I can confirm that there is no joke that I know of.  I was just letting Marlith know who he is. :)   His posts so far have been a bit off, but he seems like an okay guy to me through my dealings with him.  He seems to know mr r _bus pretty well so maybe he can share.

Sometimes, the winks, nudges, acronyms and obscure references can be confusing.

That's very interesting, since I have a spare copy in mint condition and still in the box which I'll sell sooner or later.

think on the back of that sale, it might not be such a bad time now!!



mind you, noting that it was two NIL feedback buyers duking it out, could be just one of the odd-spikes that pops up from time-to-time.

The winning bidder is legit though.  I think he is in the business of selling boardgames of all sorts.

Time to auction it off while you have a hot audience...try emailing the losers to let them know it's up...maybe even a buy-it-now offer?

I sold the same item complete with the only defect being a sahuagin replaced one missing orc (all unpainted, unprimed), and it sold for about $13.  



If the box only sells for even $9.99 then I'm a horse's patoot...

(Personally I'm no particular of fan of that "high-contrast" style, either, even though the amount of work in there is clear to see.... :)).

Unfortunately work and personal life takes priority over my time here ... so consider yourself lucky  :twisted:

Having said that looking at the amount you have been squandering on collecting leads me to believe either:

a. you have had a pay increase
b. a rich uncle has left you an inheritence
c. your credit cards are about to explode and we will soon see you on the news being chased across europe clutching rare manuscripts and white boxes

:wink:

Definitely so. Thanks for the confirmation and good to see you back, Mike.

Option c. it is. :?
*gets out butterfly net, in preparation for the big-bang*

Time to .pdf 'em and flog the originals to you for a 50% markup. :twisted: :P
That was a joke, btw, despite being a reiteration of a valid point... but then, you knew that already, Mike.
