Tournament modules from a con in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan circa 1983.  They are very nicley done:)  

Very cool



I own these.

I brought these tournaments up here a little while back.
Saskatoon had a thriving gaming community in the 80's (probably still does). The modules went on sale after the tournaments were over,of course, but you could also buy them from The Wizard's Corner as well. The tournaments were usually pretty good turnouts 20-30 groups of 4-5 players each. There are other tournament modules from different years.

While not necessarily hard to find, I picked up a shrinkwrapped Wilderlands of High Fantasy (Necromancer Games) and a hardbound City State of the Invincible Overlord (Necromancer) at a local game store auction a week or two ago for only $21. It was listed as a "d20" lot.

I never thought I'd find one of them for that price, let alone both....!

I'd say that was about a $150 savings, though I haven't priced these in quite awhile.

Probably a better savings than that. I sold a d20 Wilderlands for $220 and a d20 CSIO for $65 in the last month or so. (Though Joe Goodman has been liquidating several of his personal copies of d20 Wilderlands lately, which is probably eroding the price on that in the short term.)

Edit: But wow, I just looked at completed auctions, and a bunch went fairly cheap right after I sold mine.

Iron Maiden HeroClix. Have always hated their music, but Eddie's a different story (one of the first major album-cover icons of githyanki heritage, I understand).

While browsing a gaming store that I have never been too before, I found a copy of Circvs Maximvs.  I had a copy years ago, along with Gladiator, but got rid of them at some point.  I re-acquired Gladiator awhile back and was pleased to find Circvs Maximvs today for only around $15.  Box only has some scuffing and general shelf wear but is not torn, dished or crushed.  Contents appear to be all there and in nice shape.

$15 for a complete box set of Circus Maximus is a big bargain.
Nicely done.

Thanks!

Now to maybe take the game for spin a few times to learn how to play.  Then perhaps next June, I'd feel comfortable entering the races at NTRPG Con.

Hell, I did not know how to play and entered the races in 2011 and 2012 and had a blast.  The whole game is set up on the premise of screw your neighbor.  Everyone knows how to play that.

Nice find.
