Escape From 100 Million BC board game $14.99 + shipping

+8 Deal Score

coolstuffinc, a fairly well known site in the board game and hobby community, has Escape From 100 BC on sale today for $14.99

link:
https://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/236221

full disclosure, I have never played this myself but on board game geek it rates a 7.32

this is $38.99 on Amazon, and I think regularly $39.99 on the coolstuffinc site

shipping is not included, I think it's about $5.99 depending on your location. I wish I had a more solid number, but out the door in guessing you will be at about $22 total

I don't post a lot of deals but this one seemed like a good deal for a good game if you have an interest. I think I'm picking a copy up for myself at this price.

Looks like a lot of parts. Has anyone played this before who could advise on the complexity? I've found a lot of popular board games out there which aren't mainstream tend to be overly complicated and it's more like a puzzle and monotonous turns rather than something fun.

grabbed a copy. i am on a BG binge right now, bought Gloomhaven and want to buy azul, puerto rico, etc as I base my purchases on BGG rankings. BUT i am now just letting go of bgg rankings as i don't think gloomhaven is #1, and cannot see any positive feedback from bgg's ranking system as it appear to be just a promotional standpoint than actual user based reviews

I'm on that binge too but agree you need to be careful.

That said, GLOOMHAVEN has been incredible thus far and I believe it's definitely a contender - I'm only about 12 hours in but still fell pretty strongly it's' at least one of the best.

Azul being delivered today, cannot wait despite having to pay $65 shipped since it's sold out (still).

Anyhow, might give this a shot.

The holidays always stir up my board game/card game appetite as well. I start looking for gifts for others and end up with tons of "oh I want that..." On my list as well.

That's why I was on coolstuffinc and saw this. They have a special item each day but usually they are close to Amazon once you add in shipping, but this one seemed to be drastically less expensive.

I'm very jealous of the Azul owners. It's on my wish list too but a bit too much $ for me. Plus pretty the comments before I over did the gifts for myself the last month anyway.

Back to this deal. I think it is a bit more on the more complex than less based on the very quick reviews I read today. Some said it was a pretty hearty rule book. But again I have never played so not really sure.

I hope it's great. I think I'm pulling the trigger as well on this one.

Such an addicting hobby

Puerto Rico is one of my favorite games. Grab the mobile app and try it out before you buy the physical game.
