How limited or rare is this game? Especially since it appears CSI and other e-retailers have many copies in stock in the USA right now?

What was the print run? I read 500-600 copies -- is it accurate?

Everything you have said here is accurate and I think that may speak for the game itself. I have kept my eye on this since the Kickstarter, and to be honest I just don't know if was groundbreaking enough to demand a 10,000 copy run. Worker placement and pick-up/delivery. Both of those are up my alley as well as the theme. I really want this some days...other days I don't see it getting to the table very often.

It's relatively rare, I don't remember seeing exact numbers.

It's a decent game, but just not worth the $75 asking price from the online stores here, so I passed on it.

Just to confuse the debate. This cost me about €65 at Essen 2012 and it has gone down a storm each time I've demo'd it to a new crowd. Not just a ho-hum-run-of-the-mill worker placement by any stretch. I think the opaque nature of the rule book has reduced the profile of this gem.

But there is an excellent rewrite of the rules in the file section here, so don't let the rules scare you off. It really is very good.
