Hmm, $34.77 when I just checked. The expansion you recommended was $150. Yikes!

What do you mean "through our link"?
Also Target has the small expansions buy one get one 50% off on their website atm, not sure if theyre still in stock but they were yesterday when I looked.
I'm kinda expecting (or at least hoping) that the wildly overpriced Roll for the Galaxy expansion ends up the same way in a year.
AEG is currently unloading Scorpius Freighter (MSRP $60) for the pleasant price of $25 w/free shipping to continental USA addresses. The (admittedly light) theming is that of space smugglers hiring a crew & transporting goods under the nose of the big bad nasty government. The game is basically a Euro with 3 planet roundels and plenty of combo options to efficiently use your crew in concert with different cargo, along with ship upgrades to make it all happen smoother and earning more points. Plays quickly (under an hour) I like it best with 2, but you can do up to 4. Components are good quality, art is good. It has the same "professional game" whiff that I got from Res Arcana, meaning this is a game the way they made them pre-Kickstarter. Just a solid, easy to pick up and play title.
And it even made it to the front-page of Slickdeals, which is rare for individual boardgames.

Why on Earth would Asmodee do that?

Yeah, the question was tongue in cheek. Clearly the customer base does not perceive the games as having a higher value, eh?
