Just thinking about it the past few days. And I should start out saying that TAF and TZ (esp TZ) are really cool well done games. But are they really 2-3x more game than say WCS94, JM, or Congo (wide range I know). These games seems to go for 2k-2.5k or SO. TAF and TZ seem to go for 5k-6k. I've had a discussion with my wife about getting a TZ a few times and we always come to the same conclusion.....there are enough 1k-2.5k games out there we like that it's hard to justifying selling 2-4 games to buy one.
To me it's a market thing. NOT a supply thing.....these are two of the most produced games ever. They are EVERYWHERE. Here are the Pinside owner numbers:
So there are plenty to go around, no supply issue... not looking for a fight, just start a discussion on how these prices could be defended outside of pure market value. Which is cool. When I bought my JM I looked at the market to tell me what's fair and when I go to sell I'll do the same thing. Just thinkin'. Are there really three times the modes, toys, and fun?
Maybe you can convince me....
