    I demand a reprint

    I fully agree, I too have came to the Runebound table late and become saddened, disilussioned and a little upset at the horrendous prices people are charging for their copies- A game goes oop and within weeks the prices sky rocket, often astronomically Human beings, it seem by nature are greedy and capitalism has gone bonkers. I sometimes wonder if the people buying and selling on Ebay even play the games or even are gamers. A few years back I had a massive nostalgia binge and wanted a bunch of Lego space sets and games I had in the 70s and 80s. I would bid on games like TSR's Knights of Camelot -- not a hot property -- and watch the price sky rocket at times and then see what looked like the exact game box posted within a few weeks with a Buy It Now price $20 to $30 more. (I eventually did score an somewhat overpriced copy that smelled like an attic - still does sadly). Reading some of the descriptions of games and it seems the poster never played the game. Let's not even talk about Lego sets that sell for $1k or more within 5-8 years of going OOP. I have a closet full of Lego sets that I am convinced I could sell in another 10 years and pay for my daughter's college. Runebound is fun but not so much fun that it is worth the prices on Ebay. There are a lot of flaws in the game, which I don't mind over looking for the original price but not for $100 pack of cards. Wait for the 3rd edition or buy the other current RPG like games -- Mage Knight, Pathfinder Card Game, Talisman is fun with lots of drinking and Arkham Horror can keep one busy a long, long time.

    Card holders…

    You can try a blackjack discard holder, something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Trademark-Poker-Deck-Discard-Holder/dp/B0017VDK5I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355702226&sr=8-1&keywords=blackjack+discard Amazon also has a 8 deck holder. Honestly, I never really use them for Runebound since the only deck that has grown insanely large with sleeves is the Market deck and I usually just pull a portion of the deck out for a game. These holders will help keep the stack from falling down.
  3. Zozimus said: I own the Elder Signs as well as the iron gate holders and the tentacle gate holders. I use the tentacle gate holders for Moving Gates, and the iron ones for static gates. I like 'em, though the etching on my elder signs are a bit off centre. I can't actually imagine that there would be worse monster holders than the ones that come with the game. I have all kinds of monster tokens that have been torn or creased by the FFG holders. Really annoying. Does anyone have something that works better? Lots of people on BBG recommend these: http://www.rolcogames.com/product.php?id=83&catid=9 They supposedly don't chew up the monster chits at all.
  4. I agree with everyone else that the Elder Sign markers are great. If you buy nothing else you should get these. I have the black gate style holders and they once glued they are very nice. They don't seem to hide the info on the gate marker like the other version does. The investigator holders for the minis do not bend the investigator tombstone at all. I can't seem to get my minis to fit in these holders secure so I haven't used them much. The tombstone and mini together is a nice look. I have been tempted to get the monster holders but have heard the rumors that they bend the monsters counters but have never found anyone who has actually tried them.

    Deck Boxes

Anyone interested? PM me. I bought two of these deck boxes for Talisman and I have to say they sure are pretty...

    Terrors of the Tomb?

    MSC said: I eventually managed to find terrors of the tomb, dark forest and artifacts and allies on boardgamegeeks with some Belgium sellers. Prices varied from 7-12 Euros. Once seller had all 3 with about 18 Euros for postage and packaging. Another seller had two of them but would send them in small parcels so was only looking at a few Euros delivery. Delivery was actually really quick. All in English and in new condition so I was really happy to finally complete the sets I'd been missing. Where did you find Terrors of the Tomb? That is the only expansion I am currently missing and would really like to add it to my collection.

    we must be due for an annoucment soon!!

    I think getting a City Expansion at some point is a safe bet. For the Village corner, I wonder if they may kick it up a notch over doing a Forest Expansion and do an Underworld Expansion instead, perhaps with an expanded Reaper who sends characters to the end of the underworld and you have to fight to get back out. Could make "dying" in the game interesting. I also never want to see a Timescape expansion again... Once was enough.

Agent of Cthulhu said: (4) Heralds *Genuine large Polyprotec large postcard sleeves 7 x 5 inch (came in 100) FFG, realising that the 7 x 5 inch cards weren't challenging enough to sleeve, cunningly opted for the bizarre card size of 4 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches. Brilliant. They don't fit very well as they move about inside, but it's the only sleeving solution I have found, so far. I recently found and ordered these 4-5/8" x 7-1/2" sleeves meant for post cards: http://www.the2buds.com/susllgpc.htm Seems like with a slight trim they should fit the Herald cards pretty well. I'll post again when I get them in few days.

    Would you ever throw away the Talisman boxes? A storage question.

    I went through the same table issue recently but I wanted something that was big enough to play both Talisman and Arkham Horror with all expansions. The only option I found that would fit both games was buying two of the same folding table (72" x 30") which you can use a single table, with maybe a few side tables, for a small to med game of Arkham Horror. If you use both together it gives a lot of room to play a big game of Arkham Horror or Talisman. I ended up getting the following table but from Costco for about the same price: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cosco-6-Foot-Long-Center-Fold-Table/13269097 For just Talisman (49 1/2" x 39") you could try a 48" circular folding table but you are going to have a slight overhang and probably need extra TV dinner tables. They also seem to go for about $100. A 60" round seems like a perfect size for Talisman but seems like once you go to 60" round folding tables they assume you are running a banquet hall and start charging more or only selling 5 tables at a time: http://www.amazon.com/Lifetime-22970-5-Foot-60-Inch-White-Granite/dp/B0002QZ32M/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1297012633&sr=8-15

    Combining Minis and the Standees

    Has anyone tried these? It seems like they bend the tombstone a bit (at least not as much as the monster stands they make). Does inserting and removing the tombstones scuff up the bottom?

    Storage: What are you using?

    I was just using the plastic boxes they came in but may go look for the Craftman HL3086. It seems like they are pretty common in the Sears around me.

    Deck Boxes

    I agree. It would be nice to have some long in boxes that could be used to draw cards from when playing. My Runebound market deck can barely stand by itself now...
