What would you expect to pay for an AD&D 2nd ed starter set. Box a bit knocked but books in good condition

I am going to assume this is what you are talking about:

These are more expensive if you want to buy them in the US.  They seem to be more plentiful in the UK.  In the UK, you can grab them as cheap as 5 - 10 pounds for a reasonably good condition one + shipping.  In the US, they tend to be more in the $30-$40 range.

So, since I am traveling to England in a couple of weeks, you are saying I could maybe pick up a few at a FLGS, bring them home with me and make a few bucks?   :?:   Or is there something else with a greater price disparity you would recommend?  :idea:

I would actually recommend it.  I have a couple extra copies at my brother's place in Edinburgh that he might going to bring back sometime this summer :)



Some of these games seem to sell cheap in the UK.  Here's a "New Dungeon Board Game" that sold for $1.50 in an open auction:

Even with the international shipping, it probably would be cheaper to buy it there and ship it here.  They tend to sell well here too.

That is because they simply do not come around that often. I have always wanted to pick one up, but it is barely outside my 1e - B/X limit. But they do go for around $30 or more when they do show up.

They really are difficult to find in North America.  Can anyone verify that they were actually released in North America or if it was a UK only release?

Very good price on that copy of Hellbound.
