In the UK, retailers are listing this at close to GBP 50.

While I appreciate what looks to be nice solid components, this is pretty pricey for a quickfire party game in the mould of Masquerade.

I would take a punt at around half the price, as I ythink it could be fun to throw in here and there at a family dinner, or as a quick finisher after the main game, but at this price the game better be really good - and so far the reviews don't seem to justify it.

Interested to see how well this sells.

Nah, GBP 50 sounds way overpriced. In Germany, this sells for about 35 €, which is quite an ok price for what you get, especially considering the component quality.

Yes, this is much more realistic, in my opinion.

Germany games players get much better deals in general, it seems. Bigger market, lower overheads I assume.

I agree with you. In Canada the lowest retail I found was appx $45+tax. For that kind of money, there are better bluffing games. I wonder if the high price is to offset the game components? Red Dragon Inn offers more depth and replay value.

I feel like $40 is too high for this type of game. I'd pull the trigger at $20 for sure, maybe $25. But I really can't justify the high price for what I feel like is a Spyfall or Resistance type game.
