Pages 27 and 28. It's not spelled out, unfortunately, you have to glean the whole process from various definitions and examples...

It's in new condition, read but never used. The dice are still in the little baggy. It's a really cool set, as some here have already written. Highly reminiscent of the OD&D whitey.



Inside the U.S., I'll ship it for free. Outside the U.S., I might have to ask you to help with shipping, or cover it entirely.



How shall we decide who gets it? I want to give it to someone who will use it, or at least read it and keep it. I don't want to give it to someone who just wants to sell it.



-Stephen




I read just about everything I actually decide to get my hands on.



I've been trying to decide on this one.  If you sent it to me, I'd read it.  If you autographed it, I'd keep it.  With two exceptions, going into the auction Paul is about to start for me, I've kept everything that I've gotten that was autographed.


Regards,



Stephen

Surprisingly enough, we have the perfect chance for a contest for this item. :P We should base it on BTB Pharoah auction:



viewtopic.php?p=38965#38965



I think that we should have a contest to see who gets closed to the actual bid, just like the last OB3 auction. The closest to the actual final bid should get the C&C Box Set.    Any thoughts?



BTW, please do not let this discourage any other possible bets to take place on this particular auction either. :twisted:

I've been looking for my Christmas present. :D


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

I don't know if that's fair -- the closest to the actual final bid should get the Pharoah, assuming they pay up...  :lol:

Are auction participants excluded?


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Right.  We need to take that into consideration.  How about if we say you have to vote before you place your bid.  Moreover, let's say we'll close the voting Sunday evening, well ahead of the end of the auction.



What does everyone think of that?  Fair enough?

Works for me. :)  



Anyone else want to put something up or should we just vie for the box set?
