** expired eBay auction **


Curious as to the value of this lot. I know I did pretty well just not sure if people value puzzles, etc much.

Anyway some things about this lot:
The D&D Mattel game is complete, but I'm curious if the metal figures are lead? And if so do they need to be protected?

The sparkly bookmark has a circular hologram of a scholarly wizard (pretty neat, and something that I'll have to start using)

The picture has a number and title "wizard w/magic crystal" which I'm going to see if anything pops up on google.

The cloth looks hand made (I think the tree is a representation of the magical tree in LOTR) and there seems to be a rune/signature to the left of it.

The metal figures are steel or another iron-composite.  If they have any lead content, the lead content is low.

I came across two of the Mattel figures that someone had painted with acrylics.  I stripped the paint, and they didn't rust while drying.  So . . . stainless steel?

Nice win!

Apologies to anyone who is going to resell any FGU products.  I'm going to put some on eBay soon, so I am shooting myself in the foot as well:

. . . Fantasy Games Unlimited - Official Home of Villains and Vigilantes, Aftermath!, Space Opera and other fine RPGs

No need for apologies, they don't carry all the stuff they have published (as far as I can tell).

That looks like a Dragon magazine that is missing the cover.  A lot of them had the ICE ad as the first page.

Everything that they have in stock is listed on the web page.  Their selection is limited, but they do have some of the pricey items.

This showed up in the mail today:


** expired eBay auction **


It turned out to be a nice surprise.  I was mainly after the DunDraCon Referee Map Modules which appears complete.  The Arduin Grimoire books are a little rough but each one has a little message and is signed by David Hargrave.  Also tucked in with the maps are Dungeon Geomorphs Set 1 and 2 (although they are cut up).

I don't know how much shipping costs.  The two Bard Games "Comleate" books and the ICE puzzle easily make up your value of $6.99.

Now, what the heck is the games in that? And how old is that?

What is it? A pack of disco games from the 70s? Make sure you dust off your old flares with the pockets in the knees when you load up those 5 1/4" floppies.  :D
