Walmart.com has it on clearance for $15. I checked some other online retailers and the game is in the $30 range everywhere else.

Here is the link:
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp?product_id=313263...

I've never played the game, but I thought that it might be of interest to some at BGG.

Wal-mart is the Devil! If you keep shopping there, someday that will be your only choice.

On another note, why don't they try selling the games in their stores? Not that I would buy it there but maybe someone else would.

I should just go dig up my copy and check out the colors of the pieces, but arent there rules and/or an expansion available from the manufacturer to add in other (2?) players?? Would a 2nd set of the game be usable for adding more players or do you have to order different colored pieces from the manufacturer?

You get bits/colors/boards for 6 people.

The expansions or whatever Eagle calls 'em give you 2 more boards (same as box), more cubes (also same as box) and 2 more armies (same as box but differently colored).

Hope that helps ya!

As much as I absolutely refuse to walk into a Wal-Mart in the Richmond area... I had to jump on this sale since I've been wanting this game for a while... To me, a Wal-Mart is like a roach motel... you can go in but you can't get out... at least around here. angry

At $15, still not worth the price.

They HAD Trump: The Game, too - for only $5.00. But that's gone. Underrated 80's game, actually. Although, you have to tape a piece of scratch paper on the box cover to avoid vomiting.

Well, there goes my "Don't buy any games in April" commitment. At least I made it 8 days!

8 whole days, eh?

I made 4 days before I ordered 3 games myself....

I wonder if I can keep convincing my wife that self-control is NOT a virtue.

Somehow I doubt it.

I was thinking about making an order through Walmart but decided to wait. I made the correct decision as I went out yesterday to the mall and walked into the Software etc. Sitting up on a shelf about 7 feet off the ground was an Age of Mythology Box sitting sideways. Figured I would take it down off the shelf since I had seen it in there about a month earlier. I checked the price, my 11 year old son and I looked in disbelief, the price was $4.99. This was the only one left and didn't have to think twice about making the purchase. This is our second copy of the game. We both really like the game and figure we couldn't go wrong with an extra game for parts and decks for more than three people. I thought getting my first game, factory sealed with shipping, off e-bay last summer for $15.25 was a steal. My son now calls me the $5 guy.devil

Anyone else still waiting on their copy? I've been 'in processing' for a few days now, and my delivery time just got changed from this week to next week.

I had a walmart.com order (non-game) in "processing" for a long time and it turned out to be an error. I had to call customer support a couple times and they tried to fix it but the problem happened again. It turned out that the item I had ordered was removed and re-listed at a higher price (the original was too good to be true - hence my order). In the end, though, they gave me the item at the original price I ordered it at.

Short answer: call customer support. It it is hard to beat Walmart for service. Your problem is probably different from mine, but most likely it will not resolve itself. And even though the help people weren't the most on-line savvy, they got it right in the end.
