Okay, here's how it works-



We're betting on the final sale price for BTB's Pharaoh auction:



http://cgi.ebay.com/PHARAOH-DAYSTAR-WES ... dZViewItem



The one who comes closest to the actual price wins my Castles & Crusades Collector's Box set viewtopic.php?t=3051&start=0



PLUS, the one who comes in second wins my copy of "The Universal Fantasy Supplement", by Clint Bigglestone, copyright 1978 by The Fantasy Factory. If you don't already know about it, it's a cool little digest-size guide to fantasy miniatures wargaming.



Rules are as follows:



You have to lodge your bet by midnight EST this Sunday. After that, the betting is closed.



Good luck!

Ok, I am in. I will say $855.00, and no that is not my bid. :)



BTW, we need some sort of leeway like last time. Say like no one can bid within $25.00 of anyone else. What do you think?

Okay, $25 increments.  And let's say you can change your bet until the betting closes at midnight Sunday.

Sounds good.  Are you going to allow non-Us residents in this one, or just US folks only.

This is for everyone, but if the shipping overseas costs more than $8.00, I might have the winner chip in.

Hey that is too close to my bid. :o  There is a $25.00 leeway to be given to all participants. :wink:
