I was happy to win these two modules.  Condition is not perfect, but then I am not really a perfect collector.

I put small snipe on that auction.  I did not want to drive the price up artificially for whoever might win it...because it might have been an Acaeum member...but I also did not want to miss out if no one else had thought to bid.  

I checked later in the day...and looked for my snipe in the "losers" category.  It wasn't there!  That meant it had to be in the "winners" category.  It was.  Woot!

Or it could have meant that it didn't register. :P   I've had that happen before too. :(

I have never had an Auction Sniper snipe fail to register.  Maybe if I cut the lead time down to a second or two?

I've had them fail to register if the minimum bid exceeds my snipe.

** expired eBay auction **


And a Booty (which was nice, because I forgot to bid on deadlord's)

** expired eBay auction **




Both of which - makes up for getting outbid on the Antarctic Expedition pack

** expired eBay auction **


...and that Bio One (nice win Allan!)

** expired eBay auction **




:D

THE QUEST - Icarus Games 1984

I did some research on The Quest after I won a copy for cheap on Ebay.

I found a link to an online seller who has copies listed:

The Decision Games page you are looking for cannot be found

The way the internet works, there may or may not be more copies available.

Anyone interested ought to follow the link and snap up copies if they are still available.

Jeff's Game Blog is also an interesting read at this link:

The font and (lack of) artwork on the first one make it look like a Fifth Cycle product, and a visit to the Noble Knight site verifies that.

The last one (a Darkwood supplement) is Robin-Hood-style role-playing.  The auction description mentions "Contains detailed maps and information on Nottingham and Nottingham Castle."  Noble Knight confirms this as well.

I don't believe that either is particularly valuable, though Fifth Cycle products are more scarce.

Been looking for one of these for awhile, and by the time I got around to trying to buy Badmike's they were all gone.  I think that leaves Cavaliers and Roundheads as my big outlier among the non-D&D TSR items.  Sigh....

This lot came in the mail yesterday.

As for the seller...very very very good packaging, and excellent communication all around.  Fast shipping as well.

The two modules are interesting because they are not single adventures.  Each one of the Game Master publications is sort of like a magazine, with an extra adventure and some other things common to magazines....like advertisments.

The one with the munched upper spine was obviously placed upright in an open box with other game materials.  It got munched because both publications are about half an inch taller than standard modules.  Metrics?  Anyway...the munching is bad for collectors, but not for a gamer collector like me.

I have not seen Games Workshop anywhere on the publications, but it is obvious they come from the same people.  Does anyone know any of the details?
