At Gencon 2007 a copy (I do not know which print) went for around $100.  I was not willing to pay that much at that time.  I would say that you got a great deal.  These do not show up that often.

That seems like a candidate for the silliest price thread.  I generally think the 2nd and 3rd prints sell in the $35-$40 range.  I always forget if I still need the $7 one or the $5.95 so I end up putting a token bid of $25 or so but don't end up winning.

Hi Mars,

The Gencon copy may have been a 1st print.  I remember Frank really talked up telling us how his character was killed by a human baby with a silver spoon!!!  Any way, I remember dropping out of the bidding at $80.

Mars - how often do you see them up for auction?

helps if know which is 2nd :) :) seller with last $7 cover before presumed current one also had early prints other items from start to mid 70s had always thought $7 was 1st. magazine reviews agree i think but need to check space gamer
sometimes $35-40 sometimes to $65-70 for metagaming ed but no pattern to cover price for bidding + not seen as $100 for recently so gencon high imo
$60 fair price martin uncommon + early rpg + good ideas from ken again

OK, so all this talk of Monsters! Monsters! made me dig into my stuff to see what is what, or at least which one I have.

I found the following --

$5.95 cover price. Inside listed as First Edition. Copyright 1976. Staple bound.

Is that the 1st print?

Huh. OK. That means I've got to track down a $7 cover price version now, too. Damn.

Thanks.


/adds one more freaking duplicate book to the never-have pile. :)

How big a deal is that?  I was just able to pick one up cheaply as well.

Its a pretty typical price.  Most of the New Infinities items sell for $10 maybe $15 on a good day but usually less.  Its a shame because they are good modules and I'm pretty sure Gary was very fond of King Despot.

Another one!


Just got my Monsters!Monsters! 4th print. In the lower left there is an individual print number #9102. Does anyone know if it originally came with this small stamp? Were all 4th printings individually numbered? If so, how many were released?

Thought this looked like a decent price and I want to see what the hoopla was about.

I was pleased to get Rappan Athuk Reloaded at this price.  I thought it would take a lot more patience for me land this, but it is the first copy I have had opportunity to bid on.

Has it been opened, or is it still shrinkwrapped?
