received my Blade of Darkness, it was packed well, and shipped quickly.

You know you're been playing BOD too much when...

I'd like to place an order!

I'd be interested in the following:

Age of Empires - Limited Collector's Edition
Ultima VII Collection
Maniac Mansion 2 - Day of the Tentacle

Gonna take another look to see if there's anything I've missed... would rather do this in one go.

Was quite interested in the QfG anthology, but didn't realise that it would be quite that price!

Great! Let me know what else you'd like and where I'm shipping to, and I'll work out the price. U7 & Conquerer's Strategy Guide already dictate the Medium box, but AoE CE & DotT are both jewel-sized so there should be plenty of room left. And if there isn't enough room and you have a few big-box games you'd like to include, I'll cover the shipping upgrade to a large box* so you get everything you want.

*Dependent upon where I'm shipping. Most of the time it's around a $10-$20 difference, and if that's case then it's no problem. Really need to clear some room over here!


And yeah, that particular version of QFG Anthology is surprisingly rare/valuable. If you were on the fence about it, I'd knock some off the price, but it'd still be in the hundreds.

Okay, had another look, and I'll add Blade Runner to the list.

I think that takes me to $150, and of course there will be a shipping charge.

Should we sort this by PM, or would you prefer email?

The forum's kinda buggy for me, but let's do it by PM anyways since I suddenly have a bunch of email Amazon inquiries on this stuff and don't wanna get it mixed up. With Blade Runner it'll still all fit in the medium box, so it shouldn't be too bad. PM me your Country and we'll work through PM's from now.

Wow nice list but the prices are way outside what I'd pay. I own nearly all of them though so not much of interest of me anyway (including the rare Quest for Glory Anthology which I bought for $20 in a local store). I mostly hunt for bargains on ebay - best way to find a game you want. Colonel's Bequest in perfect and mint condition with everything included (including the pencil) for $10? Yes please!

I honestly don't trust Ebay or Amazon anymore, and neither do a lot of the people who buy from me. I had an order go out awhile ago to Finland and he wanted something from Ebay too, so he paid me for my stuff + Ebay item, I bought the Ebay item for him and waited for it to arrive so I could ship everything out to him in one box.

The game from the Ebay seller was advertised as sealed, yet when it arrived, the entire left side of the plastic was missing. I looked at the bottom and the sticker said "DOUBLE-PACK," so of course what the guy did was cut the damn things in half. The actual buyer didn't mind but I was actually kinda pissed. One thing that I like to strongly get across is that if I say something is in mint condition, it is in MINT. CONDITION. Not to mention supplying pics, answering questions, being available, etc...

You're really not going to find that on Ebay or Amazon, at least not in my experience.

Look what I managed to pick up today!

It had arrived on the monday (when I was at work, unfortunately), but I went along to my local Royal Mail depot to receive it earlier this evening.

Many thanks!
