Portobello Marketby Playroom Entertainment is selling for just £4.99 shipped at www.pharmacyplace.co.uk and Amazon UK, fulfilled by the same seller.

It seems my original post regarding this deal I would like to share was deleted by the admins for "pharmacy spam", but a more tedious inspection would reveal that I was simply trying to share my joy at finding a good gateway game such as this at this price with my fellow geeks.

When I first saw the deal I thought it was way too cheap but my copy of the GAME arrived today. Note that the same game sells for £24.99 at BoardGameGuru, without shipping, so this is a real steal. The game is quite well received as well, and has received a glowing review from Tom Vasel as well.

Cheers guys!

True enough - I verified it and the game is selling for £4.99 with Free shipping.

Seems legit and a pretty decent deal. Shame I've already got the game

Now showing as "out of stock" on their website. Amazon reckons they still have 6 copies... but I'm guessing that's because they haven't updated the direct sales on amazon yet.

Id like to trade for it, but it seems I don't have anything you're looking for. I'd gladly trade some $ for it though.

Their site says 20+ in stock. I've just ordered two copies direct from their site for £8.98 delivered. Found a 10% discount code on the web. Hope it comes through!

Price as shipped to me in Ohio came to £14.53 (about 23 dollars), which is even cheaper "shipped" than toysforthought's current price if you were to only buy that game.

Looking through your games for trade, I'd be interested in either The Resistance (read "very interested") or Atlantis. GM me if that sounds appealing...

I just got an e-mail telling me that my order was cancelled, which is strange since I'm pretty sure I got in on the deal before most people in this thread.

I've recieved a dispatch notification from Amazon.

If they've run out of stock, I guess they fulfilled their Amazon orders first, as I ordered after your post, Boris.

Their website does now say over 20 in stock, however. Strange!
