The auction stated that the World Emperor was incomplete but it not only looked complete to me but seemed to have an extra map.

Ah well, close enough to see it listed, but not to catch the buy it now.


Yeah I saw those - too late! Nice pick up.

Have you received it yet? Do you know if it is a 3rd or 4th print. Just asking as I am monitoring the values of this item.

I noticed bracton (same bracton as here?) picked up a nice looking Citadel of Fire



If it is you, I'd be curious to know if it is a first or second print. I have not yet seen a confirmed 2nd print. They seem to be quite rare.

Not yet. I'm hoping it has all the maps.

Wow, cool. You guys made me check my Temple of Ra, and I discovered it is a 1st print. Woohoo! Only paid $6, too.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Yep, that would be me.  It is a second print (the Judges Guild List goes to 80).  I had no idea the second prints were more rare.  And all for $10.   :)

Nice Haul

Does the Tegel SW have a sticker at all like this auction? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0296928455

It Sure Does. However, that's why I wasn't sure if it was the original shrink wrap, or some sort of (other) platic bag.



It doesn't feel like shrink wrap material, if that makes sense...



By having the sticker on the bag, what extra provenance (if any) does it give the set?

City State of the [me]?? looks like own most of jg now :) :)
agreed nice haul. disappointing final price after asked for extra details but other auctions made up for that
label not essential but helps identify plastic wrap for the period ;) ;) as is open others could be put inside so already maxxed with tegel
more difficult is slightly earlier with plastic wrap such as csio before jg added the label but can identify from other contents

Took a chance on this (no pic) but it came out okay.  The booklet has the "Ende" mark on the back.  So nice find for the money.

Was debating as well, especially it not having a bid till the end.

Glad knowing it went to someone from here.

I was soooo tempted myself, like Plaag watching it down to the wire (well, the last 30 minutes or so). But right now is not the best time for "collecting" type purchases.



Also, like Plaag, glad to know that "one of us" got it. Gooble-gobble.

Is it just me or does it look more like an amphibious goat?

I was watching it all week and forgot to bid.  Good for you LucyJoyce.  I was expecting a crushing bid from you know who.
