    Bugger US rating.

    Good price still.

    I'm a bit ignorant of this stuff…
    Can I gift this to someone with a switch that was bought in Australia ?
    Will it work? or does it require some tweaking

      Switch isn't region lock, so you can play on AU console.

      No tweaking will work.

      Just different ratings on the case and cartridge

      For me as a collector i like to keep it the same rating theme so it doesnt look out of place.

      Nintendo Switch is region free so any game from any region will play without any problems :D

      Only issue is if you want to purchase DLC, sometimes it has to be bought from the matching region to work.

    FYI this actually works quite well—surprisingly well
    It can get slow/laggy as the game grinds on but a save and reload clears that up

      Thanks for sharing. I was a bit concerned about that this morning when it was $18. But at $15, it really worth the risk, lol

      I've had the opposite where the game got in a loop and wouldn't let me finish my turn until Id finished moving, but no units had any move left.
      I searched the internet but in the end had to scrap the game and start over. Haven't touched it since.
      Until that point I was enjoying it.

    Why is this game so cheap?

    •  

      They are now selling their own version of game pass/season pass type thing for Civ 6

      More base game owners of a game they have sold and re sold the world over means more dlc and game pass sales

      It's not very playable on Switch (unless you have a very high pain threshold)

  •  

    Bought in a past deal for ~$25 and it's still in its shrink wrapping yikes :/

    Was this game free on Epic?

    Anything else with $35 is suggested? Don’t want to pay $7.5 for shipping.

        Even with prime its not free unless over $49 spend

          I bought Luigi's Mansion separately earlier today - would Amazon let you bundle this into the delivery … so I can avoid the 7.95 delivery?
          Do they have a chat feature to allow that?

          •  

            @BigMoth: since civ 5 is from amazon usa the other items that need to tally up to $49 aud need to also be from amazon usa so no.

      I highly, highly recommend Risk of Rain 2

      It's $33 from Amazon US currently and includes Risk of Rain 1 as well.

      As of today I have 190 hours on the Switch version of Risk of Rain 2. Not really a brag, but a testament to the fact it is playable and enjoyable on the weakest platform it's been ported to

      •  

        Could also consider Everspace (around $30 currently), A Hat in Time (~$37, but I can't attest to its quality) or Deadly Premonition 2 (~$41) depending on your taste

        •  

          I checked the gameplay of risk of rain 2 on youtube, it is frankly not my cup of tea. Everspace….I thought about this one (when you posted the deal a few months back?) which reminds of freelancer many many many years ago… but it only costs a few dollors for the pc version and I m not sure if i will have enough time for the repetitive missions.

            @aec: That's fair. Not much else went cheap from overseas in terms of Switch games this black friday unfortunately.
