Hopefully it's not sold out and this is a situation like with a recent game deal when it appeared to be sold out while they were adjusting prices (which is conjecture, btw - who knows?).

Edited: No, per the talkback, it looks like it's sold out. I wonder how many copies they had?

Edited (part two): Looks like it's for sell again. Double-checking on Amazon (as per message below) - the price is close. Still a nice deal, if you prefer Tanga (which some people appear to).

Tanga: $18.99 (plus $6.99 shipping) ($25.98)
Amazon: $25.11 (free shipping)
Thought Hammer: $22.72 (free shipping at $100)
Miniature Market: $21.67 (free shipping at $75)
Troll and Toad: $21.99 (plus shipping - usually circa $10 plus a very small amount for additional items)

Not the best price, but still a nice deal...

No, it still shows available for me... maybe you have to be logged in or something. Doesn't really matter though, it's about the same price as Amazon w/ free shipping. It's actually a few cents cheaper on Amazon. Not a bad price, but not a hot deal.

I already own it. I just thought I would post that it was already sold out...which it's not. Even though I see that it is.

I think it might be the link. It said sold out for me also, and refresh did not work. I clicked on "back to all tanga deals" and there is was.

San Juan is a light Puerto Rico... RftG is much heavier in comparison, imho

VERY tempting, especially with the recent talk of the new expansion using only the base set and the new cards. Might be time to grab an extra copy of the base to make it easier...

Quick Tanga-related question, as I can't seem to find a place to ask something about the site itself --

In their previous design, they used to have all of the games on a separate page that you could easily bookmark. I clicked it a few times a day to see the latest deal come up, and actually bought quite a few things from them.

Is there a way to do this with their current design? I could just bookmark Tanga and scroll and click again, I know, but I'm looking to save myself a click. I'm a very busy man, after all.
