Ever committed to emptying your wallets and bank accounts Amazon just dropped the price of Discworld: Ankh-Morpork to it's all time low of $32.30, a significant savings over every other OLGS and with free shipping to boot.

Discworld: Ankh-Morpork (standard edition) $32.30 with Free Shipping at Amazon



Personally, I'm holding off until I've played it because despite a very solid rating, it sounds a bit too random and chaotic for my taste. For those that have been hankering for this particular dish of zany fun it's not to be passed up at this price.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Paid twice as much for the collector's edition straight from Treefrog about two weeks ago...

No regrets. It's a great game. laugh

If Hot Deals posts were scored like school-projects you'd get top marks for comparison shopping, links, price history, and the picture is really just begging to be teacher's pet! Nice job.

A+

Funny I had actually ordered it from Amazon on Friday at $39 which was a decent price with Free shipping and I noticed earlier they were dragging their feet in shipping it.

Then I saw this so I was able to cancel and reorder it at the new price - thanks!

All the lauding of the info I linked to just highlighted what I overlooked… a link to the BGG game page! Edited for extra credit.

Hey All,

Is it worth putting out the extra cash for the Collector's Edition or is the base game good enough?

Thanks

If you are a lover of the game, or buying it for a Pratchett fanatic, the collector's edition is a nice upgrade. From a gameplay standpoint there is virtually no difference as far as I can tell. Unless I've missed something the only differences are:

- New box art
- Thicker player aid card
- Slightly larger board 620x540mm vs 520x430mm
- Wooden coins
- Removal of the number 8 from all places in the game (cards, board, die) in adherence to the Discworld mythos of the books.
- An included poster

I'm a sucker for chrome in general, but this seems a rather minor upgrade compared to many other collector editions out there.

The resin tokens in the Deluxe edition look absolute stellar though, but then it comes down to whether it is worth another $90 over the collector's edition for that alone. (and $120 from the standard!)

If I fall in love with the base game I'll probably just seek out theme appropriate replacements that weren't specifically made for this game.

The Treefrog Games sale will end this month. It is a great time to buy the Deluxe Edition. I did and the game looks amazing.

Todd is totally correct. Deluxe is so beautiful, it's sinful.

I believe this has expired. Now showing as $39.54.

A solid "A" for the OP, though: you have done your homework. (The extra marks balance out the marks lost for not keeping a watchful eye on the deal to note the moment it expired. )
