Castle Perilous in Carbondale, IL, is a treasure trove.

OK, what value does this 20-year-old product have?

I just bought one from Crazy Egor's... $11.95 including guidebook & two dice all in a ziploc bag.

I hadn't seen it on ebay before so I'm not sure what the market might be- maybe we both got wonderful deals? - but I liked the old-school look and grabbed it just because :)

I believe mine was slightly cheaper, but I had to drive three hours to get it.  :)

Indeed.  I had never seen or heard of this product before yesterday.  I first thought it was a Judges Guild item.

I believe NKG have got stacks of them and have been trying to sell them for years. I bought mine from them a couple of years back for about $10, and last time I checked, a week or so ago, they still had stock. I've never even opened mine either.


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

I picked up 2 from NK and for about $10 each and passed the extra copy along a couple years ago.  Bob Liddil did a number of items like this some with The Armory, some with Gamescience, some self-published, etc.
