Amazing how three or four years ago they couldn't give these things away... I have not seen them on the market for a while and have never seen them in a game shop.

Van Tran,

It isn't local, but there's a store here in coastal NC that has a copy that they are willing to sell for $25. They said they might be willing to ship. If you call them you can find out more info:

901-238-4209

Disclaimer - I don't work for the place, nor am I friends with or related to anyone there. I just happened to see a copy when I was there a couple weeks ago. Would have bought it myself, but I already have two! (One that I bought full retail when it first came out, and one that I found at Toys R Us last summer for $8!!!

Good luck. I hope you find one - it's an AWESOME game!

Here in my country singapore, my online retailer still has a copy. it's not cheap, and you'll have to suffer shipping cost, but you can check it out and see if it fits your bill.

All prices are in SGD.

Thanks. I will def check out that store in NC. I don't know if I should try calling local TRU or something. This game looks really fun, I just wish I had gotten into games like these other than usual Monopoly stuff etc. earlier!! If I knew it was a game I would enjoy I wouldn't mind footing the extra cost as per eBay, but I've never even played it.

    Nexus Ops was available for a long time at ToysRUs at an inexpensive price. There's a lot of copies out there. If you don't have any luck finding it via retailer, look for it in people's trade lists. Go here --> http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/items/boardgame/1536... It's a big list of people that are looking for other games and are willing to trade away their copy (or one of their copies) of Nexus Ops for them. If you don't have something to trade for it, go poaching. Find someone with it that is looking for an in-print game that is relatively inexpensive, come to a mutual agreement with them, then have the game they're looking for delivered from an online discounter directly to their house. They'll be happy to make the trade and you'll get Nexus Ops.

    This sounds like a fair amount of work, but for Nexus Ops I recommend it. Just a sweet little game. Very underestimated in my opinion, it's a tactical little euro with a lot of variability to it. Plays two, plays three, plays four, plays two teams of two. Truly unique look and feel to it as well.

    By the way, I got my copy by trading away Last Night on Earth and a toy truck on Fortress: Ameritrash. That was one hell of a deal!

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

In case you didn't find a copy yet (or for anyone else looking for a copy):
I noticed tonight that my local (Gainesville FL) "HobbyTown USA" has a new-in-shrink copy on their shelves for the original retail $45. The guy said he thought they do shipping upon request. 352-377-0077.

They also had a copy of Vegas Showdown, also new-in-shrink, also $45. (VS was in that same series of Avalon Hill/Hasbro games and is also OOP)

In the BGG Marketplace there are three USA sellers listed.

Are you adverse to ordering a game from a fellow BGG'er?

All my dealings have been top notch.

I doubt you will find the game online for chaeaper than it is listed... well, at least until after you purchase it. LOL

So it's more like
Quote:
still haven't found one {at the right price}


It's a great game and in my opinion it's worth the current BGG marketplace prices! (I really lucked out and got it at ToysRUs for $20 when they had warehouses of it they were trying to clear out, but I still feel it's worth twice that).

That is exactly right! I am trying to find someone to trade my Sid Meier Civilization to for this game.. or sell that game and take the money to invest in Nexus Ops!! I just feel like so many people got it for so cheap and now the price is high!!!! I just contacted head 2 head games because they never got back to me after I called them. But we will see...

£35 including shipping, from Australia (to UK). Flash to bang it took 2 weeks from www.milsims.com.au in Oz - they must be using some sort of steroid-popping uber-pigeon to courier the games cos the shipping estimate was 8-10 weeks. Anyway, good experience and I commend the retailer.

Yeah, that pigeon must have been on some serious drugs!
I ordered the game and it took exactly 1 week from they send the game till it arrived in Denmark!
Thank you for making me aware of the shop.
