The first handheld electronic game that I ever owned was Merlin.

Loads of fun at the time! I think it is still in a box in the attic.

I think so and very hard to find as well; however, living in the Deep South I prefer General Lee's Githzerai cavalry.  :wink:

I particularly like the, "although the art is a bit "archaic" looking, it just adds to the fact of how rare and vintage this actually is"

Ah, thanks, King. I try to liven things up when I can, since my descriptions are so bland.

"Largest Collection of D&D Items Ever Offered" says the seller.

That's fine, I suppose ... although it would be more accurate to add on "... Today, Anyway" at the end.  8)

Axe of the Dwarvish Lords




** expired eBay auction **




Hard to beat the mission statement from this seller....



"I was born a Texan and Raised a Redneck. We like everything bigger here in Texas. With that in mind, I intend to pass the biggest bargains, and the best savings, on to you - with deals that just can't be beat. That's the way it should be."

You know, there are some of us who have lived our entire lives in Texas without drinking moonshine, dipping chewing tabacco, banging a heifer (human or otherwise), saying "Yeeeehaw!", or wearing a ten gallon hat but you'd never guess it from this clown. Sheesh!

Hmmm. I've done all that and I live in Cow Hampshire. Well, except wearing a ten-gallon hat. I have standards.

Sorry Mike, but being from Mississippi and living in Alabama we can only aspire to such greatness.  You guys are so lucky to have scored with heifers; we only ever had sows (and not the human kind.)  :wink:
