Am I going crazy? I've had this on my wish list on CSI for awhile; I thought it was around $50-60. Now it's $79.99 with a MSRP of 85. Why did it go up? Is the reprint different?

Maybe I'm just not remembering the prices correct...

I don't think the reprint is out yet. So, I suspect this is just the effect of something going out of print. Once there are less copies around for a popular game, price tends to climb.

It was $85 when I bought it a year or so ago at the local game shop and the same shop has another copy right now for the same price. CSI may have had it at a discounted price but I'm pretty sure it's always been that high direct from GMT and at most local shops.

Edit: I believe the reprint is a straight up re-issue, nothing new other than possibly some errata added to the rules/playbook.

When I got the first print through GMT's P500 program, it was about $60, with an $85 MSRP.

The game has NOT been reprinted. Cool Stuff just got their hands on some of the last copies, so they are selling them closer to MSRP, because the game is sold out everywhere.

TC,

I'm not surprised the first printing sold out. I was so worried about getting a copy that I made it my first pre-500 order. EVER.

again, if anyone is desperate to get their hands on a copy right now, my local shop has a copy (at least as of wednesday). as long as the price and shipping are covered, i'll pick it up and ship it out to anywhere in the US.
