No problem.... I saw it a few days ago and thought I'd bid if it stayed cheap (that way I could keep one copy mint, and maybe run some lions through their paces with the other).

Worth $10 just to read the rules IMO.

Regards

*lol*

Hmm... I thought I remembered a few creases on that previous one. Was I wrong 'bout that?

Yeah, that was the idea.
Gameplay is stated to be a bit skewy, but would certainly "stand out from the crowd" (;)) of other items around here.

Wow, maybe I should riot, or at least withdraw my ambassador.   :roll:

*g*. Yup, neat cartoon cover, too; http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/41346 :)




    Everyone is too worried about everyone else's sensitivities.  I thought this game was funny when it came out and I still do.  Ironic that anyone might find it offensive, since it is about how Christianity heroically prevailed against persecution.  There was a pretty good Gary Larson, Far Side cartoon that showed Christians and lions checking out the signup sheet for their matches.     8)

I don't think I've ever really been concerned about other's sensitivities. I don't give a rat's ass if someone wants to whine about it being offensive. Phuq 'em. I think it's hilarious.

   Sounds like a good quest for a tournament module!   8)

     Chalice Quest

    The Chalice of Gamer's Desire

    Something like that.   :)

Well, Frank has two so maybe he'll be open to auctioning one in the near future with his new eBay selling account.   :wink:

Original cover art to C2 Ghost tower. Keep it at my desk and look at her often.

For me, it would have to be my original DM's screen. I DM'ed the same group of guys through junior high and high school, through a ton of adventures over countless weekends and I used same screens for it all.

About a year ago, a couple of these old friends and I played again for the first time in about a decade. They lugged their books to my place and we stared setting up at the dinner table. I put the screens up and they gave me this odd look. "Dude, the screens are backward - that one has to be facing me."

I dug that.

Went through the closet for spring cleaing and donations to Purple Heart. And in the back with my old Gencon T-shirts (that my wife begs me to throw away every year) is the T-Shirt I got for first place in the 1984 Zef (Fez) Deathstorm AD&D Tournament. It is a size small - all they had left by the time I got to the winners announcement. If I ever figure out how to use photobucket, I will post a picture.


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

I suppose my "crown jewels" are the things left over from the days when I used to play.  The items in questions are the modules that I designed and wrote myself.

On the commercial side, the most memorable piece is the book that started the collecting frenzy (and the money sink)- a first print D&D from e-bay, for about $20.
