Damn Frank, maybe you should have hung on to it. Just think you could have sold it off to Troll and Toad now for $10K and they would still be in line for well over $3k in profit. :D  What a bunch of morons. :roll:

I think I paid close to that or more from the copy I bought from burnie bros a while ago.

I also shelled out $600 for one once, but that came with a PoVQ.   :D

Well regardless....still a bit on the high side with the opening bid of $99.  I have noticed that this particular seller tends to put the opening bid on his auctions much higher than the average end price...especially on MERP items over the last three months.  Most of those auctions have run their course with no bidders.  A week later he has put them back up with considerably lower starting bids.

That's about what they go for nowadays, last time I checked. It's a pretty pricy game.

I find it astounding. Even Titan, one of the most popular early titles only goes for $80-100.

I guess this shows the power of the internet. A lot of people rave about the game on sites like board game geek. Good ratings. A lot of people want it and demand outstrips supply. It is a remarkable price for a relatively recently published game.

Well its oop, so its rare  :)

There weren't a lot of them made but AdvCiv, RoR, AoR, CvR etc. all go for a lot of money primarily because they are by far the best games that Avalon Hill ever published. I think this was acknowledged before the Internet. The 'net probably has boosted awareness, but still games like Titan only score a 7.3 on boardgame geek, for instance.

While most AH war games sell for relatively low dollars, many strategy war games from the 70s and 80s have consistenly gone up in value. Most SPI games run solid with many topping out at more than $100 consistently. Crazy thing is that in the late 80s you could pick them up at most convention auctions for $5-10.



Even those crappy TSR/SPI boxed games are now selling for $30++. Two years ago you could get them for next to nothing.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
