*looks around*



Um, I guess nobody else noticed this?




** expired eBay auction **






That's a heck of a lot less than I thought it would go for.


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based such as CoC, Runequest, Pendragon and all their related games

Well, it finally happened... I found Pegasus #1. I bought it. $20.

Has not arrived yet, but I should be able to say I finally completed those damn things soon....

Congrats.

Have seen the various Judges Guild magazines really selling these past few months.

At a local antiques/flea market my daughter and I were browsing, found a 7/10 copy of Heroquest (board game) with both the Return of the Witch Lord and Kellar's Keep expansions complete. The main box is in bad shape (split corners, scuffing, etc), but the contents are complete & intact. The expansions are complete and NM.

Price on it: $10 - offered $5 and they accepted...

I know!  $5 is way too much.  These show up at Value Village and Goodwill for $2.

They are good resellables.  I've picked up 4 copies (3 complete and in nice shape - a couple with expansions).  Heroquest sells much better than the Axis and Aliies, Shogun, Fortress America type games that I also pick up when I find them cheap.

Hey, I loved the fact he had the cajones to ask for a discount when $10 was the steal of the century.....

I've heard rumors that Goodwill has gotten out of the board game business. Or is that just around here? I'm looking for Expansions for my Heros Quest game and having a hard time finding any of the others aside from the two I already own - Return of the Witch Lord and Kellar's Keep.



Speaking of.. seriously!? ->

Barbarian and Elf quests sell for good money. But this price is just insane...





I received my Booty and the Beasts. I really enjoy this book, full of weird monsters, and great Otus illustrations. And I guess that i got it for a pretty decent price.

I thought $10 was worth it just for the base game (the furniture and figs are decent fodder for RPG uses)...having both expansions makes it more than worth it. Haven't checked in a few months, but all 3 were selling (as a package) on feebay for around $200 in the condition I have...

...as far as goodwill stores, there aren't any in my area (although we do have Salvation Army stores)...

...for other board games (A&A, Shogun, etc)...they sell very poorly, picked up an extra copy of A&A complete for $1...

OMG!



I read the title and thought, well it looks like everything is there.

So, its only about 9.3 k off on the price.

Then I read the description.

JUST EMPTY BOXES!   8O
