$79 NZD shipped is the cheapest I have seen it, otherwise around $85, and I think when launched was just over $100.

I got a copy a few weeks back - arrived well packaged and intact (apparently bookdepository used to have a bad reputation for the quality of their packaging on larger items).

They often have a price difference between .com and .co.uk, with some specials applied at one site but not the other - luckily you can log in to either with a single registration.

The site is terrible to find games on, but they do carry all FFG games as well as others that have ISBN numbers. If they have a game you want, they're almost certain to have the best price*. It is their range that is limiting.

This geeklist maintains a nearly comprehensive list of games that they carry, so is well work subscribing to: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/71514/buying-board-games-a...

edit: *for us in NZ, at least!

second edit: Oh, and things will come in and out of stock fairly regularly, so worth adding things to your wishlist and subscribe to email notification. They used to send out 10% discount codes on items that didn't come back into stock after a certain time, but has been awhile since I've seen one.

Yeah used to be almost guaranteed to be delivered within 7 - 10 days. This year the window seems to have gotten bigger. Been most often 3 weeks.

Yeah recently it's been 3 weeks most of the time. The trademe message board people in the Book section had a thread whinging how long it took now (I think if you are getting it this cheaply then of course something like shipping time could be worse).

I would like to play this! But I don't think I'll buy a copy as I don't think I'd get it to the table enough.

Re: Hot deals Cheap descent 2nd edition
Mine only took 2 weeks to arrive. I'm impressed by the improved level of packaging, in the past all bookdepositoy did was wrap a sheet of cardboard around it.

Had a one off game last week and now I'm in the process of organising a regular campaign.

I've ordered the conversion kit from bookdepositoy now as well for more hero and monster options. Now to find some proxy figures...

I also picked up X-Wing core set from there for $45nzd the other day.
