At the thrice yearly Memorabilia show at the Birmingham NEC, this weekend I saw for the first time an Avalon Hill stand.

They were showing the following games.

And no, this isn't an exciting list!
(However I did get to see David Caradine, Robert Picardo, Mercedes McNab and was in the Restaurant queue with boxer Frank Bruno.)

Thanks for reading.

First time for me. The game wasn't set out but the components were on display. Not too impressed on the quality.
They were obviously not pushing it hard.

Only a small mock setup but I liked the look. I know this has mixed reviews but it is physically nice.

Just components again. No comment.
Never played Risk in any form.

Some figures setup upon the Moon tile.
I'll say it again - never played Risk. And I call myself a gamer?

No picture in file for this. Shame. I drooled. I will get it, play it once all the way through and store it away.

They were giving out free figures from this game: Nautolan Soldier. I got two and I have no idea if they're worth anything. Probably not.

This was set up and the staff were giving demos to the kiddies. Also they had boxes of the Expansiosn there. Didn't get to try it.

Not on the AH stand but this and the next two game I saw for sale.

I used to pine for this game but now I know better. No idea how much they were asking for it. I'll remember to check next time.

Two copies for sale in worse condition than this picture. Unpriced and I didn't ask.

And finally the USA version of this game was available new for £10. Didn't bother though since I spent £25 on a Buffy Ultra Rare for the CCG game. Only 3 more URs to go!
