And even better, I managed to grab a PLAYTRADE copy (new) for £22.31 (Free delivery) from the Book Depository!!!

Hope they honour the deal as the same company is selling the identical game for £56.

A word of warning: I've bought on Playtrade before at very low prices and it has twice turned out to be expansions/different versions of that which I wanted!

Hope it works out fine for you, though!

They sent me a Goblin Army expansion! Not the game they advertised and pointless for the Westeros game anyway!

I'm now in the process of explaining to them that this was clearly not what was described/ pictured on their site. angry

Amazon are doing the Start reinforcements set for £16.49 and free postage - best I've seen it. That's from Amazon themselves, not a playtrader!

This is the response I got from The Book Depository after my email to Playtrade:


Dear Sir/Madam,
I'm terribly sorry to hear that the title you received is not what you ordered. To help us establish how this error has occurred, please could you provide us with the ISBN number from the back of the book you have received, this is a ten or thirteen digit number usually found on the back of the book above the barcode, as this will help us look into this matter for you.

Kind Regards,

Kirsty Halford
Customer Advisor


Fingers crossed.
I'll let you know what they say next.

Got my reply.

I am sorry to report that we have mislisted this title, and will not therefore be able to supply the correct item as advertised. We will refund you in full for this order.

There is no need to return the book to us.

Kind Regards,

Heba

Ah well, seemed too good to be true. BUT in all fairness to Book Depository they let me keep the expansion they sent.
I suspected that this was a genuine mistake on their part so it was worth a try. (I'm not going to an arsey customer and demand my 'rightful game' - I had enough of those types when I worked in retail.)

I went through the PlayTrade customer service and then Book Depository sent me an email the next day. All sorted out within 48 hours.

Good luck.
