He's gotta be a liar.  I don't know any wargamers that go to the gym.  :wink:

Come to think of it....I don't know any wargamers.

I'll bet you never knew the "G" in "GK" stands for Guidon:




** expired eBay auction **




When Guidon ceased business, Gygax published the game under the banner of his company, Tactical Studies Rules - also known as TSR. For a time, TSR used the original Guidon stock which explains the "GK" logo on the box and rule books along with the Tactical Studies Rules data.

Glad I am not the only one to have thought that right off.
I almost said something similar in my post.

I have a Deities & Demigods that was in similar condition.  The covers were absolutely trashed, but I didn't want to toss the book.  I separated the interior pages, printed out "good" scans of the front and rear covers, and coily-bound the whole thing together.  It took a little bit of time, but at least I have a copy with the Finnish Mythos.  Oh, yeah, and the Cthulhu Mythos.

I'm not sure what a "homemade stick" is, since, unfortunately, it's not pictured.



At that price, it must be something really cool, though!

It is also spelled "homeade stick" in the description. Maybe it is a beverage for ladies of the night?

Humorous history and drama of a DMG ... I don't know about the price, maybe about $.98 too high?

"Two previous owners felt the need to sign their names to the inside front cover of the book. While Robin S. did so neatly in the upper corner, her successor, Mike K., not only felt the need to scrawl his name across the entire page but also to disparage Robin S. in the process. This bit of juvenile drama may be tied in some way to the near-loss of this book in the Great Big Gulp Deluge, though I cannot attest to this with any certainty."



Love that...   :lol:

Why would you need to carefully pack this for shipping?
