Fake but cheap, if you can wait for it to arrive from China it's about £7 usually. Weirdly the thing that gives the copies away is the instructions, they seem oddly low quality when compaerd to an original.
Don’t support the counterfeiters.

So, don't support "The Oatmeal" for all his hard work?

id question why the chinese can knock out the oatmeals hard work so cheap, and then appreciate why piracy exists. I dont support it, but i understand why its done.

Because all they have to do is press print, no actual r&d is required when you're counterfeiting.

I guess it's no different to pirating music and films, each to their own.

It is slightly different. Pirating music and film requires no real cost in regards to materials etc (unless you are selling cd's and films down the pub), where this sort of piracy does require actual costs in materials, printing, labour etc. The difference is that they are still making a profit at £9.99 or whatever the pirates are charging, where the oatmeal will be absolutely raking it in (assuming this game is as popular as it once was).
Got the NSFW version last Xmas. Whiled away many long night shifts at work with it.

Also check out Bears Vs Babies - a little more to grasp, but good fun once you've got the hang of it.

So piracy is fine if the pirate sells it for less than the original?

Hard work? The game is essentially russian roulette. The Chinese copy I received feels very high quality for a pack of cards. How much more quality can playing cards get to justify £20?

If only you'd come up with it, and drawn the pictures, you'd be minted! If people weren't willing to pay £20 it'd come down in price, but they are so it won't apart from when Amazon sell it for £15 like here.

Most of us could easily be replaced at work by someone who can do the job for cheaper, perhaps we should change employment law to let that happen? Although it wouldn't surprise me if that was on the cards next year!

I voted cold because I think it's too much to spend on s set of cards. I play the crap or of the app and bought all the dlc. But it was reasonably priced.

This isn't. It's been sat in my watch list for three years. It's a very old game now.

If people overcharge for products, and the products are not that hard to duplicate and be sold at a much lower price point, I would say that products like this have created the problem of piracy themselves. I don't condone it, but I put the blame back on the companies.

Am I the only one who finds the idea of deliberately exploding kittens absolutely abhorrent?

What were the game makers thinking?!

Maybe they trod in some cat poop once, must have been something that turned them against the purring wee critters.

So by that metric music and dvds are certainly fair game as you can forge them for pence, even though films can cost 50-100m to make.

These could be made for 50p, the pirates are ripping you off too.

I think I said overcharge, rather than disks cost 50p etc, and ye, cinema's do overcharge. its anywhere between £10-£15 to see a film, and £3.49 for a bag of sweets that asda would charge you £1.00 for. If they can happily overcharge you £2.49 for a bag of sweets that you know costs a quid (and dont start me on popcorn), imagine what they are overcharging out of that £10-£15!

Depending on the film they sometimes make virtually nothing on the showing, and rely on the sweets etc. to break even. Why go to the cinema at all when you can download the film? Why even write a dvd when you can stream?

Our cinema closed down just before Christmas, but they only charged £8 each. We now have no cinema, if they'd charged a bit more maybe we would?
