For anybody who remembers the Dark Tower game, this is the most complete one I've seen on Ebay in a while.  The tower doesn't work apparently, but all the pieces are there and in good shape.  I can only imagine what this will end up going for:

Yeah, he lowered his price after seeing what the shrinked one went for.



So now I'll have the shrinked one and can sell my extra to John for an even more reasonable price than that.  Everybody wins.  Well, everybody here anyway.   :wink:

Yeah, and the listing says this:

The object of the game itself is to amass an army, collect three keys to the Tower and defeat the evil within. It can be played with 1 to 4 players. This is the ultimate role playing board game [which I think is better than dungeons & dragons!]




8O  HERESY!   :evil:

Dark Tower was a great game for its day! I have a minty copy and played it once recently with a childhood friend and it was fun. I think it will play better with non jaded kids. It was a game I didn't get as a kid and longed for it for quite awhile :wink:

Dark Tower rocks!  I had the game as a kid and my brother and I played it to death.  I wish I had kept our copy.  

I'd love to own it again but a working game is just out of my price range right now.

I wish they'd re-release it.

My whole group of friends was upset when I got one instead of the d&d books and modules I had asked for and that we all wanted!  Then we moved a couple of weeks later anyway and it had to go in storage where it was lost!  I remember taking it out of the box and fooling with it but never getting to play a complete game.  Bah!  I had no idea they were this desirable now though!

meh... I am not going to jump on the love wagon here.



I have had a few sets of Dark Tower over the years and played it with the grandkids.

Yes, it was a good game, but we had more fun with Tower of the Wizard King and that game can be had for far less money and it is harder to find.



I have seen litterally hundreds of copies of Dark Tower (on E-Bay) over the years and only a few copies of Tower of the Wizard King (anywhere).

You can look on E-Bay at any time and find a few sets of Dark Tower listed and at least a few other listings for parts etc..

I sometimes see a single copy of Tower of the Wizard King and often it is listed in the $25-$35 range...



Like this one.

BIN of $24.99 with 99.9% complete and wear on the box.

Missing 2 of the tiny plastic yellow flags, which I can tell you is not important at all and the game can be played without those 2 missing little yellow flags....




** expired eBay auction **




Looks like the Canadian Edition.... and sadly it is in Canada (bummer :(  shipping is like $36 USA))

If it was in the USA I would have already BINed it myself just to have a copy of the Canadian Edition.



There is no Light up Tower though. :oops:  8O  :roll:



BoardGameGeek



The one linked above at BoardGameGeek dot com is the Canadian Edition, I have the USA Edition which does not include the French Title at the lower left of the box top.... and on the wall (Right side in the pic).

I am sure the instructions are also in two languages, or perhaps only in French.



I wish they would re-release Tower of the Wizard King more than Dark Tower and if you loved Dark Tower, then I would look for a copy of Tower of the Wizard King and hope you can find one.

It wont set you back a weeks pay (More like Lunch money with a couple of beers) and (IMO) it is more fun to play.

I think I understand where you are coming from.  I had a Dark Tower growing up and it was a blast to play even though the first time my brother and I played we goofed up the instructions and ended up playing for about two hours before we realized we were doing it wrong.  :lol:

Fast forward to a few years ago.  I sat down and played the game again with you and your grandson and although it was enjoyable to set the game up and recollect all of the fun I had as a kid, it is not much fun anymore.  There is little challenge, no real strategy, and very little replayability.  But it does have a gorgeous box, gameboard, and game pieces...not to mention a cool looking black tower.  :D

I wouldnt mind having one again just for nostalgia purposes but I would never pay the prices they are going for nowadays especially since the majority of them dont work and are missing pieces.

Yes, I do remember playing Dark Tower with you and Colton.
It was fun for me too, but as you said..... I agree on the low level of strategy of Dark Tower.

Much more of that in Tower of the Wizard King and parts of the strategy in that game were obvious even to my two older grandkids (10 and 12) and Brandon also played and he was only 5 years old at the time.
The grandkids and I ended up playing three straight games the first time we played Tower of the Wizard King.
The first game we used the quickstart instructions and though it is fun, the more complete game is better.... 8)

Well, it seems that my $15.95 bid has fallen short.  :cry:

Good to know that the ultra-rares are going down in price.  :wink:
