did a microbadge ever get made? it would be epic if it was autoassigned by the system whenever a user posted the csi leonardo deal.

Apparently it's been on sale for a while... Oh well.

Sorry, I had no idea.

did original base post get deleted?

in any case the reason CSI appears to keep this very good game (and one of the original worker placement games that started the current WP craze) is that they still have quite a few copies to sell....

No hard feelings meant towards you, I see you're relatively new to the site. this game is a running joke because it's always on sale for that price for some reason. I guess they made way more copies than needed...?

I've heard it's a halfway decent game, but it's been posted as ahot deal so many times.. it's just too easy for some of us.

I still lament that I bought the game for $12.99 back when they originally had it on sale. Talk about overpaying for a good game. shake

Do I ever know the game's reputation, but maybe I should finally read some reviews to find out if it's a good game or a terrible game. I don't know anything about it, except its continual discount status on CSI and Tanga, etc.

Any comments?

I think I did worse than that... I originally bought when it was ~ $20 I think, more at $12.99 to price average... and more at $9.99... not knowing csi was then going to keep it at that price

fwiw compared to what other etailers are still asking for this game csi's price is indeed a hot, if not long running, deal

I chuckled too when I saw this - but the darned thing is, LDV is a fine game, If you don't have it, then for $10 get the darned thing.

But now you can get mb and that makes it all worthwhile. Maybe.

I wonder how much that ranking is affected by the low price at CSI.

from experience with grail games being reprinted the availability of affordable edition of a game seems to drag down the ratings/ranking... I think because those seeking out a grail game already know they will like it... once it's available to general masses it skews it down.

however this is not such a case... just a game that was already ranked high originally (if my memory serves, this is a 2006 release) available very cheaply from a single etailer.

historical stats I believe are available from the BGG XML API, there may even already be a tool someone has made available to display a graph of the data... would be interesting to see if any change in the trend line from the various CSI price drops

I bet it bumped it up for people actually trying the game and finding it not to be that bad.

Sole reason why I bought it b/c my order was at $92...it bumped me over. Still need to read the rules, though I wish someone would make a detail video on the rules, H2P, and review...


From what I gathered, seems like its a decent to good game but probably forgettable when it is done.

I have no evidence, I think it has to do with dV Giochi dumping Mayfair as a distributor/partner- large quantities of their games made under the partnership show up new in Chicagoland Salvation Armies (a pile of Lucca Cittas taller than me, etc), and as I understand it many other liquidators/charities across the country. Presumably retailers got offered these first, by the pallet.

Well dang, I really overpaid for it last year. Ugh.

As to someone's question about whether the game is good or not:
yes and no. I gave a pretty detailed note in my comments on the game itself. basically it is clever with the build your item strategy and how you place your workers vs others competing for the same builds and you can get into mini fights over resources and such. but the thing I can't stands the unknown endgame cards - you either win or lose almost completely on the luck of those draws. which is a shame, because it plays fast as well, which is nice. and for $10, yeah it's worth that easily.
