I saw $35 for the game. Is that because it's a smaller company and they have a smaller production? If I look at Memoir'44 for example, really nice components, about the same price. I know designers need to get paid. Just wondering.

Yep, because online stores typically discount games 30%. Sirlin Games has decided not go that route so you'll need to pay full retail for their games.

You're also right about the smaller company thing. The games are actually as cheap as Sirlin can make them.

It's tough out there for an independent developer.

I enjoy the game, and find the components satisfactory for the price.

I figured. I have found it makes trading tough also. I was looking trade Days of Wonder Memoir for Flash Duel, but I don't think I can do it.

Also, remember that only part of the pricing has to do with components. You are also paying for the intellectual property that has been developed. There is a lot of game in FD, and it has been tested for balance extensively. That may or may not be worth a premium to you.
