The opener: Having survived the past 25 years MIP.....

I hope I didn't give amyone to much of a heart attack but honestly, it's worth much more to me watching them open them then it is sitting on my shelf being oogled. For my oldests B-day he'll be getting 4 or 5 of the B series in shrink plus some X's. Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did...felt like 1981 all over again.... :D

The loss of Shrinkwrap to the young is no loss at all.  Looks like a very merry xmas.

Good for you and the kids.  It's deja vu all over again.  
Shrinkwrap is so highly overrated.  I have a lot of items in the shrink because I bought them that way and never bothered to read them.  I can't imagine paying such a high premium for them today.

They'll kill you for that when they're older :p

Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

That is absolutely beautiful!  (Trying not to tear up  :oops: ).  I think almost all of our gaming experiences must have started something like that...though for me it was a bright red box, and my brother got the expert set.  Finally a use for shrinkwrap!

Since I started on Mentzer, my kids won't be as hard to find for...I hope.  8O

Man, that is just the coolest.  I hope your sons look back upon that with fond memories when they're grown men.  Maybe you've set them on THE trajectory.

Well done!
