I put it in my cart, then really thought about it for a minute. Went back to shopping, checked gold box deals, and there it was again staring at me... for $16.15

I mean...how do you say no to that? Especially after just buying the base game for $43.99

Ridiculous.

Amazon has 'officially entered dominated' the board game market.

I almost want to complain because I'm reading this literally right after I got notification that mine shipped out after I bought it for $20, but that seems silly.

Also - TI3 is now selling for $63 (Chaos in the Old World is also up from $27 to $43)

They always have been, if you have the right timing...

If you catch them at the right time, Amazon can be sooooooooooooo much less expensive then even wholesale pricing on CERTAIN games. Have been a Amazon customer for over 10 years, and a prime member for over half that time.

My past amazon haul:
Mission Red Planet - $4.99 shipped
Midgard - $9.99 shipped
Starfarers of Catan: 5-6 Player Expansion - $10.00 shipped
Heroscape Swarm of the Marro Game Set - $12.00 shipped
Hasbro Heroscape Marvel Game Set - $10.90 shipped
Nexus Ops - $10.99 shipped
Carcassonne: The City (wooden box) - $21.94 shipped
Cosmic Encounter (AH2000 ed) - $14.99 shipped
The Settlers of Catan - $14.99 shipped
Bobbin Bumblebee (remake of Loopin' Louie) - $6.80 shipped
Betrayal at House on the Hill (current version) - $18.99 shipped
Eketorp - $20.00 shipped
Titan - $23.49 shipped
Dragonriders - $9.95 shipped

I bought this for 30 only a few days ago. For 17, I have reordered it, used it to get free shipping on my 7 wonders leaders, and I will return the first one. This is madness, but I can't get amazon to approve a credit of $13 to my account. Their 30 day return policy and their no price match policy make no sense together.

I don't want to derail this thread, but you don't have to pay restocking or return shipping or anything for a 30 day return?

I need to know this too. Damn you Amazon for even making this a real concern.

You're going to have to pay for return shipping, so...

That's not necessary. I contacted Amazon CS this morning via chat and requested a promotional credit of $3.99, which they gave me, even though my item's "out for delivery" as I type this.

I'm glad that worked for you. I tried it twice with no success whatsoever. I'm gonna have to go the hard route. I would've gladly settled for a promotional credit. I order all the time from them.

Since mine hadn't shipped yet the customer service chat guy was able to cancel it from my order and re-add it at the lower price. Only $4 saved, but heck, I was sitting here at the computer anyway.

Wow. I have been considering trading away TI3 as I don't know if I'll ever play it more than every second or third year, but the expansion is sitting in my cart daring me not to buy it.

Also of note: Talisman 4th Ed. Dragon Expansion is $11.39 ($40 list price). http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-TM08-Talisman/dp/.... I don't own the base game and I'm considering snapping that up.

Nope, I did the same thing. I'm worse, though.
I bought it without owning TI, and also knowing that even if I HAD IT it would never make it to the table.

I just couldn't pass up on the bits for $17. I am an expansion addict.

(A used copy of TI is sitting on the shelf at Bookman's staring at me for $50, but there's a good chance it's incomplete (they don't check games well, if at all), and on top of that I would never get around to playing it! I sort of bought the expansion thinking I would pick this copy up, but really can't justify it!)

I don't know that I'd buy that one without the base game, though for $12 probably I would. It only has a few minis, though they're very nice. I am a sucker for both expansions and minis.
I am very thankful I am not a completist! I am able to skip the rare or expensive ones, so that's good.
