The Dungeon! boardgame with a $39.99 bin (don't know how reasonable that is...):

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

In this listing, BTW, there's a paragraph entitled "A little history" wherein the seller goes on to use just about every key word you'd want to use while searching for TSR related auctions. Isn't that... um... illegal by eBay rules? I found this auction while searching for Metamorphosis Alpha for crineoutloud.

Yeah, the keyword spamming is against eBay rules.

Wow, he's a keyword spammer par excellence. Read his spam for his fly fishing books, for crying out loud, he managed to keyword spam those!  I reported everyone of his auctions.....

That reminds me of my old idea....

Dictionary for sale.
Contains entries for the following words...


But I cant find a dictionary word list that I can easily copy and paste into Word. I don't want to type out all the entries.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Y'know, it's kind of tempting?  $100 is a bit much for a lark though.  And the guy probably isn't prepared to even have a buyer.  But still, wouldn't it be something if the guy ended up sending a bunch of rare stuff?

Sorry, I will now depart from fantasy land.  :wink:

Are you kidding?  Do you have any idea how rare "stuff" is?  8O Unfortunately, the auction ended early due to an error in the listing.  :cry:

LOL!  I was emailing with the guy last night.  He had an deal made to sell some books to someone from a message board or something, and they were just going to go through ebay to protect the buyer, hence the lack of description. Don't know why he cancelled the auction unless the guy backed out or he's just gotten so many questions that he thinks a real auction will bring him more money.  :wink:

LOL, I had one like that in my store this month, here is the listing and the very limited description (since the buyer already wanted the item and I basically listed it just to sell to him):

No, no difference, just that the guy had emailed me with the question "Do you have the TSR item with the map of Mithral Hall"?  After racking my brains a few minutes, I figured this is the only product it could be, since the map never appeared in any 2nd edition adventure that I'm aware of.  He just wanted to make sure he got the item with the map of Mithral Hall in it...so I put it up for auction and made sure he knew that was the one (Yeh it's actually on the pages Kill said but I was pointing to the page where the description of the Drizzt novels began, at least I think so...)

That's odd -- the same seller seems to have the rest of the contents of the Silver Anniversary boxed set, too.  

It arguably makes sense to split up something simple like a white box (*waves to Grayson*), but I think he'd do better selling this item whole...then again, I've been wrong many times before.  :?

This one can land on either side. I previously had great success breaking up these sets and selling the L3, grouping the Gs together, etc., except for my last attempt. I ended up taking it in the teeth a little bit on that one, getting about half of what I was hoping for on the L3 (it was a no-reserve auction) and having the rest fall short of expectations, as well.

As often happens with eBay, I think I just got caught up in the fabled "bad timing" on the last attempt (and, perhaps, there might have been some "good timing" on the earlier sales).
