Well I just got one of my most wanted.  Dwarven Glory 1st print



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... :IT&ih=018



It was from our Freinds at Toad & Troll.  Unbelievable price I might add :)



He also included an Official Fonarow Collection certificate of Authenticty, apparently a famous collection I nver heard of :?



Considering the last DG 1st went for $1500+(IRRC)  I got a kick ass deal 8)



It is in perfect condition :D

Well, I for one am glad you got it and it was in superb condition.  Frankly I think buying from T&T is a crapshoot based on what I have heard.  Maybe not as bad as some other resellers but bad enough I would rather look elsewhere.



Never heard of Ken Fonarow?  Besides his collection that he sold to T&T recently, I am pretty sure that he had been running the Gen Con auctions for awhile up until last year when T&T took over.  I have bought several things from him off Ebay over the years.  He went by the handle weekendwarrior and obviously http://www.weekendwarrior.com is his website.  Real nice guy.

Damnit, I'd trade some of my wife's looks for just one phone call like this:

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Other than T&T's pricing I've never had any problems with them. I've bought a number of their much less expensive items and always found the condition exactly as described.

They may suck, but that DG was an absolute steal.

It was a steal, I even paid for overnight shipping just to make sure it was real.   :)

Question is now what :?:   It was one of the last items I needed.  It may be years before I pick up a first chainmail or incredibly rare Doomsday book :?

You'd do quite a bit of damage to your hand if you used it.

Bah...if I didnt know any better, I'd say Canadian beer is made with bear piss.  Which means it is slightly better than American beer, which is made with horse piss.  :puker:

The only people on the planet that make better beer than the Germans are the Belgians....in my not-so-humble opinion.  :twisted:   The Canadians make a pretty decent whiskey though.  :wink:   And bacon....cant forget that.  :D

I'm not certain how rare and/or collectible this Warlocks and Warriors boardgame is... but it sure looks like a  'fun find' to me.  I have 4- and 6- year-old gamers-to-be that I 'm looking forward to playing this one with  :)

Any other introduction-to-rpgs/fantasy games you've played with youngsters?
