As the gaming world is well aware, #frosthaven just finished a massively successful campaign on Kickstarter. But, to get a base copy of that game you had to pay $100 before shipping. There is also the campaign, currently running, for #Ankh: Gods of Egypt, the pledge for the base game is also right at $100. There is, of course, a glut of big, beautiful, bold games that are on Kickstarter or in the retail space. But, most of these few price tags to match.
On the other side of the market are small box games that are often $25 or less. These can be very wonderful, but with a few exceptions, you here a lot less about them. But you can find and pick up real gems in that price range.
Then if course there are some big box games with a pretty "reasonable" price point. By reasonable I mean 30-50 usd. There are a lot of really really good games in this price range.
I guess I am wondering how much would you be willing on spending on a game. I'm keeping this apart from expansions etc.... Just the base range. Is there a price limit at which you will not even consider a grand? If so, what is your price limit? Are people feeling priced out of the hobby when they see these big beautiful games they can't justify.
I think my limit is $100. I haven't broken $100 on a single base game, but I could see myself doing so at some point. What do you think when you see the price for a game?
I'm drop a poll where you can share max price you would consider spending in a perfect circumstance.
