well, after 5 months (five!!! five... unbelievable... tnx to POSTE ITALIANE and the maaaagic italian custom duty!) i got the parcel! i found in it 3 additional modules for boot hill: HB1, HB2 and HB4... are they somehow uncommon? (iirc HB1 pops up quite often but the remaining two i dont remember to have seen them frequently)




Pretty good for $10, aia.

Well, I paid way too much, but I've really been wanting the pastel modules, and this auction had all 12 of them, so I figured I'd pay for the convenience.

I'm just glad you quit when you did!  My max bid was $350... :oops:
I've been wanting the monochromes since I sold mine 3 years ago, and I hated the idea of tracking them down 1 at a time and waiting forever.  I figured it was worth an extra $100 or so for me to just get them all at once.

It's a nice set. I had it priced out at $200ish in VF condition. (Since there weren't any pictures) So I think you did pay a $100 premium to get everything at once. I wouldn't want to gather them 1 at a time either. *shiver* Good score!  :D

That's what I'm in the middle of atm.  I did happen to get a nice set of D-1, D-2 and D-3 all together.  Unfortunately the seller forgot to mention they smell like an ash tray.  Good thing I bag everything, lol.

Eww. Nice false advertising eh?
Fine print: My dog chewed the covers, I used part of the interior as a set of coasters, my roomie used the maps for rolling papers, and about half have coffee stains.

There was a thread here not so long ago about removing cigarette smell - I think placing said items in a sealed box with some activated charcoal (which is pretty easy to get) should do the trick (after about a week or two), followed by a good airing.  :D

$35 for a 30-sided???   What was it--unusual material, size of the die, both?

Managed to pick up a complete set of Aussie D1-3 & G1-3 monochromes. Excellent condition.

Very happy, though they didn't come cheap. :)

Yeah, I have a 30-sided around here somewhere. Think I could get $35 for it? It's the special temperature-sensitive, glow kind..  :lol:
