When I came to the page for this game to check some forum entries I saw the ad from Funagain with a price of $31.95. This looked high to me as I paid less than $25 for my copy from Game Surplus.

After doing a little searching, I see that Funagain and the Rio Grande web site list the MSRP as $39.95, while all other sites I looked at have it listed at $34.95.

This results in a wider disparity of price than normal between the other online discounters and Funagain.

I'm wondering if there is a typo on the RGG web site and Funagain just picked that up in setting their price or if the MSRP actually did increase and the other FOGS are lagging in updating their prices.

Making a $10 (33%) jump in price from the other Alea mid-box titles seems a bit steep, so I'm guessing that there is a typo involved.

RGG's order form also has it as $39.95, see http://riograndegames.com/news/order.pdf

However Alliance Games, one of the major distributors, has the MSRP as $34.95, see http://alliance-games.com/publicaccess/

So the retailers, at least the ones supplied by Alliance Games, are buying it at wholesale based on the $34.95 MSRP.

I got it for $35 from a local retail store, minus a trade or two of magic cards which brought it down to $15 actually. But it seems all RGG prices have gone up by $5 recently.
