Zomg, cheapness. It was in my DotD earlier so I checked...41 bucks. Just bought Runewars last night, and don't want this as much. I really CAN'T buy this, but I suppose this may be the only time I ever see it this cheap. Wow.

Just pulled the trigger on all 3. Oh my God what am I thinking? I don't know anyone I could play that with

I guess worst case = sell on CL for modest profit. AMIRIGHT?

I did the exact same thing. I figured that I'd likely never see it this cheap again and if I was ever going to buy it now was the time. It's not like it's going to lose value if I don't like it.

Ugh, Amazon is tormenting me (and I'm sure others) by continuously making things cheaper a few days after the first deal. Ah well. I guess you can't complain about deals either way, heh.

Sorry, I meant because I already bought it at the slightly more expensive price. cry

I think I'll survive over the three dollar difference though, haha.

I just called amazon. They will not price match the order I placed YESTSERDAY for $20 more on the base game and the first expansion, but they will let me return it for a full refund, so I just ordered this again...

I'm not understanding this policy, but for $20 it is worth the hassle, I guess.

EDIT: I just cancelled my reorder. $20 is not worth the hassle. I'm still not happy!

Yeah, honestly some of the deals are so great to begin with it's hard to expect them to do even better! However, there is definitely a trend for many of these games of having a lower price a few days after the first deal.

Perhaps they don't see the movement they thought they would after a couple of days so they hit the price slash button...

or maybe... just maybe... one of you is a SPY and reports back to them... attempting to build holiday tensions between family members and stress levels over bank balances....

What you do is call and have them have UPS hold the order for pickup. If you don't pick it up after five days it is returned to Amazon and they credit you for the returned item.

That sounds like good advice. I just decided I'd rather have the game Monday than wait for it until after Christmas and deal with all the hassle and have another $60+ tied up at Amazon. I have missed a discount of $3 or $4 before and never really felt bad about it, but the full $20 is a little much. Oh well....

Yeah, I just pulled the trigger too... not even sure if I'll play it, but I'll probably never see it this cheap again! Merry Christmas to me!

This deal just got INSANE with the fact you can pair it with 10 dollars saved on 100 for today only using your MC. Time to "reorder" Runewars so I can save some extra buck.

Bah, yeah, I had to buy this too. Not sure it will ever see the table, but if nothing else it will be a potential trade item. Now I'm going to have to decide whether to open it and admire the pieces. Who am I kidding, of course I will! Hopefully I'll be inspired to find a group to play it...

Ahh, hell. I tried like mad to convince myself I didn't need this but I lost. Pulled the trigger on the main game. Thanks for the heads up, OP

$80 plus is not a bargain if I'll never get it to the table. I think I'm getting better at passing on great deals.

This, Runewars, and Chaos in the Old World are all in my Amazon cart right now. I'm not sure if I'll find these prices on these games again.

Then again, I don't much care for Ameritrash, and my wife hates it even worse. Heck, we can't even play CITOW 2 player.

Then again, a niggling voice says "But someday..."

What if I need trade bait later? Couldn't I just drop these in a math trade later?

Ugh...if it wasn't Christmas, I think I'd have pulled the trigger by now.

P.S. My wife flat out said 'no' to more games...that doesn't mean I've removed them from my cart, though.

I was weak and purchased Twilight Imperium + expansions. Same boat here...beautiful game and great deal...that may never hit the table. Whenever I ask my significant other what I should do, she encourages me to buy them. She's a bad influence. modest
