Someone's selling a copy of Capes & Cowls on Amazon for $200!

http://www.amazon.com/Capes-Cowls-Adventures-Wyrd-City/dp/09...

As much as I love the game, that's a bit rich for me. Glad I already own a copy.

I'd be tempted, but the $3.99 shipping charges puts it over the top for me.

And he's on BGG and isn't using the marketplace. Still, interested parties might be able to propose a massive trade instead...

I'm alittle concerned the seller's rating is 88%. That's not really high. I've gotten taken a few times on eBay with sellers under 90% so I'm alittle gunshy.

I wonder if purchasing the rights from the owner in order to publish the game would be economically viable. It seems to me like this would be a winner with a little PR. It seems to me that it would sell well enough for a good sized print run and make a reasonable profit at a price of $35-39 or so.

Of course, I know next to nothing about the matter except that it is a good game.

I believe this is the same gentleman that proposed a math trade on the game not too long ago.

Maybe he has two copies?!?

$200 is tempting, but the feedback scares me as stated above. I'd really like the game someday. I'm hoping (praying) for a reprint. Congrats to all the folks who pulled the trigger when it was first released.

Three little bears. One with a light. One with a stick. One with a rope. A spooky old tree. Do they dare go into that spooky old tree? Yes. They dare.

Now don't you go and think you've lost the title just yet. surprise All we know is the game's not on Amazon any more and that it's still marked as owned in the seller's collection here on BGG. Could be he just pulled it off of there for now. I know he's active in the math trades. Someone really wanting the game might want to convince him to put it up in the next one and see how that goes.

Seems another copy was sold on here. It was gone before I could even see how much it was.

I actually emailed the seller to suggest an auction as soon as I saw it. Just seems like it shouldn't come down to whoever happened to log on first, but I'm glad the buyer was one of the people who has been looking for it forever.

How do you find out the infomation in the link? I can never figure out how to find the info when I get an email that's empty, because someone bought it already.

I use a script, but if you know the transaction number you can find the details by adding the number to the end of this link. You can search for the number manually if you have an idea when the game sold. For example, the most recent transaction made in the marketplace is #82334 so you can increase or decrease the transaction number based on when it sold in relation to this transaction.

Ahhh So that's how it's done. I've been trying to figure that out for a while now. Many thanks for the tips and links.
