Sheesh...

Guess you're not complaining too much, Ian!?

Oh well, if the buyer's happy; and it's not a huge amount of money compared with some of the other silly prices which have been seen, in the past.

Ozzie G mods; $275
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5168174927

compared with $153.50 "first time" around,
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5937140505

Hrmm... There's logic in there, somewhere...

(actually managed to beat the $260 for the rather better Ds, too)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5937140476

===

Those mods with the fighting wheel I mentioned seemed rather high at $345, too.

OK, would any of the non-feline high bidders here like to explain, please. I know they looked reasonably good, but couldn't see anything overly "special".

This Non-Feline bidder stopped at $153 on that Auction, but I was planning on going much higher. Maybe up to $200 plus, but not $345....

I started bidding mostly as I like the fighting wheels (I already have one, but it is SW, and I will not open it, so I have been looking for one to examine and mess with) and all of the modules looked to be in Exc - Mint condition, and many of them I do not have.

My high bid was truly a paltry sum considering the final winning bid. Once it got past what I was thinking of going up to, I just sat back in awe....

FWIW: The last SW fighting wheel I saw went for about my high bid on that auction by itself... leaving only a couple of hundred for all those nice mods....

I had my eye on that auction the whole time and was considering like a $225 snipe plus shipping cost, because I wanted the fighting wheel and nothing else. I put price a on the fighting wheel at about $40-$50 which would have put about a $180 bid for the 32 modules($6 per)  that I would have split up and sold individually.  However, after it broke the  $225 barrier I was out, way out.  Considering the fact that most of the modules in that lot are pretty common, and 2 of them are just throwaways  (X1 & B2 regardless of their condition, both sell for next to nothing) there is just no way I could get value back on that by splitting it up and selling it.  From a selling stand point there is no way you could really expect to get more than an average $6-$7 per module on a lot like that, so unless you have a hell of a lot more use for that lot supplementing your own collection than I do (triplicates? I am set :wink: ) I cant justify going anywhere over $225.  Even still, if you take a very high end value on the fighting wheel, say $75.00, that gives you an auction total of $270 plus shipping for 30 modules.  $9.00 a module, no thanks, I'll pass  8O

i think i bid up to about $245 on that lot....was gonna put one more bid back on when i checked back after being told i had been outbid, but when i saw it had gone way beyond $250 (which was pretty much my target), i jibbed it. i only wanted the fighting wheel too, as i havent got one and would have just sold on the rest of the mods to part finance what i paid.

ne'mind - another will come along :)

Dungeon Game for D&D



In seperate Auctions this seller is listing a Seperate Portion of this game (That might sell as a whole game for $15)



Rules in this one,

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 5&rd=1



Spell cards here,

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0&rd=1



25 Dead Monster Counters here,

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 1&rd=1



there are many more listings for various pieces of this game as well. Too many for me to list here during lunch...



I bought a more complete version of this game not long ago and this past weekend my grandson and I played it. It was actually not bad a tall. He is 8 and understood enough that it was fun for both of us. We tied (lol). But one thing I will say is that Several pieces were missing here and there, I had to make due in some places and be creative at others.



After playing that day, I actually got on line and would have bid on another (if I had seen one) just to make a more complete single game set and kept the rest for future lost items.



Hmmmm... :idea:  perhaps I should bid on some of this stuff.......?? :)
