So - in a nutshell - what is it?

thanks, if I buy it I'll buy the larger size (I am actually upset at myself, because - scarf or no scarf - I most probably I am going to buy it anyway - I have the standard deck and is not just beautiful, actually it works well for reading - I really love this deck)

So...
(1) Baba Studio appears to be changing their marketing direction
(2) A lot of their loyal customers, those who were there during MRP's humble start are no longer part of their marketing focus
(3) Those who were there from the beginning are feeling a bit left out
(4) Most people agree that this is a normal reaction
(5) Most people agree that as a profit making entity Baba can do whatever they want

Of course is their prerogative - also my right to have an opinion - and if my comment discourage them at such a degree to give an option to people to buy the large size with or without the scarf - this is just going to help some people.

Absolutely right! That's how I feel too about them.

For 5. As a profit making entity Baba can do whatever the customers allow them to do / are willing to pay. If they price a luxury deck at 1000 $, do we pay? If yes, the show goes on, the sky is the limit. And it's on us, not on them, they exist as a business because costumers pay.

Hear, hear I was impressed by your succinctness, too, HS!

Yeah, the Prague's a beautiful-looking deck. But I'm in the boat with the folks who feel strange about the prices. I said my piece earlier in the thread, no need to repeat.

I feel much the same about high fashion and other luxury items (that they're not worth it--for me), so it's not surprising. I think it's something you're either of one mind or the other about!

No mention of money. It's money that seems to be bothering people. You can call it "left out" or not being part of a marketing focus - but for all the euphemisms - people want something nice, cheaper. Understandable, but I still think it amounts to a bit of a tantrum.
