Interested, Mike?


I am definitely interested. PM me and we will work out the details  :D

Thanks,
Mike

I've bought Geoffrey's set, but just the contents (no box), to save on shipping.

Question for all: are the boxes for the Goblin's Lair, Dragon's Den and the Haunted Tower the same large size?

Yes.

While on this subject - did I dream it or did someone here once state that ocasionally Jade Hares are found in these boxes. (I know about the mail away form, but didn't some just get the mod put in?)

I think the ones with a Jade Hare in them belonged to people who sent in the coupon, received the module, and put it in the box set.

Yes, this is where I picked up my copy of Jade Hare.  I bought this boxed set from someone locally (to avoid shipping) and it was there inside.

Did you ask the seller if the JH came in the box (excuse the expression), or was received separately?

It's where I found two of the ones I have owned....

FWIW, I always look through used box sets where I find them...Jade Hares, being coverless for the most part, were usually stuffed into boxes to store them....

I did ask and it was received through the mail order offer.  I have also watched 3 or 4 Ebay auctions where JH was included with this set.

Never got a Jade Hare inside, but I did get DA 3,4, B9 and B10 - all near mint about 18 months ago.

That was a great feeling. :D


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

If anyone is looking to unload one of the other sets that are in these big boxes (Goblin's Lair, Dragon's Den or the Haunted Tower) without having to deal with shipping the large box, I'll buy the contents for $5 + $3 shipping.

I'm interested even if the contents are not 100% complete, but I'd need to know how much/what is missing.

Probably missed the boat on this one, but in case anyone still has an unloved Big Black Box game (The Classic D&D, Goblin's Lair, Dragon's Den, etc) taking up valued space, I'd be interested in buying the contents.


Shanghai fun & friends!

Nope.  And neither did I until I got the box.

I just came into a few of these sealed (Goblin's Lair and Dragons Den, classic game)... 2 of each.

Anybody wanna wager what these would go for?

I haven't actually picked them up yet so it's possible I may miss out on them...

If I grab them tomorrow I will be listing them on RPGmarketplace...

Not sure if I wanna do an auction or BIN... I might also list on both eBay and RPGMp.

I've seen used but complete ones go for $20... I figured for minty sealed one maybe $35-40 obo.
