I got my copy by hanging about and bidding my $21 price until I won.  It's amazing how long these sets have been on sale....years now.


I got mine at Gencon for $3.00 per copy, I remember when they went for over $100 per set.  He must have 100's of sets :?

I'm sure he has already sold hundreds of these sets too.  I have probably bought about 8 sets myself.  My general strategy is to get in a bid on an auction for around $25 or so.  He then often makes a second chance offer so even if you didn't win the auction he may offer to sell it to you for $25.  The packages he sells now no longer include one of the advertising sheets (so he has final run out of 1 of the items).

The difference in printings in noticable on the back so you don't need to take it out of shrink - I think one has a product number and the other does not (but would have to double check).

My 2 copies have the product code. I got it from NKG few years ago (IIRC) with the flyer. Product code indicates a 2nd printing so?

I managed to find 1  of my copies and it has the product code in bottom left and isbn in bottom right.  I know the other print is missing one (or possibly both of those items).  Both came from NK in their packages - I'm not sure they have ever notice the printing difference.

Previous copy just over $10; and the one before just under? Not that I'm watching in particular, mind you.

True, rare but not sought after. I am not looking for it particularly, but I didn't remember an auction recently on ebay. Perhaps one or 2 years ago?

I am still looking for a plain black box version though.

I noticed at least 3 different prints of the box set, with some differences Manifesto book as well.

What interests me is the idea of an adventure that is "vintage 1987."

In my mind, 1987 was so late to the vintage RPG party that the lights were already off.

It depends where you live :) in France, 1987 is definitely vintage.

No worries. I'm actually leaving for the US tomorrow until Tuesday. Taking my eldest to see her college choices. She's ecstatic; me, not so much. Tuition, see?  :cry:

Good price if everything pictured is in decent shape with the maps, but I'd check with the seller first before bidding.

Hey Jason,



Thanks for the heads up on the auction. :)



Looking at the details I can see that Angmar is missing the center map. :(



Might bid anyway for the Isengard :)



Best regards,

Ronald
