This is the usual price, but shipping is usually between 5-7 dollars, so it ends up being an excellent deal.

Great game, especially if you like Tichu but only have 2 or 3 players.

Looks like its just free super saver shipping. Which amazon always offers with a $25 order of qualifying products.

I've been tracking the price of this product on Amazon, and the only time it was eligible for FSSS in the past it was at around $16. Otherwise, it has always been $9.99 + $5-7 shipping (which totals $14-16). Thus, I believe having a grand total lowered from $16 to $10 seems to be a very good deal (almost 40% off).

That's because many indie publishers/small publishers don't use Amazon FBA.
And they should.

After all, a retailer using FBA made this a hot deal.

This is my favorite 3 player game. Better than Tichu, in my opinion.
Worth the $10 for sure

You would need two decks of cards, because I believe there are 5 copies of each of the numbered cards, in 5 different sets, so youd have to edit the symbols on some of the cards. Also, the point value of the face cards is written right on the card for convenience.

For $10 I think you'd be better off supporting the company instead of doing that extra work. Also, if you don't have two sets of cards laying around or the supplies to edit them (and make them look nice (not to mention possibly making a reference sheet to easily recognize th bombs/trumps) it would prolly cost you about $10 to get all of that stuff together anyway.

You can play the 2 player game with a basic deck but the double sided wilds are quite nice to have. Some people also enjoy the point cards being marked, though I don't find it necessary.

I played the 2p game for a while with a standard deck, and it works fine. I was just waiting for a good price to purchase it, because I think it will allow me to teach more people with it. The colored cards are easier for beginners, as well as the player aids. Finally, having the option of playing 3p is worth the money. Sure, I could do it with 2 standard decks of cards, and then buy a deckbox, and then print the rules, and then create my own player aids... But it would cost me about half the price of the game. I think I can invest $5 on a game that I love so much.

I find it interesting how most people do not hesitate to spend 15, 20 dollars on movie tickets and what not, but when it comes to pay $10 for a game that will give them hours of fun, they become reluctant.

I'm in. Been wanting this for a while, now seems as good of a time as any. We play the heck out of Tichu, and now we'll have something similar when 2 or 3 players are around.
