Gloomhaven Board Game Available to Backorder on Amazon $136.48

The option to buy directly from Amazon is now available in Other Sellers, which likely means that the next printing is coming in stock shortly. This sells out fast and has only been available from resellers for the last 2-3 months. Gloomhaven is the #1 rated game on Board Game Geek [boardgamegeek.com] and each printing has sold out rather quickly, so I had been looking for an opportunity to get this for close to MSRP.

While this isn't an amazing price, this IS an amazing game. I don't typically pay more than half MSRP for board games, but I was happy to have gotten this for $125 several months ago. There is SOO much in this box. It's basically a classic computer RPG, like Neverwinter Nights, in board game format. IF you have had your eye on this, you will see it typically goes for about $200 on the secondary market if you can even find it. If you're patient you might be able to find it cheaper next year.

You are correct on everything you said. But that price is still crazy, due to high demand as it's the highest rated board game ever, it seems. It should still be <$100, but if you NEED it now, this has been the best price I've seen it. I'm personally going to wait it out Smilie

Have to agree, it's a different game than what else is out there. I got mine in the KS, and it's a huge value for the amount of stuff in the box.

It's basically a combination of RPG and a bit of tactical mini gaming in the dungeon scenarios. There are random road and city encounters. Opportunities to buy weapons and upgrades. And lots of classes to play over time. It's also challenging, do don't be afraid to start on the easy difficulty, especially when you start out.

If you love RPGs and board games, this is a great pick.

Have to disagree a bit. I love good deals. But MSRP is actually pretty fair for what's in the box. 1000+ cards, lots of minis and standees, a whole bunch of dungeon tiles, etc. You'll easily get your money's worth from this game over the campaign.

Been waiting for this to drop in price, but the demand seems to be outpacing the supply, so it's holding steady above my price point. Thumbs up regardless.

Saw this post on BGG forums on when the next printing might happen:
Quote :
So we're printing a lot more copies. It may fulfill the current demand. It may not, but it is what I could afford to print and it is a lot. And if anyone is familiar with how the second printing went down, you know that producing a lot of copies takes a lot of time. This isn't your standard board game. It takes the factory a significant amount of time to physically construct every game box.

Right now, I estimate they are somewhere around 1/3 of the way through assembling all of the copies. The first few batches are already well on their way to my distribution broker, but they want to wait for the entire printing to come in before sending anything out to distributors, because that is the most efficient and fair way to do it.

So it really comes down to how much longer it is going to take to assemble the rest of the boxes. I estimate it will take another month (which I will emphasize is just an estimate). From there, it is another month to get to the distribution warehouse, and then it could be in stores around two weeks after that.

So the beginning of July. But it really is just an estimate.

Unfortunately, this game is perfectly designed for a single player. All of the enemies are controlled by a pretty cool AI system. So your money is still not safe!

Wait... AI? this is a board game yes? where is the AI come from?
Not trolling, I am kinda considering this since BGG is really good. but... most of my friends are not much into hard/long board games. they like lighter and easier ones.
