Can't believe it, but that's a pretty good price. Although it calls it a card game, I am sure its the board game.

The picture and decription imply Ticket to Ride but there is Ticket to Ride: The Card Game in existence, so it could well be that. Not such a hot deal if it is the latter but it's not a bad price.

I guess its the board game, because of the weight is 1.37kg + it was previously listed at 34.99 GBP.

Great Offer!
Thanks for this!

Yeah, I wondered about that. But the price drop makes me think its definitely the board game.

Unavailable now.

What a weird place to categorise it: Home> Gifts & Jewellery > Kids' Birthday Gifts > Boys' Birthday Gifts > 10 Year Olds > Ticket To Ride Card Game

I hate the fact that my very first post here has a negative vibe, but Tesco's website has a long history of pulling the great offer/refund in error trick with their videogames. I haunt a console gaming forum and there's been so many complaints about this that I believe it's been refered to a consumer watchdog.

A shame, as I still would have taken the chance on the game at that price.

And yes, you can look forward to plenty of spam in your inboxes now.

hey folks,

this deal worked for me - I selected to 'collect at store' rather than to be sent the game by post. Bought two copies and sure enough I collected them this evening after work.

I can confirm it is the boardgame, not the card game.

Might be worth trying reordering selecting collect at store...

Just been looking at Ticket to Ride Europe on Tesco Direct in case that also comes down in price, and I noticed Ticket to Ride had been reduced further to £12.56 (it's still unavailable before anyone gets excited).

I clicked on the page and noticed at the bottom Tesco Direct makes reference to price matching Amazon, but it seems they've price matched the Ticket to Ride Card Game, rather than the boardgame, hence the huge reduction in price.

If that's the case then at least I can stop checking the TtR Europe price.

How quickly can we make a copy of Agricola the Card Game and sell it on Amazon for £1.99, hoping the Tesco price match applies?

I've also taken a punt, again for collection in store.

Should find out by Friday whether or not I've nabbed a bargain.

I've just put a collect in store order through too. Should be able to pick up Thursday evening. The dimensions and weight are certainly not for a card game (almost 30cm square at 1.3 odd KG) so hopefully they don't hand me a small package over!

Fingers crossed.

After seeing a couple of posts that people have successfully placed orders and seeing that the website said "in stock" I'm giving it a shot too. Also picking up from local Tesco on Thursday evening. Still seems too good to be true.
