Erm, don't YOU always search for as well... ?  :D



Comic Relief (also known as Red Nose Day) is a big comedy charity event in the UK.



I normally put a coupla hundred quit in, but its quite fun if you can bid on something interesting as well. This is vaguely tempting:


** expired eBay auction **




Mind, for a big fundraiser last year I got carried away and put £1500 on a day out at Everton Football Club  8O  Perhaps fortunately I didn't win it  :cry:

I always search for them, but never on eBay.   :D

OK, that explains things.   :D

No pic though.  :?


... and I like how the description skirts the issue of condition entirely.

I sent the seller a question about the condition and he has yet to reply.  Getting a bad feeling about it.

Of the people who buy B&B, how many have actually ever played it? It's fairly shite. Incidently, there is also a B&B scenario in one of the early FGU magazines, but I think it was the only one ever printed. There was also an associated story in Wargamer 1 by the author.

I just sent my own inquiry as well....

What is the condition of this item?
Do you have any pics you can post?
You could gain more bids for more money for this item with a condition statement and pics. Despite looking for one of these for years, I wont even bid for it without those.

Ironically, at least one person that played Bunnies & Burrows before trying other RPG games such as AD&D seem to think that AD&D is fairly shite.

The Comics Price Guide has it listed as $360,000 for mint.
$11,520 for fine and $3600 for good.
It is hard to grade from one picture and a brief description.

I had one in just about the exact same condition years ago. It should run around $4K.
That issue is known for chipping along the right cover edge.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Did you mean either of these articles?

"Different Worlds Present the World of Druid's Valley: A Bunnies & Burrows Campaign" by B. Dennis Sustare, Different Worlds #3, June/July 1979.

"Jackrabbits' Lair" by Daniel J. Maxfield. Pegasus #6, February/March 1982. Pg 69-70. [this is a brief scenario]

If not, I'd appreciate more info (particularly the title) of the other articles, which I haven't heard of. There's little published for B&B...

There was also an article in Dragon by the same author as the Pegasus scenario:

"Hop, Hop, Hooray: Variant rules for B & B" by Daniel Maxfield. Dragon #45, January 1981. Pg 58-59.

15 watchers so far, including one who started watching a few minutes after I listed the item.  C'mon, guys . . . it's no fun if no one bids.  :)



If you are interested in some lower-priced goodies, I have some lots of Carter Brown mystery novels going up on Saturday night.  The Carter Brown novels have some very interesting content that rivals that of Castle Zagyg, though in a completely different and unrelated vein.  Here is an example of deathless prose from a master of the mystery novel:



My arms encircled her, and I could feel the tautness within my body begin to swell into a single hard point of desire . . ."



--- from the inside front cover teaser text to Sex Trap



Remember, over 50,000,000 Carter Brown books in print!   :lol:

Hi,

I have a few Lost Worlds supplements in stock, all very cheap.

Don't shift at all.

Cheers,

Sure, but how many are Acaeum members just looking to see if it's time to sell?

My best guess is that the majority of 26 watchers are Acaeum members.  Collectors, speculators, and resellers who read the Acaeum make up the rest of the watchers.  Who else cares what the market is for these things?  Castle Zagyg:Upper Works doesn't mean anything to most gamers, so I don't see a random RPGer watching this item.



Nine days are left in my auction, and I imagine other copies will show up that end sooner than next Sunday night in the U.S.  For example, here's an opened copy with a BIN of $149.99 [Edit:  Sorry.  Not a BIN]:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **




How quickly that opened copy sells will reflect the demand for unshrunk copies.  My auction is different from other auctions, since my auction is for a srhinkwrapped copy and includes the 2007 C&C Quick Start Rules.  Does the Quick Start add $5 or $10, or does it add nothing?  Does giving to a charity affect the final price?  FWIW, 25% is going to the Christian Children's Fund.
