S&H.

I wonder about the D&DG - I have never, ever owned a physical copy of that book which did not contain the mythoi for Lovecraft and Moorcock's writings. So now I'm curious as to which version it is.

Maybe it'll get here this evening and I'll have an answer.


Sometimes I think the Deities and Demigods without the Lovecraft/Moorcock stuff is more rare than with it!

Not sure if the price was any good. It is one I always thought I should own. I have to say I was plesantly surprised with the game now that I have seen it. I thought it was more of a Dungeon level game. It is much closer to Divine Right.

Looks like a great price; I've seen it over $40 at times.

I always liked the game (I'm credited in both editions, and single-handedly did the revision).

Furthermore, looks like this one is a 1st printing. The title on the box edge is small & hard to read (enlarged in 2nd) and the booklet is too long. (There are cover differences too but I forget.) IIRC we did a package redesign and I trimmed it down into a 32-page booklet without removing anything (!).

That's a great find at that price. It's an interesting game, too ... in fact, many of the TSR boardgames are worthy collection fodder, IMO.

Good score.

+++++

Aside: that listing would have scared me away, though. I'm not a big fan of listings that just beat you over the head with do's and don't's. On my screen, the description is 15 lines long; 14-plus are used for rules and regulations. That's just ridiculous.

Yeah, a couple I'm looking still looking for in there. Nice prices...
Am sure that seller ID looks familiar, too... :?

(Ah, but what about your DW #1? "Even" at $20, I'd've bitten your hand off for that! :P)

Forgot about these: :P

and

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

2 of the M&T's and the Basic rulebook are 1st prints. Too bad the Basic rule book is colored in a bit with marker on the cover, its perfect otherwise. :?

Of the Draconic variety...
Totally missed those.

How much did you have to arm-twist them for non-US shipping? ;)
