Limited to 1 copy per customer, and they are charging $44.99, but this is still very good news if you are trying to obtain a copy!

Yes! Thanks for sharing this. I've heard CSI had a batch of 7 Wonders last week but I never saw any trace of it. Purchased

I saw when they had a few copies left and watched how they dwindled to zero. Couldnt pull the trigger myself...$33 for a light card game is a ripoff. (Dominion is 27 and you get tons more cards...)

So...initially release a FEW copies at normal price...wait for them to sell while the hype builds....and then release the rest of the stock at a higher price? (Yep, right now 20+ copies at $45...)Tsk tsk CSI! (They did that with Dominant Species as well...$79.)

I also noticed that they were not taking pre-orders for the 2nd printing while others were. Instead they were 'out of stock', so it wasn't possible to pre-order a copy at the previous 32.99 CSI price. Oh well. I'm sure they will find buyers. Any slacking Secret Santas out there?

It is likely that they obtained some through a different channel than their normal distributer, which cost them more. So while they are still offering it for a discount, it just isn't as big of a discount.

Yup, they did the same thing with Space Hulk. And Cory told me as such when I e-mailed him. I see nothing wrong with it.

Myself, I will wait until the product gets more into circulation before picking up my copy. I have enough to play with until then.

I always get a kick out of people complaining about a business that wants to be profitable.

Let alone when said business is already selling BELOW an MSRP. We're a spoiled bunch sometimes...

Dang, I knew I should have picked up a copy when they were in stock for 32.99. CSI is still my go to place for buying board games, kind of sad that they are raising the price. I guess I have to wait for the 2nd print unless anyone knows of a place that still has them in stock without gauging the prices.

Yeah, this is what gets me. I can see both sides of the price gouging argument for rare games that people jack up the prices of far above MSRP (like the Space Hulk re-release), but I don't see how anyone can call it price gouging when they're still selling 7 Wonders below retail price. If you ran to your local retail store when it came out, grabbed the first copy, and then resold it at the price that CSI is... you'd be down $5.
