Correct.  But my seller labelled it "Board Game"  :cry: And I can't really expect him to know international rules on Importing and Exporting as he is not a trader.  I should have told him to label it "Books".  So, my own fault.

I now have to appeal to Customs & Excise that the item is in fact a set of 3 books in a box.  Although the eBay listing clearly says that it is a RPG and this may cause C&E to insist that it is a game even though not a "Board Game".

But yes, I did want the box.  Which means I have a woodgrainless 3rd for sale.

Turns out the seller works for Jedko.  And I've already asked if they have any old archive material to sell.  No such luck.  :wink:

Hrr... where's the board?

Good luck with this, John, but I'd suspect once you've paid the duty it's going to be very tough to reclaim it.

Doesn't matter if it's a "game". If it's a book, it's a book... or a boxed set of books.
Might as well stick duty on anything that's humorous.

*chuckles*. Good try :)

Oh, you should get fairly good money for the books, I think.
(Sorry, boardless game...???)

OK, it would have been a fun find; but we all missed it, I think.

Unforuntaly I don't have a costume, but I'll be happy to drape a sheet over myself, cut two eye holes, and come as a 2 hit dice ghost.  :lol:

Nice win Brette

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5934912018

The first time my sniping site has let me down.  :cry:

I've recently got rid of 3 used sets for £10/$18 each.  So, these are a bargain IMHO.

Looks like IT spent some time in the desert. Good play copy though.

I saw these, read the description, and said well $70 probably means $35 each. So why not try a snipe of $100 bucks. What the hay right. No one noticed or maybe they aren't worth a thing? Anyone know about these?

This bundle has been sold by Noble Knight Games for a long time.  They have a ton of these.  The price you paid is pretty much consistent with what they have been going for +/- $20.  Not sure if you were aware but the "City of Brass" is only a promotion flyer.

Yes, I was aware. Did the other bundles they sold have the City of Brass flyer?

Yup I thought about bidding on that one but the actual currency exchange rate from Swiss Franc to Euro is the killer   :x
