$25 for Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar .. ~4.99 less than the cool stuff deal a little bit ago.

MSRP: $59.95

CSI is currently charging $44.99.

Seems like a good deal.

Just finished posting this myself only to see you beat me to it.


Fantastic deal. 127 in stock as of 1am Mountain time.

After applying my MM points, the price of the game was below $20. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Yup. $9.78 for me. I paid $5 on CSI and that was with a second game in my order

So, basically, it's the same deal that CSI had. This one looks to be $5 cheaper, but $5 extra for shipping.

Good, though, for anyone who missed the CSI deal. Plus those who are sitting on bonus points can knock that down a bit.

Yea, the fact that it's not free shipping means it was $11 extra for me, and so it's really $36. Amazon is $44, so it's really $8 off in my eyes. Great deal, but is it fun?

I'm pretty sick of Euros for the most part, and I have plenty of worker placement games, but after playing this a couple of times I still bought it during CSI's $30 deal last week. It's fun. I'm not sure how much I will be playing it in the next year or two, but it's better than most other games you can get for $36.

Yes. Yes it is.
I'm a fan of worker placement games and this one's innovative take on it with the spinning gears really is interesting. I'm sorely tempted to hop on this.

I may have to bite on this. They've sold 64 copies in the last 2+ hours, and I haven't heard many negatives on the game.

ETA: It looks like this may sell out, whereas the CSI deal didn't come close. Is it the extra $5, or are there more MM shoppers than CSI? I always thought CSI was the de facto place for BGG'ers.

It's a great game! The only negative I know of was that the first printing had some tearing and ripping issues due to a fold in the game board. The CSI deal was for the revised printing which comes with the board in six pieces instead of four, which appears to resolve that issue. (It also has yellow wood cubes for gold instead of the dull gold wood cubes which were sometimes hard to distinguish from the brown cubes). I assume that the MM would also be the new printing.

Wow! I got into work this morning at 7:30 Eastern and they had 99 left. So in a little less than 3 hours they sold close to 100 copies of this game. Incredible.

Like I said in a PP, though, CSI ran pretty much the same deal (albeit $5 more), and they didn't come close to selling out. Given the fact that the $5 became a wash due to MM's shipping costs, I found it very surprising this sold out this fast.

I don't personally shop at CSI because I have a military APO address and their $100 free shipping doesn't apply. So I went with MM because they have the customer point system. I've been saving up and I think this customer reward system is what caused MM to sell out fast. YMMV.

It sold out because Mm doesn't limit it one to an order. One person could have bought 20 or more copies for reselling on eBay or amazon.
