What's the market like on these?  Not a big board game guy myself and didn't see much eBay-wise to indicate how these do in shrinkwrap.  Here's a partial list to give you some idea what's there:

Task Force - Starfleet Battles
Avalon Hill - Feudal, U-Boat
Nova - Ace of Aces (blue & red)
Mor-de'Bres - Serial Killer (not in shrink, but in the original zipper bag)
Golden - Key to the Kingdom
3M - Twist, Mr. President, Quinto, Acquire, High-Bid, Stocks & Bonds, Executive Decision, Bazaar, Breakthru, Facts in Five

Thanks guys!

Task Force - Starfleet Battles:

If you are lucky you will get original retial price. The exception is the first and second printings of the game. The SFB pocket game (TFG #4) ranges from $15 to around $25. The first printing of the boxed set (second game print) will hit the same number or higher if it is mint. All the rest will sell, but generally around retail or lower. Send me a list and I can be more specific. Or I will buy it and save you the ebay fees - I collect SFB.

Avalon Hill - Feudal, U-Boat

Generally do ok. Not a huge AH guy, but in great shape these can surprise you and range from low 20s to near or above $40.

Nova - Ace of Aces (blue & red)

Again, a bit of hit and miss but can very well

Mor-de'Bres - Serial Killer (not in shrink, but in the original zipper bag)

No clue :D

Golden - Key to the Kingdom
Again, call me Mr. Clueless. :D

3M - Twist, Mr. President, Quinto, Acquire, High-Bid, Stocks & Bonds, Executive Decision, Bazaar, Breakthru, Facts in Five

Well, get what you can. Fairly common games and never seem to demand much repect or cash. Maybe Bazaar as seem the least common of the bunch.

Hope all that helps.

PS: I have not forgot about the MDG module, but I am still woking on it.


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

The Acquire can be well over $100 if it's an original edition with the world map. Also, any edition that has wood pieces (not plastic) will fetch a fair amount.

The most common by far is the 1968 edition which will either be a brown or yellow plastic board.
