I got my copy of Ticket to Ride: Heart of Africa from Amazon in February of this year:
However... I'd waited for quite some time for a copy at a "normal" price (the MSRP is $29.99) and Amazon just happened to get a few themselves for less than MSRP (they'd had some at MSRP off and on for some time but I wouldn't go that high). I paid $21.67 for that copy (tax and shipping included). It's now going for $50+ from MP vendors.
According to camelcamelcamel, July this year was the last time Amazon had copies.
Gamenerdz has it listed but OOS (for a very long time). You can set up a "notify me when it's in stock" with them:
Board Games, MTG, Magic: the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Role Playing Games, Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer Miniatures, Gamesworkshop and much more.www.gamenerdz.com
Also at Miniature Market (again OOS for a very long time):
Shop Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 3 - The Heart of Africa at Miniature Market. Check out our huge collection of hot Board Games and receive Free Shipping at $99 to the continental U.S.www.miniaturemarket.com
I watched both for a copy until I snagged that one from Amazon (I also picked up TTR:Asia - another hard to find title - around that same time for a normal price from gamenerdz).
Supposedly it's still in print, currently in Asmodee's catalog, but copies at the normal price ($20-$25) rarely come up.
FWIW I prefer Gamenerdz to Miniature Market because their prices are usually a bit lower and their free shipping minimum is $75 vs. $100 at MM. Outside that I like both stores equally as well and have ordered from both.
Hello Bob, I thought I would follow up with you since you were so helpful. I wasn’t able to find it at any of the places mentioned, but yesterday it showed back up on Amazon from a couple of sellers and Amazon themselves. I was able to order a copy directly from Amazon for $48.59. That’s obviously higher than what you paid, but they also listed the MSRP higher. I’m just glad I was able to get it at all and at a somewhat reasonable price (not $80-$100). It’ll bring a smile to one of our kids on Christmas morning.
