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.


I inadvertantly started an Avalon Hill collection in the late 80's, buying them for 99 cents at Goodwill.

Wowza squared!!!

I know its rare, popular, and all that.  But for $199 at least provide a tube of vaseline or KY to go along with it.  I dont think the last one I saw cracked $100.  And with over 400 pages I know it is heavier than your standard sourcebook but should it really take $14.50 to ship standard flat rate?  :?

I don't recall seeing Shootout, but their Ace of Aces occasionally goes in the $60-$70 range.

Congratulations on the great deal! I just had a look at Noble Knight and they have one listed for $40.00. It looks similar to Ace of Aces so it could be a fun little game.  :D

The image is very, very dark.  He looks like he's skulking through the night looking for some other minis to beat up.

I really like some of the Arduin supplements (great spells and some cool tables, etc.), but I never saw any of their dungeons (modules) at the hobby shops back in the day. I have no idea what they might go for :roll: , but this seems like a crazy starting price 8O even though most of his other items are not insanely priced.
