The seller put the logo away.

Hmmm...that is very interesting. I see he is in Singapore. Maybe he has connections with the eastern printing factories, although I admit I do not know where HiG does their printing.

Sorry about that post - I should have read through the rest of the thread first.  ???

So it did, which is a lot better than 109.50.  Though the shipping might end up being a lot if the buyer lives far away from Germany.

Makes me happy I already have Die Katharer!

I feel a little bad because icydarkstary has apologized and I think it is within his right to sell his expansions at the price his will, and is a personal decision to purchase or not.
This forum is to promote the game and I think that reading some post and looking for at ebay, BGG, etc you can have the discretion to know when something is expensive.  :blue-meeple:

Man I would definitely bid but I know it will go waaay out of my price range before long... I also noticed corn circles has gone down in price. (If I had heaps more money and if HiG hadn't mentioned the eventual possibility of a re-release I would consider it).

Reading this thread has given me a better understanding of why Tobias is so angry. Although it may be completely within a person's right to sell things at ridiculous prices to people who are willing to pay it, I don't think it is right. I especially have a problem with people who buy things so that they can sell them right away for even more money. Nothing has been done to increase the value of the item. I only buy things that I want to keep for myself, and if some day I don't want it anymore, I don't think it is fair to get more money back than what I paid for it because I got value out of the item.

I'm not a big fan of auctions either. I prefer people to tell me how much they want, and if I find the price agreeable, we'll exchange my money for your product. I don't like agreeing to buy something for a certain price, and then somebody with more money comes along and takes it away.

This "Buy it Now" item at ebay is amazing. "Only" 535.20$ for Big Box 3

I totally agree with this sentiment. It stops others from getting a fair shot at building up a collection, which no true fan would do in my opinion. I hope that regular CarcCentral folk are better than that.

Die Windrosen was making a lot on eBay a month or two ago, but I wouldn't have dreamt of selling the copy that I got through this forum. The first thing I did when I got it was tear off the plastic unpunch the tiles and play with them!

That Big Box auction, wth!?  And why is it 500 bucks plus in the By It Now, but in the description it says:

$267.60 $360.95

Is the seller away and he didn't want to take the auction down so he made it unbuyable?  I've seen that before, $10 items for a thousand with an "I'm away" message in the description.

The "Buy It Now" price ($535.20) is exactly twice the price in the description ($267.60) and the seller had two copies available. I guess he just messed up his maths a bit! Worked out well for him though, he's already sold one copy.

Why would anyone pay this for Big Box 3? Especially when you can buy al of the constituent parts individually for much less!

Ah, so that's it.  You're right, still way too much.  If somebody paid that much they deserve to lose their money.
