Someone must have made an offer they couldn't refuse.


Hmmm, I was thinking the same thing........

Howdy,

Dungeons and Dragons Dice Lot | eBay

Never saw anything like it before. Anyone have any clue as to what it is?


It is a mini catalog. I have one from a colorforms set. Tlaks about T2a and T2b - The Temple of Elemetnal Evil.

I'll skip commenting on one or two of the other prices (sorry!), but just give a nod in case anyone is really badly wanting a stated-high grade 1st PHB.
As just listed; viewtopic.php?t=3398

(I'd guess that's only $15-20 over judging by the more recent prices: not that many have been in that stated grade. What d'ya think?).

Ran across this site. Guy is selling some cool ghq minis.

RitterKrieg

My group used to play micro armor way back in the day. Had the big sand table and everything. Some fun days.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Chuck Norris Facts |


A couple of my favorites:

Chuck Norris and Mr. T walked into a bar. The bar was instantly destroyed, as that level of awesome cannot be contained in one building.


Chuck Norris can hit you so hard that he can actually alter your DNA. Decades from now your descendants will occasionally clutch their heads and yell "What The Fuck was That?"


I have been laughing non-stop for the last 10 minutes. My head hurts now. :D


I like this one, too

Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.

Sticky-backed plastic, only a 3rd print (by far the most common) and with other faults.
Goes to show how few GW MMs still have their text block attached to the spine?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8766498233
$18 with 20 hours to go

(Hopefully that's not going to go too much higher!)

n.b. That's not a recommendation, hence the thread ;)
Just for ref/thoughts...


p.s. Oh, I almost forgot to re-check the PHB; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8762149715

What is the oldest gaming item you own?  Earliest printing...from the Elder Days...the Times Before.....       8O

   Mine is either an old copy of Greyhawk or one of the first Player's Handbooks ever sold.

I just ran across something from 1972 when I was resorting, but I can't remember off the top of my head what it was.

I have a beaten-up copy of Eldritch Wizardry.  I don't know if I'll sell it or just keep it for the cover.   :wink:

Actually, most of the needles had already decided to take themselves down some time ago.  What I actually removed was an elaborate collection of twigs.

If its any consolation to you John, my high school Spanish teacher had hers up for over 3 years.  Granted it was a fake one, but still. :wink:

Thank you for those words of comfort :D .  I managed to get to August about 3 years ago with an artificial tree.  And I thought it a sound argument that it was a pointless exercise taking it down at that point; being well over half way to next Christmas.  But all that I got was one of those "JFDI" looks :(

Neat. Who broke eBay? :)

"Page not responding", plus zero prices returned for all auctions on ebay.com via my sniping tool. (ebay.co.uk is OK).

The LOtA (Lords of the Ether Auction) are either going senile or they are in the midst of a massive reboot.  Don't people at Ebay know how badly we need our fix?

Why does every date on this website read as follows:

    Why?
