Dresden Files RPG

Holy smokes. So, I tried to buy the Dresden Files RPG a couple of weeks ago, and it was sold out. The local gaming store, Aero Hobbies is out but hoping to get it back in. I held off on ordering it from Amazon, since I'd rather support my local gaming store.

Today they said they're out, and just don't know when they'll get it back in...so to Amazon I go....where the only copy is going for $168.00. WHAT?? Seriously? Speculative and predatory pricing on an RPG? What a load of nonsense!

yeah, I do have the PDF, I just wanted a hard copy, since we'll actually be playing the game.

This is not new. Look for some older titles and sometimes you'll see stuff upward of $200.

Ok for something out of print. But something just released?

Oh, I think it's ludicrous all around.
In any case, the game store in Concord (about 9 mi. from Walnut Creek) has stacks and stacks of the Dresden books, so let me know if you need them.

I think you have a profiteering opportunity on your hands there, Jesse!

Earlier this year I was looking around for an out-of-print paperback, Emergence by David Palmer. I remembered really liking it when I read it some 20 years ago and was curious to see how it had aged.

$120.00 for a used paperback. Seriously.

Clearly, I have not reread the book as planned.
