Seems a seller named 'eurolog1' is selling a large quantity of 2nd edition Timber Tom on eBay - with the Wollemi Pines expansion. $47.14 with shipping to the US.

Feedback indicates positive feedback for 6 sales of the game so far (27 listed as sold as of this writing). I can't vouch past that, except I bit on the offer, as it seems to be the only chance I'll reasonably get for grabbing hold of the expansion now that Marco has effectively vanished.

I'm a bit surprised so many copies of the 400 copy run went unsold. More surprised that they ended up in a stockroom on this side of the Atlantic. Would be sad if Marco lost his shirt on this run with a bunch of unsold copies, or if that had anything to do with him no longer supporting the game (or responding to queries). I know I was willing and eager to drop another $20+ for the expansion (small though it was), and never felt right about Marco offering it for free. But getting the expansion never happened for me, free or otherwise - same for several other people. This eBay auction has me definitely wondering what the full story is, when combined with all the posts of people not getting their copies of the base game and/or expansion.

And no, this does not appear to be the Chinese forgery that has popped up recently. Unless they're printing the game with the original title, or the eBay listing is showing the wrong image.

Did some more digging in old forum posts, trying to get what the old price point was on the game for comparision. Instead I ran into this old post by Marco, where he mentions he used a company called "Eurologistix" to handle his US shipments. Given the similarities with the eBay seller name, my guess is the company he used to ship the games on this side of the pond ended up with a stack of them left over when Marco vanished.

I think I'll contact them, and see if I can get any more info.

Thanks for digging into this. I feel lucky to have picked up a copy when Marco was still around, and I know that I would feel a lot better directing interested people to the Ebay listings if it turns out to be his old US shipping partner. At any rate, it would feel more legit than the "Trail Blazer" copies coming from China.

There was a thread on this posted a week or so ago, but it now appears to have been deleted? Anyone know why the post was removed?

Also, here is a link to the listing: Timber Tom on eBay

I've managed to confirm this. Here is the reply I got from the eBay seller, posted with their permission.

"Yes, we are EuroLogistix, and we were doing Marco's order fulfillment out of Allentown, Pennsylvania. In the last quarter of 2010, he moved on to other ventures & dropped out of sight, leaving us with unpaid invoices and a stack of games, so after waiting a long time, we are selling off the stock."

I didn't know there was an expansion (the theme of the rare Wollemi pines is a nice touch!) and never received it from Marco. Perhaps I wasn't among the first group. Nice to see these copies being sold off on eBay. A shame Marco dropped from sight and contact. Thanks for the thread, Robert.

I posted the original message, it was deleted by the mod due to the eBay reference, which I thought was odd. I have ordered 2 copies, and received them quickly. They are the second printing, which included the Wollemi Pines expansion. Kim at Eurolog was a great to deal with.

Are they Marco's original US shipping fulfillment company?

Yes, as posted in the reply two before yours:

Yeah, I considered buying it twice myself!

But only bought it once. Got the order a few days ago, no problems.

I also noticed that for the first time that even though the full item listing only says "more than 10 available", the item entry on my watchlist says "Available: 94". So they still have plenty left.

Guess those copies that are on the marketplace are going to sit there for a bit, eh?

Got my copy pretty quickly, but couldn't find the four hikers anywhere in the box. Are they packed somewhere special? Before I contact the company for replacements, I just want to make sure I didn't miss them.

When Chris and I were searching the entire package last night looking for them, I wondered what that slot was for!
