  Why did they bid up an old DM screen as high as $34.    :?

The North Koreans are almost certainly in on it...some sort of Manchuian Candidate scheme with a pre-programmed killer launching his plot by bidding up RPG prices.

    As for insane RPG bids...I am only a little guy, watching the big dogs fight, but it seems to me that the powerhouse bidding was started by members of a little-known internet cabal known by the crpytic acronym of ACAEUM.  Bastards!     :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

That's too much, but it's actually the closest-to-reality price of all his BINs.  All he has to do is wait for a guy with lots of money that doesn't recognize the concept of condition, though.

I don't think so.  I could see myself paying $1000 for R1-4 in mint condition if I really wanted them that bad, had the money to burn, and didn't have a lot of other options.  But asking $179 for an R2 that looks like that is just criminal.

Gygax has traveled back in time! Because it was written in 1978....before he made the game.

Must have been that damn Ring of Gaxx!

well considering his feedback....i think "the light is on, but there is nobody home" tells us a lot about what his brain holds :)

The guy's got a feedback of 80.0%, what more do you really need to know?  Pretty sure that's lower than jonb went before he vanished.

This is just weird.. especially since the box looks a bit battered and the person describes it "This is a mint and boxed game in unplayed condition" (if so, why are the stand-ups all standing up?)
