Quoted from PanzerFreak:
One sold here locally not to long ago for $7200. Condition (HUO versus routed) and location impacts pricing as well. $6500 - $7k is still the average price range for a perfect HUO game.
Lowest priced sales don't automatically equal the new average pricing.
Both of the games I referenced were purchased HUO with less than 200 plays. I’ve had mine for over a year so maybe the market has rebounded some? Though, a base game was advertised in the classifieds of our local paper for $5,799 around June. For reference, my home is an hour from NYC and Philadelphia, and 15 minutes from JJP.
I happen to enjoy the game, but most of my guests become underwhelmed and move on to another machine after seeing the Smaug clips a few times.
