If i read it correctly, the price is in CHF, so it will be around £40, or around €45 for the box. I'd say a very good price for the game with 11 expansions!
I'm gonna have to keep it on my watchlist im afraid...

I won't deny it, gonna go buy it. But this big box is a pure rip off.

11 "expansions" including The River and The Abbot as such. Aside from two large expansions the rest are mini expansions.
  The price here in Sweden will be as much or more as buying everything separate.

This is exciting news. Hopefully this means that it will be released by Christmas in the USA. Now the only main expansions with no ZMAN announcement are 6,8, and 9 as 7 is not set to be reprinted as of now.

Really? I thought the price was gonna be alright, or will the price in Sweden be much higher? Normally the base game (€20), and 2 big expansions (€13 each) is about as much as the big box already, so if the price shown will be true, it will be a good price i recon. I don't know the prices in Sweden of course, but it would surprise me if everything together would be cheaper to buy separately.

20 Euro Base game incl River and Abbot
10 Euro each big expansion
25 Euro Minis complete
Totaling 55 Euro

Big box cost 65-85 Euro.

These prices are based on Big Box 3 and following releases.

Hang on, the Big Box contains 2 large expansions:

20 + 10 + 10 + 25  = 65 Euros.

Good luck finding the minis for 25Euros - the new edition are not in print and only announced in the Big Box.
Given this is a reprint of BigBox 4 I think that's a better comparison.

Ah, forgot to count it twice.

As mentioned in another thread, I can acquire 3000 complete sets of minis for roughly 25 Euro each, but they are not in English.

A mega game with just the minis and no base game?? That would be mentally exhausting I think.
