Re: How do I get into this game?

He is talking about Value Village, Salvation Army and the like (I Think) I once got a SotM set for 5$ at a second hand shop. I always peek into the games section in these places since sometimes there are gems there among all the kiddy games and monoploy.

Ah, hadn't even thought of Salvation Army. Good idea. And 5$?? Wow, deal of the century...

Just curious, what brick/mortar stores have you visited? I can't seem to find jack didley here in Florida.
My best deals have been in Carbondale Illinois's local gaming store, Castle Perilous. I've also gotten many a too-good-to-be-true deal from people that played it when it first dropped, but don't care about it any more.

Though numerous pronunciation attempts have been made, I have recently spurned my moniker. Feel free to refer to me as BowTieJones instead.

Hah, reading this made my day.

Castle Perilous has a used copy of the Marvel Set still, for $100. Someone will eventually pick it up, I'm sure.

Next time you're in Carbondale, let me know! -- it'd be fun to have you over for some gaming.

I might actually be going to SIUC for Industrial Technology next year, so I should be up there a lot I also have family up there (my uncle works in the campus museum), so I'm up there fairly frequently.

Re: How do I get into this game?

I feel you. I'm just getting back in the game after like 11 years. I sold off my collection back in the day and now I'm slowly rebuilding it from the ground up again... it's a pain and the prices are insane but I think it's worth the investment. I've sold a bunch of music gear to help fund my plasticrack habit.

SCAPE OR DIE!
