Got Amazon Prime? Get Scythe The Board Game For $87

Scythe is an excellent board game, it's just a shame that it retails for well over $100 locally. But not if you buy it today from Amazon Australia, where it's $87. Well, Amazon US actually, but we'll get to that.

As user "kpyam2000" over at OzBargain notes, if you hit up Scythe on Amazon Australia — making sure to select Amazon US as the supplier — the price comes to $86.75.

However, delivery is $42.70. Yuk.

Fortunately, if you have Amazon Prime (or take the 30-day trial), the postage goes to zero. If you don't have Prime, and already burned through the trial, you could always pay for a month (currently $5) and still come out ahead.

Scythe: The Kotaku Review

It's not every day you get to rampage through the 1920s countryside in control of a fleet of giant mechs. Scythe is a new board game from Stonemaier Games. If the art looks familiar, that's because the entire game is based on a universe imagined by artist Jakub Rozalski.

As an added bonus, if you'd like a six per cent discount (about $5, funnily enough), be sure to go via CashRewards.

    Does it work though? Sending from Amazon US?

    Whenever I try, it always seems like it's going to work, then in the final step it tells me I can't order from the US.

      Yes if you are on it will allow the item to ship from us. If you are in .com (the us site) then item won’t shop.

      I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but I could not get it to ship to my parcel locker for whatever reason. When I changed the shipping address to my home address it managed to work.

      You order from the .au site, but you make sure that the _seller_ is Amazon US. If you order from the .com site it lets you get to the end, reminds you that Gerry Harvey's a cunt and falls over.

      When using the US Amazon webpage, you'll run into this issue, however if you use and change the supplier on the item to Amazon US, there shouldn't be a problem.

    Or you could wait for the digital version, coming soon.
