Hey folks. I've been looking at some of these sit on the shelf for a while and they're starting to look all lonely and sad. They need homes! They need gamer homes where they'll have the opportunity to see a table again and be the center of attention. My wife and I just had our first child a year ago and she's taking all the attention we used to lavish upon our games. So, help me get these beauties back into a gaming rotation somewhere.

All of the following games are complete and in like new or very good condition. They have all been played (with the exception of those I mention below in the actual List) so all the chits have been punched, cards unwrapped, etc. We're pretty careful with our stuff though. And I don't think any of these have been played more than a few times. Here's a quick rundown of the items I'm offering:

Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot, Red Booster, Orange Booster, Violet Booster
Reef Encounter
Puerto Rico
Carcassonne
Minotaur Lords
Through the Desert
Magdar
Battleline
Shadows Over Camelot
Memoir '44
Midgard
Colosseum
Lord of the Rings Confrontation
Return of the Heroes
Under the Shadow of the Dragon
Fist of Dragonstones
Dungeoneer: Dragons of the Forsaken Desert



As for the rules of the auction, pretty standard stuff.

1. Bid with a minimum of $1 increments.

2. Buyer pays actual shipping which will most likely be USPS Priority with Delivery confirmation. When possible I'll use flat rate boxes. I'm open to suggestions though if you've got some cheaper alternatives.

2b I'm near Gastonia, NC so if you happen to be local I'm cool with us meeting for pickup and saving you on shipping.

3. I will combine shipping when possible. Again, buyer pays the actual cost.

4. Let's stick with Paypal.

5.The final transaction will be handled through Marketplace.

6. I'll close the auction on May 5th somewhere between the hours of 8PM and 11PM EST, just to keep sniping down. I'll start contacting winners either that night or the next day.

I'm going to use a soft reserve on a few of these that I'd be extra sad to have to let go of for crazy cheap. Just so we're all on the same page, soft reserve means that if the final bid isn't at least equal to my given value I reserve the right to not sell. Feel free to bid under it though, it'll be food for thought and who knows, maybe I'll let it go for that...depends on how I'm feeling that day!

Good luck!

P.S. There will also be a very small, somewhat boring, cheaply made surprise for one questionably lucky winner. I'll give you a hint: Somewhere out there is a fiendish bunny in desperate need of some pork.

More like Brief Encounter, as we only played it twice. What a beautiful game! We really liked it, not sure why it never made it back out.

To be honest I don't think we ever even played this. It has been opened and punched though. The only time our group ever played, it was with a friend's copy.

Played two or three times. Cards are still stiff and crisp. Being the generous fellow I am I'll even throw in the Errata sheets I printed off...IN COLOR NO LESS!!!

Played maybe five times, still looks brand new. Included are the sandwich bags I've used to so lovingly divide out the cute little after dinner mint camels. Note that the picture here is not the same as the one I have. I'll see if I can find a pic of the one I have and link it in the comments.

Played once...but don't let that lead you to believe that its not a perfectly riveting game of intensely dramatic play. I mean...its Magdar...there's lava...and, uhm, a demon...who will KILL YOU!!!!

Just checked and though the game is otherwise like new, the instruction manual is mint until the back cover which is in mysteriously bad shape. Almost like its been shredded, by...CLAWS!!! MAGDAR CANNOT BE CONTAINED!!!

Seriously, the back cover is terrible. Its just an advertisement for Citadels, but still, you've been made aware.

I actually really liked this game but we only played it a couple times. Let this be a lesson in why not to beat the wife at a new game in back to back plays. Funny how she loves Traders of Genoa, a game in which I've yet to beat her.

Anyway, this thing is like new.

Yikes!! I am indeed getting rid of SoC. Great game, this copy has been played maybe a half dozen times. Great shape! Hope I don't regret this one...

And the first person to crack wise with a bid in the likes of "I'll bid SOMEWHAT higher than that last bid but certainly not with my HIGHEST bid" is immediately disqualified from the auction. You'll understand once you've played it...

Soft Reserve: $15

The wife and I enjoyed this quite a bit and probably played it six or seven times. Hasn't seen any play in quite a while though. Everything is in fantastic shape and all here.

Played once. Not a bad game we just never really gave it much of a chance. I'll probably miss this one some day. There's a small dent in the upper left corner of the face of the box, right on the edge. Nothing major and all the innards are perfect. And lets be honest, a game about vikings destroying each other for area control in the face of Ragnarok should probably have a ding or two to the box...we're talkin' VIKINGS HERE PEOPLE!! They get pissed off when they DON'T DIE IN BATTLE!! So anyway, yeah, the box has a small dent.

Note, this is not the Deluxe edition and it travels very well. Probably put ten plays into this one. Still in practically new shape.

Some people seem to really like this one. We played it once. Everything's in fantastic shape...except for my enthusiasm for this game. I really should have liked this game, and it was okay....it just didn't have that pop to it. Hopefully you'll love it...

Opened it and looked at it. Never used it. The sheets are unpunched, everything is new inside. The box cover has a little flare to it. Not like the cool 37 pieces kind of flare but the bulged out on the sides type. Its not very bad but you can notice it when you look for it. Otherwise an almost new copy.

I really like this game but most of my sessions have been played with a friends copy or online. I can't remember if my wife and I ever used our copy or not. Needless to say, its in fantastic condition.

Played once. The cards and pieces are in great shape. The case has pretty typical shelf wear, nothing excessive.

So here's the deal. The game is in great shape but also has the Red Booster mixed into it. No way am I going through and digging those out so consider it a freebie. I don't have the Red box any more either, its all in the base set box. I just checked and the instruction manual has slid over inside the box and so it looks like its been lightly folded down the center. Its not a sharp crease or anything but definitely has a memory bend to it. It also appears that we thought it a good idea to check off the check boxes on the back of the instructions showing which carrot was the Magic Carrot each time (The page is actually designed for this). It appears that we played seven times. The witchdoctor carrot seems to be the most magical..
