I picked this up when it as on sale. The Amiibo's alone are worth cost of entry. Good for a couple go-rounds with friends.

Watch a YouTube video before you jump on this garbage.

It’s not even worth $5. It’s downright trash... I agree. How did they ever publish this?

Don’t waste your money. Trust us!!

I actually enjoy playing this with friends and their kids. If I had a Wii U I'd pick one up. Telling another friend to get a copy. Thanks :)

Agreed with the rest I'll likely never play it but it's worth $5 for the two amiibos. There are still two left at train yards in Ottawa. I just left

Presumably they'll at least provide some sort of random bonus for other games that can use amiibos. And they'll almost certainly work with Animal Crossing 3DS – which of course already includes the Desert Island Escape game from Amiibo Festival.

On that note, apparently the standalone 3DS NFC Reader (for older 3DS models) has become shockingly expensive.

I just picked up the last one from EB Rideau. I can't believe it was sitting there this whole week at $5! Maybe it is cursed and Digby will murder me in my sleep.

I didn't realize how scarce Amiibos were becoming either. I mean, the Switch is supposed to support Amiibos, isn't it? Now I wish I had picked some up when Wal-Mart was clearing them out for next to nothing.

These amiibos are crap. No one care-or wants them, and there are WAY too many of them.

So many stores have them for $3 and still can’t get rid of them. In 20 years these will still be space wasting crap, just like $5 NES titles are. Saying “it’s worth it for the amiibos” is simply not true.

Prices on eBay or Kijiji still seem to be kind of high.

Which stores? I thought they might turn up in the local dollar stores alongside the old Disney Infinity, Yo-Kai Watch, and Skylanders merch, but they don't seem to have fallen that far yet.
