What is everyones opinion on why joint revenue has been on the decline over the years? Do you contribute it to a shift in the publics perception of the honesty of games? Do you think the public pays more attention now to the value of the stock vrs the play cost? Do you think it has to do with stores like Dollar Tree stocking low cost novelty items other retailers typically stayed away from? (we can buy that at the dollar tree.)

I personally think it has less to do with the integrity of games, although it plays a role, and more with a shift in consumer spending. Traditionally low cost merchandise (trading $3 for 30 cent stock) in a value driven world just isn't appealing anymore. Plus, the public has direct access to the prices we pay. I have seen marks standing at the counter looking at Bones website after seeing the tag on the plush, although others refrain from posting case prices they still see a ballpark number.

What are your thoughts and what are you personal ideas to capture the publics interest in playing games more than we are
seeing now?
