At $100 each??

Talk about price gouging.

Wow. I never thought I'd agree with comments about price gouging, but it's so obvious it's like... ebay or kijiji.

Full disclosure, I'm the Board Games and Online Sales Manager at 401 Games. I deleted my initial comment as my intention was not to start a negative thread towards ANY retailer raising prices according to market demand. People are very interested in this title and if it were sold for any less someone would buy it out and flip it for much more. From what I can see these are some of the LAST copies , geekmarket listings are already at $100 USD. It's a game in the top 100 and may not be seeing a reprint in the foreseeable future. We constantly strive to have very competitive if not the best pricing but must adjust according to market.

I'm sure if you go to an OJ dedicated website people are loosing their minds over OJ price increases.

That’s just beyond ridiculous. What makes you a white knight for flipping it before others do? You're scalping all the same--you just have a business license for it.

It's called supply and demand. Why should they sell it cheaper than everyone else is?

If you find yourself sitting on 30 copies of something that has suddenly became a rare and hard to get item, you're going to charge more for it.

They are precisely as culpable for selling it for more as one is for wanting it more because it's going out of print--in other words, not at all. They didn't orchestrate the scarcity, and would have happily sold it to you at normal prices prior to the recent news.

Just limit the sales to one copy per address. Done.

Because one cannot tell to few of his buddies to buy copy for him? Apparently no one has friends here...
