Hard plastic red binder with large color sticker on the front (four characters infront of a door)

Anyone know if I got a good price on this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... :EOAB:US:6

I know that its T&T, but it looked interesting enough and it had a BIN that I stared at for the last day or so, until I finally decided to pull the trigger. :wink:

===========================================
I also picked this up a few weeks ago, but it finally arrived today :roll: :

If you post it on the "fun finds" thread instead of "interesting items", I'll say "yes". ;)
(But I think the answer's "yes", anyhow! :D)

Neat title page...

(aside: the earliest Dragons from the same seller are still a good price, but pref. not at the BIN).

Absolutely. The first-edition City of Terrors is a great addition to any collection; I've seen it go for a little bit less, but often for quite a bit more. It also has the distinction of being the first T&T equivalent of a "super-module"; the first eight T&T programmed adventures were all much smaller in size and scope (and most were much more A-to-B linear).

Ahh, Outdoor Survival, mine and my brothers favorite game before we discovered D&D.  We were so far ahead of our time; we had our own different scenarios...one was we were bank robbers escaping a big job, and we had to split up and go across the board...of course, you could land on another player, fight and try to kill each other and steal each other's bag of money....each player had a gun with six bullets, you could use them to kill stuff like bears, snakes, mountain lions, etc, or shoot each other (or shoot yourself to die with a little dignity if you were in the desert dying of thirst...).  But the best part was the homemade encounter tables....we had six encounter tables, you rolled one six sided dice which picked encounter tables 1 through 6, and each table had six results, for 36 results in all....man, we had everything from bear attacks, lion attacks, rattlesnakes, wolves, landslides, park rangers (armed with rifles of course), insane mountain men with knives, floods, fires, pits, falling trees, swat teams in helicopters, I swear I think we even had UFO abductions (but you could fight them off with your revolver).  We could play six games ina  row and still have fun.  Ahh, good times.

Also another module in the Haven series was on some editors old computer (though if it could ever be retrieved I'm not sure..trying to remember what was said at the time). The rights were sold, though interest for aquiring them was stated. Again I don't think it ever came about, or no further contact was established.


Tadashi owns all rights to the Gamelords product lines.  We've been in contact with various ex-GL principals about writing new products, including  Intrigue on the North Bank.

I seriously loved the whole series, and got them for cheap..especially the hard to aquire items from soem guy who had a lot of them (Haven city looseleaf, red binder with TG 1-3. And I even tried finding those posts again too.. :( also gone).


If you're very interested in the posted details (if they're from the Necromancer Games discussions), I do have print outs of all three threads.  You might also check the internet archive, too, though I don't know if they archive message boards vs. web sites.

The seller is actually a really nice guy from France. Francois by name. I've been looking for a copy of Booty for about 5 years now. Is it useful?

They are probably the best copies anyone could ever ask for. Signed too.

I've been watching this one all week...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

I know really nothing about this item, but early Guidon made it interesting. Most interesting perhaps is the name "Wham" written on the cover....hmmm....Tom Wham? It would make sense if G.G. and Tom knew each other in 1972...I would guess yes...anyone know?

Howdy -

From memory, Don Lowry ran a hobby store back in the late sixties/early seventies. He also had a mail order business, and his own company (Guidon Games) designing and producing games. He put out a newsletter for a bit, then took over the publishing of Panzerfaust magazine (and later on, Campaign).

Most of the Guidon business was wargaming stuff, and Gary started to contribute articles to Panzerfaust, and after a while became the Miniatures Editor. He also designed a few games, such as Dunkirk and Alexander, and helped with Tractics. When the mail order side started to get busy, Don took on some help - Tom Wham and Pete Rice. Tom had written some stuff with Don that was published under Guidon (Ironclad for example).

Next step was Don moving the business to Maine, with Tom and Pete going along. About this time Gary got started with TSR, and stopped contributing to Panzerfaust. Then sometime in the mid seventies Don moved again - this time to California. He kept the publishing side of things and the mail order, but sold the hobby shop to Pete who stayed in Maine. Tom left Guidon at about this point, and I imagine Gary offered him a job at TSR, which at that time was expanding exponentially.

I have a run of Panzerfaust and Campaign from issue 54 up to 110, and most of the story I know I gleaned from the editorials. It's been a while since I've read them, but I think thats the basics.

Regards

Mike
