The other guy is invincibleoverlord, and was a regular poster here. But he didn't post for about 6 months.

Welcome to the forum  :D

And that is one of the Pagan Publishing items that I am missing. :(
thesilentpenguin got those for a very low price... 8O


I saw them, but didn't bid, already having AOH; should have, apparently, at that price :D

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

It had plenty of bids so I guess a few people here saw it - how I miss being able to check up on what everyone else is bidding on!

Great win here for harami:

Could easily have gone for nearly twice that.  Won't likely see one in such nice condition again for a looooooong time.   :mrgreen:

Had I known, I would have gone for it. Didn't expect anything to be in that category (Board & Traditional Games > Horror & Monster Games). There's a newbie lesson. I'll have to learn to use search functions. :cry:

I'm with you, but nearly 1600 views, not many rpg items get much past 200.  Is this seller doing something special to get that much interest, or is it just a lot more people being curious in the board games section and clearly still not getting a great price anyway!?

I would love to see a photo of Harami's collection. It must be amazing. I see he just bought your Woodgrain as well.

Why didn't someone tell me?  i've been looking forever and would have bid a ton more...damn.

Edit:  I suppose it's my own fault, and I shouldn't whine, but that was exactly what I'd been hoping to find.  It's so hard trying to replace one's childhood...and ow, that hurts.


Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

Hi,

was at a Wargames Convention at the weekend.

Was browsing at the Bring N Buy and saw someone looking thru a pile of stuff. I couldnt see everything he had, but it included half a dozen Strategic Reviews, plus what looked like a first Tegel, an Inferno, plus a load of other stuff. He bought them all - 19 items , 19 pounds.

Ho hum.   :D

Cheers,
Malc

Malc, you didn't do a running tackle at him, rugby style, and get the items for yourself?   I'm disapponted  :D

The Silver Ann was a pretty decent snag.  Too bad we can't congratulate winners openly the way we used to.  Now we have to guess or wait for them to identify themselves (yes, you, red_bus  :D ).

:lol: sadly not me.  I deliberately left off the Courting Madness because I knew grodog was looking - shame you didn't get it Allan..  Thought the Tales went a little high, but that Booty looked nice. Agree that Silver Ann was a decent snag  :D

I am fairly sure that the SA set went to Serleran. I was the underbidder and was hoping to snag it for a song.  Oh well. :)

With the bad economy I personally just don't have the extra cash, but if you do, you really should be in full-on buying mode right now.  The lack of serious bidders on a lot of these items makes for a buyer's paradise.   You could really fill in some holes in your collection, or re-sell for a considerable markup some time in the future.  Conversely, if you didn't have to sell right now, I wouldn't.  Lots of the reliable high bidders seem to have dropped out of the system lately.
