Yeah, American prices make me pretty jealous. EUR 4.00 for me. They're even higher in Britain, which is non-Euro. And we can't order sealed product online because WotC prohibits stores from selling out of their regions.
I don't know why the prices are so much higher. It may be an EU thing; free trade inside the EU at the price of expensive trade outside of it. But I can't say for certain.

Wizards is a US company and so part of it is simply the location of the headquarters is in america. Another is I do know they undergo import taxes when distributed to Europe but I cannot say how much. I wanna make the claim its around 10 percent but not certain.
