I was recently reintroduced to Warrior Knights. The expansion Warrior Knights: Crown and Glory so seamlessly adds depth and replayability to the game, I cannot imagine playing the game without it. Many of the guys I play games with have voiced their approval of this game. So I decided to buy a copy of it.

The base game you can get for $30-$40 new. Not too shabby.

The expansion, on the other hand, goes for $80+ because it's out of print. This seems exorbitant. No matter where I looked (amazon, eBay, BGG, etc), this game was hard to find and was going for a pretty penny.

So I thought I might trade for it. I have Eclipse for trade. Surely this would fetch me a copy of Crown and Glory. Nope. The asking prices for Crown and Glory exceeded even my offers to give up Eclipse.

Then I asked the right person. I asked

. He said he rarely played the game. He couldn't in good conscious ask me to mail him Eclipse (the postage would be considerable). So he mailed me his Crown and Glory for free, refusing even to allow me to pay for postage.

His generousity is of course greatly appreciated. Thank you, Moon Knight.

Then I was asked today by

if I would sell him En Garde! along with the cute En Garde!: Inconceivable! promo. I received the promo for free. I am already in the negative karma because of Moon Knight's recent gracious act. I told Knuckles I would send him En Garde for free.

I have found the BGG community to be an exceptional community. One that I am proud to be a member of. Not just because of this occurence; there have been other users who have made the community great. But I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone...

and to pay it forward in my own small way!
