Nice! That's seven of the eight Dwarfstar games, BTW — only GravArmor is missing.



A minor warning: note that condition varies on those games. I clicked on three of them at random and got everything from "unpunched" all the way down to "no box." Not that the Dwarfstar boxes were anything other than glorified Milk Duds boxes, but still ...

Heritage Minigames.  The last set of Dwarfstar/Heritage auctions from went for a good price, so someone else dug his out:

Also the seller that put up all the Dwarfstar games last week has more of them up now:

eBay listings



Apparently the first round were his collectors copies.  He did so well that he decided to put his playing copies up.  :wink:   For my own sake I just hope that the auction prices on the last group of these is not indicative of what they normally go for and just an insane need for thefantasymuseum to win them all.  :evil:

Jump back! Those prices are way high, at least in my experience (but, admittedly, I don't track the microgame genre as much as I used to). But, still ... $154 is more than I paid for a near-mint, unpunched GravArmor, which is, believe me, one of the holy grails for microgame collectors.



In looking at the bid histories, I seem to sense a little "must-have syndrome" ... which is great for the seller, of course. :) Both of the games you linked to, though, can be had for 50-percent of that figure with a little patience and good luck.

Titan (already over $100   )


If you wait until there's about 4 or 5 of them listed at once you can typically get a nice copy for about $70-$80.

That's a really surprising high bid for DP, and there's still a few days to go.  My near mint unpunched copy of DP went for less than $50 as a comparison.

Well, I don't know if that range would fit a nice unpunched copy, which is what this seller is offering. Most of the copies I've tracked on eBay have been punched, and many of those still fetch astronomical prices.

Not that I have a huge stake in this either way, as Titan is one of those products whose appeal is completely lost on me. I mean, the damn thing takes 27 hours to play and has a rulebook only a patent attorney could love. Still, though, I wish I had about three copies to sell ... :)

First game took about 15 hours.. once you become experienced, about 4 hours :)

Not interesting. They printed about one billion of these. You can find dozens of them at any game convetion auction.



Although, it can be a fun game. How often do you get a chance to drop a nuke on bug hole?


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

That is nice bunch of games he is selling. They seem to be in good condition.

BTW I wish I had seen your auction. Dragon Pass has been on my To Buy list for ages

For a second, I was bummed I lost out on this Burgundy Pit:




** expired eBay auction **




But then I remembered I already had one.    :o



Finally got around to reading it last night.  Has anyone ever run it?  Supposedly, none of the tourney groups made it through alive.

Gotcha  :D.  No idea what it's really worth, but I'm having a bit of a run on tiles and floorplans at the moment and a tenner seemed about right.  Coolness.

You didn't do to bad on that.  They usualy run in the range of  5 to 10 GDP. :)

Decent.  They'll see plenty use, that's for sure.

Wouldn't it be cooler if Ebay auctions for D&D stuff was all in gold pieces?

Like, B1 could go for 10gp, and we could use US Sakagawea one dollar coins as universal currency.

I was on a crusade there for a while to make the Sakagawea dollar piece a standard form of currency.  By law, they have to accept it.
