I should bid on that.  I've got a wilderness crawl planned and I need some hexgrid paper to map things out with beforehand.

What?

I need blank hexpaper, I'm going to bid on that, get it, and use it for what it's intended for.

Sure, and I'll be using the crayons provided in the basic set to color in the pictures of first print hardcovers and rare modules.  :wink:

See, that's just crazy talk.

The crayons didn't come in enough colors to do a good job.  You'll want to get a full box of Crayolas first, and supplement with the ones from the D&D box.

:D

Hmmm. That is not a bad idea. I might color in the griffin on my Ghost Tower, electric blue perhaps. Or better yet, I'll just turn over my den to my 3 year old and hand him a box of magic markers. He's already had tons of practice on the walls.

See now there is an excellent idea, I always thought that those damn rare monos needed more color. :lol:

Actually, I could use the pages to make paper mache figurines.

I have a load of GW hex paper as loose sheets. I don't recall if it came in a pad, or it came as a pack of 50 loose sheets, but I still use it. I don't have the cover sheet anyhow. I don't imagine loose sheets of hex paper are worth anything.

No box, loose inner pages and old tape repair damage inside 2 books, one has markings, and Ships only to the UK and Europe .......
Not high priced yet though, may be a good buy for someone who has yet to obtain a set for reading purposes, especially if they are also located in the UK.

I think the link below has already been posted. Currently at $43.21, with 1-1/2 days left.
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 5167225865
I have an update. I wrote the seller with a couple of inquiries and he just wrote back.

The PHB is a third print... The DMG and the MM are of course not first prints either. But all three of those books look to be in nice condition to me, the DMG less so than the other two, but still not bad. Overall, the lot seems to be worth watching at least and possibly worthy of a bid later on if the price does not skyrocket out of control.

Several re-sellers are in the bidding, but the cougar has not placed a bid (Yet), although I suspect that he will, especially if the price remains constant for a while longer.

Here's an early white box that I don't think has been mentioned...
cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIte ... Track=true
The condition looks to be near mint, and there's an early Greyhawk with it. Could be a first (you could always hope.)
It's refreshing to see a good clean white box that is not an OCE.

I'm thinking the seller could use some free publicity to help with his price. :D

UPDATE Looks like our new Acaeum Ghost Tower of Inverness "friend" is now no longer a registered user:

:D  :lol:  :D  :lol:  :D  :lol:  :D

I'll sure bet Cougar is pissed. :wink:

WOW and just when I had thought I had seen everything 8O

Speaking of Freudian slips, maybe he was looking in the mirror when he left this post:

Thank you


Christ I mean, I have never had trouble getting laid, but I guess if I did, maybe I'd try searching Ebay for pheromone spray :?: :roll:

OCE, all five supplements + Chainmail:

cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&a ... 7&rd=1

The GDH looks dodgy at best, but considering what OCEs are going for lately, this isn't bad.

*counts posts* (well, at least mine ain't gonna get pushed out immediately by the new page, this time :roll:)

Possible Cthuluoid (mis-spelled) D&DG in possibly very nice condition (no picture) (!)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5167555576
No bids with $4.99 opening price and <3 days to go from a 7 day auction.

The seller's other auctions (especially the M&TAs) are a promising pointer, anyhow...
