Most to pay for a Master Set

I was at Goodwill today and they were selling a Swarm of the Marro Master set for $110. I already own 2 SotM, 3 RotV, and 2 BotU plus I believe this is an outrageous price. So this got me thinking what is the most you would pay for a Master Set?

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

I usually wait until I can find a ROTV for 60 or less.

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

$40 on average. $60 is the absolute upper limit.

I believe you're right. Especially for a thrift store.

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

If all of my collection was lost in a fire and I had no other way to get a RotV, I'd probably be willing to pay about $200.

Given that I already have more than I count, I'd pay $40, because I could then resell it for a great profit.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

Sorry to barge in on your convo, but I recently put some Master Sets up on Ebay, starting at $20. How's that for profit, Sir Dendrik?

There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

Sir Dendrik - that's a good point; what would those with ample or completed collections pay to replace them if somehow lost? Being an Australian player I've always paid a premium for HS - but I've rarely complained as to this day it's the game that we most regularly play (followed closely by Zombicide - that's right, I'm not a 'hardcore gamer').

To replace my collection... my wife would cringe to know the length (and price) I'd go to replace it all...

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

I will pay $60 if I can find em for that, I love the game and have plenty, but I also lost about 70% of my collection to a fire years ago, so I have been buying when it comes around cause I miss all that plastic

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

$110 for a SotM is absolutely ridicules for a Goodwill. I work at a Goodwill so I'm always on the look for scape and other games. I snagged a RotV for $20 and Carcassonne for 99 cents.

Re: Most to pay for a Master Set

Thanks guys when I saw the price i was hoping it included some expansion pieces like wave 9 or Ticalla jungle. Then they let me look at it and it was mostly complete most of the rock terrain was broken and nothing extra was there, so I walked away. Over the past month I went on an ebay shopping spree adding 3 Braves and Brawler sets (my most wanted heroscape) 1 squad of Heavy Gunts, 1 squad of Gladatrons, and 1 Volcarren Wasteland. Tax return well spent.
