So it looks like my choices today are to order the downloadable version with the 30% off sale for $28, or to go to Amazon and get the version with manual for $56 and free two day shipping, but no sale discount. Sadly it seems the shipping cost from here is still $20 for the manual, which I don't understand, since I sell heavy wargames all the time through USPS using flat rate priority for a lot less than that.
Given that the manual will effectively double the price of the game, the question is, is the paper manual worth it? Do you consult it often during play? Is it going to be rendered obsolete by patches and such?
Curious for the opinions of people who bought the paper manual. I don't need more "stuff" that just sits on the shelf for display purposes, I am trying to get rid of as much of that as possible. Is the paper manual something you use a lot?
I haven't seen games with good paper manuals since Baldur's Gate II, and back then I used the manual a lot to look stuff up during the game.
Hi chuftka, first if you order the game from Amazon they might offer you their credit card and if you accept they will give you a gift certificate for $50 US which can be used against their charge for the game, which is what I did so the game will cost you about $5.99 US, with no delivery charge which is what I paid for the book and the disc which is inside of the book.
As far as the manuel goes it is very well done, and looks very professional, and I enoyed reading it then read some PDF on the computer.
Read the post 20.00 shipping? Posted started by Johnpham dated sept 17th on page 7 on the posts.
Opps forgot one thing if you use their credit card to get the $50 fifty certificate make sure you leave the prime box unchecked or you will get an annual $104.95 dollar charge like I did for being a prime customer, I talked to them and they took off the charge.
