While we have resisted raising prices over the past few years, fast-rising fuel and raw material costs, combined with a weakening dollar, have led to significant increases in our production and shipment costs for games. These issues have finally reached a point where we can no longer ignore them. We have made the decision to offset these costs by increasing the MSRP on a number of Days of Wonder titles. Below are the products that are changing, along with their new MSRP.
Mystery of the Abbey
Shadows over Camelot
Ticket to Ride (almost forgot this one)
I'm also getting news that Vallejo paint prices are going up by about 10%, based entirely on currency adjustments. Paint bottles have risen from $3 to $3.29 to probably $3.59 soon, all over the past three years. Vallejo is from Spain, while Citadel standard paints are made in the UK, with foundation paints made in China (Shanghai).
