Both editions are out of print and the second seems especially hard to find. This was on eBay - it included the original game plus the expansion. Final Price: $28.01

I know this game has gotten some really negative comments, but I love the concept and figured I could work out some variants to help it fulfill it's potential. Final eBay Price: $2.00 (I was the sole bidder.)

Heroquest Quest Pack for the Elf expansion. Complete and in very good + condition. Also had 28 minis and the dice from the basic set. $1.99

I actually got this last week and immediately sold it on ebay for a pretty penny. Kept the extra minis and dice though.

Found this today for 25 cents. Bought it hoping to keep for extra pieces for mine. It was only missing the blue pawn, and the blue tray thinggy that you put over a notebook when you are mister X...I guess that's kind of important though...anyone ever play with out using that? How'd you do it?

£3.99 complete. Although there are complaints about the fiddly bits, I reckon this one is under-rated and will be fun.

£1.99 just missing 1 die. Yeah the rules are poorly written buy they can be figured out. Like the map creation mechanism. I think with a bit of patience this will be pretty decent.

Keytown. Excellent condition and complete. Stated: 141/500 games. $2.99

Don't know anything about this game. Looks interesting and seems to command some good prices on BGGM.

Chula Vista, $1.99. These are selling for $100 on Ebay if shrinkwrapped. Good Deal, eh?

I've posted photos of the new retro-edition, but they are not up yet.

What looks like a punched but unplayed copy of this at Goodwill for $6.99. That's a fortune compared to what I usually pay, but I'm not complaining.

A copy of Loopin' Louie for $1.99 at Goodwill. Fortunately, it works great, unfortunately it has ZERO chicken tokens. What? Did kids eat these things? Hmmm...still the box isn't bad and Louie does loop, so I can prolly get a few bucks out of it.

I was limping out of the store, hanging my head, dragging my feet, because my Sunday trek to Savers had only netted me the grand prize prize of...

...Free Parking for $.99...

Okay, I thought, tomorrow will be another day. At the party, maybe we can play Rigamarole or Alpha Playing Cards or maybe even Totally Gross, or something...

...but then...

I scored Teams of Enemies (because it's always nice to have the eventual option of screwing over your temporary teammates, right?)...

...and right next to Wit's End was Wise & Otherwise. I shivered (just a bit) when I opened the box and saw the inner shrink wrap still intact...

WAOW has been described as Balderdash meets Confucius--I think that's pretty accurate. The graphics are gorgeous and the game just feels cool... But, then again, when I am not playing "Stupud Games" (Fraidy Cats, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Chicken Croquet, etc....) I tend to prefer brainy sorta games... I cannot wait to play!
