Hi all,

what does the 1st print worth? This one, in EX condition

And how much for the more common FGU version? In EX uncut condition. There is one at NKG but in Fair condition.

Thank you!

That's the first Gametester's version I've seen, so I couldn't say what it's value would be. I'd guess not a huge amount, maybe $50.

I have an FGU version in excellent condition I picked up for $25 a couple of years ago, and I imagine the price wouldn't have changed much since then.

Regards

Mike

Thanks!

I can't remember any copy for sale on ebay, so I have no clue of a market value. It took me years to find one copy, but I have decided to re-focus my collection on non-wargames/boardgames. Selling all this kind of stuff will help in relationship with my bank officer :)

Here are a few pictures of my copy of the Fantasy Games Unlimited Version.
It is also un-cut as you can see, but the plastic binder simply broke in half from being so brittle.
This one is in fair to good condition with a small circular burn mark on front cover (See middle near right edge) small dinged up corner (top right) throughout.
Slight water damage to rear cover which caused some red ink to bleed from the cover onto the last sheet of the booklet.

This was the First game ever published by FGU that had previously been published by another company.

I paid $4.95 (USD) plus shipping for this copy...
Though shipping costs were spread out over three items total.

Yes, it seems that FGU version is pretty easy to find. I own 2 copies in Mint condition.

No one owns a Gametesters version?

I think I might have one - or maybe you outbid me and won the one you have.

Yes. I'd've thought $5-10 personally, but hey...
