FFG Games Prices

Got curious to see how the announced end of the licensing arrangement between FFG and Games Workshop affecting pricing of the affected games. So far, not much. Copies of Talisman, Warhammer Quest and Warhammer Conquest are still readily available and the price has stayed pretty stable at around list price or a bit below on those as are prices on the Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Fantasy role playing games, though a couple of out of print supplements for Talisman and the Warhammer RPG have tripled in price.

The games in the line that have seen significant price increases are Chaos in the Old World and Fury of Dracula. Chaos in the Old World has sold for around double its list price of $59.99 for a shinkwrapped copy while some online shops list  Fury of Dracula for anywhere from double to 5 times its current MSRP. While snagging a copy of Chaos at that price might be worth it if you really want it, since I doubt FFG will reprint it before the license expires, if you want a copy of Fury of Dracula, you should probably put in a pre-order at your FLGS as FFG has indicated at least one more printing will arrive prior to the reversion of the license to GW.
