PW's been sellling around 40 for at least a year.

Now that you mention it, I do have DeathMaze.  Also, I'm setting up a listing on ebay for Citadel of Blood (it'll be a buy it now).

Look, I know this is sacrilege, but some sadly deluded young Lady is selling a mint, un-punched Victory Games Peloponnesian War on the Bay for $40. Worth over $150. An un-punched PW actually has no market value, because it's beyond comprehension. Like finding a factory new P-38 Lightning in some barn. I would rather be tortured to death by Amazons than deal with LapYap, so it's up to you Guys to go to the rescue this time, before the jackals close in.

I wouldn't either! I forget - I used to be a CEO - even if I don't choose to monitize something, I still calculate its value! (Personally, what you got is worth more than a kilobuck in my mind!

Except now that they're MINE ALL MINE, I'm going to find it hard to part with them on ebay.

You know, on ebay, at $20 a game, you have a $1000 there. And you might get more, but I'd think a minimum net of $1000. Wow...

I know other people do that.

And no offense, but I'll make it a free deal for you and give you $30 for Citidel of Blood.

If you have DeathMaze, you have similar counters, Or you might have tossed a copy of this into Sword and Sorcery.

 

And I am not saying the game is or is not worth $30. It might well be you could get more, and it might be you couldn't get $30. I have NO IDEA. $20 is really all I'd honestly WANT to spend, but the concept of you getting 50 games FREE is too humorous to contemplate. :)

This should finish out the SPI / TSR games in the box:

Damocles Mission (unpunched, but counters are diiirrrty)

Nightmare House (punched)

Citadel of Blood (unpunched; looking at this game and the counters, I've seen this system in some other boxed game I have)

Return of the Stainless Steel Rat <really?> (unpunched)

Cassino (unpunched)

The Wreck of the B.S.M. Pandora (unpunched)

 

That's it for the SPI games.  In total there are 51 games.  What are the gems and what are the dogs?  As for counters, I'm hesitant to punch them if I can avoid it.  Would it be weird to scan them and print a "working set" of counters as needed?

Comment by Christian A. Strasser on March 21, 2013 at 10:35am

Continuing along in my catalog:

Iwo Jima (unpunched)

Nordkapp Battle of Norway (?!) (unpunched)

The China War (unpunched)

Sicily (unpunched)

Tannenberg (unpunched)

Albion Land of Faerie (unpunched)

Barbarian Kings (unpunched; I swear I have a boxed / standalone version of this somewhere)

Ragnarok (unpunched)

And still more to go...

Below are the randomizer chits from SPI (apologies to all who've seen them before, I never had).
