You're welcome! Did the photos, scans etc. add much? And same with the articles; I mean did you try to read the tiny print in those articles? For me, I'd have to take off my glasses and hold 2" from my nose!

I'm considering a couple of new projects but will let you know if they get to a point of imminent release.

I take the history of the hobby very seriously so I did read every little snipit :)   I really got a good feeling about the excitement you guys must have felt as everything fell into place.  A real grass roots story about one of the most popular entertainment mediums of the day.


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

The photos and scans add useful information to the stories.  Certain things (Woody, the psychedelic Playboy bag, game notes and maps) are impossible to describe with words.  The color is also necessary, even for the monochrome items.  I wish the photos and scans could have been larger, though that would have increased the page count and broken up the flow/cohesiveness of the articles.

Nitpicking: The book is nearly free from typos.  I found one place where the singular "stand" is used instead of the plural "stands".  Some commas are missing in places.  And that's all I can find to nitpick.  :)

The book is a great read that is amusing, informative, and touching.  Thanks for making an honest, down-to-earth recollection of Judges Guild.

** expired eBay auction **


I suspect that this isn't going to be picked up from the individual selling, but is that shrink wrap or good old UK cling flim....  :lol:

Hmm. I wonder how that goes with meatloaf:

Like a rat on a stick I'll be gone when the morning comes.
When the night is over, like a rat on a stick, I'll be gone, gone, gone.
Like a rat on a stick I'll be gone when the morning comes.
But when the day is done
and the sun goes down
and the moonlight's shining through.
Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you.

Just had another look at the item and there are 3 up for grabs! Now surely to have 3 SW still is rare, or takes an amount of wrapping...  :lol:

That's the correct SW and they are not that rare.

i've bought more than most from cougar and i've always received the items as photographed. If it's been described as SW then it comes in all its crinkly JG SW glory

I've never had a problem buying from Cougie either. Always received my items well packages, quickly shipped and as described. He's always been a good communicator with me also.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Please note that everyone here who has not had a problem with Cougie has one glaring item in common (HINT:  They do not have US addresses).  Cougie is a piece of shit, but he's smart enough not to crap where he eats....all his more egregious sins seem to fall upon his American buyers/sellers, not his countrymen.  If you're in the UK you are probably ok dealing with him (doesn't want any irate buyers showing up on the doorstep of his hovel); if you are from the US, I'd just pass him buy and purchase anything you need from an American source rather than take any chances....It's not worth the chance of being BLOCK WIPED.

Mike speak truth.

I've never personally had a problem with DM Dave - as a buyer or a seller; but Mikes point about US ebayers (sellers and buyers) has been proven time and again I'm afraid.


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

given the new exchange rate that means 1c for a module and 2c postage :roll:

Thanks for the comments everyone. I wanted to mention that the "coffee table" version of the book will have larger versions of photos/scans in many cases. Sometimes though the scans were already maxed out and so not all will be larger.

There was practical maximum page count on the booklet at 36 pages... but with 40 hardbound pages and 50% more page real estate, should make a difference.

I don't expect to sell many because the cost of 11x13" hardbound books via print on demand is rather excessive but figured "why not give it a shot?"! Maybe I'll be the only with a copy! And then I'll have to buy a coffee table! And learn to drink coffee...

PS the hardbound book is likely to go through blurb.com and so possibly instead of ebay, it's safest to look for it at Bill Owen, Judges Guild's co-founder

Would also be interested in a PDF purchase.

In case I didn't already say... I am planning to have a pdf version of the letter-size edition but not the coffee table version. It will be up at Bill Owen, Judges Guild's co-founder either shortly or late January... LL and his amazons are going to Costa Rica early in January!
