I have a friend with a copy of the 1986 gibson games version of britannia still in shrink, but I cannot seem to find prices for what this would currently be selling for anywhere.

please could anyone advise whether this edition is actually work something or whether it has been complete replaced by the FFG version

Thanks
clare

It's a completely different edition from FFG's. It's closer to the AH version, though there are minor rules differences. I would expect it's probably around the same price as the AH version, though it may be more due to rarity.

I am not convinced that it is all that valuable, except as a "historical curiosity", in today's market of high quality and color printing.

I'm similarly not convinced it has any additional value, but it's possible that it does. A quick look on eBay's completed items puts prices around the same as the AH version.

Search eBay for "Gibsons Britannia Game" and filter for completed items and you should see some hits from the UK. I had 3 that ranged from around $10-35.

There were fewer copies (10K) of the Gibsons than the AH version, but it may still be a large enough number that it isn't rare. Rarity has to have something to do with pricing. And demand: and I think of the FFG version as a "fixed" version, closer to what I intended, than Gibsons. (AH is the worst.)
