I know what his Ebay handle is.  And it also helped that he PM'ed me before he bid and after he won it.  :wink:

OK, but even if you know his ebay handle, you can't see that anymore right, unless you're querying his completed auctions, right?  Or, am I not in the know on the secret bidder-detector strategem?

Even though it doesnt show the Ebay ID of the bidder it does still show the "secret bidders" feedback rating which you can match to their ID as long as you know what it is.

So, you have to track other Acaeum members' feedback ratings, then, right??

Track is not the operative word I would use.  That makes it seem like I am checking up on his Ebay transactions on a daily basis and updating his feedback rating on a spreadsheet or something.  :)  I don't.

If you know the persons eBay ID you can still use the following link to track what the person is up to.

In this case our favorite feline! Just replace the "cougarrinard" portion of the URL with the ID of the seller/buyer that you want to check out.

I knew you could do an advanced search to search for items by bidders, but I didn't see how that would help you ID who bid on a particular transaction (with the hidden usernames) unless you happened to hit on one of the bidders in that auction (because you knew that grodog_of_greyhawk would bid on GH tourney, or somesuch).

Well -- no surprise here to Badmike -- I overpaid for this.  But I still think it's pretty cool.   8)   Phil Foglio was actually nominated for a Hugo for Best Dramatic Presentation for this in 1976.  He and Bob Asprin apparently would go to various conventions and do dramatic readings while projecting the slides of the book.

I don't know if anyone else will care, but I remember being intrigued by the ads for this back in the days I read Dragon regularly.  It's a fun find for me, anyway.

Cool - IIRC the review in White Dwarf was rather scathing!

I just reread it (WD86).  I wouldn't say scathing.  Mixed, maybe.

I'm not really worried about playability - I've been waiting 20+ years just to read this.  And yes, there were just those two supplements; another reason I pulled the trigger on this auction.

Martin,

I sold one last year for around $110 in same general condition. So I am thinking demand might have decreased.
Still a great buy.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Wow - great price. I paid $25 for just the base set at GenCon last year. I bought it mostly for the nostalgia (had the box back in the 80's) and also because I've tossed around the idea of a con game version of Red Dawn.

I think the location the auction was listed (Books>Fiction Books) has more to do with the low price than decreased demand.  I planned to bid on this but when I noticed that Martin already had I decided not to as a "professional courtesy".  Also, had it been posted here it would have probably went for quite a bit more.
