Just wondering how expensive and/or rare this little game is, and whether anyone has it, and if its worth trying to hunt down.

I'll say it is rare.  I remember seeing one a number of years ago before I really started collecting nonTSR.  It seemed to be well sought after then but I don't remember the sales price.

I have tried tracking down a copy of this one with no luck.  I think it is still on a number of people's list.

A quick Google search will reveal a pretty decent pdf... easy anough to print and staple. Throw in some dice from a constructable card game and you're all set.

OK, well, there is a current complete set of these available on eBay... but, I am not sure what to offer on the bid. I'll talk it over with the wife and then decide what to do... unless someone here snaps it up before then, that is.

Compared with the recent sales, the current price of the listing is reasonable:




** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **




These ones added up to over $1K.

Only one auction went high and there were a lot, lot more in those sales (both in numbers and state of completion) vs. that $750/best offer. Might still be better off asking the winner if they're wanting to ditch the duplicates in the first instance?

Excluding the 2nd edition of Dinky Dungeons, anyone know if these products had multiple printings or if some variation is expected in the add-on materials, such as the Adventure Map that accompanies the rulebook (for example, I have one set that has a greyscale version [not done by the previous owner] and a simple black-and-white one [not sure if its just a photocopy or not])?

Do you know how many Character Sheets are supposed to come with the Dinky Dungeons rules? Again, I have variable amounts which could be due to someone playing with them, but I'd like to know what to expect for completeness's sake.

And, lastly, anyone know whether these items were made (being mentioned in the catalog that comes with the booklets, I am curious...):

Doc's Pow Cards Set #1

Doc's Pow Cards Set #2

Moxie Tuff-Guy Wrestling

I guess everyone gets another chance to see some of these sell  :D

Main listing


** expired eBay auction **



and three other single book listings by the same seller

WOW!!

I sold the only two I had several months ago to Noble Knight. It was the only two I had found in years of looking. I think I got them both from Burntwire Brothers

I say again....WOW!

Wish I hadn't decided to sell all non-essential FRPG gaming stuff.

Oh well

There was this previous sale of Dinky Dungeon items, which was a bit of a better deal:


** expired eBay auction **

Yes, the seller wised up and decided to actually have an auction.
