The listing is still hilarious though  .... 'in good condition but for the cutout on the cover' ... cracks me up.

I hope that if any of you run out on your wife or husband that you at least keep some of your priorities straight...like taking your gaming books WITH you

:lol:



During his teenage years, my former husband spent all his money on D&D books, modules, and boxed sets.  He was an avid gamer well into our marriage, but when he took off for Parts Unknown, he left his treasured D&D stuff with me.  I don't game anymore, and I need the shelf space for my own books, which is to say that I'm not a big seller who makes a living from eBay.  I'm just an ex-gamer's ex-wife trying to clear out some room and make a little money for vet bills for her dogs and cats and Christmas presents for her nieces and nephew.

Sheaaaah, right...valuable  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:



Just want it to go to a good home...
I guess some water or moisture seeped into the box that stored this stuff, since some materials show mold or damage due to water. That's why I start this at $0.99 when it's clearly more valuable.

Yeah, but he says at the bottom:

I will ship anywhere worldwide at actual USPS + packaging cost. Shipping cost shown will vary according to location. Again, shipping will be charged on actual cost (not looking for profit on s & h!!).


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

I'm guilty of them myself on occasion, but never could resist a good typo. (If this auction belongs to someone here, you can always make fun of me later and we'll call it even...  :D  )

Look out for those beat-up modules lurking in the musty boxes at your local thrift shop...they can be deadly. But the nicely kept accessories you find at your local game shop or HPB will smile down upon you from your bookshelf.

Doesn't matter, it's a fine listing, just found the typo a little silly. As I said in my original post, I've made the same mistake myself on occasion! Not a biggie, but worth a friendly chuckle.

I have gone back a couple of times, looking for the typo.  I can't see it.  :?

Dunno if I'm being directed to the proper auction, but...

"The Tome of Horrors (WW8387)"
"A FOLIO OF FINDS MALEVOLENT AND BENIGN"
"PERFECT addition to any Roleplayer Collector"

Yes, you too can find and collect roleplayers, malevolent and benign.

Ok, so my sense of humor is not as witty as I may have thought.

Next post, please...

In an advertising for D&D....


** expired eBay auction **




Something have shattered my whole life!! Did you notice this?



seller wrote:
Win this item and I will post it special delivery one day before the Royal Mail deadline!

Steve Jackson invented Dungeons and Dragons in 1974 and created a new genre of gaming: fantasy role playing which involved interaction, and the creation of on-the-fly rules by a 'Dungeon Master'.  

He opened his UK shop that year at 97 Uxbridge Road, london W12.

This is an original advertising flyer for the game with a decription of the game by Steve Jackson himself.




So during alllll these years... I was wrong!!!!???

Gee, you'd think the fact that the author's names of Gygax and Arneson appear on the book covers, not Steve Jackson's, would be a tip off. I wonder if the seller can read english. Oh, wait. The listing is in english...

You could explain the difference between Steve Jackson (UK) and Steve Jackson (US) and then watch his head explode.  :)
