Hello, I hope you are doing well.

Amazon.com has Spirit Island Board Game [amazon.com] on sale for $63.87 with free shipping. Its expansion, Branch & Claw [amazon.com], is on sale for $29.95.

Note: This item is temporarily out of stock, but you can place an order and it will ship when stock is available.

Author's Notes
  • Please note that one major reason that this is a deal is because this product is rarely in stock anywhere online, where people sometimes pay over $100 for it. Some people travel miles and miles to specialty game shops to buy this when it is in limited stock.
  • This isn't a board game for beginners. It has a complexity rating of 3.95 out of 5 on BoardGameGeek.com [boardgamegeek.com], which means it'll take some time to learn the game. At Board Game Geek, it has an average rating of 8.5 out of 10.
  • I'm posting this deal in Slickdeals first and will post it to Board Game Geek soon.
  • I understand this deal isn't for the general public, but figured I'll post it and take up a few bytes of Slickdeals's servers in the chance it'll help a couple people.

Thanks for posting this. Looks like my sort of game.

How available is the expansion? I'm buying this to try, I expect to like it. In which case I will want the expansion.

But if I don't like the game, I would prefer to not need to also resell the expansion, not to mention that $30 is a quite noticeable amount of money for me.

The expansion goes in and out of stock, but it isn't that hard to get. I suggest holding off on buying it and just buying the core game for now.

Just to mention this again, this game is very complex and complicated. If you are not familiar with a lot of board games, I do not recommend it.

+1 for board game deal. How does it play solo? Unfortunately, don't have a group that is up for playing games at this complexity. Trying to slowly get the wife there.

There is a poll on every boardgame geek that gives some good information on playability with various numbers of players. In this case, it says that one player works well, but the game seems to be best with three.

I've played it solo over 10 times. I really like it, though when you work up to it playing more characters can be interesting (don't do this for several plays). In my top 10, as a heavy gamer this is excellent and burns the brain.

Amazing co-op game! Haven't had this much fun since Pandemic Legacy. As Tofu Vic pointed out, it's definitely for designer board game veterans.

Yeah, I tried to make that as clear as possible. I don't want people who are only familiar with Monopoly and Sorry! to jump straight into this game.

On that note, I'm surprised this thread has a +19 right now. When I last checked it yesterday, it was at -4. Before posting this thread, my estimation was that it would be between -3 and +3, so this thread turned out to be more positive than I expected.
