$23 shipping... NO DEAL =)
Just FYI this game has nothing to do with RISK. It’s not even close. Defenders cant roll die to defend. You can’t play cards to “risk”. There’s no conquering of territories. You must move all troops from one area to another - can’t leave any behind. It’s basically a terrific Star Wars game with nothing to do with Risk. Ha!

I disagree, there ARE some RISK elements - but not a lot. There is a bonus for clearing a Sector, there are Cards you can play each turn with varying effects/benefits, and its important to choose where to focus your forces (as there are 3 basic play areas). And you still move troops from one sector to another, deploy more troops in sectors you control, and fight based on Troop strength via Dice
It's available at other large resellers online for $29 atm
$30 on Amazon and MM, so commit at $28. (:
Got this back on Dec28th when it was down at $23, and its a great purchase at that price. $30 is probably also OK the game itself, I played with a friend, it was VERY fun, and every single battle came down to the wire! Luke and Vader went the distance, my Troopers held the ShieldGen JUST long enough, and at the very end, as if the Force itself was guiding it all, one band of 2 Xwings survived and my Death Star gunners couldn't hit them, allowing the Rebels to blow it up and win the game really cool game with some sweet minis - the ONLY downside is that my Star Destroyer mini came a bit limp/bent at the tip, but the game itself is packaged/boxed/secured beautifully, and it makes a GREAT gift for any Star Wars fan :) Afterwards, I thought about the RISK-elements of it, and there really are a good amount, even though they are a bit altered. You can still play cards to deploy/gain/move/attack with troops, and certain others give instant boosts, as does clearing out all enemies in an area like in RISK. Very cool game, definitely recommend it! :)
why is it almost a month until shipping?
This site could be so cool, but they keep doing things like this. They'll sell an item like this for $49.99 and a few months later they resell it for half the price. Should I just not buy things until they are dirt cheap? Seems the be the case here. Guess you should all wait until this drops to $11.99 at this rate.
I just received my package today and it looked beat to hell. The package was open and smashed. I pulled out the game and 3 of the corners have damage and 2 of those are smashed inward and slightly ripped. A real shame seeing as this is the Black series and half of the appeal is the aesthetic s of the box and contents. Not happy.

I'm in the sane boat. My item came unprotected with some heavy corner damage.

I wish I were in the sane boat...
Amazon is Evil. Wait for the product and get it from the little guy :)
Today 9/26 - it is $23 shipped to US on Massdrop, $27 on Amazon with prime. I'll probably be waiting a while for this, but its not urgent so I just did the Massdrop.
I have the regular version. Is this nice enough to justify picking up an essentially duplicate game?

Probably only if you are a big starwars fan
The game doesn't even ship to where I am with Amazon, so this was the only option for me getting hold of the game at a reasonable price.
Shipping is 31.75. Total price 50.24. So where do I save again?
Definitely the most played 2-player board game in our house. The parts are great quality compared to the regular version. One addition I would suggest, if you buy it, would be this printable player guide (cheat sheets): https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/127814/player-guides-star-wars-risk-black-edition (you might have to register to get this file. Make sure you format the printer so it fits to page)
cheaper on amazon with 2 day shipping...sorry folks not for me...looked good until shipping
Same here. Shipping kills this drop. 1.25 more and you have it in 2 days, and even adding taxes it is worth it IMHO.
Let's use real numbers! :) Amazon current price $33.89, Price on Massdrop $18.49 + $8.25 domestic shipping = $26.74 This makes is $7.15 cheaper than Amazon, which I consider substantial.

Not sure where you got that #, but it is $28 shipped on Amazon right now. Hence the $1.25 difference to get it now instead of waiting for the drop. https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Black-Risk-Game/dp/B00SDJGDI8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494253688&sr=8-1&keywords=star+wars+risk+black+edition

Amazon didn't have it in stock under its own name when I made this post. When they run out, the price goes up considerably. At the time I checked, the price was $33.89. In reality, its a $49.99 msrp, so its a good deal at either venue.
Not a bad deal, but not that great either.
Shipping and exchange rate makes it cheaper (and quicker!) on Amazon.ca for Canadians.
Man, looked like a great price. Until shipping was factored in. For $1.25 more I can get it in 2 days from Amazon.
