Hey, I wonder if this is the game that maxwell has been playing?

I probably shouldn't say anything.  I dont know him and he has never done anything to me, but I have read his posts and I just couldn't resist.  :mrgreen:


Actually, that card game is a lot of fun. Used to play it some ten years ago with my friends. Then, I got UTTERLY WIPED OUT too often and stopped playing it. Hmmm, I always wanted to get a copy of this, so thanks for the reminder!


I've got a copy of this somewhere, bought it at a garage sale for laugh value, never even opened it, it was funny enough just leaving it out for visitors to see.

Here is something for the REAL Completist.  

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 8&rd=1

Considering the "OVERWHELMING POPULARITY" of this film to the collectors here on this site, I would imagine that there is going to be a HUGE flurry of activity sniping at the end here.  Hurry up though just over 3 hours left.....

I just realized why I never heard of this before. This must be a new WotC writer or something, although it amazingly looks very similar to the MM2.

The auction title itself is only kind of funny.  The thing that cracked me up is the seller's Ebay handle.  I wonder what was going through this guy's thoughts when he decided on "flyingdork".  :lol:

I have seen him before. Maybe he is a pilot with a pocket protector?
Okay bad joke.

Do not underestimate the astuteness of the dork!
It is a very smart individual, indeed, who actually purchased an original WD binder, yet never used it for the 'zines... :P

I've been keeping an eye on this reseller over the last couple of years.  He often seems to have choice items to sell.  I've dealt with him before.  Much preferred to Cougar.  Plus he's from mine and major-axe's home town.  Although it's not someone we know.

Even though he's happy to gloss over selling reprints as "presumed" originals, to the less-clued-up buyers... ;)

I'll stick with sentences #1 and #3 from that batch as recommendations. And probably #4 over #2.

Well, I guess someone had to warn the list; cryptically or otherwise.

Haven't received any replies to my dork-directed queries 'bout those.
Suspect any replies won't be posted on the listing, though. *prepares to be pleasantly surprised*.
(But the #1 is a good-un, no?).

Yeah, we had this discussion with regards the TBH #1s, didn't we?
(Except those don't state "reprint" on the front cover!)

I bought a 1993 expert set (I think it was 1993, the later one) from him about a year ago.  His description noted that the "best thing about this unopened box is that its filled with 20 year old air".  Well it was something like that.

I received my item overseas in less that two weeks in perfect condition.

So no problems here. :)
