** expired/removed eBay auction **


This really doesn't qualify under "Laughable Item", more like "Clueless Seller", but this thread is still the most fitting because the sheer stupidity of it made me laugh.  Maybe we should create a "Clueless Seller" thread for these types of circumstances. :)

Man, there are so many problems there...got the author wrong, and the date dead wrong...plus the picture of the Dungeon Geomorphs, if they are with the set and complete they are worth about 20 of those box sets!  How funny.

A clarification from the seller reads as follows:

"The Geomorps are complete & uncut. There are also 2 clear plastic overlay sheets that I did not scan & forgot the mention in the posting. They appear to be for measuring distance but I am not sure. These are my sons games."

Important Edit:  The seller has re-mailed me and said

"This regarding city state invincible over lord. Please review the new information on this item. there were so many pieces to this game and I was confused as how to count the geomorphs . i have posted the correct info."

And the correct info from the auction is now

My apologizes. I am really confused about the Geomorphs. I went throught them again and far as I can tell there are three sets. Set 1 is complete, set 2 is complete but 1 sheet has pencil marks, set 3 is missing 2 of the card stock sheets. None of them are cut.

And now my post is illegible due to italics and boldface and edits.  :)

Here is another one of those Super Duper Ultra Rare Gateway to Adventure Catalogs:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I really love this line:

This is in NEW condition and never used.  I never had the chance to use these


he has never had the chance to use it???? Use it for what? A drink coaster. :roll:

And yet this line might even be the best ever on Ebay. Jonb would be proud of this line:

will not find this anywhere, that I can tell you for sure


Whatever. :roll:

I like "That means some RARE and Incredible finds at great pricing."

Thanks for sharing the link bclarkie, I mean, you could've just bid on it yourself. Now the whole Acaeum crowd will compete furiously on this RARE and incredible find!

Perhaps it's so rare that nobody wants to bid on it because they don't know what it is?

Along the lines of the TSR boardgame 'Glixir' that was mentioned here a while ago - do people just not think? (Argh!!)


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

Heh.  Actually, I might keep an eye on that.  Bleak House was one of the boxed sets that I lost in a flood at my last house.  Lost me a few choice items, that flood did.  On the other hand, it also got rid of Elminster's Ecologies, which I'm still not sure why I bought in the first place.  So maybe not all bad... ;)

"Sorry I can't find a picture of the combat medic."  So instead I'll use a picture of a woman dressed like demon in lingerie.

Oh well - that got too pricey too quickly  (seller quoted $26.00 shipping for surface mail, so a bit of a no-brainer there, lol).  A guy from my gaming group went for it (reinbo), but he got sniped right at the end, heh heh.  No spouse this time around :D

That Japanese woman seems to find lignerie quite boring...she looks bored and pissed off.

For $4500 you could at least spell dungeons right.  Even if you are from the French part of Canada.
