Totally missed those.

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


$10.00 - they seemed reasonably happy to send even though I didn't check in advance.  Was a wee bit of a gamble.  Perhaps I should have waited until they arrived before posting here  (crosses fingers...)

Da Lefse Shop? Here in IOLA?

Who is this guy? How did Dragon Dice in that shape pass through my own little village and me not know? Grrr...

Nice buy, by the way...

Sounds a bit too low for the usual quotes, if anything!

Do make sure they pack them in a small box unless you want the blister trashed. Looks too good to see that happen.
Max should be a $15 USPS GPS box with plenty of soft padding and corrugated card either side and firm reinforcement around the edges, anyhow.

*fingers crossed*

Ta.  Considering your recent buys, I thought you can afford to be generous.  :D  :wink:

Just got a mint shrinkwrapped N4 - Treasure Hunt for $12.25. Considering that the last one I saw rose above 100 dollars, I think I made a bargain.

Considering the prices these have been going for lately, I think you got a pretty good deal.

@ Dave; remember there's no extra charge for lamination in the UK!

Seriously, though; d'you know whether they're VF+ or VG-?

i recieved them today, will post some images when i get a chance.  R2 and R3 are in pretty good condition.  R1 has some wear on the spine, not too bad, at first glance i'd rate the R1 at VG- and the other two at F to VF.  i'd get them out for a closer look, but the wife is around and i don't want to explain how much i spent on them to her, don't think she'd understand ;)

Where did you get them from? I hope that you didn't, "Go Coug". :wink:

Sounds like a not-too-excessive price, then: and three birds with one stone is a major plus. :)
Pity no R4, since that one seems to be really painful to obtain.

Don't worry 'bout us; there should still be a good number of copies floating around the UK.

Given those other prices, I was going to say you did pretty well: then I saw £90 each (not $90!).

Nice negotiation: that was $100-off you managed to wangle there.
(Unless those are yet more copies, given the "EX" on R1).

Hope this is not too off topic, but speaking of Coug, I had noticed he has been buying some rather odd things again.

No diaper coupons this time though.  Maybe he cant afford to eat anymore now that he is having to sell all those H1's at half of what he paid for them.  :D

Over the Super Bowl weekend, one of my friends brought me his OCE boxed set as a gift.  The box also held Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Eldritch Wizardry, Gods, Demi-gods and Heroes and Swords and Spells, all in mint condition!    8O

  He also game me his boxed set of The Arduin Grimoire.     :P

  Needless to say, I was very thankful.  He said that he would rather have me enjoy them than just allow them to sit on his shelf for another 25 years.   8)

  Neener.
