...just got a notice that this is back in stock at Cool Stuff. For $12.00 more than it was before. I guess it is nice to be in demand. Create a demand for your game then raise the price by 25%?

At least my wallet will be happier!

Still the same price here at my FLGS. And I'm comparing when it sold out the first time and had to wait a week for the next shipment to come in. Might be specific to CS.

The MSRP hasn't changed. Portal has no control over what retailers sell it for.

This. My FLGS has it for $80, but I know that's outside of Portal's control. Looking on Amazon right now I see a copy for $59.99 which seems about right. My recommendation is to check various sources.

It's $56.99...on Coolstuff.

MSRP is $70 and at a point in time before the game came out it's pre-order price was $75 after the kickstarter.

If they had it up there for $44.99 before, that was a steal. The components and everything about the game and its design is quality and well worth most games that have a similar price tag.

Hi -- there was no Kickstarter. Portal invested a lot of money to print this. They conducted a pre-order campaign via their site, but did not use crowdfunding.

Thanks everyone for the input. I appreciate the corrective perspective rendered from my fellow bgg-ers! I can see that I was more than a little wrong in my initial 'outrage' at the presumed change in price.
