Not by me, I don't want to appear on the 'Silliest Auction Price of the Year' topic again...  :lol:

I've got a Silver Anniversary box next to me on my desk  :oops:  and it does have the separate G1, G2, and G3 in it.

Heh, I was really tempted to split my set up, and try something like that. Figured I'd roll the dice and hope for a bidding war on the full set though :P  ($67 with 3 days left, so might end up going nicely)

Wow!  I think this is the most fun find in this whole fun finds thread.  Care to share any backstory on this?

I am hoping this is just a guess. :? $200 US would be quite a score.  If that is the case are interested Malcolm in tripling your money right away. :P

Nope, paid a very fair price - heading towards 2k GBP.

The guy does have a LOT more stuff, tho that is the cream of the d&d.

Now, to get Mike Brunton to sign the new ST1....  :D
The Missus won't let me keep 4 copies, so expect one on Ebay at some point. Also the Woody (I already have a 3rd print).

Yes, I was interested in the PA pins as well - there are 2 different types.

Let's see---2000 UK pounds = roughly US$3700-3900 . . . and ST1 is considered one of, if not the highest price, modules at somewhere around US$2000.  WOW . . . AND an H1 Bloodstone Pass that wasn't squashed!!!!  :)  What a find/deal!

Now, which module is BX1?  Something with a different code, or something completely separate?

Wow!  I did not know Royal Armies of the Hyborian Age even existed!  I must get one.  

Anyone got a spare they'd be willing to sell?  :D


My own copy of Royal Armies of the Hyborian Age just arrived today!  After bombadil's post I made some casual inquiries to see if anyone had one they'd be willing to sell.  A friend of mine seems to have heard my plight and just surprised me by sending his extra copy as a Christmas present!

I've only just glanced at it, but it seems really cool!  I'll check it out later on today.  


:D

Noble Knight's copy of the game is $45, and their description doesn't list the modules as being in the boxed set.  Sounds like a cool deal for you.
