    • 2006, Katie Salen Tekinbas, ‎Eric Zimmerman, The Game Design Reader: A Rules of Play Anthology (page 551)
      The mindset of making collectables runs against that of making games—if you succeed in the collectable department then there is a tendency to keep new players out and to drive old ones away because of escalating prices.
