Loot!

I interrupt this A-Z posting marathon to show off what an old acquaintance just gave to me...

Oh, and it doesn't stop there.  He also gave me...
D

That's right, the Moldvay Basic with the matching Expert plus B2: The Keep on the Borderlands and X1: The Isle of Dread.  He says he hasn't used them since "way back then and that someone that would use them should have them". 

D&D Holy Grail = FOUND, Cost = FREE.

It's time for the happy dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Ah... a pristine copy of a quintessential vintage game.

    Subjecting it to the wear and tear of actual game sessions is the correct choice every time...!

  2. Oh, man... I am so jealous.

    I've pdf copies of just about everything TSR published - but outside of Boot Hill, I've nothing on my closet shelf.

    That Keep on the Borderlands looks mighty juicy.

    1. I knew you would dig this score, Eric!

      We may need to "discuss" some of those pdf topics... ;-)

  3. Thanks, man. I'm stopping in from A to Z. Glad I stumbled upon this one. Maybe (unless you had a subject) you could talk about loot in a few more days. :)
    Peace,

  4. Those were two of my favorite modules! Hello from a fellow Grognard. I bailed after second edition AD&D, so I'm waaaaay out of touch. Thanks for the memories!

    1. Two of my favorite modules also. I don't blame you - after second edition it gets way different from the old days.

  5. My closest to this is that I found a Moldvey Basic set, still in shrink at Goodwill about 5-6 years ago for 50 cents.

    Nice score for you, though. :)

    1. 50 cents?!?! That' s a heck of a deal! I can find good stuff like that at Goodwill occasionally but the word is out now so it' s picked clean.

    1. Yes, and my mom was amused when I hoped it and stuck my face in the box to sniff that packaged TSR smell. :)
