While filling in holes in my collection (read: I don't play Runequest), Duck Tower was one that took a while to find.  I remember paying more than for most JG adventures, but that price seems crazy high.

This is the 3rd, 3rd print "Of Skulls and Scrapfaggot Green" I have seen. The first went for 99 cents, the second went for $2.25. The third went for $35.99

I think its price is increasing exponentially!

I watched ebay for months looking for that one, lost a lot of auctions with it going for $30+. Then I lost patience & spent an hour looking through Google searches for it. A copy had been sitting for who-knows-how-long in Fine Games' low-tech online store for $3, along with a yellow-cover Apple Lane for the same price.

That seems to be the main problem with eBay's new Shiller Protection Program.
Loss of confidence from buyers who think that an auction is being shilled.
This will also hurt honest sellers when a newbie shows up.
Perhaps there should be a setting on auctions to allow the seller to set a minimum feedback level that is permitted to  bid.
I know there is one to block bidders with negative feedback.

Yeah who knows nowadays, could be a reseller or someone who wants people to avoid the auction due to the thought of a shiller, etc.  Course I think there will be snippers for this auction.

Which is why it is wiser to snipe rather than toss on bids.

Wiser still, would be for eBay to institute "popcorn" bidding.  That is where bids placed within the last few minutes of an auction closing extends the auction by 10 minutes or so.  This accomplishes two things.  1) it nullifies people who are using sniping software and 2) insures that the seller truly gets the highest bid.

That would be good for Ebay...not for us snipers.  :?

Sniper programs would then be set to snipe according to the new rules. There would still be sniping.

One thing I really like about sniping is that I set it for exactly how much I am willing to pay and then walk away.

If I later decide that I don't want to bid, I just cancel the snipe with no one else caring anything about it.

That way, it is impossible for a shiller to bump me up artificially.

It is also impossible for Ebay to tell everyone else what I'm bidding on.

If I were a seller, I would hate sniping because it discourages impulse bidding.  As a buyer, I love it.

Nice price on the Dungeoneer Compendium Jason. I've been watching this and the highest I've seen it go for before your $10.50, was $4.04!

For some reason these sell very well. I think I'm sold out on them and they've gone for as high as $15 ( $24 seems silly to me too).

A long time ago, I actually made him what I figured were reasonable offers on this and another item.  As I recall, his counter offer for this one was $22.50.  I'm not surprised to see that he still has it.  I later found one NM from Noble Knight for $9.95, I think.

These often appear on Ebay in the $3 range.

I always ask $9.99 and they always sell, but I don't charge shipping. If I could get them at $3 apiece in bulk I'd stock up on them.

I made an offer of $11.50 and he countered with $20.5. I declined.

If any of you have one for less larcenous prices please let me know, otherwise I guess I will wait for a resonable price to appear on E-Bay.
