Well, ebay france, probably not highly interesting for you, but look at the last 20 minutes of the bid history...

It was a great "mano a mano" -if you use this italian expression, but I am sure you will unterstand   :wink:

Condition (Good, not better).

This french module is a combination of DL3, DL4 + DL5.

I know that Avalon Hill's Dune is a popular game, but this is really getting up there in terms of price:

Wow, that's one of the higher Dune results I've ever seen, especially for the "Sting" version.* Also, according to the description, the game is not 100-percent unpunched.

Man, it's results like this one and the recent rash of hela-high prices for the Dwarfstar games (these have been mentioned in some other threads) that have me wanting to do another round of eBay sell-offs. Hell, my copy of Dune is much nicer than that one! :)

+++++

*In talking with Peter Olotka, one of the designers of the game, it's become very clear to me that practically no one involved thought the "Sting" cover was a good idea. Well, no one except the muckety-mucks at Avalon Hill ...

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

That is that guy who posted here a few months ago asking people what they though he should put as prices on the stuff in his store.  Everyone who posted a response was pretty much of the concesus that on a shrinkwrapped Mentzer Basic set that he he should put a price of ~£10 at the most.  His response was essentially, "Thanks for all the help guys. Based on all of your responses, I think that I will put it in my store for £35."  :?  I guess he finally figured out that no one wanted to buy it for £35 so he graciously lowered the price to £30.  What a moron. :roll:

Actually, I was partially wrong, here is the thread right here:

viewtopic.php?t=4828

It seems that he finally decided on £20 after everyone respnses.  Since it didn't sell at all much, he decided to actually raise the price. :?  Interesting strategy there....

Here is "doozy": 8O  :roll:  8O



http://cgi.ebay.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Mo ... 0081749377



Does it come gold-plated or maybe it will be hand delivered or signed by E. Gary Gygax himself.



BTW, doesn't his last name, Gygax, sound just like a D&D character name. Of course I like to use the name Ernest  :wink:  (That is his first name, right?)


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

Wow. I have seen a few go for $110 or so, but never this high.

Plenty of underbidders there, too. :)



More has been asked, but those have tended to go to offers.

Yet, when you look up red_bus's ID through Ebay you can still see everything.   :?

Beats me, Mike... we seem to be the trial-zone for goodness knows how many half-assed ideas that eBay comes up with.

Presuming you can see the same "partially hidden" userID that I can, you've gotta admit that's in no way "anonymous", either. :D
