Let's hope Goodman has learned his lesson from the "60 copy print run" fiasco from 12.5.


Hahahah - yeah, you'll have to watch that budget a little closer this year, goatboy.  :wink:
Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as I would like buy several copies for my kids, gaming friends, etc.  

And yeah, I think Goodman Games will be packing more than 60 copies of each of these AD&D releases.  They'll still be in limited quantities, but I think GG will have that base covered pretty well.   :wink:

Any way you can let it leak just how limited they will be?  :twisted:

No.  Goodman Games doesn't release sales numbers or print run sizes to anyone, most especially to loose-lip types like me.   :wink:

I think it is safe to say that I wouldn't wait until Saturday afternoon to swing by the Goodman booth to grab your copies of these modules, if in fact you really want copies.   :wink:

Shrews, Bacon, Cheese, Sesame seed buns, and the occasional sliced pickle, all flying about as Mike breaks past the doorman as he unlocks the doors, arms pumping and legs flying as Mike rushes to the Goodman Booth to be the first to snag up copies of the latest First Edition items.

I can almost see it now.

Don't forget the ketchup! :D

I'm sure Al would have a snarky comment about the thought of me "running" anywhere....

Aneoth,

As someone who had the pleasure of watching Mike rip apart the exhibit hall last year, I can tell you that I kept myself behind him at all times.  I was just happy to pick up his leftover, thrown-aside crumbs.  

I remember last year, Al and I meet Mike and Johh (kingofpain) at their hotel an hour before the doors were scheduled to open.  Mike and John were planning their assault - Goodman games, Egor's, and then the Auction house side room.  We get to the exhibition hall and they are late in opening the doors.  We take our place in the throng of people (must have been about 2 thousand or more).  It got hot in the hall way and I and Mike and John were sweating (Al did not sweat - must be a British thing).  Balloons were being slapped around and stupid people were trying to move thru the crowd to get close to the door.  Mike's focus never wavered, his eyes never moved from the door - the doors opened and Al, myself, and John simply followed Mike thru the doors and into a great four day escape called Gencon.

Martin

Was not sure if you were a ketchup man, or mustard, or mayo, or all of the above.
Just be sure to wear comfortable running shoes. 8)

Just printed out a layout of the booths, and planning the quickest way there.

Also sending 'a few emails' to have those who might get there first 'way-laid'  :twisted:

We can do this whilst we're waiting for them to open... 8O  :twisted: :lol:

Less competition that way

Hard to find Must-haves:
3.5
20.5
17.5
#0 (convention edition)
12.5 (either 1st or 2nd printing, so far there doesn't seem to be any difference in what they are worth online, because people either don't understand or don't care about the subtle difference)

Look out for:
#30 Tournament Edition---just sold out, was a little pricey
The Heroes Arise---I suspect this was short printed; also, it contains 5 DCC modules but there is nothing to distinguish these from the regular modules, and the box set comes with no extra booklet like Saga of the Dragon Cult....so unless it's in the original SW, I don't even think this one should be considered collectible!
1st print/original cover/3E editions of  #1, #2, #5---other early modules were also available in 3E and 3.5, but I suspect the three I mentioned will be more sought after due to the different cover and/or different material
#35 Gazetteer box---this sure sold out fast.....!
EnWorld Journal module "My Friend the Formorian" (Can't remember which issue offhand)
#34 Cage of Delirium: Since it came with a CD, I suspect there will be less of these in "Mint/Near Mint" shape than others, I suspect a few people played the CD or actually lost/scratched it.
#39 Castle Churro/DM Screen: Ditto for this one, some might have bought it to use the screen, so probably less in NM/Mint shape than other modules in the series.

Just my guessing here....anyone have anything else?

Mike B.


A nice accurate list I would say.  I can certainly see everything here becoming more difficult to obtain over time.

I would point out:

DCC #13 Crypt of the Devil Liche - the 1st print has color interior illustrations.  The 2nd print was done in b&w.  This little fact might escape most people but might be a factor later when collecting the 3 DCC Gen Con Tournament Mods.

Cheers!

Laugh. True, that. You can find me by looking for the large man with the security uniform. He won't respond to "Goatboy," but trust me, that's me. ;)

Goodman's location isn't as good this year. Much further to the back. Hope this doesn't effect their sales.

I spent a bit of money with Goodman and it all turned up faster than I expected and in spanky condion.  Thanks Goodman! :P

Thanks for the info, Isle. I'll definitely start looking for the color version (apparantly I have the B&W version in my collection).

Well! What do you know.  Mine has color illustrations. :D  But not all the illustrations are done in color, right?  A quick glance indicated that about half were in color and the other half were B&W.  So, is the one with color interior illustrations rarer than the one with just B&W illustrations?  Or are they about the same rarity?  :?:   Thanks for pointing this out, I had no clue. 8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.
