well at £5 it was a good price.

i've never yet had a bad item, nor one misdescribed (whether as to content or printing) from cougar, and even factoring shipping it's the best value available.

most of the acaeum members i know in the UK have bid on his items.

Unfortunately this circumstance seems restricted to UK members.  American members have had plenty of misdescribed items (no maps being high on the list), high unstated shipping prices, and many, many, MANY lost M-Bag shipments whose contents mysteriously turn up in Cougie's store months later, no explanation offered or given to the American seller whose paypal payment has been charged back by Cougie.  
  I believe Coug is reluctant to raise too much ill-will among his Euro mates...#1, they live close enough to actually hunt him down and do damage, and #2, it's always "OK" to rip off a foreigner to a lot of these type of guys, it's like if they are across the pond they don't seem to really count, it's happening "far away"and who cares if some dumb American bloke pays $50 shipping fora module?

If you'll notice the current high bidder is one sir_lance_u_alot_sales.  I think some of the resellers here ought to bid up the price on her just for laughs.  :twisted:

I asked Cougar about shipping for this item.  I wondered if he would reply...hey...maybe I'd take a risk.

No reply.   8O


i asked as well, since it was a mikdemia item... i wrote him: "dear dave, i can think to participate if only you are going to apply the real S&H for the item here above"...
i got as reply: "S&H is 5 pounds, it is up to you if you want to bid!"

Pretty rare...

And yes...it is a Troll and Toad auction so it is a bit overpriced.

It's stupidly rare, but $2K is a little high.  And if it really is "Near Mint Condition Softcover", then who knows if it is genuine.

Hmmmph . . . "The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale."  So who bought it, and for how much?

These copies are from the same source that has been putting up the Near Mint copies on Ebay for the last couple of years.

Battle of the 5 armies




** expired eBay auction **




Not particularly interesting but for the sellers added comments - his pleading tone convinced me to put a bid in!


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

That whole listing # of watchers to get more bids always surprises me..does it even work, or are people put off by it or actually put in a bid early on?

Here's a list of I.C.E. published boardgames (not sure how complete it is though):

In the seller's comments:

Being the seller, I obviously want to get as much money as possible but there are 11 of you watching this item so if you all try to rush in at the last minute some people are going to be disappointed and will likely have been willing to pay more than the final bid. Not the best outcome for neither the unsuccessful bidder or me!

Get bidding!


What a tool. That has to be one of the most idiotic things I've seen someone put in their auction.
