Posted By: Thor O2. "Everything you need to play" is less of a selling point than you think. RPG gamers don't think in terms of buying something for a whole group the way board gamers do. They think about supplying their personal needs. A $70 boxed set that supplies everything needed to play for 5 players is an incredible value. It comes out to $14 per player. But many RPG gamers will balk at that price.
Posted By: Neko EwenCase in point: How people completely freaked out over Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd Edition's $100 price tag. Also, people were really losing it over the possibility of losing components, to a degree that I don't think I've ever seen among people who play board games.
Posted By: Ben LehmanHey, Thor: Did you get Mouse Guard into that display? How?yrs----Ben
Unless you're providing custom components of some sort that are mega awesone, I don't feel a box is worth the while.
Posted By: Ben LehmanSo it seems like folks think the boxed sets generally aren't worth the price, at least when they mostly contain books. Is that a fair sense of the gestalt?
