Hi all, wanted to get some opinions on what people think the following item is worth:   Entertainment Concepts Inc AD&D Play By Mail The Talaran Challenge Made in 1985  Anyone have a opinion on its worth? Its a very rare but obscure item so not people know about it. I would price it at 60-70. Anyone agree? Too high?

Hi Mkman,  I have a copy of the play by mail game in shrink. I havent seen another one or heard anyone else talk about it till now. I couldnt venture a guess at the price because of that.

Heya Michael (chromaticknight). Would you venture a guess at the value of the item? Your not the only person who knows of the item and has the item :-) I may have to send Adrian a copy as he showed me a picture of it and first told me of it.

Hi Mike,  As with any of the items the price will depend on the interest from the bidders. I could see it going for around 50 or so. I just hate trying to guess what an item will go for without seeing any ones previously sold. I would never assume that I was the only one with a copy of an item, lol .

Hi Michael, I would think the obscurity of the item would affect its value. Maybe when it gets more recognition and more people know and want the item, the value of it may skyrocket.  How long have you had yours for and were did you find your copy?

You got it two years ago....I bet you got it at a great price :-)  Sine you have owned it for about 2 years, any extra information you can provide about it? How many there are, how it was distributed, etc.  The picture Adrian provided me of your copy showed a price tag meaning it was probably sold at stores?   If you can add more input on this item, pls do Michael.

Unfortunately, I dont have any more information than that. It is still in shrink and the price tag doesnt have any type of store name or logo. It does have a cost of $4 per turn on the back. As far as how many were made/ distributed, I have no idea. I saw it, didnt have it, so i bought it. :D
