[Amazon Canada] Board Game: Santorini $39.90

I think this is a great price considering it's sold out on all the major online board game stores. They also sell it in the $45-50 range where this is sold and shipped from amazon for $39.90.

Edit: changing category - weird that there isn't a board game category

Great game! Got this when it first came out and have noticed stock to be scarce for the past few months in most stores.

Easy to learn and best with two players for some strategic gameplay.

I believe this is the cheaper version of Santorini.
The Target one which is done by Spinmaster.

I think the difference is minimal though.

Sweeeett!! Thanks. I've been waiting for this for a while. Following threads that show it was in stock at Target in the US but have not seen in at any canadian boardgame distributor yet.

Decent price but it has been cheaper not too long ago. I ordered mine on Oct 6 from Chapters/Indigo when they had the "Spend $40 take 20% off toys/games" promo, ended up being $31.96. Plus used my discounted gift cards to purchase. OP is correct, stock is low on the interweb

My local group for buying and selling board games noted that you could buy these new Spin Master versions of the game at MasterMind Toys. I haven't verified this but you might want to check there.

Thanks OP. Not sure how much of a good deal it is since its regular price but been on a board game binge.

Also would highly recommend Lost Cities GF and I love this game.

Yes, this is definitely the re-print version of the original, and is being sold at a cheaper price than the original print run.

But this $39 price is the "new price" for the re-print. There are differences between the two. I can't speak to the quality of the components difference, but the new version is missing the "water base" that the original had. Again, not a big deal considering the new price is about $20 cheaper than the original, but just a note that this isn't really a sale price. It's the new standard price for this print version of the game by Spinmaster.

Again to clarify.

The boardgame stores were selling the Roxley copy which is better in quality for $45-50.
The one here is not that edition.
This one is the Spinmaster edition which is not as good in quality.

It has been recently been selling at Target for $10-20USD (price mistake i think).

It's a very good game and worth purchasing imo.

Apparently the card quality is cheaper too.
But on the plus side, the miniatures are better than the original.
