I mentioned to another person interested in Camp California that I would be receiving a copy in a few days along with Lords of Thunder, and Vasteel. I woke up to quite a few PM's asking for Camp California. So I am assuming it is pretty sought after. A quick eBay search listed no current auctions and 2 completed at $169.99 each. i know it's probably not worth that much with ebay and paypal fees taken into account, + general lower forum prices. But I am curious what a fair forum price is on these 3 titles? I will be posting pics back here hopefully before the weekend and be ready to trade or sell these suckers as I have no need for Camp California and Vasteel, and already own Lords of Thunder. I am asking for general prices for games in well taken care of condition, and complete, if I were to sell or trade. Here is what I am figuring. It's really hard to tell with all the eBay impulse purchases on Turbo Stuff.

Lords of Thunder - English - complete $70.00 shipped
Camp California - English - Complete $150.00 shipped
Vasteel - English - Complete with both inserts - but missing slip case. $110.00 shipped

Are those prices fair, low, or high?

Here is a small list of my wants. I'll probably take, and even prefer Japanese on most this stuff unless noted.

TOP WANTS:
Arcade Card Duo - Want complete one
Dungeon Explorer 2 - USA ONLY
Y's IV translation


Other Wants:
Chiki Chiki Boys
Double Dragon 2: The Revenge
Dungeon Explorer - USA ONLY
Blazing Lazers

PM sent for Vasteel!  (Unfortunately somehow my copy got damaged, sadface.)  And FWIW the last one that sold here went for I think $70, although I will pay your asking price.

I'm not sorry about this, as I'm not sorry about ANY attack by the goverrats.

Based on completed eBay auctions, your asking prices are high.  All three have sold repeatedly for less.

I haven't been in the market for Camp California in quite some time but it always used to fetch $50-60 on ebay. That is quite a price hike if it fetches 3 digits now!

Rather speculation.

That's why I was asking for suggestions on pricing. I wanted to be fair. I have been out of the duo for awhile. I didn't set them at eBay prices. I stated that in the first post. They are 15% below the average sale price, and I shaved a bit more off.

The average price for eBay auctions in the last year:

Camp California - $119.14
Lords of Thunder - $75.33
Vasteel - $84.46

The only one your asking price is under is LoT, and that one's all over the map, selling one week for $100 and $50 the next.

I have no idea how my posts keep getting put in the pcfx section. I triple checked this time because I did the same thing earlier in the week.

Maybe a mod is messing with your mind?

I was thinking that exact same thing :-)

I received my tracking number today. Games are in transit coming from only a few cities over. Hoping they are here tomorrow, but most likely Saturday. I will try and get some pics up then.

I decided to back out of the purchase, Vasteel is available still!  Seller is a great communicator.

Free bump!
