Hi all,

Saw this on Facebook - https://www.estatesales.net/NJ/Garfield/07026/1412712 - goodly number of gems in there it appears for grognards and board gamers (Shogun!, Conquest of the Empire, etc.) and some RPG material here and there.

Regards,
Old Man

Wowzers!

Wish I were there. I'm seeing a lot of cool stuff. World in Flames I had the chance to play. Took my cousin and I about 9 months, one day per week to finish (of course, we used a lot of optional rules). Looks like an early AH Gettysburg, some BECMI sets, old Atari games. Just wow.

Dunno what the purpose of photoing plastic bags is, though.  :)

Garfield NJ! That's what they based Valkenvania on in that horrible Chevy Chase film with Demi Moore back in '91.

There is a lot of cool stuff pictured there and one can only wonder what's really there

I watched the video and found myself getting pissed off at the way the camera person was just tossing stuff around. no idea what he/she have sitting there in front of them

that will probably be what happens to my stuff when I'm gone. Piled up in a room in haphazard stacks, and in black bags. sold to whomever

That movie is great. I actually have a copy on 16mm film that I have shown on Halloween.  :)

Wonder what is in all the ziplocs. I see Battle of the Five Armies. Probably some more gems. I see a copy of Fantasy General - loved that game.
I like photo number 8 of the two garbage bags
