Big 'thank you' to Alexander1968 for the Italian X3 that arrived this morning. What a nice guy - a pleasure to do a deal with.

Only question is - do I take the shrinkwrap off? I don't speak Italian but I'm kind of intrigued to see inside! CURSE you foul shrinkwrap!!!!

Thank you bclarkie for several private transactions and especially the last one. Items are always well described, promptly shipped and very, very well protected.  :D
It was not the first time, and it is always a pleasure!

BTW, my gratitude to Bombadil for previous transactions, great deals too  :D  I hope you great success with your SW OB3!

Merci les gars!

FYI, I received this email today from Noble Knight:

September 27, 2006
      
Hello everyone,

As you know we have always made service and selection our hallmark here at Noble Knight, but you also may have noticed that our recent updates have been smaller then usual. Well the story is that a few months ago I decided that we could be EVEN BETTER at these, but only if we had the best computer systems. Since then we've been undergoing a massive programming overhaul ranging from how we store inventory, to new website features, a new shipping system, and a new in house system for how we process orders and add inventory. All of this has been going on behind the scenes and we don't expect it to impact our warehouse service at all, only for the time being our ability to add out of print games to our site, and of course cash flow as the changes are very expensive (yes though we are definitely still buying games!).

This process has been overwhelming and progress on our new system has been going much slower then I would like (isn't that always the case). We will get there, but in the meantime we haven't been able to list as much out of print stuff as normal. Its been quite a few years since our last sale, and I couldn't find a better time to offer you our valued customers a great deal then now. I'd like to invite you to check out the 75,000 + games we have on our site. If you haven't browsed the lists in awhile, or there is an item you've been spying, now is the time...

EVERYTHING on the site, including brand new releases, rare games, regular used books and games, original artwork, and already discounted items is on sale, at least 10% off!

Want to save even MORE? If you've got a bigger budget, we will make the deal even sweeter:
Purchase $250+ and receive a $5 gift card off your next purchase
Purchase $500+ and receive a $10 gift card off your next purchase

As a thank you to our past customers and also those that purchase from us regularly, we WILL allow current trade credit on file for use during the sale, and also the sale will last for a total of 10 days so that you may purchase any new releases during this time at the sale price as they come in!

Fine Print
I'm sorry but we cannot retroactivelly apply this sale to previous or recent purchases, however as this is a customer appreciation sale if you have placed an order within the last few days let me know and I will apply some bonus credit to your account.
Bonus gift cards will be issued as trade credit to your online account, useable at any time, shortly after your purchase, or 2 years from now, whenever you would like. This is a manual process so please give us at least a few hours to apply them.
You may use gift certificates, but not purchase them at a sale price.
All payments must be received within 5 days of the conclusion of the sale for sale prices to be met.
If you prefer to place your order via phone or mail, please mention the sale to qualify.
If you purchase from us regularly and cannot take advantage of the sale now, I may not be able to give you 10% off but I'll do something for you off your next order, just mention after you order "hey I'm a regular and I missed the sale!" within the next 30 days.

The sale will run from today, Wednesday until Friday October 6th.

Thanks again to everyone for making this business so much fun to run and for being an NKG customer. We cannot afford to sell at these prices all the time so I hope you find some great values. Game on!

Best Regards,
Aaron Leeder

I have ordered from them twice this year & everything went perfectly. Fast shipping and they use the best stiff cardboard mailers that I have seen.

Just received a really cool item from Al (killjoy):  the original, hand-drawn map from Rob Kuntz's Cairn of the Skeleton King.  

Very nice, Al & Rob.  Thanks!

Any chance of getting a note or certificate from Rob to verify its authenticity?

Yup, it's the small time collector here, just stopping by to raise a glass to Shane G (Plaag) for selling me a wonderful Eldritch Wizardry and - even more importantly - being wonderful about selling me said book. Cheers!

Many thanks to The Collector's Trove for buying the set of Dragonchess boards I've been trying to get rid of for so long.

I hope to see Paul post some pics of them here once he's got them set up and configured with minis!

I bought some modules from Stephen and the transaction went very smoothly.  He did a fantastic job packaging them.  I think I could have played football with the box and the modules wouldn't have gotten as much as a crease.

Being a Greyhawk fan I just could not pass them up - even though I don't play chess - at all. :P

However, I have looked up the rules for Dragonchess and I am assembling the miniatures for painting. I had remembered the variety of creatures incorrectly as well as the color of each side. Should make for an interesting challenge to get them painted up in a interesting fashion while keeping true to the dual-color scheme. Blackmoor, does your wife want to do some contract painting work for publicity? :)

I plan to play a game against Gary - and get my butt kicked - at the next LGGC. Lotsa' pics and stories from that to be sure!

Anyhow, thanks again Stephen, and tell your wife the boards are great! Maybe she'll get an order or two from my playing it at LGGC?


Futures Bright,

Paul

That would be great, but I already asked if she'd make more and she said no way in hell.  Well, maybe after enough time has passed...

Wow, I can't tell you how cool it would be to know that you played Gary on the boards my wife made.  If that's your plan, then definitely send us some pics.  (I can just hear her now:  "Gary who?")

This board is for all types of collectors :)   Small and big.  No labels are required just have fun re-living long past experiences through collecting.

Have a great day.


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!
