Board gamers are a special breed. They don't review on Amazon and I would never trust Amazon to point me in a board games direction. Everybody uses boardgamegeek.com

I was tempted too, but after seeing the Sit down and Shut Up review where it seemed like at least a few hours + to even begin to decipher the rules I think I'm passing as well.

To be clear - it seems like an amazing price for the components and content, for me it is just a bit more of an investment (time and studying, not $) in a game than I want to make.

Good deal, but folks should check a few reviews and videos perhaps to make sure they know what they are getting into

This is an amazing price and practically half off online game store prices, and and even bigger discount off retail. Just keep in mind it was considered terribly disappointing given the theme and pedigree of the designer and game company. People really were expecting a lot more and walked away sad. Sales of this game were surely bad due to the poor reviews and it looks like prices are catching up.

The rulebook left a lot to be desired. I cancelled my preorder after reading a bunch of complaints at BGG. No regrets. Still not picking it up at this price either. Maybe at $15.

Thumbs up for a boardgame deal, but skipping cause the reviews are really disappointing.

Can someone tell me how this has 1000+ reviews on some websites and only 6 on amazon?

I not a board gamer, but that math just seems odd to me.

How much time do you have to learn how the internet, Amazon and e-commerce works?

There was a thread about this on BGG a few weeks ago. Someone stated a bunch of reviews on Amazon were purged, if I recall correctly the were all unverified purchases. Possibly some sellers complained. I have no idea if it is true but is sounds plausible enough. Most people tent to shop at local shops or some reputable online shops and only go to amazon if it is a really good deal so most reviews would be unverified.
