Many guys here have dealt with him...including one who bought a giant chunk for the UK market.

I talked to him before, what he bought was a warehouse in NY from the previous owner Tony Zilz (sp? - have to dig out my notes) so is actually the second or third owner of that huge lot. I've bought from him, and also from Tony.

Fencert is a member of the Acaeum...although not a real active one.

He has been looking for a buyer for his entire Judges Guild stock, and his post here was in search of someone interested.

He has a battle mat that he wants to distribute, and he has been trying to clear out all of his warehouse space for that project.

Not in the best condition, but there's an unlisted Umbar as well as a better condition (listed) Court of Ardor in the midst of

** expired eBay auction **

$39 for a stack with 2 days to go but will probably require a fairly large snipe to win if everything's complete.

(same seller yet again...)

RE: City of Chaos.  Lots of opinions on Boardgamegeek.  The overall view seems to be that it's cool but has very low replay value.

I take it you got an offer you couldn't refuse?:  eBay.com Item Bid History

Someone got a bargain and the seller loses out. What a schmuck.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I wouldn't rip someone off.  I honestly think he got a very fair price.  In fact, I really doubt those models would have even gone for as much as I  paid if the auctions were allowed to run their course.

There was a total of 29 modules he had up. Only #3.5 was worth more than cover price.  You can easily get the rest of them for 30% off of retail on eBay.
The retail price for the 28 modules (everything but 3.5) is $350
30% off of that is $245
Given that data (which is what I used to make him my offer), I paid over $200 for 3.5.
Do you really think he would have sold EVERY item for a full 70% of retail, PLUS made over $200 for 3.5, had he allowed the auction to run their course?
Add to that the eBay fees, and the added hassle of collecting money from 20+ different people and packing & mailing 20+ different packages.

I think the whole transaction was perfectly fair to both of us.  Not every transaction like this involves a buyer ripping off an ignorant seller.

That DCC #3.5 is a TOUGH one to find though, and if you were hoping to bid on it, I can understand your frustration.  It went for a very fair price IMHO.

Ever think that the buyer lost out!  Both sides must have been happy with it or the deal would have never went though.

What would you have said if you made the deal :?

Sounds fair enough to me. Kudos for not trying to rip anyone off and thanks for posting, Gus.
A decent price to the seller and benefits of combined shipping to yourself (and I'd be more than happy at that, too! :))

aside, fyi: The Mask of Death has been all over the place from $20 to $70+ but that's more likely one for future "growth" (why does that word leave a bad taste in the mouth?) than any current stability at a high level, as with the Haunted Lighthouse.

Already had one: scanned it, breaking the spine, then flogged it to me (via eBay) as "Mint".
Only reason for needing another one would be to resell at a profit, I'd've thought.

Here goes Bryan (the one with a y) being a jerk again.... 8O

First off I would like to have a copy but will not pay what it is going for. Prays for a reprint!  :twisted:

I hate auctions being ended like that. If you want to make an offer then make it a bid. If the seller wants to save eBay fees then he should have advertised it somewhere else. They knew to come here and post a message why not post it here as a private sale.  :?

Truth be told I am sure what both parties did is in violation of eBay policies. Any consequences from breaking those (if any) should be incurred.

At least in this situation it was not an auction that ran for six days and was ended mysteriously. And I would apply this to anyone who does this...so I know I am stepping on some toes, some big toes and some that I sure will fire me up. Just more hate from a fly over state I guess!  :lol:
