I received a copy of Bifrost Vol 1. today, bought from T&T for 14.99$! I am very happy for that price, even if the booklet has been slightly damaged during shipping.

Well, its neat to me...

Castle Keepers Guide for C&C by Troll Lord Games. Its the digest version but smaller, and Steve said the one I got was a "test" version. Still has all the content, just physically different. I guess that makes it a "pre-publish."

Oh, and that does mean the "vaporware" book is real. They're waiting on the better binder to make the hardcovers.

I was just doing an inventory of my Grenadier boxsets yesterday when I opened up an old one and found one of the limited Gold Plated minis. :)   If anybody recalls these were promos stuffed into the Gold Line mini box sets as sort of chase minis.  Very hard to come by and can be expensive.  Cool to finally own one.

"...and found one of the limited Gold Plated minis."

Nice! Is it the orc or the wizard? Either way, very cool to uncover an overlooked treasure.

Anyone know how many of the Death in Dunwich books were signed and numbered ?

If you're happy, that's great, but the price seems awfully high to me.  Actually, all his CoC stuff is at a huge premium.



These are definitely an oddity, but what's the value of signatures from obscure people?

This is the first time I see all those signed too. Didn't know some were signed. They seems to be highly overpriced. However, a decent price is a price which satisfied you, and since you seems to be happy, it is a decent price :)

Cthulhu stuff in general isn't going very cheap in my opinion. Or maybe I'm just missing all the cool auctions  :P

But I totally agree the price was high.

That shopping urge is just too hard to handle at times  :wink:

The signed items you got are definitely something different, but most of that seller's listings are very high.

I've built up a CoC collection over the last year or so, and I definitely didn't pay $25-50 each for the novels (more like <$10) or $60+ for TOME/Triad/Pagan material.  I think the only thing I couldn't find cheaply was HotOE, some of the early box sets,  and maybe a couple of the limited hardcovers.  $100 for Grace Under Pressure, really?  I think I paid like $8.

Core CoC items with big value (let's say $50+), from what I've seen:

CoC 1E box
HotOE
TUO 2
the rarest Pagan items (CM, SRM, ToT, MToT, KC, WC)
CoC 25th hc
CoC 20th hc
Walker In The Wastes
Golden Dawn
Delta Green: Countdown

And I bet if I check my notes I got a couple of those for <$50 too.



Now, all that being said, I think CoC has held value a lot better than many other things, but it's still down, just like everything else.

Thanks a lot for these insights!

I'm sure there are nice deals to be found. $8 for Grace under Pressure is very nice.

I tend to buy in lots mostly just to offset the shipping a bit. I was able to get my collection started from a guy who sold basically his complete collection. Except for the very rare pagan stuff that I couldn't afford at the time.

Pagan stuff I was able to buy at coverprice mostly. Except for the zine-like publications of course.

Some of the items you mention there I was also able to get below $50. Just have to get lucky some times  :P

The Players aid kit too (Walker in the wastes Player's aid kit, and Realm of shadow PAK). Last ones sold for more than $100 IIRC

Yes, I definitely should have listed those.  Lurking Fears (Triad) has a handout pack too; it would also be on the list.

Now that was one of those lucky cases. The Lurking fears handout pack I just got included with the book without extra charge  :D

What about those Pagan Sosostris, Broadalbin, and ambrose books ? Any price indication on those ? I've never even seen those.

I'd agree - rare and thus pricey.

But it's not gaming material either - they're novels/plays.  So it doesn't even make my cut for wanting it in the first place.  :)

I bought this War Games Book a few weeks ago and had not had time to list it here until now.

Published by REG Games (Sussex) Ltd.
[Wargames Research Group]
Copyright August 1973.
It is a 4th Edition of War Games Rules.
The most glaring difference from earlier Editions of this Rules set is the introduction of Fantasy to Wargaming.
Appendix IV Suggested Adaptations for Sword and Sorcery Fanatics
Located at the back are three pages of Fantasy Creatures and Rules for using them.
Saints
Warrior Saint
Moslem Saints
Hero
Elves
Dragons
Trolls
Giants
Ents... yes really... they do not like Chaos, Barbarians, and folks with Axes.
Goblins and Orcs
Demons
Tame Crows (Used by Mages)
Basilisk
Dwarves
Magicians

How many published fantasy wargames existed by that point? Two? Could there be more than this plus Chainmail? That is, historical wargames with supplemental chapters on fantasy.
