So I'm not sure how wide spread this deal is, or what, but I definitely bought Risk: Balance of Power at my Atlantic Superstore last night for $3.99 plus tax.

It was strange because it wasn't listed as a "sale item" or "liquidation" like some other games. Just straight up, regular price tag, $3.99. I've seen this elsewhere for almost $30, so I thought I'd mention it.

I'd really like to get my hands on this game and it's not available in the U.S.

I don't know how much shipping would be, but, if it isn't too high, I'd gladly pay someone to snag a copy or two for me.

Same here. Anyone interested in doing a good deed sending one to Spain?

A rough guess would be $15-20 for shipping. I'll see if I can find a couple copies here.

Would you expect that to increase drastically with two copies in the box? I know there is some magic weight limit at which shipping to/from Canada becomes unreasonable. I just don't know what that limit is.

This might be worth an investigation at the Superstores on the other side of the country. Hmm....

Thanks for the hot tip. Keeping my fingers crossed they'll be some in central Canada also.

I just checked my local superstore and the didn't have any. It doesn't look like they sold out as there was no space on the shelves. I remember them carrying the game around Christmas but don't recall seeing it for a while. .

LOL. Somehow I doubt Jordan will be able to supply everyone with a copy - those who do get one better offer a generous tip.

Checked the local Superstore here (Ontario) and Risk: Balance of Power was still selling at $27. The game looks interesting... but not $30 interesting. Oh well, was certainly worth checking.

I haven't seen Risk: Balance of Power in the department stores for at least six months. I don't know if it was a short print or something they only plan to release during the holidays. R:BOP is becoming hard to find.

I bought 2 yesterday, they were 9.99 each. I will go see them and try to match them at 3.99 since it's the same store (though in a different city 3 hours away) from JordanZ.

Also $27 at my local Superstore in Alberta. They had 4 copies tho.
