Brian, if you make the trip out to State College, there were several hobby/game/used book stores there when I attended Penn State from '87-'91.  

The Philly/DE/NYC corridor has had a lot of good gaming stores, though back in the day, I bought most of my D&D books at either the local indie book store, or at an Allied Hobbies, or Complete Strategist.  Le sigh...

Allan, you went to Penn State? Me too, for a year at least. :wink: My older sister actually graduated from PSU in 1992 also. State College is one my favorite places in the world. Stephen (aka afoolandhis$) actually lives in State College right now. I am going to try and make a journey up there this fall to go see a football game, because I have been up there for a few years now, but is about a 3 hour trip from here. Hmmm, small world....

Sadly Williamsport is about a 4 hour drive away from me. :cry:

BTW, Nice Sale:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

Especially considering the BIN on it was originaly $65.00. :wink:


To be fair, the BIN was actually $90.00 ( I wouldn't want the buyer to feel too bad if they are reading this - $100 isn't too unreasonable in the hopes that it would stay low).

(Of course, if I posted how I won this on eBay . . . .  8)   but then again, I spend a LOT of time searching auctions . . . )
