The photos show some Fast Forward Games products, and those are slooow sellers.  I paid $0.99 apiece for the past three that I have bought through eBay sellers.  The retail on those were probably $20 - $30 apiece.

A list of the publishers and their approximate mix would help determine the actual value of that lot.


Unless they are Necromancer, Goodman, Kenzer, etc, they are just going to sit and gather dust.  If you could get it for under $200, you might have a deal (note the $200 shipping).  I would have to say that at under a buck a book, even crap might not be that bad...you might be able to get your money back on some of it at HPB for that cheap (some Half Prices overpay for gaming stuff, if you know which ones.....) or sell it at a convention in a bargain box.  But personally I wouldn't pay a penny over $200 (hint, hint).
 Also note the shipping method..how much of that stuff is going to be beat to hell when it reaches you, stuffed in that ridiculous giant box with no padding...

Valley Forge, anyone?

(Out of curiosity: is that game just the rulebook, or is there supposed to be more?)

Just the rulebook.  Not that it really matters...check out my last post in the "Silliest non-TSR auction" thread.  If the current bidder wants it he is probably going to get it.

There is also a Valley Forge II book out there that is much tougher to find.

The listing cites USPS Media Mail...I don't think that box would even fit in my Mail Lady's truck and I've never seen her deliver anything using a pallet jack :lol:   Gotta imagine the winner would get a bunch of boxes?

Cardboard most likely and by the time they got to you (IF they did) they would be torn to pieces.

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

Considering the prices they've gone for, though, I'm not surprised.
