What is the large fold out map from? Is that part of B1 or G1? I don't recall seeing it before.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Not for a listing with about a third of it being Dragon Lance.... never did get into it...
The only Non-DL item in that listing that I might be interested in I already have 6 copies of, two of them SW, so nope...

Nice picture though.  :roll:  Shows lots of clarity and detail doesn't it? 8O

I think the seller is one of our own, but looks like a good lot anyway:

Some interesting stuff. A total of 65 mags, a combination of roleplaying and wargaming. Early SpaceGamers (#2 - #14), plus others including Gryphon, Pegasus, Spartan, F&M, General, Nexus etc etc.


$45 for shipping...ouch! Thats from Oregon to Tacoma, WA!

I won an auction of 59 Dragon mags from OR and it only cost me $12 shipping.

YOU complain? I was landed a shipping bill of $ 130  8O  8O  8O  being told to choose between USPS Parcel Post or UPS Ground (still more expensive and with a high risk of customs fees...). Argh! If the package is not here very fast, I'll claim my money from PayPal very quickly.

And that's after you pointed out it's against eBay rules to overcharge on shipping?
(That's 2 * 25 kilo M-Bags by surface mail plus a $30 handling charge, I think).

Do "books" not count as zero-rated with regards import/customs duty into Italy?

There is a big difference between around the world and a 2 hour drive to this sellers doorstep! He even charges a $5 handling fee for local pick-ups!
I wonder if he charges that for people who come in off the street?

Dear harami2000,

Hey thanks alot for your high bid, I got a ton of cash for that book ;)

Thank you,

Which is interesting, since I didn't have a placed bid in the final auction analysis.

Apparently he's also clueless enough to not know what a "bid retraction" is (not that I really wanted one of those on my record).

*shrugs*

See for me that email would be cause for some serious retribution, regradless of the fact that you retracted your bid :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:
In reality I could really care less that some schmuck spent probably 3 times the real value of the book, but his intent to try to rub my nose in it is what cause me to make him pay the price.  :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

eBay.com Item Bid History

430.00 wow.

two bidders > double your bid Aneoth.

I thought the final bid would exceed $200, but $430, wow.

It looks like I will have to increase my disposable income if I want to become a "winner".

I wouldn't fret too much about that. Those are some nice first print AD&D books, and the Dark Tower certainly helped, but IMO (and taking the PHB, MM, & DMG at a price of $75.00 each) that top bidder overpaid by at least $100.00 on that lot, if not more. :roll:

I was nearly at my limit when I was finally able to get above your high bid. I was never able to get any answers to my major inquiries from the seller, so I stopped bidding. Like my grandpa always told me when we played family poker together.

:roll: "I never bought a pig in a poke, and I aint startin' now!" :roll:

You see he would NEVER play a poker game we called Mexican Sweat (some folks called it "No-Peek").....

Mexican Sweat: Each player is dealt 7 cards face down and is not allowed to look at ANY of the 7 down cards until they had bet that their hand would beat the hand just to their right (Beginning with the top card from the left over stack after the dealer finishes dealing 7 cards to each player face down. The top card of the left over stack is turned over by the dealer and then the first player to the left of the dealer Bets if he thinks that he can beat that single card with his 7 cards. Then after the betting is over for that round, he begins turning one card at a time over, until one card, or some combination of more than one card beats the left over stacks top card. Once he beats the top card, he stops turning his cards over, and then the next player bets that he can beat the previous players hand the same way with one, some or all of his as yet unexpsosed cards. (Later players must beat ONLY the currently exposed cards of the player to the right of them)

Each successive player to the left of the last one to turn cards over then bets whether they can beat the last persons exposed cards, and so on, until all 7 of everyone's cards are turned over, or until all but one player gives up. (Folds their hands).

If you do "Peek" out of hand, then you must fold your hand and match the pot, loosing all of that money to whomever eventually wins that hand...

Sometimes, it was a tough game to take. It took no skill at all; just dumb luck that your hand was better than everyone else's hand, since no one was allowed to "Peek" before betting. And yet it almost always resulted in nice huge piles of poker chips in the middle of the table.....

Oh and please Don't ask me what a poke is. I never was able to pry that information out of my Grandpa.... and he passed away over twenty years ago. You would think that my dad would have told me at some point, but he won't tell me either….
