For those who haven't been following it, the price of Super Dungeon Explore V2 has been steadily declining on Amazon. It dropped to £35 a couple of weeks ago but has since dropped to the silly price of £22.04 - <a data-source="forums" data-type="Amazon UK - Super Dungeon Explore V2 Forgotten King Soda Pop Miniatures: Amazon.co.uk: Toys & Games" href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00TVC8P6E/thedvdforums-21" class="affiliatelink">Super Dungeon Explore V2 Forgotten King Soda Pop Miniatures</a>

This is a game that used to retail at around £70! It gets very good reviews. I've never tried a dungeon crawler and I'm not 100% sure they're for me, but at this price for a luxury set it seems crazy not to give it a go.

Rumours seem to be around due to a large company offloading a ton of stock due to legal / finanical troubles and more items could be on the way.

I didn't bite when it was around £35 but thought at £22 it was worth a go, even if we only try it out a couple of times.

One of the things I enjoy about board games is I think they'll hold their value. Not so much in terms of resale, but things like DVDs and computer games are generally replaced by more technically advanced versions, whereas in 5 - 10 years time a board game will still be a board game - No one will go "Urgh, the graphics on this card look awful".

(I'm a big fan of retro gaming but hopefully you take my point!).

November! It'll be free by then ;) Cool present, I bet he'll love it.

Mine arrived today! Was tempted to have a good look inside lunch, but best wait until I get home.

Am I remembering correctly that KoNY is the one to get over King of Tokyo?
