This is actually not a great price, it's essentially the regular price. Just looking at CCC, you can see that it usually sits at or around $45. There was just a spike in prices for a short while.

Here is the regular price at the main boardgame sites:
Miniature Market: $46.89
Coolstuff: $49.99
Cardhaus: $46.99
Game Nerdz: $44.97
Funagain Games: $52.50 but right now it's $45.50 for their holiday sale.

It is out of stock at several of these sites, and you do need to meet their free shipping threshold which varies per site. Game Nerdz actually has the lowest requirement at $75.

If you want to grab this game in time for the holidays, go for it. You're basically getting it at the regular price with free shipping. If you can wait, this game does go on sale. Miniature Market put it on sale earlier this year for $38.50 and Coolstuff had it on sale for around $36. Once everyone gets their stock refilled, I'm sure it will go on sale again at some point in the new year.

That is a great price on a great game. It retails for $75, I think.

I've played this game a bunch and it is always a good time.

For those familiar with the game, how long does it typically take to play with 2 or 4 players? Some of the Amazon reviews I read were conflicting - one said they played through two quick games in a morning, another said it takes at least a few hours for a single game. TIA!

You're looking at 2 hours per game, longer for your first few.

So it's technically possible to start at 8am, and thus play two games in the morning, but this isn't a short game.

This is absolutely a great game. As for time to play, I usually allot three hours for a three person game with the corporations (it absolutely depends on who your playing with).

Overall yes. It's been getting gradually cheaper on Amazon specifically, for what that's worth. (Not much really.) So this is near the cheapest it has been there. Though there was probably some better BoGo deal somewhere along the way that CCC can't account for.

Considering picking this up for my husband. He's really into board games and I heard that this can be solo'd. Thanks for the heads up!
