I’m not really understanding this whole Battle for Zendikar fat pack drama. but I’m also not well informed on the prices at some stores. It might be that in Austin, we’re quite spoiled by so many great game stores that carry Magic cards. To my knowledge, none of them are selling them for more than MSRP. My only theory on the drama is that some cities that have very few game stores in their area are doubling or tripling the prices? Because even at a mark up of 20%, I still don’t think it’s worth getting too upset over. Game stores are allowed to decide on their own profit margin for all their merchandise, right? So yeah. it must be that we’re lucky here in Austin and aren’t having to deal with the price gouging which appears to be quite prevalent in other cities right now according to the social mediaverse?
