All sorts of alarm bells should be ringing, but hey, life's a risk!!
I would imagine that he has answered more than one question, regarding inspection of the items and/or possibility of personal collection (the ultimate way to not get ripped off 8O ).
Bottom line is that this auction will probably go for slightly less than it might be expected to, mainly because if the zero feedback issue. (And a good chance it will go to a member here?)


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

If I had the money, I'd be bidding. Not worth doing it if there's no risk.

If you had the money then there'd be no risk. Besides if you pay with a credit card you are pretty safe from being defrauded on ebay.

The price seems pretty high, but if anybody is interested they can download a pdf of the manual from here:

No and no.  Now if you find one with the manual and the box in great condition that is a different matter entirely.  And unlike the actual RPG, this game is not very fun to play IMHO.

Doesn't anyone else see something odd about this auction? Not only does the seller have a zero feedback rating, but they have been a member since 2003 and talk about offering another gem from their collection in the auction. Anytime I see a 0 feedback from a longtime member, I wonder what they have been doing all those years. I would rather a 0 rating be a newer member. It just makes more sense. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I would not touch this auction with a 10' wooden pole. -Tom

cb3230 is the sellers ID on E-Bay. I have been bidding on both of his RPG listings.

Here is my question to him regarding his Zero Feedback.
I have a question about your E-Bay account. It is 4 years old with NO feedback at all. That seems very strange. I had noted the zero feedback rating before bidding but not the age of your account until a friend later pointed that out to me. Regards, Aneoth aka John

Chuck (the seller) sent me the following reply about that subject (Zero Feedback plus old e-bay account).
Your the first person to ask this.
6 years ago, My wife and I set up a business doing customized embroidery. We thought we would need an Ebay account for some of our work. We found that we didn't need it and stuck to doing local work. We basically forgot about this account.
Now I find I'm getting rid of a closet full of game stuff that just gathers dust and I don't play. I remembered that this was still out here, so I started using it. It seems ebay never closes old accounts out.
Everyone out here seems to have some Ebay based business. The last thing I purchased on ebay was over 4 years ago. So I don't have any history out here. What is even odder is that I do very high-end web-based business software and all my geek friends think its funny that I'm not "on-the-web" more. I don't even have a personal web site. I guess since this is what I do all day long that I don't what to do it all night long.
Chuck.
P.S. If you want to see my pic, my boss made me put on his catalog site. www.alpscontrols.com I'm the goofy drummer at the bottom of the page. Enjoy.


I went to the site he indicated at the bottom of his reply, but since I did not wish to join, I was not able to view his goofy drummer pic.........  :roll:

Regardless, I was convinced by his reply and shall continue to bid on both of his RPG auction listings. Whether I win or not is obviously up in the air, but the fact that he wont accept any non-US bidders helps tremendously. (Sorry al {Killjoy}, et al) :(

If I win and if I actually get the items, then I shall entertain secondary offers for some of the items and/or place them back on E-Bay for re-sale. I am trying to re-build my currently almost empty collection so relatively larger lots such as this one may help with overall costs, since I can re-sell some of the items to recoup some of the costs. My available spendable funds are nothing like they were a few years ago, and costs for many items have risen to the point of making many rares almost unreachable for me now, so saving money is a very good thing.

This aint another one of the members of the Acaeums goofy trick listings is it? :?   This aint April guys...........

I remember it. It's basically "hunt the wumpus" - an old fashioned computer game which has been redone many times.

D&D Cartoon Show Book : Backward Magic




** expired eBay auction **




I have not seen this before. I'm sure $60 is way overpriced, but what is it worth. How many of these were published?
