While doing the accounts this Easter weekend, we realised that there’s been quite a few games (mostly from Days of Wonder) have increased in prices from our distributors. After some discussion and review, we realised we had to follow the price increase as in many cases, the price increases literally removed all our profits.
Ticket to Ride being a good case- and a reason why some people we believe bought 3 copies at a time. And while we’ve always strived to keep our prices low, we really would like to get paid sometime this year. Thus the price increases. We are still keeping to our old margins, so we’ve just passed on the price increase directly without adding anything further.
Other popular games that have gone up in prices include Carcassonne and Alhambra. And we’ve been told that there might be even more price increases coming down the road. As always, if you have questions, do feel free to drop us a note.
