For information I use boardgamegeek or web grognards (www.grognard.com/).  Isimulacrum has a decent database of information (http://www.isimulacrum.com/)


I can't help you directly but I just got this information in another thread when I ask about a web source for wargames, It is in the Non-TSR Interesting Items Thread.

Hi Wraith - as a sometime wargamer I'm the one who recommended CSW.  There's a discussion thread on East Front here: http://talk.consimworld.com/[email protected]@.ee6c736/0.

It's a very highly regarded wargame in Columbia's block game series (Boardgamegeek entry here http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/77) and you'd probably get some bites on the marketplace forum on CSW.  Go to http://talk.consimworld.com/ and select Marketplace > MARKETPLACE (Buy, Sell, Trade...)

As to value, if it's played I would imagine you would get $30 - $35 depending on condition.  Brand new might be a bit higher (one on CSW Marketplace here http://talk.consimworld.com/[email protected]@.ee7011b/15890 was listed back in Feb at $48 which is a bit more than I'd pay for it, and there's no indication if it went at that price.

One of the running jokes with the Columbia series is that they should sell for more if the stickers are applied since someone's done all the work for you...

Columbia has also put out a 2nd Edition of East Front which has a retail of $99.95.  I imagine $100 was the suggested retail of the original East Front when it was in print as well.

Thank you, one and all. I appreciate all the valuable input. I found what I was looking for. Got most of it from BoardGameGeek.
