hey guys

once upon a time, i picked up a book in a lot of other things and its been sat around since then cos i didnt know what to do with it.

its the booklet from the battle of helms deep (from the lord of the rings trilogy).

its a little beholder size booklet, light blue in colour and its (c) Richard Jordison, 1974.

Is it worth anything? was going to sell it but dunno what to do with it at the moment.

any help would be most appreciated, as if its worth sod all, i will just file it with my other stuff.

Al

There is a review of the game on the tolkienlibrary.com website that states:

"This is the first Tolkien hex based wargame"

The complete review is located at:

If the game is complete with map and counters then it would probably sell very well.  CrazyEgor (I think) has sold a number of them at a very nice price $100+ range maybe?  If its just the book, maybe $30ish - just a guess.

it is just the book, so i guessb there may be a little interest, which would make it worth listing eh? :)

A book like that is always worth listing.  Whether its complete or not I'm sure it is still pretty rare and someone will want it.  There might be enough scans on the internet to find the map and counters as well.

The link that I posted above to the review includes images of the map and counters (both 1st and 2nd editions).

There is an entry for this game on BoardGameGeek - see http://69.13.44.3/game/12743



From that you can see somebody has linked in a current eBay auction for a copy -  
** expired eBay auction **
. EU 43.50 currently with 7 hours to go.



If you create yourself a BGG profile you could put up that you own and have parts for trade and see what interest that gets first - and if you und up listing the thing you can even link in your auction for the book alone.



Very useful function I find!


Cheers!
