Oh, the joys of temping. Nothing happening at work, and since I was tracking a couple things on eBay anyway, I decided to sort by highest price and see what BGG-listed games were topping the numbers.

This list excludes stuff like the $500,000 Bernard Maquin gold-and-diamond chess set and fancy backgammon sets; just good old fashioned board games that I could find in the database. (So things like the 1898 Kris Kringle's Visits game and an OOP AH gamed called, imaginatively, The Game of Railroading, didn't make the cut.)

A seller is offering the re-creation version of the 1961 season. Current bid sits at a flat $200. One person has asked if this is the version that would retail for $34....

Hoo boy! Fiscal responsibility can be fun! Well, that is, if you're fiscally irresponsible enough to part with $181 for this. Comes with 101 & 202!

The 1961 version, apparently complete, for just $157.50! (This list is making your average Titan game look downright affordable!)

Well, you know this had to be on here. 100% complete and working (no drooling, please!) for just $149. And at this point, work landed on my desk, forcing me out of eBay.

A copy of this went on ebay.co.uk the other day for over 100 British Pounds. Soon followed by another guy who listed his own copy with a reserve of over 50 quid - didn't see what happened to that.

This one sells for about the same amount, on e-bay, even though it's just an expansion.

Just saw this on eBay at $57 (with an insane $18 shipping)! It says it looks like it's never been used, but still. That's way too high.

EBAY WARNING:

One of these games recently sold for $710.00 on Ebay. Next thing I knew seemingly fraudulent auctions (currently being investigated by Ebay) popped up for the same item, with the same photos, and pretty much the same description (the seller had no feedback: big tip-off)!

This is a lot of money! People are being tempted to do illegal stuff for this game.

WEIRD!!!!
