I've seen shops selling this promo, but it is available for generally less direct from Days of Wonder.

They are ripping you off. You can get it direct from DOW for the cost of postage.

And here's the news item on the DoW website that explains this offer. (You can't link directly to the item in the DoW shop.)

Mind you, the cost of postage for me came to $10 (in Canada though)

Postage costs us Aussies $15.41 - surely this is incorrect!

I walked into uncle's games and grabbed it for free. Just the cost of walking through the mall.

Honestly, I would be thinking of turning in these shops to the DOW people, let them deal with it. If I could, I would have asked for more, and mailed them to people needing it.

Yea, I bit the bullet and ordered from DoW because the shop near me was selling them for $16 bucks apiece. I was very dismayed at this. I mean, $5 I can accept, but 16!!! And they played it up to every customer too trying to encourage the purchase. Luckily I ended up with the necromancer's island last year from a different store, so I knew the deal.

I'm debating on whether I will take my business back there ever again.

I was able to pick this up from my regular shop for no cost at all.

Very cool and I appreciate it (especially as I see that other shops have been charging for it!)

Either find a real FLGS that you can trust or start buying online. If brick and mortar stores want to survive they can't do it by blatantly fleecing their customers--that's why we move to online retailers like Thoughthammer and Miniature Market who can offer deep discounts.

The text on the expansion is very clear:

"Promotional Expansion. Not for Resale."

My FLGS knew that I had previously bought copies of Small World and Underground, so just gave me a copy when I went in this afternoon.
