I am confused.:? The one I just won is perfect. :)


Hence my comment re. $89 being a 100% genuine bid- not "jacking up" the price- even though H1 is far from a "priority" item on my shopping list.

I hadn't being keeping tabs on all the bids, but decided it wasn't worth trying any higher if you were likely to comment that I was just "making you pay" an extra $20/whatever.



(Couldn't resist mentioning coug's auction being pulled away from under his muzzle in passing, regardless of condition. Sorry! ;)).

Ahhh, now I understand. Besides, I was just teasing about the *jack-up* thing anyway. I am still quite happy with the win. :wink:



Aside, notice who is not anywhere on that bidding list:

eBay.com Item Bid History



Who also happens to be absent for the bidding list on this one that is currently still up as well:

I just snagged a 1st print MM and some jetsam for under $30US.



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1



I had to sweat this auction showing up in "Interesting Items Currently on ebay" for a week.  (I really hate that thread sometimes)



I sold my copy last fall and have recently been furiously looking for a cheap replacement.  I was getting nervous after the last couple went for $100+.



(I offered the guy $50 bucks when the auction was 1st listed and he turned me down.  He said to reread the auction that it clearly states they never end auctions early.  I've read the damn thing 50 times and still can't find anything about ending auctions early in there...of well I'm glad he turned me down now!)

Is snag British slang for masterbation or something?  (I don't get it)

I'm stupid.  When you said "this lot" I thought you were referring to the lot of items I won in the auction not "this lot of forum members".  *smacks self in face*

I felt certain my snipe would win :cry:


$120-140 sounds about right, IMHO; Guidon Games' Tractics by Reese & Tucker with Gygax



Paul's Guidon set I pushed to $140+, IIRC (as opposed to the $71 Mike guessed last time ;)).

I doubt a woodgrain set would go for as little as $50 in VG+ condition very often, since I've seen wargamers willing to bid well above that mark if they spot it.


Meh.... What did I say? :(

So what happens when the Spanish Inquisition meets the B17 Flying Fortress?  :lol: (Oddly enough, I bet y'all expected that one.)

Look at this offer...



Ad&d Lot: Dungeons & Dragons | eBay



And you can read (about invisible ink module)



"I do not have the special pens, so you can't even highlight new areas in the modules (DO NOT USE A NORMAL HIGHLITER! It will NOT work).



The good news is that you can read all of the text (whether it's already been highlighted with the special pen or not), with an ultraviolet light. I have a small handheld light that I got from Pet Smart for detecting animal urine, and it works great for this use. A second alternative is to do a Google search online. I know of one web site that has listed all of the hidden text for Maze of the Riddling Minotaur, and a second web site that's working on Blizzard Pass."



Who like to detect animal urine :?: :?:

Everybody here have his own tools for detecting animal urine? So strange.
