Ummmm why would I not get them from the marketplace for $199-$250. Me thinks Boards & Bits is pushing their luck. I call shenanigans.

Or you could just quietly download the entire rules and game-art online from some shady site. If they're not going to reprint the game and if prices are that stupidly high for it, I see people going down that route rather quickly. Not saying it's right or wrong - I have zero interest in this game, for example, but a lot of people end up resorting to that kind of solution when prices are stupidly too high like that.

One of those sellers has a 0 sales rating (although he does have a good trade rating). The other says the box has two ripped corners and some crushing damage.

I'm not saying that the B&B price is a "Hot Deal", but it's hardly "Shenanigans". They've been selling for around $300.

I bought a copy off of eBay for $275, plus shipping, which made it right around $300. Even though it was sold as "New and unpunched", it had some box damage, and it wasn't carefully packaged, so when I opened it, chits were everywhere. I've ordered Roads & Boats, another large Splotter game, from B&B's WA warehouse, and it was carefully packed and arrived in perfect condition (with free shipping as well, which wasn't cheap for them). If I had it to do over, knowing what I know now, I'd rather put it in B&B's hands.

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

I guess it's time to cash in on this giant game then. I don't think it sees enough play to not....

Hmm, not necessarily a bad sign - the same happened to me with my brand new copy from a retailer.
Maybe the trillions of tokens tend to loosen when the game has to travel a long distance to the customer?

while i agree with this sentiment..Antiquity would a job and a half with all the pieces. Might be worth $300 in printing and labor!

Anyone planning to ship one unpunched, take note - some Saran Wrap around the boards might be wise.
