So, I recently acquired a copy of SPI's World War II: European Theater of Operations on the cheap. It wasn't inventoried and I had no idea of whether it was complete or not. After just inventorying the game, everything is complete and in good condition, which makes me quite happy. I looked on the game page here and did a search on ebay and it seems that this game is running for something around $100. That shocked me. The other thing that shocked me was that no one seems to want it for trade or anything. I'd appreciate feedback as to whether this price is even mildly realistic.

I see one for $50 BIN (no clue as to the completeness) and one with a $10 bid on it with one day left. The one for $100 on BGG has been listed since 2008. I think there just isn't much demand for it, even though I hear it is much better than the newer A:ETO.

Edit: Also $28 for a very good from Noble Knight.

I paid 14 for a first edition. I went 24 for the PTO which was unpunched. Unfortunately I have a mismatched pair now. Good game but I can't see paying more than 50 for it in great shape.

I paid $100 for both European and Pacific about 2 years ago, one of which was unpunched, so $100 for one is probably too much.

This game is not that rare - 100 bucks is gouging.

30-40 for it is about right.

I sold my copy (previously punched and played, although complete) at the WBC auction in 2011 and received $12.
