Bingo...and we all can now plainly see the decision making process at TSR.


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

Trail Map Folio for $19.99...

I dont know if that was a good price, but I wanted one for a long time, and have seen them sell for more.

I think that is about the right price for the Waterdeep trail map.  The Kara-Tur map should go for about the same amount.  The Eastern Countries and Western Countries trail maps for the Known World setting usually get higher prices.  No clue about the price amount for the Krynn trail map, which is the only one I dont have.  I have enough damn Dragonlance maps as it is.

My bi-annual trip to the Games Plus store auction a few weeks ago netted me a few things, but of note:

Polyhedron Magazines 20-32, and 44-138. All have their mailing covers except some issues in the mid 90's.

And the early Polyhedrons all have their modules in them (Bugbear Hunt, Needle, etc.)

I picked up this lot for $82.00
----------------------------------
The other interesting lot I picked up from the auction was a stack of Dungeon Magazines (sorry Bill... not Dragons...) 1-30.

However, there's some serious water damage to the first six or seven issues. But for $10.00, it was a good purchase.

Thanks to Troll and Toad for giving up on the Poly's   :)

I just picked up a used (but still in excellent condition) Rappan Athuk Reloaded for $10 + shipping (arrived today).  I have 3 copies now, maybe should start to think about selling one - but they look nice on the shelf :)

Also, in the midst of buying the contents of a game shop that closed not too long ago - I think that will solidify me as a reseller.

Wow! Fancy doubling your money for a quick turnaround?  :wink:
Where do you find stuff like this? There will be a lot of embarrassed people if that was on eBay.

I just got a couple good pickups on EBay.

1)  Gods Demi-Gods & Heroes, and Swords & Spells - both in seemingly very good shape, for $31 combined.  Seems like a fair deal.
2)  Dungeoneer's Survival Guide for $1. I realize it's not exactly a rare text, but still - can't go wrong for a buck!  :)

Dont suppose it had a loose 32 page booklet in it?

I don't know about the 32-page booklet.  I haven't received it yet.

What is the 32-page booklet?  Is that the combo-pack that TSR put out?

Just wondered if there was a copy of Dark & Hidden Ways with it. I bought a copy once and when it arrived it was tucked in at the back. Yes, it was a combo pack put out by TSR. I don't remember them being sold in the UK, so to find a copy over here was quite a find at the time.

Nothing too terribly exciting, I suppose, but I found a William the Conqueror and a Warlocks and Warriors in really nice shape recently.

I hear you, George. Picked up a couple of Birthright items for a buck each. Nothing like filling a hole in the collection on the cheap :)

This may seem like a little thing, but I finally collected all the Dragon Magazines I wanted today.  I finished off my collection with issue #26 and #40.




** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **




They are both complete and in beautiful condition.  The price was right too at $9.24 for both issues including shipping.  My collection starts with issue #9 which is the first appearance of Wormy and goes through to issue #250 with a few holes here and there.  Wormy was my favorite comic in Dragon and was the first thing I read with every issue.  When Wormy started sputtering out, my interest in Dragon wavered as well.  Like I said, it's a little victory dance, but a good feeling never the less.  :)

Two lots, one with seven Fantasy (War) Board Games in Bookcase Format and one lot with one RPG (EotPT)
Most of the are Avalon Hill, with other publishers mmixed in.

Dark Emperor (Two Sets)  (AH)
Dragon Pass (AH)
Elric (AH)
Wizards (AH)
Wizard Kings (Columbia Games)
Wizards Quest (AH)

And

Empire of the Petal Throne (TSR)

Had been trying to get Dragon Pass for a very long while and that lot included some other games I was intersted in, so it seemed like a good time to push it.

I just picked up a Tsojconth in just about mint condition in the ziploc bag from ebay. Its not the cheapest I have seen it go for, but I guess I could have done worse. It truly is in fantastic shape.
