Well I decided to continue going through all of my old RPG stuff and found a couple of things.

First is a box set "Squad Leader" by "The Avalon Hill Game Company". The outside of the box has some rubbing and wear. About 3/4 of the diecut counters have been punched and are in 4"x4" plastic zip-lock bags. The rest of the contents are in excellent condition.

The second item is "Azhanti High Lighting" by "Game Designer's Workshop". The outside of the box is in bad condition ( busted corners, lots of rubbing). The diecut counters have all been punched an placed in 4"x4' plastic ziplock bags. The booklets and maps are in excellent condition (looks like the box did it's job).

Anybody have some information they can share on these?

I am going to be posting these on eBay when I find some more info on them.

I also have a bunch of Judges Guild stuff that I will put on eBay when I finish researching them

:D Makes me happy every time I read things like this (plus maybe get some more data on prices :wink: )

As for the other stuff I think Squad Leader has had many ads in Judges Guild magazines if you have any of those.

Squad leader is fun war simulation game. You probably won't get much for it on eBay. They usually run from $5-$20. Oh.. you wanted more information than that?

All your gaming info should be available on that site.

I wouldn't let Squad Leader go for less than $15-25.

Azhanti High Lightning should get you $35-50, even if the counters are punched.  

Make sure to sell internationally, as always, for the best chance of getting these prices.

Azhanti High Lightning is one of the Traveller games (though you likely already knew that), as such you should be able to get a decent price for it -- especially if, as it is by the sounds of it, Traveller Supplement 5: Lightning Class Cruisers is still present.

Bit more info, but not much, at the Traveller wiki: http://traveller.wikia.com/wiki/Azhanti_High_Lightning and BoardGameGeek: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/6282

The worn box doesn't really count, since the seller makes no mention of the contents (much less show a picture).  It could be incomplete (and very, very likely it is).



The first box set also has a seller too lazy to actually count the counters.  In any case, if he had started his auction as $15.00 and sold internationally, it would have gotten that price - if not on this listing, then on one or two relists.  I would have sold it for $25.00 and gotten it within a couple of months - He brings down the average and good sellers bring it up!  :D

Pretty much -- a lot of the 2nd tier AH games can get you around 20 bucks if you're persistent and/or clever. I suppose I was looking at things from a buyer's perspective. Having followed this game for the last year or so, I know you can pick up one in good shape very cheaply if you're patient.

If it's a 4th edition, I'd be interested in the Squad Leader game... if you want to save yourself some ebay fees.

The Squad leader is a fourth edition and the Azhanti High Lighting has Supplement 5 Booklet, it also has the original Mailing List card (grin)

It looks like all of the Die-cuts are there. I think I am going to count them this weekend.

I just need to get off my lazy rear. I have a small stack of original Star Wars stuff to list with the rest of my RPG stuff.
