Any particular reason why Wii Party is so expensive?

Not Wii Party U, just the regular Wii Party.

http://www.amazon.com/Wii-Party-Nintendo/dp/B003O6DZSQ
http://www.gamestop.com/wii/games/wii-party/78163

Why is it over $30 everywhere? I assume it'd be in the same realm of Wii Play or Wii Music where you can find it for $5... why does it cost so much? Not like it's a AAA first party title like Mario/Zelda/Kirby/Smash that never drop in price

Best guess is it's hard to find. Most games with low supply will have high prices, regardless of demand.

Unlike Wii Play or Music, Wii Party was actually pretty dang good. Party U was basically a remake in many aspects though, so you might just wanna get that.

The sequel to Boom Blox is hard to find, but it's not expensive at all

l'm going to assume most people write Boomblox off as shovelware. And it sold fairly well if l remember, otherwise Party U wouldn't exist.

Boom blox was one of the best games for the Wii, and to answer your question it has nothing to so with supple, or hard to find. its the fact that nintnedo highly inflates their prices for their older games.

b/c nintendo highly inflates the price of older games, but even they know when they put out crap. 90% of their games are good games, but they know that no one will by wii music for 40+ dollars.

You know l'm fairly certain he's talking about used prices since Wii games are long out of production.
