http://www.spellenwinkeldeburcht.nl/webshop/index.php?main_p...
Website says 1 copy is available


$43.10 Australian dollars (about $38.85 USD)
http://www.seropeco.com.au/category7_2.htm
Website says it's "Back in stock"

USD $ 48.99
ORBIS Games, Canada
http://orbisgames.ca/store/product.php?productid=16271
Website says they have "4 item(s) available"

I had no idea they were now difficult to obtain.

I guess YMMV - I went through at least a couple dozen "Out of Stock" listings before I found a store that still had some.

I'm sure you're right, I just wasn't aware of it. I just checked on Amazon and that price is absurd! I'm glad you were able to find some reasonably priced copies.

Both the US stores are now out of stock. I hope they plan on re-releasing this expansion. I was totally planning on buying it a few weeks ago when suddenly it vanished!

One more source found - this one in Portugal:

Quote:
Yes, we have it in stock for 15 € + 17,7( up 1kg) or 27,7(up 2kg)


If I converted that right (assuming the 1kg shipping cost), that's $44.83 USD.

I'm pretty sure cleversoul games still has it. I ordered it the other day, and they've bumped their number in stock from 5 to 4 (so I assume that was me). I certainly hope they still have it anyways.

I tried ordering one from cleversoul three weeks ago and they canceled the order because they didn't have any. I guess they're just bad about stock....

Of course, if you do get one shipped from them, please report back so I can place another order!

Nor did I. I just bought Ticket to Ride last week and figured it would be easy to find the Swiss map. I was wrong, apparently.

It seems like a pretty popular (and recent!) expansion to already be out of print. What gives?

I'm sure this is just normal cycling. Most games do the same thing, available, then unavailable for a while they schedule/print the next batch, then available again.

Eventually, they hit the point where there are no more plans to print up any more batches, and that's when things are *really* Out of Print.

I doubt TTR: Switzerland is at this point yet.

It is unusual for Days of Wonder though, or at least it seems unusual for them, to have no much time between printings, and for there to be no word "on the street" if it's even scheduled for a reprinting.

Still can't believe I traded away 6 copies since I picked up a bunch from ThoughtHammer's 2008 March Madness sale for essentially the equiv of $20 (in games, gift certs or geek gold) each. No wonder they started trading so well, if only I had known!

Maybe the printing presses are busy with tons of copies of Mystery Express.

Will be interesting to see how it plays out down the road.
