That's strange .. the deal is still there looking from here... was even a better deal yesterday ...47% off.
Maybe it's based on your login location .. I'm in NZ here... hmmm.

Edit: Are you registered with them? I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

For me (USA) it shows as $37.95 (36% off).

I already have it, so I don't care, it's just weird.

Are they an American website? I'm wondering if I should order this as a present, but I'm worried it won't get here in by the time I need it (a week and a half).

I clicked on it once, it said $37.95. I clicked on it a second time, 30 seconds later, and now its $51.90. Considering the standard online retailer price is about $38.99 (which is what I just paid for it this morning), this hardly seems thread worthy. Not to mention the fact that everybody is seeing different prices, makes it look like a scam or something.

Edit: I am also in the US.

They are a UK website. Personally, I'd recommend CoolStuffInc.com, that's where I got mine, but its not hard to find this at most online stores. Just don't pay more than $40 for it before shipping.

I use BookDepository almost exclusively for FFG game and books for almost 3 years now. I can assure you it is no scam. BookDepository are an amazing store, even more so as they offer free international shipping, which means that even if they achieve only a $1 less than a discounted retail price in the US, it is about a 50% saving to non-US customers. As such, it is very thread worthy for non-US residents.

The change in price is purely to the fact that they taregt price by region (as do many larger chains) and the discount is likely to be temporary (another reason why its thread worthy).

A scam ... not likely, they're a subsidiary of Amazon.
All I've ever ordered from them ... and it's a fair amount ... has arrived with no problems.
As Luke does above, I get all my FFG stuff and books via them.

Free delivery, can't beat that.

I took a peek at Coolstuff .. gulp ... the shipping was more than the game itself.

BTW ... the Book Depository deal is still at 45% off .. for NZers at least, ha ha

I wasn't suggesting CSI for international buyers, I was suggesting it to the specific person I was responding to.

Aside from that, any place that touts "free international shipping" but fluctuates the price like that based on region, are basically scam artists. The shipping isn't free if they're charging me $20 more because I live in the US. Thats what I meant by scam, and it seems like an appropriate description to me.

Ordered mine from book depository yesterday. For ffg I also use foyles.co.uk, they often even cheaper, also free delivery, but sometimes take longer to get new titles for sale. I got legends of Andorra for about 26 uk pounds, a staggering 18 pound saving.

Well, I got my order dispatched email this morning so in this instance, i'm very pleased to have been 'scammed' out of £20.83.

I've just placed my order. At 38,49 Euro, that's much cheaper than any price you can get in Germany at the time. Thanks for the hint!

Same thing happened for me a minute ago. You could try deleting your browser's cookies and see if it goes back to $37.95. $38 shipped is less than any US online retailer right now.

Holy cow. Just picked this up for $32, including shipping to Israel.


The lowest I can find on Ebay is $84, and with the recent changes to shipping prices, the online stores are about the same.

This cannot be a bad thing

Just picked it up with free shipping to Australia for $29. I wouldn't be surprised if the shipping was nearly that much for the game!
