Just two resellers looking to make a profit were in on this one . . .  All five BECMI plus World of Greyhawk and Battlesystem for only $43.66 plus $13.50 shipping!

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0013292178

I liked the look of this one so much I placed an early bid to keep others from "asking" to BIN . . . and then set my snipe.  :D

Close, Al.  I believe it is the fairy logo ST1 you're thinking of.

Haha..Wouldn't that be cool, though?

Stephen, you should edit your picture to show a bunch of rares floating in the lake behind you.

Did you know that if you plastic-wrap 4 OCE's and glue them to your boots, you can walk on water?

Works even better with Browns, tho.

Well, that's only for the truly endowed... you fill the white (or brown) with water and freeze it before bagging it and gluing it to your boots. Done right, they can make good substitute ice-skis, even.

If you fill the boxes with extra D&D rules sets or Guidon booklets, that helps by providing more weight.

For substitute snowshoes, tho, it's much better to stick with the tried-and-true Tamo/Inverness setup. They're larger, the old paper holds its shape better when frozen, and the original bags provide a good seal. The difference in colors also keeps you from confusing right and left.

Darn, I need another woodgrain. :(
(Was that in total or per foot, Frank?)

AOK on the Tamos, however. :)

Fairies?  What?  :?

Did you mean series?

The Games Workshop modules have a fairy logo on them.  Its hard to see in the auction pic posted previously.  You can see it a bit better, bottom center, here...

T1 for sure has a mono print... then there'd be also B2 mono (don't know whether that version was sold stand-alone or in the basic set...)

I don't believe there was a GW version of the T1 or S2 mono.  The rest exist.  Completing the set is quite an accomplishment, ifearyeti, congrats! :)

I don't think anyone's confirmed the B2 mono's existence at all.  As usual with this sort of thing, I'd be delighted to be wrong. ;)

Um... we did B2 after I arrived in 1980 (I wrote a teeny weeny lil' piece of it), and at that point we weren't doing monochromes at all. So unless a UK version was done in mono, there are none.
