Try PMing Paul Stormberg (The Collector's Trove).

Nice win!   :D


I was just going to suggest that, too.  Paul and I chatted about Chainmail variants while at the LGGC a few weeks ago:  I'm sure he'd appreciate additional confirmation if that's one of the versions that he's still tracking.

Nice win, Paul!  You scored your copy for about $12-15 less that I did mine :D

Heh, Fantasy Forest is different. My fiancee's sister has it, and I got to play it before. Neat little game for the very young, and a very good intro to Dungeon!

Nice win, especially with it being sealed.

Hamilcar had a absolute mint copy a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to grab it for my daughter but it got out of my price range.

Did anyone see the final price on that? I think it went for around $50

Not necessarily a "fun" find or that great a deal really :roll: , but a very satisfactory win vs another buyer who is much more carefree with his money than me :D . Please check out the bid history on this:




** expired eBay auction **




By the way, the question I asked was about 2 hours or less before the auction was supposed to end. I had completely forgotten to ask about item conditions and was not going to bid, especially due to propensity for "Mr. Fin" to usually bid high right before the auction ends. He has outbid me so many times that I have lost count and tend to walk away from items when I see his name listed :evil:



Hopefully I can mix & match with my prior set and make a minty complete set and re-sell the rest :wink: .

How on earth did you snipe with a 1 cent increment? I thought after $100, you had to bid at least $2.50 above the previous highest bid? And according to the time your bid was 1.5 hours after the previous highest bid????

If I remember correctly, the previous bid was sitting at about $96.00 and I did not want to bid more than 100, but I thought that the previous bidder may have set his bid at $100, so I bid $100.01 with less than 10 seconds left :D  & I guess that he was either not watching or was busy bidding on at least a dozen other items :wink: .
