Gingerbread Man Available at Cundco (Limited Stock)
« on: May 13, 2021, 07:37:14 AM »
Limited stock of The Gingerbread Man is available again at Cundco.

It seems they really are cleaning out all of the corners to get ready for the 20th Anniversary!

Why do you want HiG to run out of stock? >:D

As I commented on another thread, the LebD tile could be ordered as a spare tile... just in case you cannot live with the expansion misprinted version with 2 LebC tiles...

And now they have limited it to 2 per customer.

Do note this is the misprint version, with 2 identical tiles in it. Doesn't make a difference in gameplay, bit still good to know for people

He did not say that it was the wrong version. Even if it is the wrong version, I think it's okay. Because repeated sections are also good sections.

Here you can see the difference between the misprinted version vs. correct one, just in case.


Misprinted (version on sale)
     
Correct version

The missing tile (LebD) could be ordered as a spare part from HiG some time ago. I did it back in the day...  ;D
 
No big deal regarding playability, but OCD can be very persuasive...

Thank you for the comparison! Wishing myself and everyone else luck in getting the LebD tile via spare parts.

The sooner they run out the sooner we can sell ours at a premium again (Totally kidding ;D)! Just want to spread the love. I know of a few people have been trying to track it down. I ordered two myself to tuck away. You never know when the kids might spill their hot chocolate and need a replacement tile!

They specifically mention that the tile is duplicated on the product page. Does that mean they won’t replace it now via the parts replacement service?

This is definitely not a joke. It is normal to sell at a higher price.
Even if he brushes the new version of Gingerbread Man on the new version.
As long as there is no stock of the old version of Gingerbread Man Promo, the price will continue to rise.

According to the speculation that the current order number 62928-62997, it is estimated that 138 copies of Gingerbread Man have been sold.

I initially planned to stay indifferent to this (posssibly last) reappearance of the Gingerbread Man in a same way as the discount of winter edition Crop Circles some months back, followed by their dissapearance from the eshop, did not quite excite me (I generally don´t like Crop Circles, I must confess). We so far do not own a winter edition of the base game so it seemed odd to stock with winter minis.
But a random look on the screen over my shoulder (bad habit, indeed!) of my younger son, followed by a frantic plea to buy this great-looking Gingerbread Man immediatelly somehow moved me to really do so and I secured one copy, resisting the openly expressed greed of my son who in the honesty of his seven years phantasized about a possible profit made by buying and reselling more copies - what the hell do they teach these kids at school? :-)
I also ordered right on the missing LebD tile as a spare part (it would internally bother me to know that there is one missing tile out there... this is a sign of completionism, right?).
I am happy today as the Gingerbread Man is available no more and I know deep in my heart that not having one would again internally disturb me. The consequence: I now stand in a queue of those wanting to get the winter edition of a base game :-D

Well... I got all the minis available for Spin-offs on Cundco.de before getting the Spin-offs themselves...

This is a curse!  >:D

It depends if they have it for replacement. Some tiles are sold out like river ii junction and also others
