I have talked about web pricing and value before. This copy of Stratego illustrates exactly what I mean. This fantasy themed version of the game came out in 2008 and went out of print soon after. A Google search shows the game priced anywhere from $10.99 to $299.99 The only time a price you find on the web should be taken seriously is if you find a consensus of pricing on the item. If you find several people listing your copy of Stratego for $300 then you might be safe in pricing it that, but if an equal number price it closer to $30, then, if you want to sell it, setting your price closer to that point is a much better decision.
