Everyone has something in their collection that is too valuable or large to get rid of, here is mine.



You know you should get rid of it, but you can't or wont.

(Find a buyer who would pay a reasonable price for it all, and no this is not a solicitation.)


Feel free to add yours, ya know ya got em'.

I’ve owned ASL twice, sold it twice, and said NEVER AGAIN. I bought ATS as a “life style” free alternative. I’ve got a $400+ wrapped up in it; counters are in Plano boxes and inseparable. It’s either sell it all or keep it all… TBTF

I, too, bought and sold a pretty big SL/ASL collection years ago. And I never wanted to go through that again.

But after being away from that game for ten or fifteen years, my fond memories prompted me to try a free print-and-play demo of Lock 'n Load: Forgotten Heroes – Vietnam. Then another, for the LnL game featured here.

It brought back memories, and I kinda liked it. So, finally I broke down and bought a real Lock 'n Load game.

It was like stepping into quicksand. Before I even got that first game in the mail, I spotted a "last chance" notice for another game in the series, so I ordered that too. Then a third, newer game in the series was temporarily discounted, so I ordered that one.

Soon I made the mistake of browsing around eBay, where I found more games in the series. Before long, I owned a bunch of them--and I had yet to actually play one!

Then I get a trade offer for Lock 'n Load Tactical: Day of Heroes that's just too good to pass up. And now I own all but one of the available LnL games, so I go back to eBay and snatch up a copy of Lock 'n Load: A Ring of Hills.

By this time, my goal isn't to play the game anymore; it's just to complete my collection. So I head for the LnL Web site and make sure I've preordered everything including Lock 'n Load: Heroes of the Gap.

I sure hope this turns out to be a wonderfully satisfying game series, because my collection is now TBTF.

I have 2 copies of the base game and nearly every published map. I am only missing Ted Alspach's Bay Area expansion and the original Winsome Games printing of Austria, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. So, that's about 40 expansions.

Not only would be be traumatizing to sell this off, but it would be a tremendous pain.

Edit: This may be the wrong place for this post, as I would never sell this game

Highlander is a game that very few people care about anymore. At its peak, it was never really one of the "biggies" in the CCGs world. But I was one of those who was very into it back in the day. (It is a very good game, warts and all). As interest waned and people started selling off their cards, I scooped up a lot on ebay. Eventually I hit that critical point where I had enough that a "complete set" was an actual possibility.

Now mind you, 1 of each card wasn't enough for me. I decided to get enough cards to make any possible deck. Since most cards in the game are allowed in multiples up to 6, that's 6 each of most cards, less for the "Restricted" ones. In any case, a whole lot of cards. Now it seems most of the cards have dried up. The people who wanted to sell have sold, and everyone else is sitting on theirs (or have thrown them away, maybe..)

And here I sit on a collection of 1000's of cards, 42 cards away from "Completion" (plus another 153 if you count the "Black Raven" set that was published later by a different company).

Then they started a 2nd Edition... and I gave up. I still intend to finish my 1st edition set, but I don't have the heart to do it all over again.

And like the guy in the twilight zone who broke his glasses after finally having time to read all the books in the world... I can make nearly any 1st Edition Highlander deck, but have no one to play with.

It'll hardly ever see any substantial table time, cause my wife hates it as much as no other game in my collection, I myself am not completely enamoured either, but I just spent too much and it look too pretty to junk it.
One day I might but until then it's probably just one good looking box on the shelf.

As I made this geek list I did a mental "walk through" of the game room and missed this one. I do use the Chaos deamons for #3 though. The huge dwarven, Slann and Chaos remainder are TBTF.
