Sorry if this treading over old ground but I couldn't find what I was looking for via the search tool.

RE: JG 88 Dark Tower

I was wondering...what would be a reasonable price for this item in Mint or VF condition?

Also, was a reprint ever issued?

I'm looking for 1-2 copies and I haven't had much luck.

TIA.

Well Al (Killjoy) may have some numbers on this or one of our various sellers on these boards.

As for printings there are 3 known: http://www.acaeum.com/jg/Item0088.html
As for the reprint, yes it was done for d20: http://www.acaeum.com/jg/JudgesGuildOtherCompanies.html

hey guys. dark tower is a funny one. i have seen prices go from about £10 up to about £30+ (will have to convert into $)...

mostly all prints sell well - cos its only collectors like us who tend to go for specific ones.

the high prices above tend to reflect the excellent condition ones. the worse condition, reduce $ accordingly.

you see a few fair ones cropping up that go for about $10-15 if youre lucky and patient.

trouble is they dont crop up an awful lot, so when they do you normally get a fair few ppl converging on them, but the odd one does slip through the radar!

hope this helps...i do have one here i will be selling but like its having the time n stuff. i dont seem to have the time to fart these days :)

Al

Hey yourself and Thank you!

That's exactly what I needed to know.

I'll try to flex my patience bone...but, when it comes to items I want, that's hard to do.

Yeah, that's always the tough part. And Dark Tower requires quite a bit of patience for a ~$12-15 price tag for a half-decent copy.

Fingers crossed a few copies might pop up first week in April, when Al's away on holiday ( viewtopic.php?t=3294 ).

Good luck!

Ah... I see what you mean; http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 8755578372



(Judging by the number of bids you place, the likes of http://www.bidnip.com/ might come in handy, I think... regardless of what Al says! ;))

btw thats not a "first edition" like the guy says, mint condition or not. check the JG listings to see what print it is but its defo not 1st...just checked mine here, which IS a 1st. mines not in mint thats for sure and three of the maps inside has felt/pencil on them. nothing bad like but prb knocks it right down to about VG but just being honest.



if youre interested in it, i can scan a few pages if you want (when i get 5 mins to do so)....and if youre interested just make us an offer and its yours.



and btw david...too tired to fart when i am running. after 15 miles you kinda dont have the energy chummer :)



*waves to everyone*



Al



ps. yeah get a sniping thingy. i like the good ol heart attack rush at the end, but hey thats me :)

Congrats & enjoy, btw; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8759370805 :)



Under normal circumstances I would have been bidding slightly higher (what with the "free shipping") and expected to fall short by a greater amount.

If you really want it and you are refreshing with seconds to go I reckon your heart rate doubles - maybe more.

Only a matter of time before we see the headline - "Unfit D&D collector dies at the keyboard" and they will be talking about how the game is bad for you (again). :)

They only need to go to a convention to see that :lol:
If I was in bad shape maybe I would be concerned, but till that time I say damn to the snipe programs I like to feel alive :wink:

Yes indeed!~

Thank you very much. I was pleasantly surprised with that total. Whoever laid off the hammer, extra thanks!

DT is one of the most awesome modules ever!~

How I missed this one for so long is beyond me...wait, I do know...you couldn't find it where I lived back in the day.

At any rate--once again...I thank the astute knowledge of this site's residents for pointing me in the correct direction.  :D

:D

With that sort of response, I'm very happy I didn't bid any higher- 'though I still need a playing copy.

Kudos to Mr. Jaquays & glad to hear your first impressions were somewhat positive, tiggy... :)

Well, me and my players thank you and the others. As Al likes to say, "it's ace!"

Love the avatar, btw!

Indeed, he does.

I'm currently hunting down CSIO, TM (the only JG I had ever possessed in the past) and CSWE. Any others I just need to get hold of? Anybody got extra copies of the above for sale?
