Ok, so it's technically not an auction price, but I have several items on my Half.com wishlist in case they pop up there...Half.com notifies me and I can buy them if I want to. They have a feature where you can automatically buy something no matter what the price....several very over optimistic sellers try to take advantage of this.  I defy anyone to find higher prices anywhere in the world on any medium for these following items:

Beyond the Mountains of Madness: An Epic Campaign and Sourcebook The Starkweather-Moore Expedition of 1933-34 (Paperback, 1999)
Author: Charles Engan, Janyce Engan

Best Price: $258.88
List Price: $39.95

Delta Green: A Call of Cthulhu Sourcebook of Modern Horror and Conspiracy from Pagan Publishing (Paperback, 1997)
Author: Adam Scott Glancy, Dennis Detwiller, John Tynes

Best Price: $1,817.50
List Price: $27.95

I feel cheated, Isold my last Delta Green for about $60.  I left $1700+ on the table!!!!!

Ouch  8O  

We have a similar website in France, where prices are completely insane. One of main reason is that this website takes at least 20-30% of the selling price for their fees... is it the same with this website?

Did crazyegor blow a gasket?  I know these dont normally go for small change but that starting price is just a bit on the "what the hell is he thinking?" side of things.

I suspect that he might get his asking price.

Actually, referring to the brief discussion on the 'interesting items' thread on how expensive Amazon is for RPGs, check this out:




** expired eBay auction **




Two guys have been going head to head on any FASA Dr.Who stuff listed on Australia Ebay. The book 'The Hartlewick Horror' went for over $42 on ebay, yet is available second hand on Amazon for $15. I still think when buying, it is important to check all possible purchasing sources.

Mike, I could trade you one of these, if you're OK with a slightly torn cover?  I'm still looking for Bio One and some other early non-D&D TSR titles....

Check out Chaosium's website.  They are issuing special editions of some classic Call of Cthulhu publications, and some of you might be interested.

If you purchase from their website rather than a retailer, beware that their estimated shipping times are usually 'optimistic'.

I purchased their hardcover release of Beyond the Mountains of Madness to run as a campaign for some friends this winter. My purchase date was September the 13th and after nagging them with a few email I received a message from Fergie the Shipping Shoggoth on November 1st that he had just packed my order and it would be shipped on the 2nd.

Today is the 8th and I am still eagerly awaiting its arrival. (Always delays on items crossing the Canada/US border).

The only item I have ordered directly from Chaosium took two months and two lost orders to get.

No harm done...it's only paper.

They tossed in a couple of T-shirts by way of apology.  I have an Arkham Fire Department T-shirt hanging in my closet....too small for me and too cool to give to the kids.

I get the idea that Chaosium is as fallible as anyone else in gaming.

Crikey!  Troll & Toad has outdone themselves!  A $13,987.49 BIN on a SINGLE MTG card...




** expired eBay auction **




That makes a $2,060.05 Tsojonth seem like a real bargin.





I know nothing about MTG but doing a quick comparison search turns up



$99 BIN


** expired eBay auction **




4 for $49.95

Another set of 4 for $49.95

Big difference between the Arabian Nights ones and the Summer Magic one. That one is quite rare. Not nearly worth $13K though.

Go Troll and Toad!  Ring it up, baby!

I hope they get the cash!
