Thanks.  I almost jumped on the BIN, but made an offer, and saved a little more....

Nice. Titan was actually the second item I ever bought on Ebay about five or six years ago. I got a complete and VF copy for $47. Shows how some of these items are going up in price. It is a great game. Takes a full day to play but is a lot of fun! :)

$47 for Titan seems like a great deal.  Even at my local cons a copy of Titan will get $100+ and there are usually only about 30 people at the auction.

An optimist would say that it might be an actual manuscript for one of those published items...  :)

I have seen other M.A.R.Barker stuff in manuscript or pre-pub form.  That could be one of them.

IIRC the published version of Mitlányal was released by Carl Brodt in 2004 @ DunDraCon; details @ Tita's House of Games | Tékumel Items

The entry at that link says:

Mitlányal

...and numerous corrections to the prior text-only version.


I'd guess that the text-only version is what aia bought.

Tekumel has had this sort of underground publishing effort for several years, via Carl Brodt, so I'm not surprised that there was a text-only version available before.  The question is, of course, if it's more valuable than the more-professionally published version? :D

Older would be cooler for me.

Professional does not equal better in my mind.

Then again, my mind is a strange place to most.   :x
