I gave in to getting Carcassonne 2.0....
« on: November 10, 2016, 09:20:34 PM »
Carc 2.0. is being sold for only $9.95 with free shipping on Amazon right now. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00NX627HW/ref=sr_1_1_olp?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1478841088&sr=1-1&keywords=carcassonne&condition=new
I gave in. It was too good of a deal.

Same here. I just can't say no to a sub-10-buck-deal. There are three store just launched on Amazon and they all sell Carc 2.0 at $9.95 with free shipping. I chose the store that's closest to me. Thank you Ry4Christ!

Beware this might (likely) be a scam! I don't know this for sure but I recently came across a post on BGG, Board game geek. That announced a similar deal that turned out to be fraudulent.

I hope this isn't the case in this instance but take a look here for reference:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1630270/deadscam-amazon-carcassonne-995-amazon-3rd-party-f/page/2

The amazon main page shows Carc. 2 at $21.25.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NX627HW/sr=1-1/qid=1478841088/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid=1478841088&sr=1-1

Read through the thread, if it is a bad deal, Amazon should give full credit, but why they can't control what appears to be a repeated issue is a concern.

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

The seller from NV is no longer in the list... although I didn't order from this one.
Anyway, Amazon is fully responsible if anything goes wrong. We'll see.

Scammers are still everywhere on Amazon, unfortunately. My partner and I did our gift registry on Amazon back in 2011 and a lot of the registry was Disney DVDs. We received about 20 total (yeah, it was awesome) but of those, I'd say half were from cheaper "New" copies that vendors sold and we quickly found ways to determine if they were scam copies. Anything from misspellings and missing words on the packaging, to overly metalicized slip-covers, to straight-up strange images rather than the official ones. For many, we were able to get Amazon credit but for a few, we never got a replacement copy.

Thank you for the heads up everyone. Amazon indicates it has been shipped and is on its way. There is now one 100% positive rating for the account - I ordered from the Mississippi seller. I'm cautiously optimistic. I'll let you know what I find if/when it arrives in the next week and a half.

All right. The item never arrived. The seller left Amazon. Amazon gave me a full refund.

Yep, it never came for me either  :-\  It was still worth a try though, since I don't lose any money.
