Board Game Prices

I have noticed when restocking games that prices are continuing to go up. The Combat Commander series now has a RRP of £59.99 ,Railways of the World £58.99 and Descent £69.99 These are just three examples. Without doing a detailed analysis i would guess that most mainstream games have increased in price by between 40% and 75% in the last 20 months. That is a huge increase compared to RPI. I am not going to speculate as to the reasons. I know board games sales have bucked the trend of the recession but i don't believe that the elastcitiy of demand is such that these increases are sustainable, especially in a market where good games are released week after week.
