AC8 Revenge of Rusak is actually labeled "AC3" on the cover.  Apparently, someone at TSR forgot that the AC3 code was already taken by AC3 Kidnapping of Princess Arelina.  In an attempt to correct this mistake, later copies of Revenge have a sticker stating "AC5, All New Dragon Tiles II" (which is also incorrect!).  The contents are identical to non-stickered copies.  The Magic Encyclopedia correctly lists this item as AC8.  (Thanks to Ken Wellens for this info).


Edit. Figured I would just replace my wording with the site's text.

Oh...and four members here have these in their stores.  Beyondthebreach, blackmoor, intelligator, and Badmike...who has a sw copy with the AC5 sticker.

Valuable?  No.

But interesting and collectable, sure.   :D

I've been looking for one of the AC5/AC3's to buy; it is the only one of the AC series I don't have.

Surprised the 2nd woody didn't go for more, though:

The auction erroneously states that it is a 4th in Mint condition.  Were either/both of those statements true, and the reference sheets included, the price wouldn't be too far off the mark.  Unfortunately, it's clearly not Mint (maybe F/VF, hard to tell conclusively from those photos but there's some fairly obvious smudges.)  And not complete without the ref sheets.

I figure the GH is the other $35.

Bad timing from my perspective.  This one is in low enough condition for me to have put in a bid, and for once I had a pot of money accumulated -- but my wife brought home a $1700 tax bill.  :evil:

Wives are a $5,000 deduction on taxes. Keep that in mind.

Yes, pleasantly surprised by those!

That was a tough one to grade, but happy I exceeded the reserve.  These help offset the other 2nd print nicely.



Sorry Alexander, nothing personal.  I don't have a comfort level with the shipping to Italy thing yet, maybe next time.  I'll have to consult some folks here on their experiences.

I've had no problems, course its bloody expensive..but with new rates going to take effect I'm curious to see if things are cheaper (plus faster since airmail is going away).

Always interesting to see how much Wayne's World of Books likes to mark up books for resale - even when they aren't in very good condition.



Originally purchased from bclarkie for $7.49:

Now for sale for $39.99:

Also shows how ridiculous amazon.com prices are since Wayne's in the cheapest.

Using certified mail is a sure way to make things arrive there. I always ask for it for valuable items (not simply from a moneymaking pint of view...).
