I can.



4 piss-poor condition D&D books and a piss-poor copy of a 2nd Ed Monster Manual binder (with monsters), AND a fancy Rebok bag for $200AU.



I'm suprised there aren't more bidders on this hot item...

think I've found someone who rivals TrollToadies descriptions...

Just looked up a rare(ish) board game that I am after and found the description listed as being in 'Good' condition, but "not all parts are guaranteed to be present and is sold as seen"... the only picture of which is a photo of the outside of the box....  :roll:

This seller is geeking out a bit too much in the description.  What is he talking about?

Sure, but it's better than the HUGE LOT listings we see... all of which have about five items.

I don't know, with GenCon coming up, maybe this wouldn't be such a bad idea.

Isn't Gygax's name on the book anyway?

Only in the fine print ("This work is derivitive of ... by Gary Gygax and others").

"All the books are in fairly good condition"



** expired eBay auction **


Are you absolutely sure?

but they are old and may be wrinkled, scuffed or marked inside with pencil.


Oh, ok.

The photos show the condition better than I can describe it.
