The seller is Amazon.com services LLC, so I don't think so

I did some poking around... evidently, Amazon's supply has been tainted with counterfeits for at least a year; the review titled "Beware, very poor production quality" from Dec2018 is indicative of this.

Over at BGG, there's a thread [boardgamegeek.com] about it where somebody mentions an official communication with the publisher(?) how one of the easiest ways to identify a counterfeit copy is that the 'R' will be missing from the title on a few cards.

...I figure roll the dice, and file a counterfeit return if that's the case.

Alternatively, Target has it for $41.99 with a 25%-off Target Circle coupon, bringing it to the same price.

You may be less likely to get a counterfeit from them, and there is the ease of returning in store if you are concerned about the quality.

Out of curiosity, how does Amazon ever get to selling counterfeit items? Don't they source their stock from the manufacturer? I understand if it's FBA, how this could happen.

I believe the issue is how they mix their stock. I'm not sure if they still do it, but they would mix all stock of the same item together, regardless of who it's sold by. So whether you're buying an item from Amazon themselves or that same item that is only "shipped by Amazon", the item comes from the same bin. This resulted in fakes getting mixed in with real vetted product and even "sold by Amazon" items winding up counterfeit.

I have been worried about getting a counterfeit but pulled the trigger figuring it would be easy to return from amazon. Had a price alert set up under 40 but it didn't trigger with the coupon so thanks for sharing, OP. This game is super fun - especially with the expansions! Highly recommended!

I ordered from Amazon around Christmas-time and received a perfectly legit version.

I just received mine that I ordered over the weekend. Ripped a blank card, as suggested by its creator, to verify authenticity and it did indeed have the black core. Legit copy, shipped from Amazon services.

As for the game, I highly recommend it for those board gamers who love solid strategy. This game has immense replay ability (this is my 4th purchase of the game to replace items that have gone through wear and tear). The expansions add a lot more moving parts, helping add to the variability of each play.

There is also a solo mode in the game. Perfect for those practicing social distancing (which likely should include you who is reading this).

Thank you for posting this. I also ordered it after assessing the comments here and on BGG. I have a high confidence rate that I'll get a legit copy. I'll be sure to tear the blank card to check.

Me and my friends love this game. But the quality of the components could be *way* better.

Anyone here have experience with accessories that help organize the game components? Especially the individual resource boards.

Don't think I am seeing that coupon. Any chance you could provide more details on how you find the coupon? Many thanks

This is what I see, whether I'm logged in or not:

Maybe the coupon is targeted? (no pun intended)
