I've been trying to find this at a reasonable price, and it just seems like it's really hard to come by. Does anyone know what the deal is?

I read recently in a different post that the game was between printings. Perhaps that's the reason for the delay...

It is simple: because it is AWESOME!

So naturally whenever is found in nature, it is taken and sold in a devious secondary market.

Ooh May! I hope they're still on track for that date. The expected date used to be March, but then it got push back.

It's probably correct that the game is awesome, although it's awesomeness is a subjective matter. It is not correct that this is the reason it is hard to find. There are quite a few awesome games that are easily available, so awesomeness is demonstrably not a sufficient condition to explain non availability.

A game is hard to find because it has sold out and is either out of print or awaiting another print. The latter, as has been mentioned, is the case for this game.
