You'll need to upload the pics to somewhere, and then link to them here using the [img] tags.  If that doesn't make sense, then you can email them to me and I'll put them up for you.   :wink:

I read somewhere that these tend to fall apart if you actually use them


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

This one I think is from Marvel.  There is another Annual as well - I think its the 1986 one and also a comic or two with the cartoon characters.

After a long, long period where such toys were impossible to find, the last two weeks saw a flurry of activities on eBay.it and I got some Ljn toys (Italian carded, that was the hard part...). I'm really happy  :D

More toys coming soon. I was unsure if the Italian language Fortress of Fangs ever existed, but the answer seems being YES  8)  I feel like a child again  :wink:

Pinball game, Pinball... are you joking?

If you didn't have that :...


The D&D pin is actually very difficult. The action is very fast compared to any other pinball game I've ever played. So if you buy it, you may just want to look at it because it does look very nice.

Some details about the game can be found here:

I know someone in DFW who owns it and might be open to offers.

Has anyone seen WoTC employee tie tacs or lapel pins selling recently?  I've seen a 5 year gold pin of the Wizards logo and a ten-year gold and diamond tac, also of the logo, but was curious to the value and sales history.

But seriously, someone needs to make a site for all of this stuff.

Picked most of it up years ago on Ebay when few collectors were interested in this type of stuff. The Kitsch/licensed items are always cool to display in your collection.

I think we have at least one more mug. They aren't TSR but were sold through Dragon Magazines in the early years. I know for certain that we have a Dwarf one. Just keep a watch on our items and we will get around to listing it.

Is this by chance a mug by Merit?  They had reddish coloured pictures on a white mug.  Others in the series include unicorn, enchantress, wizard, hafling, dwarf, and dragon.

Couple of articles from The New York Times, an operation of mathematical probability called 'the Monty Hall problem:'

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/08/science/08monty.html
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/08/science/08tier.html

Why did they choose the name? It's similar to 'monty hall' dungeons, where random PC choices determine the game rather than good strategy.

It seems logical that 70s players would use the reference, as the game show host was then at the height of his popularity. For mathematicians to use it today, they must be remembering the D&D usage.

The mathematic problems refer directly to the game show host, not via D&D.  In the first sentence, they reference "Let's Make A Deal!" (the show of which Monty Hall was host), and the entire problem is about what is the most favorable decision for a contestant to make on the show.
