There's been a lot of wink-wink, nudge-nudge lately with whoever this obiter is ... and his posts are very OTT, so it seems like something's going on.

Whatever. On to something else ...

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?
