Howdy, I've been looking for a set of dungeon & outdoor geomorphs ever since I gave my own set away to a friend of mine many years ago and I just located some on ebay.  I am assuming that are pretty hard to find, at least because I have been looking for some for what seems forever & this may be the first sets that I have been able to locate while looking. Anyone happen to know exactly how hard these things are to find? For reference, here is the auction. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8823318942



Any input would be appreciated.

Me...I hope they are not too hard or at least not too expensive.  :roll:

If you find a set, you are most likely gonna pay. Expect $75 range for a clean set.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

All my geos will be going soon. I've never used them, so I can't justify keeping them.

Same here. Over the last 6 years, I've only seen a handful of the Dungeon Geomorph Sets 2 and 3 come up (complete) and have never managed to snag one for a reasonable price (for me, about $20).

Some day, I'll probably break down and go begging in the Classifieds. Some day. But not today (said in my best Klingon voice).

Ok, I hate to give up my trade secrets, and this might not be one of them. Watch for old D&D basic sets. Every so often they will be thrown in with the Holmes box set. Although, I have to say, I have never got my hands on an Outdoor set that way.

Hi, I have posted my Geomorphs and M&T assortments on eBay and have gotten an offer for all 3 Geomorphs of $72. I am not a fan of halting an auction once it has started. Although, the offer came from someone who is the highest bidder on all 3 currently. Does $72 sound reasonable (plus shipping)? To see the condition, just go to the listing under dcbyrd. Thanks.

Nice condition, even allowing for those hole punches: wouldn't be surprised to see a bit of swapping around on cover sheets, etc.
A bit on the cheap side given that, IMO, but your call: would need to be careful with eBay on ending to highest bidder, of course... and given that you're likely to have other bids incoming now. :)

To answer your question it depends on condition.
I was not able to find your listings...

Now on to the matter of my opinion of your statement above.
If he/she (the so-called Highest Bidder Currently...) was the ONLY bidder, then I see no relevant reason not to change them to Buy It Now listings...
Or if you really wanted, to end them all and sell them all off-line (Against E-Bay policy, but if no other bidders, I have no problems with it myself).

BUT If he/she was only the highest bidder out of more than one....?
Did you concider the OTHER bidders before ending those listings early?
The other bidders would (I think) have an E-Bay dispute case against you if there were others.

Thanks for the fast replies.  I took care to keep the pages with the correct covers.  I do not think they have been swapped.



Here is one link:




** expired eBay auction **




I also have issue ending an auction after bidding has started if others have bid.  Mainly interested in the value.

I also saw the link to the values on this page, but those values were from ages ago.

I am not one of the sharper Internet/E-Bay Guys here, so I was unable to find anything with just your name...

Was about to do a search of Geomorphs when I saw your last post.

THANKS for the link...



Looking at your pics, I think $72 is cheap for all three Dungeon Geo sets combined but it was not an insulting offer.

For me, the first set being partly hole punched brings that sets collectable value down, but the other two sets look good to me.

I suspect that your listings will net a good amount more though.

If your listings are allowed to run as is.

Thanks for the info.  I think I am not going to stop the auction.  I appreciate all the quick responses.

Any idea how to confirm which pages belong to which cover sheets (besides the caverns)?

Thanks for inquiring first. You have plenty of time on your auctions, and I think the $70 is on the low side as the others have said. I'm guessing you'll wind up over $100 for all three geomorphs, but it is hard to guage with the economy.

As Gnat said, the three-hole punches may keep the value down.

[Edit 1:  OK, the Geomorphs are currently going for a combined total of $99.60  :oops: ]

Glad to see this.  IMHO this is a low move, and I think you will do better keeping it running.  I would not go so far as to say the offer is an attempt to screw you, as it would not be a total shock for the auction to end under 70, but if I were to bet, I would bet the over.

Already over 70... ;)

Just by looking at your pics:
All of your Geomorph sets have both front and rear covers.
They also include FOUR seperate Blue colored Geomorph sheets in each set (They are all blank on the reverse?).

Each set will have a total of Five BLUE Geomorph sheets if you count the reverse side of the front covers.

As you stated and I agree; I have little doubt that your Set Two: Caves & Caverns is complete as the Geomorphs in that set could not be confused with Dungeon Geomorphs because those sets have smoothly lined Hallways, and angular rooms instead of the roughly cut tunnels and walls of Caves and Caverns.
Sets one and two MIGHT be mixed up... but I suspect (together if not seperately) that they are indeed complete.

Set One: Basic Dungeon.
The Front cover is a red lettered sheet with the title, etc.
With a BLUE Geomorph sheet (see below) on the reverse.
The rear cover is a red lettered sheet with instructions and keying your levels advice statement.
The front and rear covers are Purple and Brown for Geos 2 and 3 (respectively).
The reverse side of the rear covers (for all three sets) have blue typed instructions on the reverse.

Each set also includes FOUR additional sheets with BLUE colored Geomorphs on one side and blank on the other side.
I am fairly certain that that set up is standard with each set.
On the inside of each BLUE Geomorph sheet, at approximately even spacing (from sheet to sheet) you will find large block letters (in caps).

Interior Sheets..
Blank on one side with Blue Geomorphs on the other side.
First sheet has a Blue Geomorph with the letters A B C
Second sheet has a Blue Geomorph with the letters D E F
Third sheet has a Blue Geomorph with the letters J K L
Fourth sheet has a Blue Geomorph with the letters M N O
The reverse of the front cover has a Blue Geomorph with the letters G H I

If your Set One and Set Three have more and/or less than the Lettered sheets listed above, then they are mixed up.

Your listings are nearing the prices I suspected for your sets two and three.
IMO: your set One will also do very well for its condition.
I think (umnn I Know) the prices are being affected by the Acaeum effect...
This thread already has over 1000 views.... :lol:

The combined prices are well over $85 now and I feel that even our green blooded pointy eared friends estimate may not be high enough....
I would be pleased with the final prices for those if they were my sets.
But, if those were my sets, then they would not be for sale...
Well perhaps set one would be....
