I have a theory on Fazzle. Up until Lumberjack started selling them, they were arguably the rarest tourney mods out there. My guess is that he scooped up unused/unsold ones at the convention and held on to them. I'd guess he has at least 5.

Was that the 3rd or 4th copy he sold?

According to my notes, monsieur jacques has, over the last 20 months or so, sold: three Quest for the Fazzlewoods (Dec 05, Feb 07, March 07) and four Lost Caverns of Tsojconth (Aug 05, Dec 05, Aug 06, Dec 06).  I have omitted final sale prices and the names of the winners in case people here (and it is mostly here  :D  ) don't want that posted again.  Also, if I am missing one, someone please do let me know.

I assume that if he only had one or two of each left he would say so (as this would likely increase the bidding), thus, since he doesn't, then he has more.  Alternatively, he may simply be quite a private person.

I won't comment on the photocopying comment, I simply hope it isn't true. However, I will say the reasons given are one reason I would NEVER bid on either of the items mentioned here (Fazzle and Tsojonth), or even ST1 for that matter (if what Killjoy says there is some brit sitting on 15 copies...).  No one REALLY knows how many there are out there, and for all any of us know Lumber could be sitting on a box of 50 or so.  Seriously. As a matter of fact the more he is sitting on, the less it would personally benefit him to ever let anyone know the total of that cache.  I would think the LESS he had, the more open he might be about how many he has ("Hey, guys, only TWO left, better bid now!!!") so he could stoke interest.  The simple fact he has remained very circumspect about this leads me to believe he may have quite a few squirreled away.  I guess only time will tell, but someday when he's selling Fazzle or Tso for the 25th time.....

That's been mentioned a bunch of times.  We don't, but a few people on here have vouched for him and/or stated the copy they received appeared to be genuine.

Now, if somebody that already owns one of these tourneys from another source purchased one of Lumberjacques' copies and compares them directly, we could be certain.  That's unlikely to happen, I'd think.

Someday the pdfs/copies of all these rares (ST1, Tso, Fazzle, etc) are going to be out...if not legally, then some other way. It's inevitable.  Hell, WOTC could decide tomorrow to release them for no particular reason. I don't think the price will go down to $5, but it will substantially decrease. It's a very bad business decision to sit on that many...but collectors are an odd sort...!

He sold two of each to Troll and Toad!!  I bet he has over 10 copies of each left!  Still that being said there is still enough people collecting to keep the price high, I am sure the market would soak them up and prices would rise.  10 copies to the world is still a very limited amount 8O

He was on the MDG staff back then and certainly had the opportunity to grab a bunch of them. Or more likely, they simply gave the extras to hold onto to sell at the next convetion. And since no one was buying these things back then, they collected dust.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

To confirm, it was the 3rd known copy he has sold on eBay.  I wouldn't say that the price on these will go down dramatically any time soon.  After all, only about nine copies have been sold since 2000.  Compare that to about ten Tamoachan's and thirty Tsojconth's!

Ok, there is nothing interesting about this auction except for the description. I about fell off the chair in complete disgust when this guy decided to use/create the "d10" system...



Are you f...ing kidding me. It has been said before...Get your D20 out of my game!!!

Don't waste your money.  I picked one up at full price when it was released thinking it was going to be the definitive book about D&D...it wasn't by a long shot.  I believe my rant about the book lasted a couple of pages on a particular thread a couple of years ago.  If you really want one you should be able to pick one up for about $10 in a used book store.

Anyone have an Aquarius Computer and Game system growing up?  I wonder if this game is the same as one of the intellivision ones.
