But looking at it on the table, why is it $90? At most it seems like a $45 game. Is it just priced high right now because it's brand new and hard to get?

Where are you looking? I doubt the price has anything to do with how difficult it is to find, unless you are looking on Amazon?
The game is $46 on MM, and $60 on Canadian retail websites.

The first print run seems to have sold out everywhere, and this game is atop the hot list, so the price has been driven up a bit. MSRP is $70(US), however, which I feel is also slightly inflated given the components, but I won't relitigate that argument here...

MSRP is $70. It is currently in between print runs, so scarcity is driving the price up.

For me, the value in a game is mostly in the game play. From that vantage point, this is a great value for the $70 I paid at Gen Con.

Thank you for the replies. I guess I'll wait until it's around $45 again. Seems like a lot of fun.

I'll be surprised if you can find it that cheap anywhere/anytime soon. In my opinion, it's well worth $60-70 for the "quality" of the game play (even if not the components per se).

The reprint is scheduled for approx. middle of January. If you can wait 2 months, you'll surely get Terraforming Mars at a reasonable price,

Yeah I have no problem waiting that long, between the other board games, DnD, Frostgrave crafting, I'll keep occupied. Thanks.
