Second Hand Games (and art)

Hi folks,

I've just come into possesion of a very large collection of second hand RPGs and wargames. Pretty much all of it is TSR/WotC material ranging from first edition D&D to 2nd Edition AD&D, Marvel RPG, Top Secret, Gangbusters, Boot Hill, Amazing Engine, etc. Some of it is still even shrinkwrapped and the majority of it is in excellent or near mint condition.

I'm going to be cataloging it all over the next week or so but if anyoen has something they'd like me to look out for please let me know.

There are also hundreds of art 'cells' for the front covers of pretty much all of the TSR books printed in the UK/Europe. These are obviously pretty unique and will never be made again. If anyone would like any (favourite book covers, a bit of gaming history - whatever reason) please let me know and make me an offer. I also have access to quite a bit of signed artwork but these will either be ebayed off or sold off at conventions or convention auctions. I also don't have a list of the artwork at present but there's material from most of the famous (and infamous) artists there.

Also, signed copies of books (Limited Edition Alternity, etc) and some old boardgames (Dungeon, D&D Trivia Game, etc).

If interested either drop me a line at home on angus@cubicle7.freeserve.co.uk or give me a shout.

Me and my cold are now going back to checking boxes of goodies.... feels like Christmas :p

Intriguing. I don't suppose you've got any Planescape covers or art in that set?

I'm pretty sure there are some Planescape cells.

I'll have a look at the ones I have and also ask the person I got them from to have a check on the ones still at their place.

Might take a while though as there are, literally, hundreds of the damn things to go through :p

Thank you! And no hurry, honestly. Don't worry.

Shame I don't do D&D.
Where did you find them?

Sounds ideal for the charity auction at Dragonmeet, though.

An old friend had them. He's in the midst of a move and is off-loading loads of old RPG material. I'm helping him clear it.

Some bits will no doubt end up at Dragonmeet, either in an Auction or on a trade stand. Signed artwork will almost certainly be auctioned.

I've been looking for Battlecars for ages.

No Battlecars I'm afraid. Battlecars was originally done by Games Workshop (pre-runner to Dark Future). If I see a copy anywhere I'll try and remember to let you know though.

Arse... (I know it was GW- I have a love affair with the speccy game; now on on my PC. You said ALMOST all were TSR/WoD) I'll be interested any similar things in there- mostly board based. The RPG version of Car Wars. Possibly Top Secret core stuff. Goddamnit man I'm a GEEK. I'm probably interested in all of it.

Boardgame-wise I know there is an early edition of the Dungeon Boardgame and several early wargames. I nabbed The Great Khan Game by TSR as I played it years ago with some really good friends but never had a copy. I remember it being great fun.

There is certainly an original Top Secret boxed set in there. No Car Wars though. As soon as I can I'll get a list posted. Most of it is either the cells or (A)D&D modules/sourcebooks.

oooo

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on the marvel stuff... but if you have a copy of any gamma world stuff, let me know =)

I'll get a list of the Marvel material. I might have some duplicates in my own collection too which I'd be happy to part with. Marvel was probably my longest running regular game in the 80's and early 90's. I keep looking at all my books and longing to run another superhero campaign again. Unfortunayely most of my regular group aren't really into superheroics, nor necessary into the way I'd like to run them.

There was some Gamma World stuff, not a lot, but some. Again I'll sort out a list for you.

Oh I think I'm going to enjoy getting home!

I've actually got them all in the basement at the shop. It's rather a lot to further clutter up our living room :p

Might be working late tonight though, so give me a ring and I can arrange a viewing for you :p

Ooh, nice. I'm looking forward to the list. Any Dragonlance or DarkSuns stuff in there that you know of?
