So I have been looking online to try and find a site that has this expansion for sell and with no luck I can't find anything. I found it on amazon.com for 60$ for some reason, and even ebay doesn't have anything for it.So does anyone know of where I can buy this in the USA?

The fishermen are part of Traders & Barbarians.

True, there is also a standalone release of it. I think I have it somewhere still.

Mayfair effectively stopped producing those though when Traders and Barbarians came out. With that said, the version with T&B is nice because it also includes a lake to replace the desert hex. I personally bought Fishermen and a few other small modules before T&B came out, so the big expansion wasn't worth it to me because I already had half of it by then.

A VERY good question... and I don't know why things like these sometimes go for a fortune on Amazon. Does anybody really spend $60 for ONE piece of cardboard??? But I digress...

The poster above gives you the best advice, get Traders and Barbarians if you must have it. And you get the other goodies as well.

I haven't played all the scenarios offered in T & B but I sure like the Fishermen.

And if that's all you want, I think you can play that scenario without the cool bits. If you have any 5-6 player extensions with extra numbers you can use those and place them in the sea hex where you want it to apply. Just remember that only the three "corners" (for lack of a better word) are where fishing can be done.

The only other issue is to keep track of how much fish you "get" and you can easily improvise something to stand for the 1, 2 or 3 fish you get.

Oh, and don't forget the most important part. We always have to pass the rule sheet around to remember how to spend them!!

Enjoy!

Oh, one more thing. About the "lake" mentioned above. Do you have Seafarers by any chance? Simply use a water tile. We always add "lakes" for variety of landscape! Or simply turn another land tile over, which in the 4th edition, is blue on the back.

Wow. Some people really do have too much money, I guess.

(NB: NOT a political statement Don't get me wrong... )

But I guess the market is the market! Lucky the guy who sold it!!

I downloaded the images and made my own until T&B came out. whistle

Now I never use Fishermen unless playing 2 player.
