Average age of gamers (from surveys) was certainly decreasing in the UK through the late 70s/mid 80s.

Am surprised no-one introduced a system (Wombquest?) for the "pre-birth generation", the way things were going. 8O

(Just as well, perhaps, since I'd hate to think of some of the condition descriptions for second-hand accessories on eBay... *shudders*).

Hrmmm, sorry...

How does anyone get their numbers to a point of discernable validity, with so many deadbeat buyers / sellers out there???


I have taken to adding the line "I'll leave feedback for you after you leave feedback." to the payment notice.  They get the item but no feedback until they leave some feedback first.  It's a shame it requires these tactics!  And maybe they don't care about 'discernable validity' -- that's the scarry part!!!

oh well, someone bought the lot.
Makes a change from their usual purchases of pond pumps, speaker stands and 'phone holsters, I suppose.

Might be cheap, for all I know. :?

Now I am worried about you ... checking up on every buy I make.  

You have far too much time on your hands :-)

Half out of interest, just put a bid on a reasonably good copy since mine wasn't much better than the one I gave away.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5922872649

Result. *ching*. $20. No great deal. Maybe it only sells well in the U.S.??
(With any luck this copy might be from the other printing, too).

*shrugs at the hype*

I bought one of those used at a game store, in slightly better condition than the one Harami bid on, for $30.  Worth it at that price, but not at $150.  Hype sold the $150 copy.  Knowing what I wanted and being in the right place at the right time netted me mine at $30.

Although the book is worth owning, it does not merit all the hype it gets.

He's tried to sell those before, I believe.
I'd like to see a set of dice made from kiln-dried elephant dung. Or maybe 2-year-old hardened Spam. Now THAT would be worth a bit.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

:wink: OK -- 'typical woman comment':  Went to his site and looked at dice.  I find them interesting and the Hermatite and Malachite are very attractive.  Far more interesting than the plastic ones - IMHO.   :roll:

:D You guys can really make me laugh.  THANKS!

People who play on glass tables shouldn't throw dice made of stones.

I really like to see dice made of non-plastic materials, but 1250 bucks is a bit steep.

The past two years these dice sets have been sold at the GenCon auctions. A set of dice made from dinosaur bones was auctioned but I can't remember what they went for, but I am sure it was over $1000.

Oops, just checked the price that the Dinosaur dice went for. It was only $590. A real bargain. :)

I love the bragging.  "I am the only person in the world that owns all three sets...."

Ok, they're just dice.  They may be made differently, but they still are frickin dice folks.  If they sell, I might just put up my supposedly rare transparent Zocchihedron on Ebay.  :roll:

The resale value of that collection, individualized and considering the shrinkwrapped U3, is about $110-$180.  So I think the current bid is a bit high, but not insane.  Nev's got the right idea.
;)

Ah...resale.  :wink: I hadn't thought of that.  I was busy looking for a hidden PoVQ or something.
