Welcome to Acaeum TreeX!  It was interesting to see your misprinted Thief's Handbook - made that average book interesting.  ;-)

TreeX,

What kind of stuff did you lose in the flood.  I might be able to help with Dragon Magazines.  You can have my over #50 issues if you like.

Thanks Guys, I appreciate the welcome.  Prufrock, thanks for the offer, very generous of you.  The majority of what was lost consisted of my 1st Edition hardcovers along with my TimeLife Enchanted World set.  Of all the things not to have stored in a plastic tote!!  Bunch of other miscellaneous modules and stuff, too.  It's life, and I'm not losing sleep over it (anymore  :wink: ).

Hello!
 I have been checking this site for printing info and price estimates for a few years now, so I figured I'd join the forums!  Life long D&D player (since 1980), with some gaps due to lack of fellow players.  I'm the old school guy in my current weekly group (rolling with the original 5 die set).  Life has put me in a spot where I can start recollecting the lost treasures of my youth.  I could kick myself for losing track of my old box sets etc...Most of it was lost to stupidity and focusing on new editions as they came out.

Cheers

Welcome!!

Plus, just dropping by in myself after a hiatus for a bit.  I've still been picking up a few pieces here and there but am just getting back into things again.  Life has kept me busy for a bit.   :)

Hello everyone:

Alex Kammer here. I am the director of Gamehole Con, an annual tabletop gaming Con held in Madison, WI. (www.gameholecon.con) Gamehole Con is named after The Gamehole, the name of my long standing gaming group and the location of my collection.

I am an avid collector of TSR things. I nearly have a complete collection.

I probably should have joined this site long ago as I have used it as a resource for years.

Anyway, thanks for having me and if I can ever help in any way, please let me know.

Alex

Welcome The Gamehole!  And thanks for announcing your presence.  The more, the merrier.

A nearly complete collection?  Woah!  Feel free on the forums to post pictures of your stash as others have done or just photos of some of your rarer and/or more unusual items.  We like pictures!   :)

Welcome Alex!   A lot of us started using this site before we became official members!

As for "complete", you'll find that many of us have different versions of what complete is... I myself am down to needing only 15 titles to "complete" my collection, but after looking at Stratochamp's binder at GenCon last year, I've just barely started!  I didn't know TSR made half that stuff!  ;-)

Hey folks,
New to the forum, old to gaming.
I'm 43 from Norwalk, CT and used to own a game store, used to work in radio and currently work in a library. I collect various RPG's, board games and more. I'm always looking for something new or old to fill a hole in my gaming. I hit Gen Con every year and just started attending Gary Con.

Favorite items of note I may or may not own: Dark Tower board game, Holmes D and D, Circus Maximus, Deadlands classic, original art.

Welcome Icetower!

I'm but a 90 minute drive from your general location I believe (I'm in the NW hills of CT).

What was your game store called?

As far as original art goes, my most significant piece is the DCC RPG Wizard Cover by Doug Kovacs. I also have some 2nd Edition D and D pieces that were used in Dark Sun and Ravenloft books, nothing majorly significant.

My game store was called Haunted Chapel Comics and Games in Norwalk, CT.

Nice to meet y'all!
