Odd that this drop ended so quickly.
Notice an even 60 sold? Was almost certainly limited to 60.
Yeah not sure the thinking on this other than a teaser to get people on site which is fine but disappointing.
Massdrop is almost certainly not to blame for a limited qty. These copies aren't shipping until February. That suggests they are coming from the next print run. Every copy was likely presold, allocated to various outlets. Looks like Massdrop got 60 copies, and instead of holding onto them and speculating (no Massdrop's business model), they blew them out, likely hoping for buyers to make add'l purchases on Massdrop (that is their business model).
What is Massdrop's fault is not being transparent about how many copies were on offer. They used to be. Lately I have seen to suggestion of limited stock until an item sells below 20 units left, then a countdown to zero. They used to say right up front, " ### copies left ... "
I had my eye on several deals over the past week ... and I missed every single last one of them. All out of stock. These board gamers are freaking animals!
