I posted this in the Classifieds, but with 3 days left, still not a tickle and no watchers either.



Have I placed this




** expired eBay auction **




too high??  :?



Seems that there are a few other copies out there at much higher BINs.



Cheers for any advice.. If someone here wants a copy, I'm happy to sell via here rather than let ebay gouge their costs out of it....

I am pretty sure I got one of these for $10.00 in the shrink.  Not a sought after item

I purchased a complete set for $0.99 a few years ago and once my grandson was old enough I gve it to him and purchased another set for my shelf for around $5, plus shipping.
Seller did not tell in the listing but that second set was incomplete.
Ticked me off, but for 5 bucks I just let it go.

If someone has them BINed at over $10 (USD) then I would not even touch it.
And it is not worth the cost of shipping overseas.

I don't have one, but I'm in no rush to get one either.

One more thing I want to add.
I feel that this box set is very underrated as something to have and actually use.
Even though this set is designed for beginners, I think any Player/DM group would have some fun with it.

I really liked the adventures in that set and when I DMed the grandkids through them we actually used the CD and the other materials just as suggested in the instructions.
We had Lots of fun using that box.

Even for old Adventurers.... I would recommend to anyone who does not yet have it and if you actually play table top with a player group, to get this box set and use it sometime when you have nothing else to do for a day and need something that is easy and fast.
(As a DM, I would read it all at some point before running it on the fly though)

Colton liked it enough that he ran it for his home group as soon as he got home with it.

Ditto.  These are fairly common in shrink.

I wonder what the insides look like? :)

The problem is shipping cost. At 5£ several persons would be interested (I think) but if you have to add the shipping, no one is still interested :(

(I am not saying that your shipping is overpriced, just that postage in general is too expensive for this kind of item)

Price dropped.. oh well, if it goes ok, if not, I'll have onto it. It is kinda cool and as Gnat says, quite useful. Just don't need it or taking up space  :)

£2.50 + Postage, so I'm ok with that (bought it for less several months ago)  :)
