Neither do I. Honestly, I can't even believe it's being discussed.

We're looking at a big threadjack here, and maybe the debate could be taken to a new thread or a poll or something, but I'll add a final thought before I close: just because an Acaeum member "has their eye" on a potential good find does not make them special. Nor does it make the rest of us mind-readers.

This thread has actually gotten better, IMO. Not all of the 770-plus members here are big-ticket or bucks-up collectors — speaking for us mere mortals, if someone spots a boxed set for $8 or a super-module languishing for some reason at $5, that is news I am interested in.

(Okay, that was two final thoughts, technically ...)

Possible TSR Hex Sheets, however, I don't see the TSR wizard on them, so perhaps they're something else and/or more generic hex sheets???:

Interesting feedback, though — I don't think I've ever seen so many neutrals. There's seven in the past year, versus no negatives at all ... that sort of ratio is pretty odd (says the compulsive feedback-checker).

I don't have time to browse & search as much as I want to.

Thank you, Marlith.

Don't be put off by bclarkie, he gets a bit tweaked when other people get good deals.  :lol:


No I get tweaked by people who like to play both sides of the fence. One day they complain about how there isn't any sense of community any more and then the next day they  say the exact opposite and f**k em for complaining about people losing the possiblity of a good deal. :roll:

BINGO! Its very frustrating when one spends a lot of time trying to find good deals only to have someone "per se" rat them out on a regular basis.  I am sorry for the fact that I prefer not to get into bidding wars every freakin day on every item no matter how common or mundane it is if I don't have too, but hey maybe its just me.  :?

I just wanted to stir up the pot a bit. We haven't had any good flame wars here in a while.
Personally, I don't get into bidding wars. I set a snipe for the max I would pay for an item. If I lose, I still sleep well at night. There will be another one. And another. And yet another.


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

Seller has some older Dragons #4,6,9,12 and then some later ones in bulk auctions. Only a feedback score of 1 though so it might be a crap shoot....

To be clear, I wasn't referring specifically to your most recent posts.  However, there did seem to be a large number of them, so maybe there is an issue there.  (I didn't actually look at all of them, who has that kind of time?)  :lol:

As someone ask me to combine postings I will try as much as I remember to....

What's that I see out of the corner of my eye? ... it's a ... a ... a cougar!! And it's bidding on that H1! And it wants it to be shipped in an M-bag!

+++++

I can't believe Diamond Dave has missed this one ... it's in much better condition than the tattered H1s he usually deals in.

Cougie's bids
