Jim's markup is very slim - he once hinted to me that a typical boardgame
markup is just a few dollars. I suspect the 5% was eating into this as more
and more people were taking advantage of it. I'll admit the prices are
often so low I sometimes feel badly taking another 5% for the SGS discount.
Of course I'm the same guy that has yet to take the Funagain price guarantee
because I feel the slightly higher prices are worth the great website
interface, reviews, and ability to track down hard to find games (I've only
used this once, but they came through for me!). Not getting the additional
5% will not dissuade me from continuing to use Boulder (as well as Funagain)
in the future.
By the way (for the benefit of the multitude of new UG subscribers this
week), UG2 stands for Unity Games II which is our all-day gaming event being
held on Saturday March 17, 2001. There will be lots of people and tons of
boardgames to play - let me know if you think you might like to make it!
