I have the Black Industries edition of Talisman, and from everything I've seen, it seems to be pretty comparative price wise online and in stores, my copy was from a Half Price Books, no real markups or anything, but a gamestore nearby has a copy they are trying to sell for 70-150 bucks, which seemed excessive, has something changed I was unaware of?

I suppose it will get scarce at some point, but I imagine it had a fairly large print run, and seeing as without the conversion kit it is incompatible with the expansions, I can't imagine that there would ever be a great demand for it. I think your game store are trying it on.

Well I'm one of the proud owners of the BI edition, and I bought it ONLY because it was a BI edition.

1-I don't like grey plastic miniatures, which need to be painted;
2-I like cardboard characters which remind the original second edition;
3-I like the larger cards of the BI edition;
4- I'm not going to buy any expansion.

But I wouldn't pay 70-150 bucks the BI edition :-)...

Do you know anyone who agrees with your four points and would like to buy my BI edition for $60?

Or anyone who agrees with some of your four points and would like to buy my BI edition for $55?

Ah, sounded a bit weird. I don't have a comparison point to the FFG personally, but I didn't mind my BI version for 25, I was thinking I got some insane deal, but as it is it sounds like it was just a normal deal, and he is kind of overblowing it. Thanks for the info!

Well, I'll try to find anyone interested ... ...probably in the next two decades I'll find him (the BI edition will become older.... the quotation will increase like Eagle Games' Napoleon in Europe...)cool
