So is the Mayfair "price policy" just a scam or... I mean how are they able to charge this price without getting in trouble?

Unfortunately, I don't know what the Mayfair "price policy" is, I was just sharing what I thought was an amazing deal. I'm interested though. Can you share a link with more information?

Paid $65 (plus tax) at my FLGS by combining a rare 20% everything sale plus a $10 rewards payment. Was pretty proud.

Basically... Mayfair came up with a policy that prohibited stores from selling the games cheaper than 10% lower than MSRP (it started at 20% but they decided that wasn't enough).

This is a bit out of date but here's when they first announced it, http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/229526/mayfair-first-publish....

It's one of the reasons Caverna is so expensive to purchase.

Actually, it has no bearing on the cost to produce Caverna or ship it over to the US. The policy only affects the prices usually available. But I guess I knew that was what you meant.

Mayfair's policy prevents regularly offering a discount more than 10%. Retailers can request to offer a sale price with a deeper discount, but Mayfair reserves the right to stop selling games to that retailer if they abuse the privilege.

Being a huge retailer, I'm guessing CoolStuff specifically asked Mayfair for permission to offer a big discount for Black Friday, and of all days to offer a big discount, this is the one that makes the most sense.

Wow! Just checked. CSI is offering free shipping on Caverna at that price as well (no minimum $100 purchase)! Couldn't resist that offer... Grab it while you can.
