While going through a box of other items to list on eBay I found this that I bought years ago and forgot about.

I had a look at the Noble Knights web site and they have the Recon book listed for $40 but do not have the supplement.

Do you think that it would be best to list them together or as separate items?

List them together.

I have tried to sell the Recon rules and screen twice now (as a set) with no luck. I get maybe 1 watcher, but that is about it.

That supplement is far more scarce than the rule book so I would sell tham as a lot.


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

Thanks!
I had a look for the item through eBay but saw mainly the reprint version by Palladium.

I never knew of the supplement, but knew of the game itself.  Palladium offers the original version of Recon for free in their Cutting Room Floor section as a PDF.  That might explain the relative lack of interest in the rules themselves on eBay.

I was watching few days ago one Recon rulebook...


** expired eBay auction **




0.99£ with no bid.

Is it the rule book of your set or another print with no box? It seems to be the first print... RPG Inc.

I have not seen that version before. The one I have pictured above is also by RPG Inc. from Alvin Texas.

The copyright page has a date of 1982 and was designed by Joe F. Martin.

The Sayaret/Track Commander supplement is dated 1983 and is about Israeli-Arab tank combat.

I don't know if that version of Recon in the eBay listing pre-dates or post-dates my copy. The only other version that I was aware of was the later expanded version by Palladium. :oops:

edit: The book was sold as a standalone product. It was not in a box.

Nice! I wonder what I can get for my two books? I'll have to list them soon and find out!  :D
