I just figured I'd ask about these...

I'm assuming that none of them are anything special, but you never know. The modules only cost me 50 cents each so I'm not to worried about what I spent. :wink:

Cheers!

Two of them were a nice buy.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

He most likely meant The Convert and Fez 1: Wizards Vale.  I dont recall ever hearing anything good about either Timemaster or Price of Freedom.  I just picked up The Convert for a bit over $7 so it is not very difficult to find.  Neither is the Fez 1.  Fifty cents is a nice price for all four of these....even if two of them are crap.  :)

For 50 cents each, I think they are all a nice buy.

Price of Freedom may actually be the one worth the most.  I remember someone mentioned the boxed set not too long ago as being harder to find so the module may be worth up to $10.  The others are probably worth about $5 each.

The Convert is a steal at 50 cents. The rest can be had for around $2-3 on ebay at any time, so you did fine.

However, Timemaster is a fun game. Made by Pacesetter who published the much more famous Chill rpg.

Timemaster modules are usually good reading.


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

Your Own Private Idaho is fun. I'd have snapped those up at half a buck, too.

The convert is still pretty easy to find in shrink for $5 or less:

FYI...

I bought them to see if they had any trade value. I'm considering flipping The Cleopatra Gambit and Your Own Private Idaho for something else at a local used game store. (I'm fairly certain that I'm going to keep the other two.)

The store is called Whyte Knight. The stores buys and sells all types of games. The owner has a bit of a monopoly on old school games, so the prices can get kind of high.

I'm not sure how much he'd give me in trade. Probably only a few bucks per module unless it is something he really wants, which isn't a big deal since I only paid 50 cents for each of them.

He gives more for D&D stuff, of course.

I'd agree with that.  Price Of Freedom came and went very quickly (box set and two supplements - that's it).  It has to be a little bit uncommon.

Price of Freedom is actually quite fun, in a sort of Red Dawn sort of way... mix it with Paranoia and it can be awesome.
