I thought I'd already ordered enough, and then they add Splendor :help:

We don't know the price yet? The price only drops when the deal goes live.

You need to check Amazon.de for the lightning deal at 4:45.

Postage is about 6euros so factor this in when we find out the.de price versus the UK price which had tended around the £22-24 Mark at Amazon Uk.

I was thinking of buying it anyway, so even if it's just a few quid dropped I'll probably get. There's no text on the game pieces and I believe the rules are already multilingual.

Only down to 19.46 EUR, it's not much of a saving (if anything) so I'm going to release the one I have in my basket.

Splendor, 19.40 EUR in the Amazon.de lightning deal, plus shipping...

Can get it here in the UK for less than £20 delivered, so not really worth it.

Haven't seen it quite that cheap here, so would be interested if you know of anywhere. Looks like it was ~£21.50 recently on amazon.co.uk though.

I'm a bit disappointed too! Finally a game I'm interested in (that I was able to wait and pounce on) and it's not even a bargain.

http://www.shop4world.com/strategy-card-games/splendor-multilingual-version

£17.94 plus £1.94 delivery...Total £19.88

However (and I don't know what difference this makes, but) it says it's the MultiLingual version...

Cheers,
Kevin

Is there a "Board Game Anonymous" group to support habitual board game buyers whose partners just don't understand? If there isn't do we need to start one?:D

To be fair isn't the forum enabling the problem more than helping?
