    I saw this while browsing Amazon to use up some of my Christmas gift cards. Does seem a tad bit steep, even if it is worth every cent.

    I bought Civ III: Complete at a paltry US$15.00... how can they charge you $95 for just [c3c]?

    Not untypical for Amazon to have the same item costing very different prices.

    Once I was on the lookout for an Age of Wonders game. I believe I saw a copy of even $300 on Amazon, next to cheaper copies. But I got it from a German retailer on Ebay for 5 euro. That was a German copy of the game, but that just means the box art is in German; the game still installs in English if you choose so.

    Comparing prices is easy enough on the internet and you should certainly do that.

    I particularly like the fact that, in the same picture, I can see Complete for $15.98. :lol:

    Best place to buy games is either walmart, or game tap.

    Keep in mind, it's not Amazon, per se, but the people who are using to to sell their wares.

    OK. I'll switch my cruise missile's target coordinates to the seller's IP instead of Amazon headquarters. :sarcasm:

    Nah, I don't think cruise missiles travel enough tiles. I'd recommend an ICBM; infinite bombard range means you'd be sure to get them.

    I'd click accept if it read "Alliance against Evil Seller's IP" instead of "Alliance against Amazon". :p
