It's hard to say, I don't know how long they've been together. If they're a recent couple, that could explain it. It does seem like he's trying too hard, but then I don't know his financial situation. Is he particularly well off? Maybe tossing down $128 isn't that big a deal to him. If they're not married, he's not yet your brother-in-law and he might be trying really hard to make a good impression. Remember, yours is the family of someone he wants to spend the rest of his life with. It's may not be bribery, but more a way of saying, "Hey, I'm in love with this woman and I want her to be my wife, which means entering into this family, so here's something you want because I want us to be friends."


I've had boyfriends in the past do this with my family. My current boyfriend isn't made of money, but he does his best to ingratiate himself to my parents and siblings when we're together. This year he made Origami Christmas ornaments for everyone, and they're adorable (and affordable!). It's not that he's pretending to be a good person, he totally is. It's just that when you're with your loved one's family you tend to be on your best behavior and do what you think will make them happy. Maybe your sister's boyfriend saw that you wanted this game set and he just wanted to make you happy.


The real acid test is in how he acts about everything else. If he's just throwing money around like it's chicken feed but doesn't bother with being nice, then something's up. If he genuinely cares about her, and about her family by extension, then he'll show it in other, smaller ways. Watch how he treats people, especially strangers. That will tell you more than anything. I don't know specifics, but I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt in situations like this. He still has to earn trust and respect like anyone else, but everyone deserves a grace period.
