This game really looks like its right up my alley when it comes to games I enjoy but the price tag is a bit much.... i know I know its a good game and worth the price but with 3 little ones I can't quite justify throwing down 100 bills on this game. Is it realistic to think that this game will come down in price with further print runs or will it forever be out of my grasp?

thanks

If you get it online when the next print run hits, then you can probably snag it for closer to $65-70. I think it'll be a little while until the prices get much lower than that...

I just got my copy today. I won it an auction on BGG hosted by John Jumpshelf. With free shipping, it came out to $85 even...which is what I'd expect to pay for the third print run from an online store after factoring in shipping. So yeah, you can probably knock off $20 or so, but I highly doubt you'll get this game for less than $80 when all is said and done (no matter when you buy it).

MSRP won't come down, but it'll be easier to get it at a discount once this year's crush of demand is satisfied by additional print runs.

So you automatically have 3 people to play against?!? Dude, all the more reason to get it! Just make sure they don't try to eat the influence disks, they kind of look like candy.

No they don't!


Ok, a little bit.

I pre-ordered mine a few months ago (2nd printing) and I think I got it for $75. It was a bit difficult even paying that but after playing it I don't feel that way anymore. It's a great game, pretty easy to play, but it has a lot of depth to it.
