Hiya All



I have been looking for an underdark campaign and found a few on e-bay ranging from about 10 pounds to 60 pounds+(shrink wrapped).  What would one pay for this box set



E.g.




** expired eBay auction **

Thanks All

I think those prices are ridiculous.  Personally, I would pay no more than $25, and that would have to be in excellent condition or shrinkwrapped copy.

My advice is to keep looking. Night Below sets commonly go for $10 and under + shipping. A shrinkwrapped set might command higher prices. A used, complete set should not.

My advice would be don't buy from Troll & Toad. Not only are their prices most often rediculous, buy they often exagerate about the condition of whot your buying. They don't refund you postage when you're stung and have to ship goods back to them, and they won't post pictures of what they sell because it stops people buying stuff when they see what it actually looks like.

Stay well away, and you'll no doubt find a cheaper and higher quality products for your patience. All but the rarest of things crop up on eBay all the time. I think it was Grodog that said if you're willing to wait, sooner or later you'll get what you want at the price you want to pay on eBay.

I sold one on Ebay not too long ago - it went for $23.50 which I thought was about right.

I recently (2months ago?) paid £6.50 (via best offer!) +P&P for a real minty copy, so they are around for less than you might expect.   :)
It was up as a BIN/Best offer of £19.99.

I regularly see these not get far above a $0.99 opening bid, even for a complete set.  I wouldn't pay more than $10-15.

I got a Night Below in good condition with poor box for $5.
It is complete and contents are just fine.

All I wanted was a playing copy so I was quite happy with that price.
Shipping cost me more than the box set did.

I am seraching for a Under Mountain also (The first one), but wont pay much for it, as I know with enough time, I will find one at a good price.
As for the Night Below, I am looking for a playing copy, not Shrink Wrapped.
But I would be happy to de-shrink one if it was cheap. :twisted: .
